Message from the General Manager – July 2021
Greetings from sunny Kuredu! It’s been truly wonderful to see more and more of you heading back to our resort for your long-awaited holidays – some of you have had them rescheduled quite a few times due to the pandemic but once here, the stresses have melted away under the Maldivian sun. As the global vaccine roll-out continues to provide protection, confidence to travel grows and with worldwide travel opening up to more and more people, we sincerely hope those of you still waiting can visit us again soon – we promise to make it worth the wait!
Manta season in Lhaviyani Atoll is due to begin in just a couple of months and as a prequel we have had a few sightings recently – along with whale sharks having been spotted in the atoll too. It’s always exciting to listen to the tales of what our divers and snorkelers have seen and this month the sharks have been stars of the show with Shark Week marked with an array of activities hosted by the dive center team at Prodivers. Make sure you check our Facebook and Instagram pages for news of what has been spotted. Those of you who sadly couldn’t be here to share in the activities should not despair though – every week is a shark week at Kuredu and even those of you who like to keep their hair dry at all times can enjoy strolling around the island watching the baby sharks honing their hunting skills in the shallows.
Wildlife is plentiful here at Kuredu and sharks and mantas are not the only sightings to tick off your bucket lists. Our island is a world-renowned haven for turtles with sightings being common even in the lagoon – drop in on Emily at the Marine Center and learn all about these fascinating creatures on your next visit. If dolphins, are on your must-see list we have a variety of adventures you can join in order to see them playing in the water and these can be pre-booked on the Kuredu App even before you arrive!
We are busy planning a festive season to remember and one that will end 2021 on a positive note to be remembered for all the right reasons so if you’d love a trip to Kuredu – book soon to avoid disappointment (and to avoid missing a great special offer!), our travel safe policy offers the security you need. In the meantime, I hope that more and more of you will have the freedom to visit us again soon, and when you do, my team and I will be here waiting to make it incredible.
With very best wishes,
