Kuredu as 8 time repeaters we didn’t think it would get any better - it is is for us the epitome of luxury and style a stay in paradise.

We usually stay in the ‘O’ beach villas and use the ‘O’ restaurant which has incredible views and a beautiful pool.

After 5 visits we get the benefits of being able use all facilities and so this trip we used the Sangu restaurant and pool as well and were hooked!

Breakfast daily on a table set on the beach overlooking pristine turquoise sea - pancakes or eggs made to order even a honeycomb - they even had Bircher muesli ! - it’s the little things ! Oh and the little bananas grown on the island so sweet and fresh passion fruits were amongst my favourites.

The restaurant is incredible - imagine a large Parmesan wheel set alight to melt the cheese into Rissotto rice while you watch !

They have a chef using a traditional clay oven to prep Nam bread and Chicken and fish tikka - using local herbs - everything beautifully presented and so delicious.

An all inclusive restaurant where Maldivian Stripe Lobster was on the menu one evening ! blown away.

So when I talked about style - it is things like this -the views - pool side service - whilst swimming in the infinity pool. Lounge on the most sublimely comfortable beds and being brought cool cloths and shots or cocktails on a tray !

Since we last visited the Island 6 years ago cocktails have been added to the all inclusive i think that’s pretty rare - I was also able to drink premium spirits - checking out a range of great gins. The house red was a gorgeous merlot which we had ever night.

Another change is the gym it has been moved into an amazing building -purposes built with a location overlooking the sea - we didn’t make it for a work out but I did spent an hour in the new beautifully designed yoga hut which is also a gorgeous new addition and has complimentary classes.

Although we don’t have young kids we saw there is now a children’s play area beautifully designed and flowing as do all the buildings. In the restaurant nearby there is a station area for the children again so beautifully designed with a mural and at their height to serve themselves - everything just works it was so cute.

We ate in the Beach restaurant the last night - we have before but it’s even better - the food was Michelin star quality - the chef came to greet us after we had eaten which is a nice touch. We had an amazing experience dining under the stars hearing the water lapping and our feet in the warm sand.

We dived with Pro Divers having a tune up with Remi as it had been a while - he was lovely and very patient helping me regain my confidence - as always the most professional and safety conscious team -super friendly and welcoming - we did all our diving certifications here - as did our daughter when she was about 13 - we first came to Kuredu 2005 - in terms of equipment they even have their own decompression chamber on the island.

Were taken by the kind and helpful boat staff to sites were we dived into the blue - seeing ledges of turtles in the caves and in the blue 2 feet away saw 3 grey tip reef sharks swimming past.
Hot tea and banana cake always a treat on the way back - but on one occasion an even bigger treat around 30 dolphins a few feet away in the water the boat staff intuitively know how to communicate to get them to come to the boat .

And if it couldn’t get any better there is also the spa - We spent several hours at the diniye over the water spa sublime scrubs and massages -floating back to our beach villa to watch the sun go down.

Every time we go we wonder whether it will have changed and we won’t want to return but for us it’s just getting better, the prices have increased but so has the style and luxury - and we don’t have the kids to pay for now ! having got back on Monday we can’t wait to return.

There are repeater guests who have been here 35-50 times that doesn’t surprise us and you might think why would you do that - probably because nowhere else compares - it’s a beautiful island - and it’s supported by wonderful people so why would you go anywhere else.

Dreamy holidays with my husband at Kuredu. The marine life in the island is absolutely STUNNING. What a pleasure to wake up every morning and spend your day looking for Manta rays, sea turtles and baby sharks. The staff is always trying to help and accommodate customers. Special thanks to Hafooz in the Bonthi restaurant and Tujja who made our stay particularly enjoyable.

- Restaurants: We were allocated to the Bonthi restaurant and the food was great with different theme nights. Our waiter Hafooz was very kind and made sure to remember our preferences in terms of drinks and tables. He also decorated our table for our last night, that was much appreciated! All the buffet restaurants serve the same food, the only difference is the view&location. You should definitely watch the sunset at the tea house at the end of the jetty.
To make the experience even better, maybe offer vegan options (milk) especially for breakfast

- Rooms: We spent 8 nights in a Garden Bungalow and were actually very lucky because our room was beachfront and very close to the Sangu area. It has everything you need and a comfortable bed. The toilet outside is a real plus, I miss having my shower close to the nature. Plus, we had no issues with mosquitos.
The rooms could be a bit more luxurious with a little bit of refurbishment but as mentioned they are totally fine.

- Staff & welcome: They're trying their best to organise events and activities everyday. Big up to all the chefs, waiters, drivers... The only thing that can be improvement is communication at the reception. Greeting was a bit cold when we arrived, as we were asked to pay directly the total amount on day 1. We've been to different hotels and resorts all around the world and were never asked to pay the entire amount upon arrival. I understand that these things vary from a hotel to another, but the staff could show more flexibility especially when guests are coming from afar and won't escape from the island anyway. Other than that, everything was perfect.

