Review — Kurumba Maldives living up to its name with the extensive use of coconut

Review — The vast majority of the world population may have just discovered the numerous health benefits of coconut, but for people living in the tropics this is old news. The coconut palm has sustained communities in the tropics, including Maldives, for centuries. There is a reason why the national emblem of Maldives features this versatile palm. It is the national tree and has played a vital role in the livelihood of Maldivians. They depended on the coconut palm for everything from transportation and housing to food and medical purposes. It may not be used as extensively today, but coconut is still a popular fruit and the base of most Maldivian cuisines.

Review — Anantara Kihavah Villas combines desert island with contemporary chic

Review — Aun, our villa host, has prepared a footbath strewn with flower petals on the ocean-facing porch of our beach villa. Our feet are hardly tired – we have arrived in all comfort by speedboat from Soneva Fushi, also in the UNESCO listed biosphere of Baa atoll, 30 minutes from the International Airport – but a footbath is a nice way to take in the new environment of this resort. It couldn’t be anymore different from Soneva Fushi and its barefoot luxury, Robinson Crusoe feel.
