Ok briefly

Kuredu is a large island ,very well maintained with nice modern accommodation. The island has an adults only section that includes it's own pool,bars and restaurant . The beaches are nice with a sand bank at the one end of the island . The food is good .

The down side is it's size , poor reef and feeling a bit like a resort in parts .

For a better version of the island check out Vilamendhoo. Also take a look at Komandoo,Reethi Beach ,Athuruga all subject to your budget :)

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

What do you mean "It feels like a resort" in some parts?

How large is the island?

Do the beach huts have Jacuzzi's?

Thanks

It feel a bit like a resort in the family area because it's busy around the pool ,and you have entertainment at the bar some night . It's much quieter on the O side of the island .

The island is about 1 mile long by half mile wide.

Some of the beach huts have Jacuzzi, they are called Jacuzzi Beach Villas. ( JBVs )

If you share your intended total budget we can suggest island for you :-)

I think Darryl explained it well.

We loved our time on Kuredu.

The central area of the island is busy with occasional discos and music, but also nice to spend time there as it be very quiet on the 'romantic' side of the island :-) The best of both worlds i think.

It's big by Maldivian standards but it is still a small island, nothing like any other holiday destination.

The only thing I would ask, how important is snorkelling to you?

• If you want to see an amazing coral reef close to the island, then try another island that Darryl suggested.

• If you are beginner snorkelers and would be amazed to swim with turtles, sharks and big schools of fish then I would highly recommend kuredu for young honeymooners.

You may get 10-11 nights on the other islands but I am not sure it will stretch to a full 2 weeks but I don't think you will get 2 week AI in a JBV on Kuredu either.

Have you contacted an agent yet ?

On the island above its £4100 for 2 weeks AI flying from Glasgow.

Yea we have spoke to a few but just unsure where to go for as its not a destination we have gone before if that's makes sense.

A women at my fiancés work has been there before.

She is only part time so she rarely gets to see her.

I then looked the Island up and its beautiful.

What I am looking for is...... :)

Nice staff

Relaxed atmosphere

Nice beach

Blue/Green sea

Snorkelling

Jacuzzi in our room

Beach hut or similar

Just a nice relaxed Honeymmon, we usually go to quite busy resorts - Sharm/Bulgaria/Turkey ect ect

Hope this makes sense.
