"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. Resort staff very accommodating and fr […] iendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

A great hotel for a short break in the Maldives. Convenient for the airport with good facilities and dining options.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent snorkeling on the home reef"
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. The […] fishes are varied and reef sharks patrol the reef frequently. These sharks are not aggressive and no hazard. Overall superb experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great if you want to do more than sit on a beach"
Had a great time with very helpful staff. Asked for room 136 or 138 as had learned these were very good. the person checking us in granted my request but told us we would have to wait till the room was ready. We had no problem with this except in doing this he failed to notify us that we had been upgraded to the next category of bungalows. if we had […] known that we would not have had to wait for room 306 and had a better room. Transport to and from the resort was only by speedboat which was expensive. $ 40 or $60 pp for a 10 minute speedboat ride. This was not too bad once for airport transfers but expensive tif you wnated just to go to male for a visit. There were regular staff ferries but guests were not allowed to use these, you had to book a trip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This is not only the oldest resort but also one of the best and best located resort of Maldives. My experience was better than expected and will visit again and recommend others also to visit.

Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Food somewhat limited and monotonous, difficult for people with allergies and food sensitivities (gluten given to my coeliac husband). Lovely surrounds, beautiful snorkelling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Service needs improvement, awesome place....."
The staff service is not highly commendable, needs a lot of improvement. They should learn to be warm, welcoming and smiling. Despite this, we enjoyed our stay because the place is beautiful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A recommended resort in Maldives for honeymoon."
My hubby and I were on a honeymoon and we received exceptional service throughout our stay in kurumba. The resort staffs constantly surprised us with beautiful decorations on our bed, champagne over breakfast, a special decoration made for us when we went to Veli Spa for massage! Staffs were very attentive, friendly and flexible, and acceded to our […] every request to make us comfortable during our stay. On top of that, I must say the coordination between staffs was excellent. It seemed as though the staffs we came across remembered room 116 was on a honeymoon, they even remembered us by our names, and they would congratulate us spontaneously (whether or not we had seen them before). Kurumba Maldives is definitely a resort with exceptional service! Thank you for giving us such a memorable experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"This is one place not to be missed!!"
My husband and I spent two fabulous weeks at the Kurumba for our honeymoon. We specifically chose the resort based on the fact that it had so many different resorts to choose from and it was a short boat ride away from the airport. We were not disappointed. The whole experience was incredible. From someone from reception collecting us from arrivals, […] checking us in and showing us to our room, to checkout and our transfer back to the airport. The staff were all extremely friendly and went out of their way to ensure we were ok in every way. They were always available without being intrusive. The food was AMAZING! Every meal we had was delicious and we could not fault any of the restaurants. We stayed in room 251 - a deluxe beachfront bungalow and it was our little slice of paradise for two weeks. Right on the beach, quiet and with what seemed like our own private beach with sunloungers. The outdoor shower was powerful and very hard to get out of! We did a lot of research before we booked and there were a few comments about the noise from the aeroplanes. I can guarantee you that this is not a problem. The variety of excursions were fabulous. I would totally recommend the dolphin cruise (we probably drank more in champagne than the actual cost of the trip!!) and the sunset fishing cruise. Overall, you will not be disappointed if you booked this resort. The only disappointment you will encounter is having to leave. I don't think the website gives it the justice it deserves!!

hotel is beutiful, location is beutiful and people that work there are nice and helpful and always on hand when neededGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff were not friendly, after reading all the other reviews and being on holidays in seyshelles and mauritius I had high expectations that were not met. Unlike other holiday resorts I've stayed at before where all the staff make you feel welcome and have warm smile. There was only one friendly & approachable staff Ali. We were on our honeymoon […] & were not once congratulated on our marriage. We went on a private game fishing trip, our sparking wine and beer was warm as the hotel had not put the drinks on ice. We also went on a sunset fishing trip where the equipment was rubbish for the price tou pay you would expect to have fishing line that is not knotted and twisted, also the crew on this particular excursion did not speak English.

"Why go anywhere else"
Fantastic - why would you want to go anywhere else in the Maldives? Short transfer, beautiful island, friendly and helpful staff, everything is perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great place nice rooms, good its only 10 minutes from airport as i dont like boats, bad its only 10 minutes from airport vicious circle! it's not a major problem just small inconvenience soon forgotten, the staff were very pleasant always smiling and helpful, there's a good choice of resteruants indian, japanese, chinese, italian, arabian, grill etc... […] thought the buffet dinner at the main resteraunt was way over priced, was much cheaper to dine at the themed ones, good water sports and snorkling and the white sandy beaches. views not overly nice as its close to Male see lot's of ships, boats, sea planes and Male city skyline, but over all we had very pleasent enjoyable stay ideal place for families with young children.

