This large island seamlessly combines laid-back Maldivian life with an extensive choice of facilities.

Kuramathi is one of the Maldives’ most popular resorts and it's perfect if you're looking for variety alongside relaxation. Here, pathways weave through lush foliage, leading to the excellent facilities that are dotted around this large island. There are two oceanfront infinity pools plus a freshwater pool shaded by palm trees, and snorkelling on the house reef is possible straight from the beach.

For dining, you’ll be allocated a buffet restaurant determined by the location of your villa. We recommend upgrading to Select All Inclusive for the full choice of à la carte restaurants – including the popular Island Barbecue on the beach, Siam Garden serving up authentic Thai dishes, and fine dining at Duniye in the verdant heart of the island. Of the bars, favourites include the Sand Bar, where you can sink into a comfy beanbag with a cocktail and bury your toes in the sand, and the chic Champagne Loft.

Rooms on the island range from simply designed Garden Villas and Beach Villas nestled in abundant vegetation (but just a short walk from the beach) to Deluxe Beach Villas that face the lagoon and luxury Pool Villas that sit right at the edge of the beach. Two Bedroom Beach Houses sleep six; ideal for families or friends travelling together. For the iconic overwater experience, opt for a Deluxe Water Villa perched above the turquoise lagoon
