“Average Resort Beautiful Surroundings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

This resort is average in terms of service/offerings. The beaches have a lot of shells so careful where you step. The water is beautiful, it is the maldives after all. The walkways here are just concrete covered in sand, nothing spectacular. The rooms are pretty average, the housekeeping is average, the restaurants are average. Breakfast/Lunch will almost be the same every day, dinner changes every night. I think the meat they cant get rid of in lunch gets used in dinner in currys and other stews. I had stomach issues and I ate in some of the dirtiest places before.

Everything cost extra here, from the Wifi to the drinks. For the price you pay, you could be getting 5 star service in a resort in the Caribbeans. If this resort was anywhere else, it would just be a really really average place. Don't expect any type of service that you haven't seen anywhere else. We stayed at the O room. The receptionist said that teas and coffees were unlimited but the room itself only have an espresso machine so you can't even boil water so what is the point of putting the tea and coffee there when you have to request a kettle anyway? Most restaurants are covered in sand, it just feels dirty to eat in.

This resort has a lot of people, don't expect an intimate setting, one night you had to wait in the bar to get a table in the restaurant. I traveled almost 16 hours on the plane to get here and it was just disappointing at how average this resort is. Other resorts have 24 hour room service that's free since you're paying for the all inclusive package, and free wifi. It cost $6 for a soda for room service, that is just utterly crazy.

The prodiver shop needs training in customer service. If you have any sand or rocks on your items when you return them, they will ask you to wash it for them. Is that not their job?

If you're looking for a really average vacation or honeymoon, stay here and don't expect anything spectacular. Remove the beautiful maldives, and you just have a plain old resort.

Room Tip: Stay in the O section, quietest and closest to the O restaurant which is the best

We spent our honeymoon on Kuredu in April 2011. We had a great time there, one night spent in Water villa (special gift for honeymooners), the rest of our stay spent in Kohamas jacuzzi beach villa (absolutely impressed by open-air bathroom :-).
The very first feeling was too wet and hot weather after leaving the board, but we were very surprised by Kuredu´s own lounge with cold towels, air-conditioning, snacks and coffee. After landing on Kuredu we were welcome by very kind staff, cold towels, fresh drink and sound of drums :-) It was amazing first impression!
Kuredu is paradise, with gorgeous sea and water life, delicious cuisine (continental with Maldivian specialities), very good service, rooms and staff.
Our best holiday ever, we hope we are coming back on day :-)

PS: In April there were rain showers almost every day, but very short (btw. it was pleasant cleaning of the air)

we stayed in a garden bungalow no 384 for the first two weeks of October 2012,we loved everything about it including the outdoor bathroom.The room was spotless thanks to Aesa who cleaned it twice a day and made beautiful designs on the bed with flowers,thankyou for that, it made us feel special.The island is so beautiful and we knew we were in paradise.The staff all work so hard to keep the island clean and give you the best service possible.Food amazing,we ate in the Bonthi restaurant and never got bored with the choices as there was so much to choose from and it was not repetitive.Thank you Hassan our waiter,for the service you gave us,and also Ram who cooked lovely omelettes and eggs.We would also like to thank Bandara and Bobin for the lovely cocktails you both made and for keeping our glasses topped up constantly, and also Lalaith who made us so welcome on our first night. We could not find any fault in Kuredu the beaches were so beautiful with powder white sand and turquoise sea,we loved the fish the turtles the fruit bats ,the list is endless.We would recommend Kuredu it was the perfect holiday and we cant wait to come back one day,and we definitely will. Some tips for guests heading to Kuredu: Take a torch and plenty of sun cream (you will need it) and don't forget to cream your feet like I did......Ouch
Another thank you to Ken the general manager, another Pompey fan (good man). Finally to all the lovely people who we met on Kuredu a massive thank you for the laughter and making our time in paradise even better. If you choose to visit Kuredu you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Garden bungalow was perfect for our stay as we spent every moment we could outside in the sun. Would...

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Kuredu.

We mostly agree with the previous reviews, but the bed quality could have been better.

Our only advice is not to always trust your room cleaner. We had a situation that was dealt with at the time. Use the safe and don't leave anything valuable on your bed.

