Dining

For dining, you’ll be allocated a buffet restaurant determined by the location of your villa. We recommend upgrading to Select All Inclusive for the full choice of à la carte restaurants – including the popular Island Barbecue on the beach, Siam Garden serving up authentic Thai dishes, and fine dining at Duniye in the verdant heart of the island. Of the bars, favourites include the Sand Bar, where you can sink into a comfy beanbag with a cocktail and bury your toes in the sand, and the chic Champagne Loft. It's worth noting that children need to be over 6 to dine at Kobe, Duniye, Island Barbecue, The Reef and Inguru.

Environmentally friendly practices:

In order to minimise the use of plastic a bottling plant was installed to start producing their own potable water for guests and team members. Following a stringent three-stage water purification process, ensuring the highest quality and standard, the final product is a Still and Sparkling water in Kuramathi glass water bottles available in two sizes. Reusing Kuramathi glass bottles has reduced their carbon footprint and reduced the usage of about 300,000 plastic bottles that are discarded every year. In addition, Kuramathi now serves paper straws in all bars as part of its sustainability program. Plastic waste is collected and sent to Parley for recycling, an organization committed to reducing and recycling plastic waste. 

Their Hydroponic Garden, built on already cleared land on the island is where they grow, and harvest, more than 500 kilograms of salad greens and herbs every month for team and guests buffets. Maintained by a resident horticulturist and team, the garden produces salad greens and herbs  incuding red lettuce, green lettuce, green basil, purple basil, Thai basil, mint, coriander, dill, small basil, watercress, edible flowers, cherry tomato, chili, rocket leaves, pak choi, mizuna, tomato, curry leaves, banana, cabbage leaves and bilimbi.

Measures have also been put in place to ensure recycling of grey water. The water is treated and purified and reused in the gardens and for flush tanks.

They also use their organic waste materials by converting into a nutrient rich compost promoting plant growth. 

Community engagement: 

Kuramathi gives many employment opportunities to the islanders of Rasdhoo. Additionally, several initiatives have been taken in the past to assist with the community in different projects, financially supporting the organisation responsible for island development. 

Kuramathi buys a large portion of fruits and vegetables from another neighbouring island Thoddoo, just outside the atoll, located 1 hour from Kuramathi.

They also hold regular visual presentations for school children at the Eco Centre on varied subjects from marine topics to ways of protecting their fragile ecosystem.

Coral reef protection:

Clear snorkel channels are indicated on their island map. The channels themselves are marked by signs, entrances, flags and buoys. Information about the snorkelling experience and the correct do’s and don’ts are provided to each guest in their native language and is made available at their Eco Centre, Marine Shop and the guest lounges which is also where guests can pick up masks, snorkels and fins. Additionally regular reef patrol and regular reef clean up sessions are arranged.

Kuramathi fully supports ‘catch and release’ policies in Big Game Fishing. They are also one of very few resorts which do not offer Night Fishing as an excursion. They take pride in their decision and their part to protect the pristine surroundings.
