    Kuredu Things to Do

    There is a spa on Kuredu and it looks fab. The treatment rooms overlook the sea and have a real luxury feel about them. So if you feel like a bit of pampering, then go fo it.A word of warning: prices are on the steep side. Probably slightly more expensive than in your average London salon.Example in Nov 09: full Swedish body massage was $96.
