“Best way to enjoy Maldives”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We spent one week in kuri inn for a dive and yoga holiday along with my friends. I must admit that the hospitality show by the host Kamila and Arif was more than just business. They were very friendly and ready to meet all needs 24/7. they know what they are doing. They made sure our dive experience r to the best., specially the dive site selection was top class. The trip to deserted island was really a trip to paradice. Food selection and presentation was excellent. Specially the BBQ night was out of the world experience. on the whole its all worth it. I would suggest you to keep Kamila and Arif informed about all ur needs and for sure they will try there best to meet it. I will go back again :-)

Room Tip: They have 4 rooms and all are comfy

We have spent one week of our two week trip to Maldives in Kuri Inn and I have to say it was the best part of the whole holiday. Kuri is a smal 4 bedroom guest house on the smal local island in Maldives. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
Our room was huge with huge bathroom, power shower and jacuzzi.
Tea and coffe is free and available all the time in the dining area just next to wonderful chill out area with sun lounges, hammocks, leather sofas etc.
Wifi internet acces is also free.
The stuff at Kuri made sure that every day was full of exciting excursions (swimming with whale sharks, manta rays, turtles, snorkelling, diving)... to name just a few.
We had amazing overnight stay on a deserted island which we will remember forever.
Thanks to Kamila and Arif and rest of the staff we had an unforgettable time in the Maldives

I always think luxury comes with certain price tag but kuri inn certainly proves me wrong! I would like to write a review based on the experiences both my wife n myself had during our 1 week stay at kuri inn during the 1st week of december 2012
A) transfer- an approx 4 hrs travel by ferry may seemed long but we had wonderful experience talking to local people on board n we end up being offered a few drinks by them a good start for my honeymoon i guess, tips try to get a shady area at the rooftop coz it is windy and you will enjoy scenic view from there - 4/5
B) upon arrival at Mahibadhoo the hotel owner already waiting there to pick us up to the island n soon welcomed with cool towel n coconut drink -5/5
C) meals- nice n always daily yellowfin tuna with sashimi or curry or steak 5/5 for that
D) snorkling- amazing, reefs are nearby and comparable if not exceeding the nearby resorts! We seemed cant get enough n do it daily ! A 5/5 here
E) diving- as it is the beginning of the season i had all 3 dives with the divemaster Mr Arif alone with no other guests no additional charge for such private diving, furthermore his knowledge about the reefs is amazing as during the 1st dive i just need to concentrate on breathing and let the current bring us gently through the dive site as i certainly need this coz just had 2 boat snorkling with my wife the same day morning and guess what i still had the energy for night snorkling about 2 hours later
F) desert island with bbq dinner amazing and romantic n the desert island is fairly clean to my surprise
What i miss??? I guess i could stay for a week more n bravo to the kuri team for making our trip special!!!

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
