This was a "one-off" holiday celebrating a number of milestones and it lived up to all of our expectations based on what we knew about the Maldives from friedns and family.
We stayed in a water bungalow and it was fantastic - being able to walk out of the bunglaow onto yhe deck and into the ocean was unmissable. All bungalows have a view of the fantastic sunsets. Fish on the reef were abundant in number, variety and colour - watch out for the trigger fish - they can be a bit tetchy !
Food - outstanding, lots of fresh fish.

I really cannot fault it.

Dear Guest,

Warm greetings from the Maldives!

It gives us great pleasure to note that your holiday has come to meet your expectations very well. This is the greatest reward that we could expect from our guests.

Water Villas are a class by itself. The traquelity and closeness to the marine life entwins your holiday with gorgeousness of nature. Very close to the water villas are turtle caves that house almost three generations of turtles. They add a lot of life to the waters around the resort.

We wish to earnestly thank you for taking time to write this review on us.

It would be a great pleasure to welcome you once again for your next holiday in the Maldives.

Warm regards,
Chris Nargunam

sea plane transfer was a great experience, the welcome was wonderful island is run very efficently. we stayed in a beach bungalow with the idea to pay for an ungrade when we got there, but we ended up loving the bungalow. the beach was so close and ideal for my husband as there was plenty of shade. we did'nt use the pool once as we could'nt see the point when you have the wonderful indian ocean a few feet from bungalow, the beach where we were probably was'nt the prettiest on the island but certainly had the best sealife it stays quite swallow there but found a spot where a pipe sticks out of the water and it is good for snorkelling.food loverly plenty of choice and service was good. we used the akiri and babuna bar all the bar staff were lovely, if you want a quiet drink with great scenery would recommend the golf club bit out of the way but worth it. not much night life but on a friday they put on a white party with a dj, have to say me the other half enjoyed this and let our hair down maybe a little to much lol. we went on a couple of excursions one was half a day visiting the main island and then snorkelling of komando island can't remember the name of the person who did this excursion but he was so helpful with the snorkelling as i'm only a novice. only one negative for some reason on the first week we did get bitten quite a bit, think it was from the sand flies second week not so bad.
could write so much more but we loved our totally relaxing holiday and would someday like to revisit :)

Room Tip: we loved the beach bungalows ideal for us as we only slept there most of your time is spent outside.

Dear Guests,

Greetings from your holiday destination in the Maldives - Kuredu Island Resort and Spa!

We wish to thank you very much for penning your review of the holiday recently had with us. Nothing else would be more satisfying for us than to note that you tharoughly enjoyed your holiday.

From your review we note note that you have utlised the facilties on the resort well, and that have enhanced your holiday experience. Kuredu being a resort with many options, allows you to put together the kind of holiday that would amuse you the most.

With over 3.5 kilo meters of beach around the resort, each part has it's own uniquness in terms of marine life that you could enjoy. The northern beach, where your accommodation is located, faces the outside of the atoll and hence the fishes one gets to see here are more from the open ocean as against the fragile and colourful ones that you could see by the southern beach facing the inner waters of the atoll.

We thank you once again and look forward to your next holiday inb the paradise.

Warm regards,
Chris Nargunam

We stayed here for 2 weeks in November for our honeymoon.
The whole expereince from start to finish was wonderful.

Accomodation:
We stayed in a JBV on the Koamas side of the island. Initially i was a little dissapointed, as we were hoping for the O resort - HOWEVER, upon further inspection, we were really really pleased. We were located in room 215, with a clear view of the ocean and the white sand right at your feet - and no sea wall to have to look at. This side of the island, is for sure the best when it comes to the beaches, swimming and snorkling! And depending upon the direction of the wind, we would quite often see the sea planes come and go - some people wouldn't like the noise of this, but i loved it - and it NEVER woke me from my slumber!! :)

The room was lovely and the bathroom was an expereince.
If i was to visit again i would probably go for a regular beach villa, as we only used the jacuzzi twice.

Food:
Brilliant! We are both veggie, and had no complaints, service ws brilliant. We dined at some of the other restaurants, and although O resort and sangu had better views, i feel the service was much much better in Koamas.

Dive cente:
Excellent, my husband had his first expereince of scuba diving, the staff were all lovely, and i understand it was quite an expereince having a sting ray swim passed you :)

Swimming pools:
We found the main pool area far to busy, so would pop up to the O resort in the day when not swimming in the sea - staff there and pool boy were exceptional - definitely the best pool area by a long shot!

The only reason i would not give this place 5 stars is because of the all inclusive pakage. We had done our research so we knew what to expect. We had regular AI, so we could drink in any of the bars/restaurants, this suited us.

My biggest criticism, is that you get 1x1.5lt bottle of water per day in your room, ok thats lovely - but if you want to get another bottle to take back to the room, they charge, Considering the heat, and the fact my husband ran a couple of laps around the island everyday, we got through this pretty quick, and felt like we were constantly having to get water - and having to pay for it when you are AI i think is pure madness!

We are not big alcohol drinkers, so the gold package didn't really interest us.

Overall a wonderful holiday, and with a few tweeks here and there - this place would be 5 stars!

