"Kurumba excellent facilities - service lacking"
excellent facilities, so clean, close to male so convenient only 10 min transfer. such a pity staff are not more engaged and better trained - general statement but really feel this is an element to be urgently attended to - there of course some stars but needed throughoutGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely vacation in Kurumba"
It was a lovely vacation & our 2nd stay in kurumba Maldives. Their staff are friendly & remembered us in december when we first visited. Excellent place for a family vacation or even couples. Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Want to go back"
We enjoyed a 4 night stay at Kurumba in June, 2014. We arrived into male airport and just outside the arrival door, at pillar 4 was the Kurumba representative- it was a quick walk to the boat, and we were off. Cool cloths and water were provided for the short ride. Unfortunately, our flight arrived at night, so we really did not see much. The check […] in was smooth- provided with the tasty coconut ice cream, and then taken to our room. It was # 115, the second floor, large and with a huge bathroom, complete with outdoor shower (my husband's favorite). The next morning, we opened the curtains to a breath taking view of white sand and blue water. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty, we also ate at the Ocean Grill and Cucina (Italian). Both were delicious. Do make reservations for any a la carte restaurants. We went out on the dolphin cruise, did the house reef snorkeling tour and the cooking class.

"One of a kind Paradise..."
More than words can say,,,everything went well,,,from service to the room, from food to drinks, and from location to the island place was so beautiful,,for sure we will be coming back with friends and relatives. Kurumba,,One of a kind paradise..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall a great stay.....the noise which are generated from seaplane and airplane as it is near the Male airport, proved to be a non event.......Infact, I enjoyed seeing the seaplane and aeroplane flying past while I relax at the beach......Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Perfect Gataway!"
Kurumba is the ultimate getaway! Luxurious, Friendly, Great location, fantastic Snorkelling, huge choice of cuisines, always smiling and helpful staff! No one could ask for more. We want to keep going back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous service and espectacular beaches"
We did really have a fantastic time, especially relaxing at the quiet beach and then going for a snorkeling after too much tanning. Food was really good but very overpriced as we thought they charged like a 2 star Michelin restaurant although it wasn't even close to being that great. The spa was the best experience we had there. The massages were tremendously […] good and they care about every single detail to ensure the atmosphere (decoration, smells, tea, toiletries, etc) is pleasant and enjoyable. In general, the facilities are top notch and we only had a minor malfuction in the bathtub where the fawcett was loose. We also enjoyed the concept of half open bathroom (no roof) as it felt like showering in the wild, with unusual birds and geckos Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Superb resort, everything we wanted and more."
From arrival to departure we were looked after, any requests we made were dealt with and responded to more than adequately. The whole experience from staff, to food, to accommodation, to facilities was spot on.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms very comfortable and spotlessly clean, quality of food very good (but expensive, though this is to be expected for a resort location suchas this). Easy to swim from beach. Easy transfer from airport and Male.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent getaway location to relax and indulge in nature. Snorkelling in the clear blue water was enjoyable with staff guides leading the activity, lots of fish and aquatic creatures can be seen there. Service of resort staffs was friendly and hospitable. It was a great experience for me and my husband!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and more affordable resort in Maldives"
Overall we had a very good stay. Staff service was excellent, room was spacious and comfortable, there was a good variety of cuisine for hotel food and there was always some fun activities to do. Room - the furnishing was slightly dated but nevertheless the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. I really like the bathroom as it was big, had his […] and her sinks, a bath tub and 2 showers (1 indoor 2 outdoor). Also there's a balcony if you want to to relax outdoor. Service - this was impeccable! Hotel staff was always very courteous and helpful. We had a lady called Selvi who attended to us for check in and throughout our stay she was very helpful and knowledgable with our various other queries. Five star service! Food - the breakfast spread was of good variety. We stayed for a week and the spread was different almost everyday. For dinners, if you're tired of more buffets (also very good dinner spread), try the specialty restaurants. We checked out Ocean Grill and Hamakaze (Jap teppanyaki place) and enjoyed it. Activities - they have amenities like tennis courts, swimming pools (2 of those), recreation centre complete with table tennis and pool tables, and also a host of programs everyday (Male excursion, sunset dolphin cruise, guest cocktail nigts, sunset jazz by the beach) so you're never bored. Some are complementary and some are not. We enjoyed snorkelling at the beach and did some diving with Euro Divers. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay with Kurumba Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful one night experience!"
