Kurumba Maldives unveils new Thai restaurant
Kurumba Maldives has opened a new speciality Thai restaurant, Khing Thai.
At a special ceremony held Monday evening, Kurumba’s General Manager Ryszard Majewski opened the restaurant. He was joined by the resort’s staff as well as some of the visiting guests.
According to Kurumba, Khing Thai, which means Thai Ginger, is the former East Restaurant located next to its Arabic and Indian restaurants. The interior paintings are all hand painted by staff members, it said.
Kurumba Maldives, the first resort in the Maldives, has emerged as a grand resort of distinctive style and panache after a complete reconstruction. Located a 10-minute speedboat ride away from the main Velana International Airport, Kurumba’s lovingly nurtured tropical gardens include an orchid nursery. Shaded paths lead from one side of this 30-acre circular island to the other, while intimate white beaches are protected by eco-breakwaters of weathered coral.
With 180 bungalows and villas dotted throughout the island within verdant foliage only a pace or two from the beach, Kurumba offers a wide range of luxurious accommodation. The villas and rooms have wooden floors and are elegantly furnished with solid timbre furniture.
In addition to the newly opened King Thai restaurant, the resort boasts seven restaurants and three bars featuring an impressive variety of cuisines, including Italian, Japanese, Indian and Lebanese choices.
Offering a wide range of treatments, Veli Spa proposes the traditional Dhivehi Beys treatments, as well as both modern and traditional treatments. This complements the resort’s recreational offerings such as its two outdoor freshwater pools, three tennis courts and the fitness centre.
