“Words too cant describe this resort....its that perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

We planned our Maldives trip to celebrate our second marriage anniversary in October after checking the review of all the resorts in Maldives....Obviously Kurumba had close to none negative reviews and after visiting this place I know exactl why. We stayed here for 4 nights and our stay was just perfect...I still cant get over it and cant believe I am back to the "real world"....From the moment we landed in Male, due attention was given to the minutest of the details...the check-in was smooth and swift and we had booked Standard room which was also great with sea facing view...The staff knew it was our second marriage anniversary and we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite and it was just awesome! I am a vegetarian and my husband is allergic to sea food but this resort had enough and many options for us to dine around...We were on Bed and breakfast scheme and we could choose froma whole lot of restaurants available in the island and the best part was - every restaurant had good options for vegetarians...We did Sunset and Dolhin cruise which is totally recommended and we also planned Sound of the sea dinner on our anniversary which was again nothing less than perfect...all in all, a vacation I would never forget...I have already recommended this place to all my family and friends and I am sure they will also have a great time...I too will definitely plan another trip t this place...I would like to also mention that each and every member of their staff is just so warm and friendly...they will go the extra mile to make sure you have a great time...A special mention here goes to Vinay (his ever smiling face and a "yes" attitude is something both of us can never forget), Russell(our butler for the Sounds of the Sea dinner, again a very smiling and pleasant person) and Anusha (for the third time, a very smiling face and very warm)...I would like to thank all these people for making everything so special and so memorable...I cant wait to be back :)

We visited Kurumba from 5th oct to 8th october 2011 and the whole experience has been one of the best ones we have ever had. Right from our pick up at the airport to the stay everything was perfectly planned. We were travelling with our infant and were very concerned but the hotel staff ensured that we were comfortable.

The hotel staff is very courteous and ensured that all guests are treated with a homely warmth. The resort has activities all thru the day so that you don't feel bored. free snorkeling lessons and equipment are provided by the resort.

The overall experience has been enthralling. A must visit if planning a trip to Maldives.

We had a fantastic stay at Kurumba in the Maldives. The attention to detail made us feel special individually and not just another guest in another hotel room. It is the little things that mean so much. From the person who made up our bugalow who noticed that we had drank all the coffee and made sure there was extra available; to the way the champagne was poured (which was perfect).
A truly memorable stay!

Stayed here for 7 nights back in April. What a beautiful resort! It was our first time to the Maldives and woiuld not hesitate to go back to Kurumba!
The staff cannot do enough for you, the food is gorgeous - lots of choices and different restaurants, and the snorkelling is fantastic! Make sure you check out the cocktail of the day, drinks are reasonably priced (for the maldives!) at $5 as opposed to anything between $6 - $12 for other drinks.
Plenty to do on the island if your feeling energetic, but if you want to relax and chill then you can do so with minimal interuption as very quiet. (you get the odd plane flying overhead but that didnt bother us).
We stayed in a pool villa which was absolutely amazing. Private pool to the back and decking area and beach to the front. Inside is very spacious, full of luxury!
If you're visiting the Maldives, stay at Kurumba!

We spend 12 days at Kurumba Maldives and enjoyed every second. We har a spacious deluxe bungalow with maldivian indoor/outdoor bath in front of a beautiful private beach with dedicated sun chairs. All staff went out of their way to let us enjoy our vacation (Special thanks to Ralyan, Nizvy, Suresh, Rafig, and Ali). We mostly ate at the Ocean Grill where the food was really good and we could look at the ocean and baby sharks swimming by. We were there in September where the weather was not always at it's best. Instead, there were very few guest there, so the resort felt very private. Due to the proximity to the airport there was some airplane noise.

Room Tip: Room 139-144 for a private beach experience.

We returned from Karumba 2 weeks back (stayed for a week in September) and had the most amazing time. The accommodation was luxurious, clean and very well maintained and close to the beach (just as requested). The staff on the Island are extremely friendly, helpful and courteous.

The best thing about Kurumba is that even at full occupancy, it never feels like it. There is a good choice of restaurants and room Service is excellent; One night it was raining heavily and inspite of the same we received our fish and chips in time, crisp and well presented. During our stay we were often treated with pleasant surprises like a cocktail sent to our room, wedding anniversary cake at the restaurant, floral decoration in the room etc

Every evening there is entertainment and a number of excursions that you can choose from; my personal recommendation would be the sunset cruise.

All in all, I found this Island to be good value for money. Special thanks to Jason and his team for making our trip a memorable one ! Few names I would like to highlight are Vinay - for guiding and spending time with us, Fernando for excellent service during Breakfast & Dinner at the Indian restaurant and Shreejit for ensuring our room was clean and tidy everyday.
