Was my second visit here. The first one in 2017 (with family) was a 5/5 - this one would be a 2/5 (with friends) . Primarily because of the following reasons: - The server named Upul at Kandu bar was really rude and was trying to look down upon us. There was a confusion with the order ( acc to him we ordered 4 drinks for a group of 3, according to us we ordered 3 drinks for 3 people).Even if it were my mistake - I would still expect the server to be polite - He was simply rude and spoke to us a in pretty non dignified manner which was really upsetting. Did escalate it to the front desk who said they will investigate the matter - not sure what the investigation resulted into. Would like to say the rest of the staff were really polite but all it needs is one bad experience to play spoilsport. - Took a deluxe ocean front bungalow so that we could snorkel easily - however the ocean water was unfortunately not very clean and a lot corals/fish have vanished vis-a-vis the last time we visited. Not sure what the resort can do in maintain the ocean in its vicinity. Can empathize with the resort management on this as COVID times have been tough for the hospitality industry

I do not think, I can praise this place enough. It is heavenly. Everything about it is perfect. I’ve been to 27 countries worldwide, and this place is absolutely unique. Upon arrival at the airport, we were taken to a boat. The boat is modern and very comfortable. You get drinking water. You can stay in the enclosed air-conditioned area with leather coaches or climb upstairs and enjoy the ocean breeze. The trip to the resort takes less than 10min. While the staff checks you in, you sit at the beautiful reception area and enjoy complimentary coconut ice cream. The ice cream is made of a real coconut. I lost count how much of it we ate during our stay. Upon check-in, an electric cart takes your party to your bungalow. Room - I booked Deluxe Bungalow for the 4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids). The bungalow was gorgeous, spacious and stylish. Big terrace with a sofa, table and chairs. There is a water facet at the entrance, so one can wash the sand off. We had a king bed and two single beds, so we were very comfortable sleeping. Huge TV, spacious closet, great bar. The bathroom deserves its own review :). It is huge, and half of it is outside under the open air. The part that is inside has a bathtub, a shower, a toilet, and a sink. Beautiful, beautiful design!! The part that is outside has a beautifully-designed shower, a couple of coconut trees, and a bamboo ladder for drying things. There is no way anyone can see you while you are showering outside. I am veeery sensitive to the noise – we could not hear neighbors or any noise while inside the bungalow. Premises – lush coconut palms, trees, and grass. The island is very, very green. You can walk around it if you wish. In our case, the distance from the door to the beach was about 20meters (~65 feet). Every bungalow gets a piece of the beach and personal beach chaises(with your bungalow number on them). We got 2 chaises – they were waiting for us on the beach under the beautiful palms and covered with the beach towels. Beach is beautiful, the water is exactly as on the pictures. There were no waves at all during our stay – perfect for kids. There is a store, where you can buy all the necessities and souvenirs. You can rent snorkeling gear for your stay (I believe, it was free). Great pool in case you want to use one. I preferred the ocean. A library, a pool table, a spa, a splash play ground for kids, and the list goes on. Food – Japanese restaurant is very popular, so book well in advance. I called 3 days in advance, and they were already fully booked. Our preferred place was buffet. Plenty of food of any kind for adults and kids. If you like sweets and deserts, you must eat a dinner here. Desert selection is mind-blowing, everything is delicious, very fresh, and exceptional quality. Too lazy to go to the restaurant? No problem. You can order food to be delivered to your room. Entertainment/Activities – We took a snorkeling trip (fishes), swimming with stingrays, and swimming with turtles. All tours were worth every penny. My 4 year old niece accompanied us as well, and enjoyed the tours a lot. There is a babysitting service if you need one. In the evening, there is music, singing and dancing at the bar. Service – The staff deserves ten stars by themselves. Every single person who we interacted with was very friendly and accommodating. My niece is ridiculously picky with food. We ordered soup for her, and asked if the veggies could be removed. No questions asked – we got soup with no veggies. You get fresh beach and bath towels daily. We got more than we were able to use. The Covid PCR test is taken right on the premises in a matter of minutes, and you get a printed report upon departure. We needed a doctor once, and got professional help immediately. The doctor works on premises. Booking tours, getting answers and help at the reception was always fast and easy. Tour guides and crew are knowledgeable, honest, professional and very caring. We felt very safe and well cared for in their company. On my birthday, a piece of chocolate cake with birthday wishes was delivered to our bungalow. This was completely unexpected and very, very pleasant. Also, while we were at the beach, the bed was decorated with birthday wishes and flowers. I was touched! Dear Kurumba, thank you for making my birthday absolutely unforgettable, and for sharing a part of your amazing country and hospitality with us!

The whole Maldives islands complex looks stunning from the airplane when descending for landing in Male . I booked a seafront bungalow. I think this is a must . Plantation is awesome . Palm trees and other trees are everywhere . Absolute tropic beach . White sand from corals . Water has a light blue color . The bungalow is big. Very nice bed , very spacious bedroom, really nice ambient light in the night . All the details are well thought . The shower toilet area is another very spacious place. I loved the open space shower. It gives you the feeling being in this tropic paradise . They have really nice toiletries for washing your hair and your body. And nice body lotion . I loved the shower every single day! Minibar has many things to snack and drink . They also have espresso maker with capsules . Place was very clean , they give you fresh clean towels everyday even for the beach. You have your private sunbeds on the beach. I loved their flip flops ! They have the Kurumba logo printed on with rose gold letters ! Our villa was facing west. Sunset is stunning. They also have huge umbrellas at the entrance door so you won’t get wet if you walk around . Food is very very tasty and freshly made every day . Central restaurant has many options to eat in the form of a buffet . Indian food and local cuisine and every kind of meat and local fish . We loved it . The other restaurants serve ethnic food . We visited all . They are really good. Bar is very nice . Gym is open 24/7 and it has everything you want to exercise with. And nice dance music! We enjoyed it so much! We didn’t visit the spa place but it looks really cool . There are so many people working there and they are ready to deal with everything you want and desire. Very kibd and smiling all the time . I really appreciated their efforts. They keep everything clean , they take care of the plantation there every single day . This place is very romantic . Quality of service is really high . Place is not cheap but is worth it . You feel the real vacations time refreshing you.

Best views, best services( thanks Tatiana), best marine exposure within the island waters and the best pina colada( thanks to Priyankarar). This property is very well maintained and super clean. Recreational activities within the premises will definitely keep you abs in shape. A must visit resort. Quick Tip: carry good healing ointment for sunburns.

We visited Kurumba Maldives for 3 weeks and since we were staying for a longer period, we wanted good food and a pleasant stay. We were glad that are expectations were most certainly met, specially by Chef Viji and Chef Faisal who offered great food as per our request (customized for a vegetarian appetite) . Outstanding food with varied forms was offered by Chef Robert (Oriental food) and Chef Vipula with a friendly touch. The staff was also very coorperative and made sure our requirements were met fully, special thanks to Ahmed for being around and helping us at every step. Overall, a very relaxing and pleasant stay with great staff and good food.
