Wow! A stunning place! We arrived at our island by speed boat transfer from the airport jetty. They even let Mark drive the speedboat most of the way (slightly scary). A fabulous place and even better we was met by my cousin and her hubby waiting for us at the bar with lots of bubbly. It's lovely to spend time with family and we spent most of the first afternoon and evening ...

No, those AREN'T large black birds...

... being naked on this very devoutly Muslim island. Oops.

My plan for the evening is looking into options for our second hotel here. This one is fine, but we are tempted by one of the all-inclusive resorts- here, we have to pay so much for each meal, each trip to the beach, each snorkel mask rental, that it seems like it might be just as cheap to stay somewhere nicer that has all that included... we shall see. Good night all!!!

The Maldives and Cochin,India

A travel blog entry by gail.koff


... although there are only six Jews left in Cochin.

The second Temple we visited was dating back to the 1400's and was the temple for the "white Jews" from Portugal and Spain escaping the inquisition. The two groups did not get along as they were all merchants, competing for the same business. Seeing this history really makes we want to read more history books, something I have never been keen on. In the 1970's, the last of the Cochin Jews made Aliyah ...

Maldives Part I

... bemused workforce strewing petals. The meal is $300 plus tax but Helen cannot
be tempted. We head back and get the scuba gear out again. This time I am more
successful, having realised you don’t have to keep one hand on your breathing
pole at all times. The tide is further out but there’s still much to see. Most
of the coral here is dead, not sure if that’s normal or not. Maybe the inner
reefs die and then it carries on further out across the ...

Moya Thalaboa!

... Cokes Camp sits on the beach perfectly positioned with a front row view of Cokes surf break and Chickens surf break across the channel.

I spent the majority of my time on Thulus, the daily routine went something like this: eat brecky, wait for the tide, hop on a boat to a different surf break, ride waves, boat back to Thulus, rest, ride waves at Cokes, eat, sleep, repeat. The great thing about surf lodges ...

    Never come back!


    We stayed at Embudu for just one night in March 2007 and decided that we would never come back again!

    Spitzenmäßig !!!


    Hallo an alle die sich für Embudu interessieren.



    I can only agree with all the wonderful things that others have said before me and disagree with anybody who has found fault.

    Wonderfull embudu


    we have just returned from embudu and had a fantastic time staff were friendly and helpfull nothing was to much trouble snorkling was out of this world and the christmas festilities was fantastic a very small island but you get to know evry one so it feels like a big family party the sea was a bit rough at times so that made the water bungalow a bit noisey at times but that would not stop me going again

    Un vero paradiso!


    Le parole non bastano per descrivere la meravigliosa vacanza trascorsa al villaggio Embudu, il personale era talmente cordiale e disponibile, la sistemazione era ideale, il cibo delizioso e il menù sempre vario...che budini gustosi!! L'isola in sé è semplicemente meravigliosa, è così tranquilla durante il giorno! Chissà dove se ne vanno tutti quanti! Lo snorkeling è stata un'esperienza fantastica: io non sono pratica di immersioni, ma in realtà non c'è stato alcun bisogno di immergersi. Le ragazze del centro benessere hanno le mani fatate. È veramente un posto splendido, impareggiabile per il relax e la tranquillità che offre!

    Paradis absolu !


    Aucun mot ne peut décrire les fantastiques vacances que nous avons passées à Embudu : le personnel était très serviable et gentil, le logement idéal, la nourriture délicieuse, avec beaucoup de choix tout les soirs... et de très bons gâteaux !! L'île est tout simplement magnifique, et si calme durant la journée qu'on se demande où sont passés les gens !!! La plongée avec tuba est fantastique, je ne pratique pas la plongée sous marine mais cela n'était pas vraiment nécessaire. Les filles du spa ont des mains d'anges. C'est un endroit magnifique, pour une totale relaxation et de la tranquillité il n'y a rien de mieux !

    Great holiday -shame about the rain!


    The resort is a little tired now (open for 30? years), but is very welcoming and the snorkelling/diving is great. This year the weather has been awful, in that it has rained most days in the last few months - really hosed down! - but it is still warm and the water is too.

    Absolute Paradise!


    Words cannot describe what a fantastic holiday we had in Embudu, staff were so helpful and friendly, accommodation ideal, food delicious, with lots of choice every evening...yummy puddings!! The islands itself is just beautiful, and soo quiet during the day, no idea where everybody goes!! The snorkelling is fantastic, I dont dive and there was no need to really. The girls in the spa have the hands of angels.

    It trully is a magnificent place, for complete relaxation and tranquility, you can't beat it!

    Wonderful holiday to recharge your batteries!


    Embudu Village is a 3 star resort, in other words it doesn't have the frills expected at 4-5 star resorts, but it is excellent value. The rooms are large and comfortable, no TV but if you must watch TV then there is one in the lounge. The rooms have a fan, airconditioner, fridge, chairs, desk, wardrobe etc. There are waterbungaloes which do have TV, glass viewing panel in the floor etc.

    Great low budget Maldives holiday


    Just returned from a great 2 week break. The rooms could do with some refurbishment, but they are clean and comfortable. The food is very good buffet style, although breakfast is pretty much the same every day. The hotel staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. The beaches etc are well kept but the plants could do with some heavy pruning in places. Drinks prices are on a par with UK levels, and 2 jugs of fresh water are supplied every day in the rooms for free. The coral house-reef is only just starting to re-grow after the 1998 El-Ninio, but there are plenty of fish to see. The island is quite busy but always had a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Overall a very good value for money, low budget resort.