Kuredu.
Just got back from second holiday to Kuredu. We went back because we knew it was special, this time we saved heavily and upgraded to a water villa. We had a great holiday.
This year we decided that we would get a direct flight, it is a long way so we upgraded our seats for the 10 hour flight. Unfortunately the tour operator cancelled flights and re booked us on an emirates flight. We had flown with Emirates before and they are very good, their entertainment system is excellent but it meant a transfer in Dubai. The first flight was on an airbus 380 (excellent) but the transfer and second flight makes this a long day. We had two delays which meant that when we landed in Mali and went to get our seaplane we had missed it and had to wait 3 hours before the next one. Kuredu have their own lounge so this is not unpleasant but it is the last thing you want at the end of a long journey. I must say that from our own experiences and speaking to others this is unusual. Naturally we were shattered and to some people this would have ruined their holiday, but we knew that it was worth it, as for us Kuredu lives up to its slogan “welcome to paradise”.
The holiday was excellent and after 2 weeks we did not want to come home. The staff couldn’t do any better, facilities great and one of the advantages of being in a water villa is that we could go to any restaurant on the island, and they were all very good.
For anyone thinking of Maldives we would highly recommend Kerudu, it is one of the larger island’s so there is plenty to do. The lessons we learnt from the year before was take plenty of ‘Jungle formula’ insect repellent for in the evenings if you go out walking. We were not bitten once this trip.
The extra we paid to go into the water villa was not easy to come by, but what an experience, so much so that we will be saving to go back again. To go out onto your own sundeck in the ocean and watch the sea life and our daily visit of tortoises every morning was fantastic. We did our first snorkelling this year and couldn’t believe how great it was.
We believe that the islands website and the tour operator’s brochures do not do Kuredu justice; it certainly does not tell you everything that is included in the all-inclusive package, from golf lesson, sunset cruise, free massage, use of canoe, cocktails (of the day) as well as all the normal you would expect.
You have free Wi-Fi in two of the bars, the only thing I would change is charge $1 per day for each room and have it free throughout the island. For me with an OAP mother I like to Skype home.
I have to mention some of the staff as I do not expect that you will get service like this anywhere else, From Ibrahim who looked after our water villa, to Liusham and Samir who looked after us in the restaurant as well as Sajan our favourite cook. Darsh and Joseph in the Sangu bar and Lalaith, Bobin, Akiviz, Gurpreet, Losly and Sarath in the pool and main bar. To Ken (general manager) who goes out of his way to make sure his guests are having a great holiday. If we have missed any names please forgive us as all the staff were excellent.
So we would give Kuredu 10 out of 10 and cannot wait to go back.
To all on the island, all our thanks.

What can I say?....it's the perfect place, paradise found! We've been to Kuredu several times now & after trying other islands, Kuredu always comes out on top. The price of staying for 2 weeks goes up every year & this must be our only bad thing to say about it but most of the Maldives islands are doing the same. The service, food, rooms & the staff are what this island does very well. Try for yourself & you won't want to go anywhere else! Planning our 2013 trip very soon

We have just returned from our holiday which was one of the most memorable holidays we have had. We wanted something special as it was our 25th wedding anervarsary. As part of our holiday we wanted to renew our vows and I have to say this was the ideal place. We were met before the day to sort out all the arrangements. There was a lovely gazebo type tent draped with white linen corners with a pointed roof. After we renewed our vows we had some lovly photos taken on the beach and cutting the cake. This was followed by a candle lite dinner on the beach. When we arrived we were met by staff that were beating there drums and clapping. We were then taken to our water villa wow.... Off the beach you could sit out on the balcony or drop down to the lower level to sunbath or drop into the warn clear water. The wide range of fish you could watch from the room was amazing. These included sting rays or sharks at times but don't worry they were reef sharks so will not harm you. The food was great and catered for all. The staff could not do enough for you and the drinks were more than you would get from your typical all inclusive. Carlsberg larger and real glasses. It has two pools, one which caters for families and another that was quieter and more for adults. The snorkelling is fantastic and you can see turtles just off the beach. If you dive as I do the dive centre is well organised and offers a wide range of dive options to suit all. If you want to dive with the manta rays and sharks this is the place for you. In summary I would recommend to anyone and would go back without any doubts. First class.

We thank you very much for your review of the silver wedding anniversary that you celebrated on Kuredu. it is very pleasing for us to learn from your review that it was a holiday that you enjoyed very well, and would want to repeat it again. We wish to very sincerely also thank you for the high recommendation given in your review.

Renewal of Wedding Vows is a very special experience when you re-confirm your love to your beloved with the skies lighted up by the setting sun around you and waves singing a song that only your hearts would understand. We are sure that the pictures taken on the beach would be the most memorable pictures in your album.

It would be a great pleasure to welcome you back very soon for your holiday.
