We stayed at Kurumba for 4 nightsin sept. it is a a beautiful resort very close to male city. however we hadnt taken the full or half board on the stay and hence ended up paying thru our noses for every single thing. We stayed at the garden view villa and had a good room with a fantastic outdoor bathroom,... More

A good old hotel. It needs to be repaired. Two Russians (guide and diver) are terrible rude. Very beautiful place, however there is an air port at 1.6 kilometres' distance.

This was our first visit to the Maldives and we were not disappointed. Kurumba was an excellent choice with lush vegetation and clear blue water that really set the stage for a truly tropical paradise. Our 4 day visit in a Deluxe Bungalow was everything we had hoped for, the room was spacious and we loved the outdoor shower. The... More

We've recently come back from a 7 night bed and breakfast stay at Kurumba and are already missing it so much!! Booked through Kuoni (with some Quidco cashback!) with flights from Monarch. This is our second time to Kurumba in 3 years and quite frankly, any other holiday we have been on just does not compare. We love it there!!... More

I arranged our trip at the Kurumba based on all the great reviews of past guests on Tripadvisor. Our trip was special as it was my spouses 40th Birthday and our Anniversary at the same time. I had contacted the Kurumba beforehand to make sure we got a great room (deluxe bungalow on beach facing away from Male and facing... More

I visited Kurumba last week after traveling through Singapore and Sri Lanka. There were only about 60 other guests in the resort as they had been closed for a few days the previous week. The resort itself is a little older than some in the region but the staff are friendly and the place is well situated close to Male... More

We enjoyed the first part our stay and the food and staff were excellent. However, during our stay the staff went on strike and there were violent protests which resulted in the senior management effectively being chased off the island by the staff . This was witnessed by most of the customers and was quite frightening particularly as there were... More

Location Pro: Because it is the closest resort island to Male, the transfer time on arrival is minimal. From touchdown through baggage reclaim, immigration and speedboat transfer to setting foot on the island was less than an hour. Con: Because of its position, Kurumba is effectively at the end of the airport runway. Expect the sound of airline traffic, as... More
