    Pocket Guide: Maldives

    Pristine palm-fringed beaches, crystal-clear waters and a life of luxury is what attracts so many people to Maldives hotels. And it is rare that anyone is disappointed: wherever you choose to visit, from a choice of nearly 1200 islands, a taste of paradise awaits.

    The islands are strung out like glimmering beacons in the Indian Ocean, offering you some of the world’s best diving and snorkelling sites, as well as plenty of water sports and opportunities to just relax in idyllic surroundings. You’ll find that the richness of the marine life is mirrored by the delicious fine foods served in the gastronomic restaurants when you finally decide to surface for air.

    Areas & Neighbourhoods: Where to Stay in the Maldives

    Malé – Book a hotel in the buzzing capital city of Malé: a densely crowded and feels nothing like the relaxed islands that surround it. Yet, here you can find some fine shops and a host of great art galleries and museums. If you can tear yourself away from the beach, that is!

    North and South Malé Atolls – These atolls offer a different world to the capital altogether, yet they are just a short hop across the ocean away. Areas of the South Malé Atoll will suit the more adventurous traveller, whilst the North keeps it strictly luxury. On both you will find stunning natural beauty, both above and below the water. The channel dividing them is packed with excellent dive sites but, if it is the surf you are here for, the North Malé Atoll is where some of the Maldives’ best waves can be found.

    Southern Atolls – The islands here tend to be much less developed, which is perfect if you are looking to get away from it all. Here you can still discover the traditional Maldivian way of life, but you are never too far away from the safari boats, dive sites, surfing trips and watersports that make staying on the islands such a pleasure.

    Baa Atoll – Amongst the 13 islands that make up this atoll you will find the arts and crafts of the Maldives. They are known for their artisanal lacquer work and the production of feyli, a fine woven cotton sarong. The Baa Atoll is also a designated UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, recognised for the diversity of its marine life, and the sites it harbours where whale sharks and manta rays come to breed.

    Addu Atoll – Located in the far south of the Maldives is a heart-shaped atoll that boasts colourful coral gardens teeming with marine life that are ideal for snorkelers and divers alike.

    Things to See with a Hotel in the Maldives

    The capital city, Malé, has the pick of the museums and galleries: a trip here makes a refreshing break from all that paradisiacal beach beauty. Yet, what most people come to see in the Maldives are those stunning sunsets over pristine beaches which can be enjoyed on boat cruises, from the air in a helicopter or simply by ordering a cocktail and laying back on the sand.

    Things to Do in the Maldives

    Take a boat trip to secluded beaches on uninhabited islands and play Robinson Crusoe to your heart’s content, until its time to return back to your resort and be wined and dined once more. For a shot of pure adrenaline you can swim with a whale shark or watch a hammerhead feast on unsuspecting prey. Snorkel trips will bring you to vividly coloured coral gardens that you can marvel at, and often include some freshly cooked fish barbecued on the beach for lunch. You can head for the surf spots to try riding the waves, and there will be a beautiful backdrop to compensate any embarrassing wipe-outs you may suffer. Back on dry land why not enjoy home-cooked Maldivian food with a local family and discover the bustling markets and local cooking techniques? Most of all, though, just relax and enjoy being in paradise!

    "Absolute Paradise "
    My wife and myself stayed here in late Sept for my 50th birthday and it was paradise , from the moment we booked the communication with the resort admin was first class and everything went like clock work . we stayed in a deluxe beach villa which was worth every penny , the resort spa was unbelievable and the lady the ran it sorted us out with our own custom package which meant that a visit was made every day , highly recommended . We were fortunate to have Adam as our waiter , he was magnificent , the food was beautiful and the chefs curries were out of this world . We made a few excursions , the deep sea fishing ( caught 3 sailfish and 4 wahoo wahoos ) , the snorkeling with manta rays ( never to be forgotten ) the coral reef snorkeling and the night time fishing were amazing . The resort staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and deeply proud of this resort , quite rightly so . We were all inclusive and the 2 bars stocked top quality drink , the cocktails were immense and there were only a few that you had to pay extra for , we also got water every day provided in our Deluxe Bungalow . I cannot recommend this resort highly enough and I will be back , only this time I will have my trainers with me for the 7pm football match with the staff .

    "it is real Paradise! "
    Kuredu doesn't give a chance to choose other island for the next time. The resort is fantastic, especially if u are staing on water villa (Sangu residents have the best privileges to live near the Split Beach and use all restranes and swimming poolls of the resort, including the privat ones). Most of the Resort staff are kind and friendly, all the time smiling. Programm of island entertainment is a interesting. there are some events during the day. in evening we were listening live music in one of the resort bars. I think that underwater wolrd of the island not so rich. Coral reef was damaged, but u can see a lot of colored fishes of different sizes, even sharks. The most fabulous impression - swiming with turtles (Kuredu resort counts about 40 turtles that live near the island)
