This is a very good resort with excellent staff with good service standards. I have held back from giving it 5 starts for a couple of reasons which partly relate to the size of the island meaning it has little character of its own other than that of an international resort. After the seaplane flight and a brief intro from... More

Kuramathi was the best holiday I've ever had. The island was amazing. The staff were so lovely and helpful. The dive centre really well organised. Snorkelling was out of this world. We went in March and didn't see one mosquito. We can't wait to book to go back. I would highly recommend this island.

I'm writing this review as my 10 days trip is about to end here at Kuramathi and I do not want to leave. My husband and myself have just been having a giggle at some of the terrible reviews and we literally could only laugh. One even complained there wasn't enough water in the sea,the laugh we are having!! So... More

We have just got back from a one week stay in Kuramathi, what a beautiful place. We had a superior beach villa which was amazing, right on your own little piece of beach. The way the Kuramathi is run is really something, everyone seems to take great pride and strive for perfection. All staff whether they are tending to the... More

This is our 2nd trip in the Maldives and our experience at the Kuramathi was well over our expectations. This is simply a superb establishment, extra clean and looked after with extra care. Because this is quite a Long Island - for the Maldives - the house reef is really good. We saw there many sharks, turtles, Rays, lion fish... More

I can only echo the many positive things in other reviews. My Wife, 17 year old Daughter and I have just returned from a trip to Kuramathi Island Resort. We booked through Kuoni on a "Select All - Inclusive" basis. This gives access to all a la carte restaurants (pre-booking recommended) and free drinks, cocktails and ice-cream sundaes etc. Unlike...

Just returning from an excellent holiday in Maldives at Kuramathi Island Resort. It was a family trip with 2 little ones and I was a little skeptical about how the place would turn out to be. We reached Male in the morning and were greeted by the resort's staff at the arrivals. The sea plane transfer was a breeze and... More

I am a little late in reviewing this as I went to this island as a part of my honeymoon in September 2014. I have broken the trip down into the following: Getting to the island: Having flown into Male airport, myself and my wife used a speedboat transfer to get to the island, and a seaplane to depart it....

The resort is beautiful, the reef was amazing and we got to do a lot of snorkeling (even saw reef sharks) :D it was beautiful!! the Food was good and rooms worth every penny! I would say if your going there snorkel as much as possible and stay at least 2 nights.

There have been a few negative reviews on this island due to the planned work from May to December. My wife and I are visiting in May and of course this work will impact on us as well. But to blame or give Kuramathi a bad review is wrong, it's a 365 day resort they have to do the work... More