All in all, great experience with dreamy landscapes (beach, sandbank, marine life), very good food and professional staff. Minor points could be improved as mentioned.

Initially booked for 5 nights but extended to 7, stayed in Water Villa 501 for 2 nights, then 550 Honeymoon Water for 2 nights, then Sangu Beach Villa with jacuzzi for 3 nights, all accommodation was clean with impeccable daily housekeeping. Some form of entertainment every night, buffet spread are awesome in taste & variety, beers well chilled. Pools clean and do not smell of chlorine, always have clean pool towels available. Plan to return in future but will make my booking different, 3 meals a day on Full Board is way too much, can do it with breakfast and either snack menu of Alacarte' for dinners, buy by the bottle rather than by shots.

After reading excellent reviews decided to stay here for our annual trip here after five nights stay at hurawalhi resort we came came to this resort.
Asians and especially Indians stay away from this resort it’s one of the worst resorts have been to,staff has no manners they will smile at Europeans and will look down upon you (as if you are staying with them for free)housekeeping will respond to your calls after one hour,taxis which take you other parts of island will have no courtesy to drop you to desired location even you ask them to stop they won’t.
Reception staff (some of them were good though) were really rude ,as if they don’t need guests but guests need them.
There are no basic amenities in room even for tooth brush u will have to call them and for every other thing they will keep on charging you $2 & $5
Disgusted with the staff and resort though I had paid for 4 nights I left after staying there for 2 nights
So in nutshell “though Maldives is in Asia I think because of higher number of western travellers resorts like Kuredu have started to look down upon Asians and if you have any self respect not to get treated badly to the level that you feel humiliated don’t choose this resort.

This place is absolute paradise!

We stayed for 9 nights at the start of February and wished we had booked two weeks, we booked 9 nights as we were worried the island may be a little steady, however it can be as steady or as happening as you want. We wish we stayed longer. The sea plane in is the most amazing experience.
We stayed in a beach bungalow (394) and in our opinion it was the best choice on the island, the loveliest beach. Well maintained, spotlessly clean and everything you need. The rooms have the comfiest beds, hair dryers, a safe, a clock with USB ports, more then enough space in the wardrobes , coffee machines and a mini bar . The mini bar was more then equipped with large bottles of red, white, rose. Fizzy drinks, fresh juices, milk, chocolate bars, crisps/ biscuits and sweets!
We ate at at the Bonthi restaurant and the food was beautiful, so many chefs to take care of your every need (pasta/omelette station was a favourite of ours).
Aisar our waiter in the restaurant absolutely made our holiday, he was the politest, most hard working and helpful person we’ve come across. He is a credit to this resort!
While we were the we did the beach BBQ, it was the best $50pp I’ve ever spent. Such an amazing variety of food from lobster and steak to Malibu pancakes in the most beautiful setting, it’s a must do!!
We also did the fish, grill and snorkel trip, it was amazing. There was 6 members of staff to help 7 of us on a beautiful boat. It was a good laugh and the fish we caught was cooked and ready to eat within an hour.
The snorkelling from the beach is incredible, you can see sharks, turtles, sting rays and amazing coloured fish daily.

I had the most amazing week on this beautiful paradise island. I received a great welcome once arrived at resort off sea plane to the sound of beating drums . I was given my own personal rep Prasaad very helpful friendly. My original booking was for a Garden bungalow full board. Upon reading reviews and being a solo travelller I decided i wanted to be more closer to amenities so i upgraded to a Premium beach villa all inclusive. That was the best decision i ever made. I was in room 204. which is right in the middle of the island and about a 2 minute walk to closest restaurant and bars.beach practically on door step. Also iincluded in all inclusive package was a sunset cruise, a complementary golf lesson and complementary water sports. and cocktails. I made use of all and was not disappointed I had so much fun . My room was beautiful 4 poster bed mini bar kettle coffee maker outside shower and bathroom. My room was cleaned everyday by Ashraf who done an amazing job. The Covid Hygiene standards in this hotel top class. Id and temperature taken electronically before entering restaurants and face masks to be worn whilst walking around. in enclosed spaces Hand sanitizer provided too. The beach is beautiful and cleaned every day and night. The food was out of this world fresh tasty. Another great thing about the all inclusive is that you do have your main restaurant mine was Bonthi but i was able to prebook and eat at the Orestarant and Sangu at no extra cost. All were great my favorite for location and view whilst eating was at the O restaurant where you had direct view overlooking sea. There were so many beautiful locations along beach to get that perfect picture moment especially more towards sangu end. There is a swing in water and also a hammock and the water huts are at that end of the island too. There was a different theme of entertainment everynight my favorite was my first night which was the Maldives cultural night where i was pulled up on stage to dance - really let my hair down. The white Party held every Friday night too was great fun too. I met and spoke to many other travellers of different nationalities. Highlight of vacation 5.8 restaurant AMAAZING Duniye Spa and Having my room decorated what a beautiful gesture . I would like to give a big thank you to all staff there thank you for making me feel welcome all the way from London. I would definitely recommend Kuredu Resort

