A breezy, open-air pavilion with wide overwater deck. Day beds, pods, relaxing lounges. So many choices. Delightful afternoons and laid-back evenings. Fine wines colour the twilight hours. Passing marine life visible from your seat.
Anticipation builds as you await tonight’s live band. It’s said to be a good one. The day recedes. Smooth DJ sets and creative cocktails, a relaxed mood that takes you long into the night. Exhilarating Maldivian dancing. A perfect blend of lively and chilled, enjoying the band or stargazing on daybeds.
On the island’s western end, perfectly angled. Arrive just in time, order a light snack. A cocktail to hand, barefoot luxury, sand beneath your feet. You sit back. Dazzling colours over the Indian Ocean. A magnificent sunset. Quiet all around, except for the whispering tide.
You remember the day’s adventures with warm smiles, but the night has only just begun. Kalhu at the karaoke bar, nestled in a quiet corner. A wide selection of spirits and vintages.
The room bursts with song. The latest equipment, loaded with perennial favourites and chart-toppers. The night rushes on, filled with laughter and bold choruses. Fun for all.
No interruptions. Just the two of you and the sounds of the sea. The stars above. Sumptuous courses arrive, one after the other. Fresh tuna carpaccio, braised rack of lamb. Thoughtfully matched fine wines.
You toast. Eyes meet, telling stories. Everything perfect. Personal Thakuru on hand. You will remember this night. The cool sand underfoot, the moonlit waves stretch onward.
Exchange a knowing look, it’s decided: tonight is a stay-in night. Peruse the menu. Kurumba’s wide selection of dining options, delivered to your doorstep 24 hours a day. Fire up the dvd player, share a pizza over a good film. Or an intimate full-course meal, carefully laid-out. In the mornings, a continental breakfast, eggs cooked-to-order or international dishes to choose from.