We stayed only 2 days and one night, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The snorkelling was great for beginners or those who have not snorkelled in a long time, and there was enough marine life to satisfy me. The resort was really wonderful!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great view and located by the beach"
We booked the superior room and the location is awesome ! We have the beach view at our door step. There are 2 designated beach chairs for each room. Just take your swimming attire, walk out, lie down on the beach chair, sun tan or a good read and finally a dip in the clear sea when you feel hot ! There are lotsa fishes,corals and we spotted small […] grey reef sharks swimming in the shallow waters. An all natural enivronment to enjoy ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great relaxing break"
Lovely room (deluxe beach front), great service, good food (especially Hamkaze and Ocean Grill). Snorkelling was fun and, frankly, you don't need to do the excursions the coral near the hotel is just as good. It's close to the airport (15 mins) which is great but it does mean you will see and hear lots of aeroplanes. It didn't bother us all. Lots of […] leisure facilities, free wifi (even on the beach). Overall great value and a fabulous break. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location and food, poor service"
good experience of maldives with beautiful island and nature. However not happy with the services at restaurant. Arrival greeting at kurumba was good with houseboat transfer but even for that had to wait 15 minutes. Costly food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"All we have hoped for"
Perfect place for families with small children. Safe, lots of facilities, close to the airport. staff is used to small children- they were really nice to our very active 15 months old sonGenuine Expedia guest review
"Genuinely a taste of Paradise"
Kurumba is ideal for Maldives experience. Just a 10 minute boat ride from the airport and you are in the most wonderful environment. There is a good choice of restaurants, a couple of decent bars and plenty to do with complimentary snorkelling gear, and even presentations from marine biologists. Before we went I was concerned about comments about the […] aircraft leaving the nearby airport. They were there, but were not a problem - and actually proved to be something to watch - particularly at Happy Hour at the Beach Bar. I will certainly go back again. The 'extras' are pricey but not unusual for the type of hotel ... comparable to those in 5-star hotels in major world cities. It was bliss and four days not enough. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Friendly staff and ok hotel. The island is very close to the airport and therefore loud airtraffic 24 hours days/night. Food is ok but none of the chefs are excellent. They could maximize their business by also offering drink service on the beach. It is odd to see 20 waiters in an almost empty café/ lunch restaurant when all of the guests are on the […] beach with no service...gym and tenniscourts work well as well as the spa. Beautiful beach and nice beach chairs. Most guests are chinese and russian. Good offer on activities. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The service is very good!"
