Kurumba Maldives Honeymoon - Day 2

I have read in many travel blogs that words cannot describe the beauty of the rising sun when its first rays strike the beautiful waters of Maldives. So we began day 2 in feverish excitement, almost unable to sleep, waiting in anticipation to enjoy our early morning walk.

When we stepped out of our beach Bungalow the first sights that greeted us was mind-blowing. Not a day has passed by without hubby and me taking a look at those snaps from that morning.

Though Kurumba Maldives is in one of the larger islands it took us only 1 hr to walk at a leisurely pace around the island. Post our walk we were ready to take a quick dip at the resort’s swimming pool. Kurumba unlike many other Maldives resorts, does not have an infinity pool, but the in house pool is large and good to burn a few calories (before you gorge on the delicious food ).

Kurumba Maldives Honeymoon Breakfast Buffet @ Vihamana 

We had booked for a B&B package and hence the buffet breakfast was complimentary with the room. The breakfast spread was very satisfactory and had a good selection of food items for both Vegetarian and Non Vegetarians and we never got tired of the food during our stay of 7 days

Tip : It is better to choose the B &B package as this gives you the option of trying out Kurumba’s signature restaurants for dinner.  Half board and full board packages have lunch and dinner included only at Vihamana restaurant which can get a little repetitive.

Kurumba Maldives - Activities on Day 2

Glass Bottom Boat: 

Kurumba Maldives has a lot of inhouse activities/excursions and the details of the same is communicated via a newsletter the previous day, post which you can reserve your participation. Some activities repeat itself 2-3 times per week and you can chose the same based on weather conditions.

The day was bright and sunny and we decided to try the glass bottom boat tour around Kurumba Maldives. This is the best alternative for non divers / snorkelers to get up close with the brilliant aquatic life in the Kurumba reef as the glass bottom boat offers clear views of the varied marine life. The excursion is for 1 hour as the boat slowly takes you around the island and since it was a clear day we really enjoyed the experience. Definitely one to try when the sun is out.  

Kurumba Maldives- Exploring the island

Post our glass bottom boat ride we wanted to explore the island and the various in-house facilities of Kurumba Maldives.

The Sand Bar :  The beach bar is located on the opposite side of the island closer to beach bungalows 160-175 ( 2 min walk ) and they serve a  variety of cocktails and finger food to appease your hunger all through the day . Do not forget to try the cocktail of the day.

Kurumba Maldives -Renewal of Vows :
Been married for long and want to reaffirm your commitment to each other then why not renew your vows in traditional Maldivian style with white sand beneath your feet and the gentle sound of the waves.  The place where the renewal of vows ceremony takes place is really beautiful and probably some day if I return would like to try it out.

However our outdoor activities and exploration were cut short by the huge tropical storm that hit us all of a sudden in the evening. It rained for nearly 2 hours in the evening it really was a sight to watch the coconut trees swaying dangerously in the winds.

Dinner on Day 2 @ Kurumba Mahal:

So post our Italian fiasco on day 1 we wanted to play it safe and chose Kurumba Mahal, the signature Indian restaurant, for dinner and it did not disappoint. The ambience was excellent and the dishes that we tried were as tasty as any that we have tried in some of the better north Indian restaurants in India.

A special thanks to Mr. Fernando ( F & B ) who takes care of the Indian restaurant for making the dinner and our stay memorable.

Thus came to an end to a hectic day 2 of our stay and we just could not wait for day 3 to begin.
