I am torn between 4 and 5 stars but in the end settled for 4 star - more for minor things than anything else. I used tripadvisor a lot before choosing Kuramathi so I will add my thoughts. Rooms - we left booking late and pretty much took what was available - my wife and I had booked a deluxe... More

My husband and myself stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary after we stayed for 8 days in Sri Lanka and from the moment we arrived by speedboat it was amazing. The boat took about 1 hour 20 to reach the island from the main land but when you step off the boat and are welcomed with a refreshing glass... More

I think for the first time in my life, experience of the place was better than in brochure. I'm sure you had these: travel agent shows you absolutely stunning photos of the hotel in your chosen location and promises paradise on Earth. And then hard landing at the actual location. Well - with Kuramathi Island Resort can't go wrong. Everything... More

Kuramathi is without doubt beautiful. The beaches are white sand with turquoise waters. Sunrise was tranquil and worth getting up for. On our first morning I stood on the beach alone at 6am - bliss. The snorkelling is amazing, but at times quite hard to access the snorkel lanes. We saw the black tipped shark - wow! The kids club... More

Stayed at Kuramathi for 8 days in July. We were told that it should be rainy season but did not experience any rain. The weather was fantastic during the whole stay.
