DINING

Start your day with freshly squeezed juice and dig your heels in the sand, dining at Kuda Huraa knows how to hit the mark. Five restaurants and laid-back lounges ensure mealtimes are always memorable. Casual Café Huraa is the place to stock up on flaky pastries, pancakes, eggs a million ways and rainbow breakfast treats.

Adults looking for a touch of Italian pizzazz near the grownups pool can bag a beach table at the Reef Club and split classic dishes, wood-fired pizzas and chilled cellar wines. Baraabaru seems to float on the mirror-like waters, with architecture paying homage to the bliss of Kerala. Indian spice ignites dishes that make the most of the marine-rich waters right on your doorstep.

The Sunset Lounge and Poolside Bar also ensures that the drinks keep on flowing from dawn until dusk. For those couples seeking a smattering of perfect privacy, the dining experience team can set you up in a white linen paradise in your own gazebo, served by your own chef.

POOLSIDE

With three stunning swimming pools and the ocean never out of sight, water babies will be in their element at Kuda Huraa. The infinity edged pool boasts one of the most generous sizes in the whole of the Maldives. Dotted with sunshine yellow chaise lounges and attentive staff waiting to mist you down, hand you a plump towel and bring another beer to your bedside – you need not lift a finger.

Adults seeking a spot of quiet time will be smitten by the Serenity Pool where moonlit swims are encouraged. For Little Wayfarers, the kid’s pool provides endless hours of splashing and shrieking in delight.

SPA & WELLNESS

You know you have found paradise when the spa has its very own island. The ritual begins with a short boat ride across the teal lagoon where an army of healers are waiting to wrap you in wild-harvested seaweed, scrub you with salt, and help you reconnect with your ‘true’ self.

While the Four Seasons spa offers a fine-tuned menu of massages and bath rituals, the Kuda Huraa takes wellness and healing even further. Island spa rituals make full use of the herbal gardens adorning the island, and an exquisite program calls on yoga, meditation, reiki and reflexology. The grand dame of spa experiences has to be ‘The Secrets of the Sea’ ritual. Set against a scene of a thousand stars, you sail by moonlight to the island for carefully curated treatments tuned to the flow of the waves.

For those who prefer a little more adrenaline woven into their wellness programs, you will find a state of the art fitness facility, tennis courts, and even a jogging track for those lyrical dawn runs.

ADULT TIME

Lending adults that sense of freedom is an art form, and one that Kuda Huraa manages to capture like a pro. Little Wayfarers will adore the Kuda Mas (small fish) club with its imaginative days filled with coral painting, fish feeding, and creative crafts for kids between the age of 4-12. The concierge is also on hand to arrange one on one babysitters for those eves when the starlit sands are calling your name.

ACCOMMODATION

96 beautiful thatched homes scatter the floral clad shores of this Indian Ocean retreat – each a stylish haven for lazy days. Inspired by traditional Maldivian style, the beach and overwater villas have been hand constructed by local craftsman, using local rattan and peak, yards of white muslin and zesty ocean fresh colours to reflect the world outside your window.

BUNGALOWS

Standing on stilts above the lagoon or a footfall away from the cream coloured sand, you can take your pick of pretty bungalows on Kuda Huraa. Stuccoed walls, thatched roofs, a touch of teak and brilliant foliage make waking up each day a pleasure. The open-air lounge invites you to sip iced G&T’s to the soundtrack of the waves. Pick between sunset or sunrise views, family spaces or intimate havens for two.

SPECIALTY SUITES

Once in a lifetime speciality suites will make you weak at the knees. Pick from palatial top of the ocean homes or royal beach villas boasting unrivalled locales on the shoreline. Whichever you choose; expect heartbreaking sunset and sunrise views with two different decks at your disposal, expanded living spaces with overwater nets, and steps that descend directly into the water at the lagoon suites for tumble out of bed snorkelling sessions