The environment is perfect! The blue sky and ocean, the white sands... The island is not very big, you just need about 30 mins to walk around the island. The stuff will say hello to you when they meet you, the service is very good. And there's many restaurants in the island, you can eat different kinds of foods.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fantastic service. The speedboat transport to and from the island was a superb way to travel. The staff made every effort to ensure our stay was memorable. If only we could have afforded to stay longer. Despite the cost it was worth every penny.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have just returned from a blissful week at Kurumba Maldives. I’m not the sort of person who would normally give a glowing report—I relish customer feedback questionnaires!—but my husband and I have wracked our brains and the only negative comment we could come up with is that they change the towels too often and could be more environmentally friendly […] in this regard, giving customers the option of using the towels again, rather than replacing them every day. Having read hundreds of reviews prior to our trip, we were pleasantly surprised at how consistently excellent everything was at Kurumba. The staff were always friendly and polite, the service was always great, the food was always of a high standard, the rooms and public areas were clean, the gym was well-equipped and well-maintained, even the beach was swept every day, and there were so many really nice little touches that made this a very special holiday. Like so many other reviewers, we literally did not want to leave after a week. Nice little touches: On arrival, we were given a cool, wet towel to freshen up and a dish of gorgeous coconut ice cream. Other nice touches included the orchid on the bed and the mojito making kit in the room, the complimentary cocktail party on Tuesday evening with nibbles and free massages, champagne for breakfast every day, fresh fruit and fruit slushies brought round to you while you sit at the pool. At dinner on several evenings (in the main buffet) there was wond Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It is our second stay. For a family vacatlon with kids, kurumba is hard to beat. Very professional and friendly service with -can do- attitude make you enjoy your days there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was absolutely amazing. Beautiful Island. Agree food/ transfers were slightly expensive but so was everywhere else around there. Would go back again and recommend to friends/ family. Staff were very helpful. To be honest I cannot think of a bad thing to say about this resort.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything is class except for the cost of food and drinks in restaurants/room. there is no way to communte between Male and resort other than official costly arrangement by resort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We was at Kurumba Maldives from 29th November to 04th December. A short getaway with fantastic experience. Love the beatiful crystal clear sea water, with fishes on the shallow water. We can only said... we had an awesome holiday!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 out of 5!"
I chose this place for 2 reasons mainly - it's only a 10 min speed boat ride away from the airport since I only stayed 4N and it has the best reviews of all places I've looked at. I got on the boat without waiting and at 2pm sharp my bungalow was ready. It wasn't directly at the beach front but a mere 35m away. Good if you want a little more privacy […] but still prefer to be close to the beach. I didn't pick up any of their activities as I had my own plans to relax but there were quite a few activities available. Bungalow was nothing short of great and the friendly room service guy left 2 bottles of water FOC every day. Breakfast buffet was amazing and I took an hour every morning to enjoy it. The restaurants I've tried all carried well prepared dishes. You expect food prices to be a little on the higher side but they weren't too far away from prices in better restaurants in capital cities. Staff was all friendly at any time and acted pretty relaxed and natural. All the folks and management have done a great job! No flaws to report here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We got an upgrade!"
We've booked for superior after reading some great reviews about the resort and was expecting the same. But we got surprise when we check in and found out that we've been upgrade to a beach front deluxe bungalow. The staff are extremely friendly and nice chatter too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good...right on beach"
We stayed 5 nights in Nov and had a great time! Stayed in a beach bungalow, which was just a few steps from the beach/beautiful lagoon. Room was good & clean and had all the necessary amenities (loved the outside shower). Good recreational / water sports activities (including snorkeling, scuba diving, excursions/tours, water sports, etc). Food was great […] too, with about 5-6 restaurants so plenty of choice. The bars are a good place to relax in the evenings over a few drinks. Above all, very friendly staff...everyone, from the handymen to management, would always greet you with a smile. Also has a goods kids club, with plenty of activities to keep the young minds entertained...so we were able to leave a 5-year old daughter there for lengthy periods sometimes so wife & I could have some quality alone time as well (it's free by the way). Special mention to Aida at the kids club who did a great job looking after our daughter...she loved it and became very fond of Aida...so much so that for once she chose to be at the kids club rather than the swimming pool!! Overall a very good resort...nice place to chill out Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to get to and from airport."
Very expensive and not good value for money. Rooms were not clean and needed updating. Cleaning service was erratic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel to Stay. Tough place for Vegetarians"
I and my wife had visited Kurumba Maladives on Sep 13th for our wedding Anniversary on Sep 15th.. The hotel was excellent. Nice and crystal clear water on the beach. Good Ambience and very clean. The hospitality was great. In fact they surprised us on Sep 15th by Decorating the room which was really superb. Food was very costly. In fact I can say it […] is a day light robbery. A buffet when converted to Indian ruppee works out to Rs. 5000/- Per person in too much. Very limited choice for Vegetarians. Their Target customers are more of Europeans and Americans and hence all the dishes were listed in the menu targeting their food style. There was a separate Indian Restaurant and even there the taste was not great. Overall a nice place to relax and good place to enjoy water sports. Reserve your expectations on the food alone.

