We stayed at Kuri Inn june 21st til 26th. At that time, we were at the end of a 6 months trip throughout southeast asia. What a great way to end our journey!! For most of our stay, we were the only guest on the quiet island. We had the amazing beach for ourselves. The owners are so welcoming and... More

Forget the resorts and go to Omadhoo to Ishmael and his crew at Kuri Inn. (5$ by ferry from Male) We spent 6 days there and we felt very welcomed-we even were the only tourists on the island for some time :) Fullboard (very good food with fish most of the time) and a everyday trip (snorkeling, fishing, desert island...

In 3 months travelling in Asia (Maldives, Sri Lanka, Jordan, Israel) I stayed at so many places and Kuri Inn on Omadhoo was the best. The place was perfect, because it was like a combination between travelling and a very relaxing holiday. Travelling; you stay in a village on the island and you discover the way they live. Holiday, because... More

Staff extremely caring, really putting they heart and so much much effort to... More

My friends and I spent one week in Kuri Inn in April. We organised the whole trip on our own and were hoping that we will not be disappointed. And we were not!

We just came back from our 5-day-stay at Kuri Inn and we cannot stop raving about it! Right from the start we felt like being in paradise. The beauty of Omadhoo, the surrounding desert islands and the under water world is overwhelming. Adhunaan and Ishmael met us at the fairy and welcomed us with a coconut drink. The guest house...

Kuri Inn is a great place to stay. If you want to stay in a local island on the maldives. You can go diving and do island hopping and other activities. The food was fantastic, amazing tuna!!! We had a private staff when we were there, that was pretty awesome. Ishmael and Adanan always drop bye to see if we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kuri Inn guest house is situated in the picturesque fishing village of Omadhoo in the heart of Ari Atoll, a clean and friendly local island. In contrast to the major resorts, on Omadhoo you have the opportunity to experience the real Maldives island life and traditions. The island is about 3 sq. kilometers with under 1000 residents. Maldivians are reluctant to leave the territory of its atolls, so islands like Omadhoo have fully preserved the ancient way of life and traditions of its nation, carefully passed down from generation to generation. The house reef surrounding the island is pure and innocent with great live corals and amazing marine life, perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. The island's southwest beach side ends with an extraordinary, beautiful sand narrow. Almost 60 % of the island is covered with tropical vegetation such as breadfruit and mango trees and coconut palms. The western part of the island could be called a real 'jungle' due to a rich abundance of large, banyan trees and tropical palms. Facilities: The guest house "Kuri" has a laid-back feeling with a cozy, secluded patio, hammock and lounge chairs for sunbathing - and the beach just a minute's walk away. The guest house kitchen offers local and European cuisine in the outdoor dining area. Activities: There are three uninhabited peaceful islands, and several sandbanks near Omadhoo as well as some really great reefs. You can spend many unforgettable hours of relaxation, swimming, snorkeling or even enjoying a bbq of just-caught, fresh fish - all your Maldives dreams can come true at Kuri's island getaway.• snorkeling• "meet the dolphins" trip• snorkeling with whale sharks and mantas • night snorkeling • Scuba diving for beginners and experienced divers • full/half day trips to a desert island• trip to a neighboring village• barbecue dinner on a desert island• fishing of various types. ... more   less