This island offers you everything you could want from a winter sun destination. The resort is idyllic, the people are extremely friendly and our accommodation was perfect in facilities and location. You can sit and relax in peace and tranquility or get adventurous in the water. Scuba, snorkelling, kayaking, water skiing, Jet Ski, fishing, sailing are all available plus more. Then you have the Gym, Golf, Spa and cycling along with an array of other activities.

The buffet is varied and in my opinion is all you really need, however there are A La Carte restaurants if you prefer a fine dining experience.

The bars are well stocked and service was superb in every location.

The management are friendly and pro-active, communicating with the guests constantly to ensure that your Kuredu experience is one to remember for all the right reasons.

The site is Covid Secure. everyone wears masks in populated locations and temperature checks are mandatory in all indoor venues. Hand sanitiser stations are everywhere, we felt safe and secure for the duration of our stay.

We enjoyed the holiday that much that we extended our stay twice.

Thanks to all the staff for making this trip so special, one that I will never forget, we will be back.

We are 5 days into a 10 day holiday on this Paradise Island and from getting off the the Sea plane 5 days ago it has been just that Paradise. We are in a Beach Bungalow between 400 & 430 which we requested and we received and I must say it’s the best part of the Island. No noise from the Band or Music from the Disco on our side and also no sound of the Sea Planes leaving at 7am each morning. Not that we are adverse to the music because it’s been brilliant. The food is outstanding and we can’t wait for White Night party on Friday. We’ve been snorkelling too and also our side of the island is less windy than the other side. Don’t want our last 5 days to pass and don’t want to leave just yet.

Literally no words to describe how perfect our 3rd stay at Kuredu was! Every single thing about Kuredu was supreme!! Even the entire arrival process was flawless. From the second we stepped off the plane, to the waiting for the seaplane, staff welcome, all magical and perfection, all the 15 days we stayed!

The service is something I will not forget!

Everyone has a smile and they know your name. When you go to breakfast, housekeeping finds a way to get your room spotless before you return and the same when you go to dinner. The staff at the restaurants get to know you and even though you know its their job to provide excellent service, they go above and beyond what should be expected of them. Kuredu for us would not have been the same without all of the excellent service provided to us by the entire staff.

Special thanks to Anu, one of the bartenders. Anu is the hardest worker I have ever seen, he doesn't stop, real professional and his drinks were delicious.

The buffet staff were so friendly and welcoming, special thanks to Kahley, our waiter and the chefs Purna and Kiron.

You will not get bored here, there is so much to do!

I cannot get over how amazing and beautiful Kuredu is. My only regret about our holiday is that we didn't stay longer :).

We decided to take a break with our 2.5 half year old daughter and chose this resort as we already spent our honeymoon here.

Overall impression: The hotel was quite empty when we arrived on 13th on January and our beach bungalow looked run down and tired and in serious need of a renovation. On a plus side no masks are required except for the buffet area.

Restaurant: Only one restaurant available for guests staying in beach villas and beach and garden bungalows. The food was mediocre and lacked fresh fruit (only oranges and melon were provided whilst water melon and papaya was offered only on occasion. There is a clear lack of healthy choices (e.g muesli, fresh juices other than canned orange and apple juice and fresh fruit) are not on offer. For those trying to keep up a healthy diet the buffet is a disappointment.

Last but not least there is absolutely no child care provided although this was indicated differently at the resort’s website. The hotel has an unsupervised (!) kids club where children of all ages can play while their parents stay and supervise them. The place is dirty, dark and sad - we only went there once and did not return. My husband and I wanted to go diving together and also visit the underwater restaurant for lunch which has a restrictive policy and children are not allowed. We were informed at the reception that paid babysitting is not available for children under the age of 3. When asked whether an exception can be made so that we could at least leave for a quick lunch to the underwater restaurant (a special treat we have been looking forward to) we were given a plain no by the unfriendly reception staff.

Overall a mediocre resort with extremely inflexible and unfriendly service rules for families with small children.
We are currently staying at the resort which is pretty empty and a pretty certain that it will stay empty given its service policy and value for money.

Just message the island direct they are very helpful. Or ask ur travel agent. I personally would never go half board. It’s so expensive when u get to any of them lslands. All inc every time for us.