"Relaxation in paradise......"
Kurumba was a fantastic place to stay, the staff couldn't do enough for us and were so friendly, nobody ever walked passed you without a greeting. The rooms were immaculate and we were upgraded to a beach bungalow on arrival which was beautiful. The restaurants were excellent although expensive which is normal for the Maldives. As it was our honeymoon, […] there were somextra perks including a complimentary meal in a restaurant of our choice which was fantastic.It was also the best airport transfer EVER, only 10minutes on a boat! Its not the place to go if you want to be totally remote as you can see Male clearly from one side of the island. This however did not bother us at all as the beach is glorious and we generally sat on the other side with stunning views of the ocean and distant islands. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Trip worth every penny. Amazing food and service. The staff were very helpful and greeted everyone with smile that is one thing money cant buy. Great variety of food from , Indian, Chinese, continental to every international cuisine could not ask for a better place for my honeymoonGenuine Expedia guest review
Just one word to describe the Hotel. "Perfect".Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good service, polite and helpful staff. good food and a magical experience. Resort was thoughtful in terms of its provision eg check out at 12 midday, leave at 8.30pm, but the resort still provided beach towels, access to all facilities plus a fully equipped shower block. Would recommend, although I did feel that one improvement would be access to Male […] - only 10 mins away, but the only option was to take a very expensive tour. We simply wanted to go and look around on our own. At $40 each this was simply not viable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Full Feature hotel"
The hotel is big ,with all the facilities including tennis courts , Unfortunately I was on my honeymoon and would have liked something smaller with fewer people and a boutique charm, and further away from the main island.Having said that the hotel took great care of us. The Service is above par and the staff is very friendly , the hotel also gave us […] a free upgrade to the presidential suite .This is the perfect place for a family vacation.

