My partner and I are very close to booking Kuramathi for our honeymoon next August - we found a great price with Travel Lab which seems too good to be true!
Just a few questions we have though -
1) What is the snorkeling like for beginners?! We have snorkeled a few times on previous holidays to the Caribbean a good few years ago - but these were mainly guided tours in very specific places for tourists etc. so I imagine the Maldives will be different to this. We are confident swimmers - and will hopefully be staying in a Jacuzzi Water Villa.
2) We have been quoted a great price for a jacuzzi water villa (which is definitely what we wanted - given to us through free upgrade) but on basic all inclusive. Now my partner and I aren't huge foodies or wine drinkers - if we go out for a meal we will only ever have a main course (occasionally a starter or dessert to share) so we don't think it is too important that we upgrade as we may just pay for a few meals whilst we are there as the prices don't look too expensive. So my question is - what are the buffets like on the island? Also - if we did decide to upgrade, does anyone know how much this is to do on the island?
3) No room service/alcohol in rooms - I notice that with travel lab we get a honeymoon special of a fruit basket, 4 course meal and a bottle of sparkling wine - would this wine be left in our room does anyone know, or presented with the meal? And if not in the room - is there any way of buying a bottle of champagne and taking it back to the room? Just we would like to enjoy this on the decking of the jacuzzi water villa one evening.
Any other tips/info etc. about Kuramathi before we book would also be greatly appreciated!
Sorry for the long post
I look forward to your replies.
