sun,sand & snorkelling!
Excusions off the island are somewhat limited
In a nutshell
The most relaxed ever
There are two ways to get around the Island of Kuredu.
1. In your bare feet
2. In your flip-flops
Might I suggest the former, but carry the latter with you for the sharp corally bits on the north shore.

The only supply shop in Kuredu which is also the internet shop, I found to be quite expensive for just about everything. A little disappointing as there was the usual display of souveniers that we would have liked to bring home.
Items of decorative jewellery are not marked to indicate whether thay are turtle shell or such like so you have no idea whatyour buying other than the prices are high.
Internet is relatively cheap although you are warned that the time is for while you are at the computer and not whilst accessing the internet and several times the connection was very slow.

Just a thought - at certain times of year there can be a problem with airborne insects such as mosquitoes etc.
We visited Kuredu in October and there was nothing airborne, but there were hundreds of sand-ants.
You cant feel them until it's too late - so get that repellent on! The shop on the island does a bottle of repellent and sun-screen in one. Well worth buying some!

Favorite thing: My favorite thing about Kuredu is the feeling I got when I looked out into the ocean. Everyday it was just as beautiful an exciting, it is the most amazing place I have ever been.
As if it isn't already perfect enough, we got the Him n' Her massage......pure bliss. For $130 for the both of us we used the jacuzzi for 30 minutes, we were massaged together in a candlelit room for about an hour, after the massage we went back to our room to relax and we were sent a bottle of champagne (which we drank on the beach). Well worth the money.
Fondest memory: Weather:
Even though we went in the rainy season, the weather was gorgeous. My husband and I both had enough sun to turn ridiculously brown. When it did rain it was short bursts and then the sun was back out and luckily it mostly rained in the middle of the night.
One of my favorite nights was walking back to our bungalow in the pouring rain from the babuna bar. I suppose it is what you make of it.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Kuredu. I think they have set up the resort perfectly, with just enough choice to make each day a little different but not too much going on that it seems commercialised. I loved the island way of life and didn't miss the computer or watching tv one bit.
My husband and I miss Kuredu dearly, it truly is paradise and an experience I ( we ) will never forget.