"Kurumba a very dear place"
The hotel is well managed and organized, providing a very pleasant experience to the guests. On the other hand the island is very close to Malè Int. airport and quite noisy. If you want to have a real Maldivian environment we sugeest to look for an other island.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fantastic hotel, the rooms, the grounds, the setting, truly wonderful. And amazing staff, couldn't ask for more. Love Kurumba and can't wait to go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel, with very short transfer times"
After initially putting us in a room alongside the only (small) amount of building work going on, we were relocated, albeit at our request. Once in the new room we had a great stay - the resort was peaceful and never felt crowded. We liked the fact that it had a mix of couples, families and friend groups, so didn't feel like the clichéd Maldives honeymoon […] resort. Tried and enjoyed several of the restaurants - particularly liked the Sand Bar at sunset. It is only 10 minutes from Male and the airport - but you get very little noise. From the reception/restaurant side of the island you get views of Male, which we liked. From the other side, the more conventional view of sea and a couple of other small islands.

if you're a family looking for a holiday in Maldives, look no further. this is the perfect resort for you and your kids. your kids will enjoy the Kids activities, the swimming pool, etc... the staff is very friendly and very welcoming. book your holiday here and you will enjoy every bit of it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
From a family point,Kurumba cater to all age.Non-diver can still have quite a wide choices of activities to take part & enjoy different things. For diver,the dive center did a fair job in finding a suitable & good dive site.But I will say having Kurumba,which is very close to Male & the airport,the dive site wasn't the best.Genuine Expedia guest review
Cannot recommend this enough! Yes it's close to Male & you can see it from the east side but the rooms are beautiful, well kept & modern (we had deluxe pool villa) well looked after by our villa attendant every day. The food is out if this world, beautiful beaches & most of all- wonderful staff! It was our honeymoon/Babymoon plus I was celebrating my […] birthday and we couldn't have been spoilt more. World class service with a personal touch. We will go back without a doubt, probably for an anniversary. 10 mins by private speedboat so very convenient after a long flight from London. I have travelled extensively with my work for the past 16 years and have been lucky enough to stay in some of the highest rated hotels in the world- kurumba will not disappoint! Amazing place <3 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great location for couples. Advantage of this resort is that it is a superb resort which is close to the airport, so no long sea plane or boat journeys.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great all rounder"
Hard to find any major fault with the hotel. It was amazing that there is a great selection of restaurants and we had great experiences in both restaurants, Al Qasar and Ocean Grill. We joined the free daily snorkelling trip around its island which was really nice. Anything else good has already been mentioned by other reviewers. This resort is definitely […] worth 5 stars!

The resort is fantastic itself, extremely clean and well preserved. Everything looks new or greatly restored. The great pro is short distance from the airport. On the other hand, this short distance means you may see great ships or planes taking off.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good experience of Maldives for decent price"
The stay at Kurumba was filled with water activities, great food and wonderful live music. A very good value for money experience, the only issues we faced were the planes flying above us and late responsiveness by the staff at times. The sound of the planes too was only on one side of the island (once or twice and hour) and a worthwhile compromise […] to make for the decent fares. The staff needs to be increased though. Veggie food was not a problem at all and was high class from any standard. Live music was outstanding. Highly recommended for a short stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Could not ask for any better. Your own piece of beach to lounge around and do nothing if you like. Water sports and activities on hand. Fantastic choice of eateries from quality all you can eat buffets to higher class restaurants. Do yourself a favour and take your own snorkel gear, the marine life is amazing.

The resort is beautiful and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Buffet restaurant has a wide choice of food and the various al a carte restaurants are excellent. The island is surrounded by shallow warm turquoise water with no waves. The home reef is just beyond the wave breakers and you can walk over there to start amazing snorkeling.
