We spend 6 nights of our honeymoon in a Deluxe Jacuzzi Villa at Kuramathi. We have nothing but rave reviews about the place. The island is just beautiful, especially at the sandbank. We were simply astounded by how clear, blue and warm the water was. It was truly paradise.

The room was great and we loved waking up to the view of the ocean. The room was also very clean and a really good size. We only used the jacuzzi twice. I wished the water in the jacuzzi could have been heated to a higher temperature but it did not bother my husband the slightest bit.

I was glad we went on the select all inclusive package, as I was not very impressed with the buffets at the main restaurant. My favorite places to eat were the Italian, Thai and Indian restaurant.

Although it is a very big resort for Maldives with fairly large number of guest, it never felt crowded or busy. A perfect honeymoon.

We arrived at the resort just as the sun was setting due to a delay in Male whilst we waited for other international flights to land with passengers also going to Kuramathi by sea plane. This was frustrating as we lost two hours of our family holiday because other international flights were behind time. On arriving at the resort we checked in and were shown where our room was located on a map, the location we were shown was very close to reception so we decided to walk, we soon realized that we had been shown the wrong location on the map and some time later we arrived at our room, our two children aged 5 and 3 took it in their stride although Mum and Dad were a bit miffed. So, we are in our room, which was very nice and modern, clean and set back from the shore line in amongst several other beach villas with Jacuzzi. We set off for dinner at around 1930hrs and eventually we found the restaurant and were shown to our table where our waiter Usam would look after us for the next 5 days. Incidentally we opted for the basic all inclusive package, which suited us although the food became a bit boring by the end of day 3. The select all inclusive allows you to dine anywhere on the island, but if you want to go to the reef or the island grill, book early as it is always full for the next two or three days. The next day we headed to the kids club with our girls and we really cannot fault them in any way, the two girls that take care of the children were brilliant. However it was at this time we realized that our room location was less than ideal. We had quite a long walk to the restaurant and even further to the kids club, there is a mini van that runs up and down the island but our room location was not situated in a very good place to catch the mini van, when we did see it, it was already full and heading somewhere else. This situation was beginning to seriously undermine the "relaxing" element of our stay. We made our feeling known and the management and they moved us to a much better location, very close to the restaurant, the best beach area, the reception and most importantly the mini van pick up point. Things improved immediately and we really began to feel thatbwe were now in the Maldives. The snorkeling was fantastic and we took full advantage of the cocktail list whilst the kids were having their own fun in thte kids club. My main criticism of Kuramathi would be the food in the main restaurants. The lunches and evening meals are not very good at all. I would visit Kuramathi again because it does offer everything we need, but I did have to get quite pushy on a few issues where I felt Kuramathi's "policy" on certain topics were stacked in favor of the resort and overlooked the comfort and satisfaction of the guests. Finally we checked out at 1300hrs today, left the island at 1500hrs and at 1910hrs I am sitting at MLE waiting for our flight which is due to leave at 2040hrs. I felt our departure from Kuramathi was at least two hours premature, but it felt like they couldn't get rid of us fast enough. There wasn't even a thanks for coming and we hope to see you again one day. In summary the resort is beautiful and the rooms are very nice, the marine life is as you would expect, it is only the little things where Kuramathi needs to up it's game, because it may be classed as 4 star as averse to 5 star, bit it ain't cheap!

Where to start??????????

This place is amazing! So romantic, picturesque, great value, great service!

We stayed in a beach front villa (the basic/ cheapest room) for 9 nights in May.

We flew Emirates from bham through Dubai. Emirates are amazing and a great way to start your holiday in style.

We opted for the boat transfer which was ok. The sea was a bit choppy and my husband was stuck next to a poor woman who was very poorly with sea sickness (felt sorry for her as she was on her honeymoon). We were fine though and would probably use boat transfer if we visited again.

ROOM (no 5) : overall great. Our room was fab as we were right on the beach. The room was spacious, clean & bed was very comfy. The decor was very slightly dated (I get the impression many of the rooms are newly decorated and ultra sleek) but still not unlike what we were expecting from picking the cheapest and it is only a 4 star afterall. The outdoor shower was nice too. If we visit again I would absolutely stay in the same room though as the location made up for the very slightly dated interior. Would request any of rooms 1-8.

FOOD: OMG... amazing! totally exceeded our expectations! We eat in excellent restaurants and really enjoy visiting michelin star restaurants world wide so we have high expectations. We were amazed by the quality for an all inclusive resort! DEFINATELY go foor the all inclusive SELECT!!!!
You get breakfast as normal in the buffet restaurant however we only visited once and I was glad we had opted for select as we didnt have to go there for lunch or dinner. Theres lots of families with children, noisy, busy etc which you never see if your select as restaurants are small, attentive, great quality with lovely atmospheres. We ate at all of the restaurants and found it difficult to pick a favourite but if we had to then probably reef. But the indian and thai really were excellent. We didnt have one bad meal. We ate absolutely everything we wanted to without thinking ''i'm not having mussels/ prawns etc because i'm abroad''. never had an upset tummy. brilliant!! Definately BY FAR the best all inc resort we've stayed at!!!!!!! We never bothered trying the buffet restaurants for lunch or diner because we thought it would be a come down compared to the restaurants.

Select also gives you all the alcohol and soft drinks you want. The Mojitos were fab as were the pina colada. You can order bottles of wine with your meals in the restaurants and this is still included in the select package. Cannot praise it enough from a foodie point of view and for excellent value.

We took windsurfing lessons and the german instructor Terrie was brilliant!! Really great fun and
great way to get a tan whilst working off all that food!

The gym was good. My husband went everyday and would class as adequate. I went once found a bit hot (but what do you expect in the Maldives)

Weather was great. It rained every morning but this was before we woke up as we slept in til 10 so didnt affect us.

OUR TIP: save your money by staying in the basic rooms and splurge on the AI select!!

Our first trip to Kuramathi for our honeymoon and it certainly wont be our last. Incredible.

Room Tip: We chose a garden villa which is one of the cheaper options, glad we did, much better situated than some of the villas further inland (granted, we are only talking a few meters, but still), literally right on the shore

If you want a fantastic Maldive vacation, look no further than Kuramathi. The facilities are exquisite, and the staff is very accommodating. Rasdhoo Divers is amazing, and the dive pros are top-notch. My only critique is that the buffet-style Haruge restaurant (to which our basic all-inclusive was assigned) could use more vegetarian options. Overall, Kuramathi was fantastic, and I would not hesitate to return.
