Stayed for 2 wk in a 2 bedroom beach apartment. Basic all inclusive was excellent, with a different theme each night. We was allocated to the farivalhu restaurant, the head chef couldn’t do enough- excellent!! Kids club should add to web site that there are limitations with family being present within the centre.
Great experience on Kuramathi.
We had a very nice time on Kuramathi in March 2020. The food was delicious, the room great and I would like to give special thanks to the manager Rasheed. He helped us a lot when we had to change our travel plans and arranged everything for us, he and the whole Kuramathi hotel team made our stay unforgettable! Definitely will come back.
Heaven on Earth
Kuramathi is the most wonderful place I have ever been to! Everything is amazing, so so incredibly beautiful, just unbelievable! Wherever you go, it's like a postcard everywhere around you. The people are absolutely wonderful, especially everyone from Malaafaiy restaurant! It's a Paradise and I can't wait to go back someday!
Absolutely loved our holiday to Kuramathi island. From the amazing restaurants to the beautiful white sand beach with azure blue ocean. Food; plentiful, our favourites were the Japanese, Reef and the Beach Bbq, however none of the others disappointed either. Drink; cocktails galore and we enjoyed a glass or two of cava in the champagne loft watching the sun set, they give you half a glass but if you ask for two measures you get a glass full! The select all inclusive is best as otherwise it’s very expensive. Lunch in the Palm is a lovely change from the buffet and a real treat if you finish with the amazing ice creams (no need to book at lunchtime). Room; we had room 228, spot on with a good size beach in front with only a few fellow sunbathers, other areas of the island were rather cramped with sun beds, we were on the calmer lagoon side, ideal for practicing snorkelling before heading out to the reef. Trip; turtle reef, you need to be a reasonably competent swimmer for the boat trip but you can wear a life vest if you are less confident, we booked the trip which stated there was a 90% chance of seeing turtles, when we got on the boat the guide said there was a 50% chance, we saw one which was fabulous but be prepared for none, the fish were plentiful though. Spa; we enjoyed the couples outside Swedish massage, this came with a free facial each, the whole experience was wonderful and worth the expense. Ask for your massages outside over the sea and before it’s dark, it’s stunning. Staff; they are wonderful and can’t do enough for you, always smiling. Sea plane; we took the plane just for the arrival, sadly we sat on the wrong side so didn’t get a great look of the island from above, so sit on the right and get your camera ready! The island is quite large and it took us a few days to figure out where everything was (even with a map), the buggies are very handy, simply jump on and shout to the driver where you want to go and if it’s your villa just shout out the number, even when everyone shouts lots of different numbers they manage to remember them all! Sand bank; out of this world, take a walk and along the way look for the sea life, we saw a manta ray, it was close enough to touch (we didn’t). Tennis; not a great court, not really playable, in need of repair. Kuramathi is ideal for a first trip to the Maldives, it has a bit of everything for everyone.
A big shout-out for Ali Wahib who kept our accommodation on Kuramathi (Room 314) immaculate. Ali is a wholly supportive man and constantly shows remarkable attention to detail. His decorations and constructions for our 4-year old daughter were magical and made us all very happy.