Dear Guest,

Warm greetings from sunny Maldives!

it was a great pleasure reading your very honest review of your holiday with us - we say "Thank you!"

Your villa was right in front of the house reef and hence you had the great opportunity to view extensive marine life. The villa being located on the southern beach, whcih is the inner part of the atoll, the soft waves deposit doft coral sand and hence you had the best beach on the island.

It is very satisfying for us to note that you have made good use of the various facilties we have to offer our guests. Each one of them are designed to greatly enhance the value of your holiday with us.

We do note that you were not very happy with our all inclusive package. We are aware that there is a defenite differnece between the all inclusive concept practised in Carribian and Maldives. We therefore have ensured the contents of the package is featured in all our partners' brochures and also on our web site to be certain correct iformation is provided to our guests.

As part of the all inclusive package we place a bottle of water in the room for use while being in the room. The guests get served free glasses of water at main restaurants and bars without limit.

You would be delighted to note that by May 2013 we will be placing two, one liter bottles of water in each of our guests rooms daily.

Therefore, on your next visit we hope to score the full marks on your review. We look forward to your next visit.

Warm regards,

Just returned from Kuredu Maldives our second visit.
This is exactly what they advertise, Paradise Island.
Kuredu is a larger island than most which suits my wife and me because we love to walk every day.
It takes about an hour’s stroll to walk around, more if you stop for a coffee on the way, and what a walk. White sand beach’s with palm trees, crystal clear water with fish swimming close to the shore if you are lucky even a turtle. Walk through the middle of the island to the immaculately kept little golf course, have a lesson with the PGA pro.
The food here is unbelievable, the choice fantastic, every day pasta, curries, stir fries, meat, chicken and fish. Starter’s main meal, puddings, pastries and fruit.
My wife is a Coeliac which means she has an allergic reaction if she was to eat wheat or gluten, no problem. Every day the head chef would walk her round and tell her what not to eat, a lot of their cooking is with corn flour any way.
Almost all the accommodation (except Garden Bungalows) are on the beach or water villas
of different types, we were in a Jacuzzi beach villa; open the door with palm trees and the sea in front of you. The room had tea and coffee making facilities to sit on our balcony every morning with a cup of tea spotting the dolphins out at sea was just heaven.
Lots of people go diving from here they even have their own dive boat, my wife and I just snorkel but what an experience that is, it’s like being in an aquarium. The water is crystal clear and warm.
In every department there is lots of staff who are so friendly you never have to wait for a drink or anything you need. They even have staffs who rake the beach every day.
If you do not want to sit on the beach you can sit by the pool and be waited on all day.
One of the highlights for us was to go on the Dolphin safari where you go out on a speed boat and the dolphins swim with the boat and even turn to look at you, fantastic.
It wasn’t for us but you can go sailing, there is a gym, dive centre, shops, games room etc.
There is about five different bars all nice and to sit having a cool drink was more our style.
Saving up already to go back next year for our third visit can come soon enough, wonderful.

Room Tip: All villas are very good.

Just arrived back, what a wonderful place!
Absolute paradise, we wanted peace tranquility and a relaxing time, this resort delivered on all counts. You can escape every day life here, sorry but no holiday company night entertainment, this is not what this island is about. there are bars you can mix with others if you so wish. We had a sangu water villa and the room had everything you could want. Great views of sea life. I was surprised with a Candlelight Dinner on the beach and this was really special. Sangu area has no under 12's . We could not fault the whole holiday, the only warning would be that when we arrived we were upgraded to a sultan pool villa as the water villas were over booked, fantastic villas but not what we wanted, so if you are set on a particular accommodation type then suggest you confirm with resort before you arrive to avoid disappointment. The resort did move us after one night and compensated us .

Room Tip: Sangu and "O" areas are the quietest

Dear Tracey,

Greetings to you from your holiday destination in the Maldives - Kuredu Island Resort and Spa,

On beahlf of each member in the team, we thank you very much for your honest review of the holiday had in November this year. Your review has made us happy for being able to offer you a holiday that has met your expectations quite well.

The resort is designed around the concept of proving a holiday that would effectively transport our guests from their regular hustle and bustle of city life. We are a destination that is all about you - serene tranquility amidst pleantiful tropical nature and wild life. Having developed just about 16% of the island, our guests do get them pleantifully.

As much as we try, there are circumstances we encounter, though very seldom, where we have to offer our guests to expereince an accomodation category different from their reserved type. As they often are complimentary upgrades, some guests consider the possibility of continuing in the same villa. Hoewever, we do acknowledge that holiday in the Maldies is all about sun, sand and sea.. Kindly accept our very sincere apology for this incident you have experienced.

We do hope this would not deter your plans to return back to us for your next possible holiday in the Maldives.

Warm regards,
Chris Nargunam

It's all that you dream of with a island of beauty,from us stepping of the sea plane and hearing the drums to welcome you.
It's an island that can accommodate all you needs, they may be a lot of people on the island but have to say is so peaceful if you want it to be, you don't see them and can have those private times.
Even when it rains your still in paradise and still swim ect, the staff can not do any more for you as they do, they don't stop.
I think it is worth you going and seeing yourself as we will again,no where can beat Kuredu island , thanks to all staff. X
