The selection of wining and dining venues on the resort isle of Kuramathi is truly outstanding. Not only does the hotel offer 3 main restaurants, all of which dish up extravagant buffet meals three times daily, Kuramathi also boasts a grand total of 7 a la carte restaurants serving a variety of cuisines from across the globe. Private dining experiences, including romantic beach dining for two, add to the diversity and pleasure of Kuramathi’s culinary choices, and if you feel in need of a refreshing beverage or a cocktail in between meals there is a choice of 6 excellent bars where you can relax with a drink in hand.
Haruge, Malaafaiy and Farivalhu are the resort’s buffet eateries. Their breakfasts are lavish and encompass a wide range of delectable items, from pancakes and waffles to cereals, breads and pastries – accompanied by a selection of juices and fresh fruit. Lunch is lighter but just as tasty, and the dinners are resplendent themed buffet spreads guaranteed to appeal to everyone’s taste.
For further culinary delights from around the world head to one of the a la carte restaurants, such as Siam Garden. Nestled among lush tropical foliage, this authentic Thai restaurant is open for dinner and boasts an exotic menu of dishes hailing from the four main regions of Thailand. The eatery also offers a tantalizing ‘Discover Thai Food’ buffet once a week.
To enjoy a romantic meal of the freshest seafood, enjoyed in a stunning beachfront setting, head to The Reef, which allows you to watch your dinner being skilfully prepared before your eyes while the starlight dances on the waves of the Indian Ocean. But if you have a penchant for Indian cuisine grab a table at Tandoor Mahal, an elegant restaurant which serves delicious Tandoori dishes and traditional breads, vegetarian options and Indian desserts guaranteed to make your mouth water.
For a more personalized dining experience select one of the three Private Experiences available, such as the Serenade Dinner in a pavilion on the jetty, or a succulent 5-course Lobster Dinner on the sand. During the day or after dinner head to one of the island’s six bars for a range of beverages, and, in some cases, live entertainment in the evenings. Fung Bar is located right on the beach and offers an excellent selection of cocktails and a thoroughly enjoyable open-air disco, while the Laguna Bar is an ideal place for a relaxed drink in an intimate setting. Meanwhile the sophisticated Havana Club Wine and Cigar Bar boasts a menu of fine wines and international cigars and also offers Karaoke.