"Great family vacation"
We had a great stay at Kurumba. Can recommend to book a beach bungalow. From here you have easy access to the house reef, which is in a good state - especially if you cross the break waters, but take note of the strong currents. When we initially came across Kurumba during our vacation planning on the internet, we did have our concerns about the resort's […] close location to Malé and the airport island. However, we did not find the few airplanes disturbing at all, but then again we new that Kurumba was not a remote robinson cruse island. We decided not to go for the all inclusive dining package, but had breakfast included in our accomodation booking. The breakfast buffet was great! Varied, with wonderful omlet, danish pastry and hold on.....the best congee and mango lassi, ever!! Many thanks to Le Chef and keep up the good work ;-) During our 5 day stay we tried different dining options, including the Ocean Restaurant. All gave us good dining experiences, but be prepared to spend a few extra bucks when travelling to the Maldives...it's not cheap! The resort also offered complementary internet access and had a lot of sports facilities and activities - for our kids, the kids club was a great break and offered hours of fun. We can definitely recommend a stay at Kurumba! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent hotel, we would thoroughly recommend it and go back. The food in the theme restaurants is expensive but well worth it. Water, snorkelling equipment, flip flops, wifi internet were all free so this hotel is definately not a rip off. Breakfast was excellent in the main resturant - especially the champagne breakfast on a Sunday! We didn't eat […] the buffet meal for dinner (which would be the HB,FB & AI options), but given the quality of other food at the hotel I'm sure it would be very good if you cannot afford the other restaurants. However, if you can, go BB and try all the theme restaurants - ocean grill, italian, japanese, arabic, indian, chinese etc.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good and bad"
Let me start by saying I had high expectations given the rating and have travelled a lot so my review is against that Benchmark. Its also my first trip to Maldives so I have nothing to compare against there. So overall the hotel is nice, very clean, beach is wonderful, Breakfast is very good and some of the food was good also. The transfers etc were […] well handled, got into the room early on day of arrival which was also good. The room was nice, great position on the beach, the hotel seemed not very full and was quiet and easy to feel as though you were on your own. As per other reviews Maldives is expensive and it was not cheap but not as bad as I was expecting apart from the local watersports and spa. Good friendly service in the spa and watersports center. The negatives. I really didnt expect it to be that close to Male, I know 10 minutes isnt far on a boat but it really was close and the flight path is just past Kurumba. Nothing you can do about that but it is intrusive at times. The other issue is that you get lots of boats passing by and create noise and a slight wake which can disturb snorkelling and peace. If you want a deserted island feel then this isnt for you, but proximity is good for transfer. The worst part was the general service of bar staff, restaurants. It is not 4 star standard. Slow, untrained and grumpy waiters are here. Apologies to a few that were good. The house reef was pretty much bleached or dead which was disappointing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The total rip off"
kurumba hotel which is supposed to be a 5 star luxury resort but the island is really old and in bad condition. The service is the poorest I have ever seen, from never being greeded by the staff to 1h30 to order a salad. It is unbelievable that the staff bearly speaks English. The island has a horrible view of male. The non stop planes and sea planes […] above the island make a horrible noice so it is literally impossible to rest. the quality of the activities is extremely poor not only it is overpriced. The staff is pushy and forces us to buy and have diner at the different restaurants. the food is less than average and the breakfast area looks like an old ugly canteen. The new years eve diner costs more than $500 and it is a buffet! I have never seen this in my life! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worst hotel, location, service ever....."
Several aspects of the hotel are really bad, actually what you can read on the websites are just lies and lies and lies again. 1) Bad location The hotel is just 10 minutes boat away from the airport which makes it very close to Male and the airport. Then aircrafts and seaplanes starts to take off at 6am and woke us up 4 nights in a row until we went […] to the store on the island to buy ear plugs (yes, you got it right, they sell ear plugs on an island which is supposed to be a quiet heaven....) On top of this terrible air traffic, there is a huge sea traffic as we are close to Male, there are boats, ships and even tankers going around the island all day long, yesterday I could count up to 47 boat from my sun bed on the beach. Also kurumba is right in front of Rubbish island and you can see thte smoke from the rubbish getting burned all day long. Last but not least about the location, at night the sky is illuminated by....not the stars but by all the lights coming from Male, rubbish island and the airport.... 2) Service Most of the staff does not speak English and it is very difficult to order something a little bit different from what is on the menu as they don't get what you are asking for. We got charged several times more than what we actually ordered, this happened on the Christmas dinner which was just a 350$ buffet with out wine (for 2). Forget about having lunch a the beach bar as it takes more than 1 hour to get a pizza (which was cold when I finally got it) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
How do I start to describe this beautiful resort, from the moment you get picked up from the airport to when they drop you off was absolute bliss. Went for honeymoon and was not disappointed, the staff were very friendly and courteous, secluded enough for privacy but also there when you need. The reefs were amazing around the island and with wave breakers […] to allow snorkelling in the shallow lagoons even more fun, only 10 mins boat ride from airport and 10/15 mins from Male. Perfect place and would reccomend to anyone, 10 out of 10, very very hapy :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great resort for families"
I would highly recommend Kurumba to families with children. The resort is in close proximity to Male, which means only an 8min boat ride to the island. This has the small drawback of being quite close to airport traffic. However, with small children, it is ideal to be close to the capital (e.g., sudden unexpected illnesses etc). Moreover, given the […] price, it is great value for the Maldives. We had a beautiful bungalow, right on the beach front. Moreover, the snorkelling on this island was out of the world. Some visitors have complained about the sea walls surrounding the island but this has the effect of calming the waters around the island. As a consequence, beginner snorkellers like myself can explore the reefs and the amazing aquatic life around the island with minimal fear of sharks and strong tides. Finally, Kurumba was very welcoming towards our little daughter, making every effort to ensure that we had a comfortable and fuss free stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We love our stay in Kurumba. The hotel exceeded my expectations and they really made our vacation worth while. My only problem was that since the island is near the airport, you will hear the aircrafts flying in & out of Male. Apart from that, we highly recommend everything in Kurumba, from the boat transfer, to the hotel staff, the restaurants, the […] beach, the room and most especially the serenity of the place.

We booked a delux bungalow in kurumba this last October We decided after an Internet search .

We received a free dinner […] as a honey moon gift and wine with fruits the moment we arrived to our room It couldn't been better than that The food was great, the beach and swimming pool as well, we played tennis and worked out at the gym free of charge and really .....

I have travelled loads and I have to say that this was the best holiday ever. It was like visiting paradise. The staff were so helpful and had a can do attitude. The rooms were serviced twice a day. Fruits and soft drinks were handed out for free at the pool. The beach and restaurants never felt full of people, despite the hotel apparently being full […] to capacity. The only thing that I would mention is that the Maldives is very expensive, but I do not think that this is something that was limited to the hotel that we stayed at.

we arrived at 2.30 am and could not have imagined what we would wake up to at Kurumba Maldives. Stayed 4/04 to 9/04,unbelievable. Highly recommend this property for a family or couple stay.

Multiple restaurants served brilliant meals that were not […] overpriced and the breakfast service catered for all tastes.
