This place is a paradise. Amazing. Staff is very friendly, the houses are very clean, food is amazing. The waters are so clear and riffs are beautiful. It’s perfect for snorkeling, we’ve spotted turtles, sharks, colorful fishes and corals and it’s just few steps of your bungalow. There are so many things to do at the island, I couldn’t get enough for a week. Next time I will stay 2 or 3 weeks. Absolutely love it!
Great stays and diving at Kuredu
We have stayed two times at Kuredu and enjoyed it a lot. It is the true barefeet maledivian resort. Service is great, food is good, the atmosphere is relaxed and there is a lot of space. We like the island is a bit bigger than the majority of the islands, so you can get around a bit if you stay longer. Prodivers is a very professional dive outfit, both for course (our teenage kids) and more advanced diving (oursvelves). The diving around Kuredu is pretty good; and the scooter diving in the channels, is absolutely to be recommended if you are a more experienced diver looking for the the bigger fish and a bit of a thrill. The day trip to noon atoll and the shark cleaning station is really worth it . Snorkeling for turtles in the lagoon is great for kids / teenagers - the island is known to attract a lot of turtles. The shark and ray nursery on the outer side of the island is interesting and nice. We would just urge the resort no longer to blow up sand and coral rubble in the lagoon to get more turquoise waters for better pictures. It is detrimental to the lagoon, fish life, and the house reef, and . So stop doing it, you have a nice island, it is really a pity, protect the environment ! We hope to be back.
Simply the most amazing place I have ever visited. Stayed in the closest garden villa to the beach - basic but who sleeps in a place like this! Food is unbelievable. Clean & hygienic full of flavour. Different themes everyday. Chefs and waiting staff are the most friendliest people I have met. We went full board so drink are expensive, so if your not a drinker then makes no sense to pay a huge amount extra for AI. The island is beautiful, truly wonderful. Lots of things to do and see. Turtles feeding and baby reef sharks is awesome in the day. Evening at the end of the peer you can watch the big boy sharks feeding on small fish.... Amazing!! White party is a good ‘ol rave. All in all I would highly recommend Kuredu and we can’t wait to go back to visit.
ANOTHER WONDERFUL VISIT.
Our 7th trip this year to Kuredu was wonderful. We met up with familiar faces of staff members who welcomed us back. We were pleased with our room allocation in a beach villa at the O resort & settled in straight away, ‘home from home’ as they say. The staff on the reception were always helpful with any requests, thank you. As the island is large, there are buggy’s to ferry you from area to area if you don’t want to walk, we especially enjoyed our chats with our friends Toujan & Alvin. Thank you both for a great service with added value! As we have returned more than 5 times, we are able to eat in any of the restaurants in the 3 resorts & use any of the bars so it is difficult to remember all the names of staff to say thank you to, but all gave good, efficient service with a smile. In the O restaurant it was nice to see familiar faces, Rahim one of the chefs & Nasith who was our waiter this time & has been on a previous visit. He was good at remembering what we liked to drink & was efficient. All the staff work as a team & do a fantastic job. Thank you to all. It was nice to see our ‘old friend’ Rahman in Sangu restaurant, still tripping around between tables, the bar & the kitchen – he was our first waiter in 2005 & we look out for him every visit! The food is varied, of a high standard & beautifully presented. The themed nights ensure a great range of dishes are available & we particularly enjoy the homemade soups. Food allergies or intolerances are catered for too. I would appreciate a hot plate dispenser as a way of keeping our food hot for longer. The weather was hot 32*C & sunny, but there was a strong wind most of the time coming from the East which restricted snorkelling on the house reef & even in the lagoon. We saw turtles, shark, a huge sting ray, ‘puffa fish’ & many of the ‘usual’ fish of all shapes & sizes in the lagoon & the sea grass area by Sangu pool. This island does not have easy reef snorkelling for beginners but the lagoon & non windy side are very calm & good for nervous snorkellers. The sunset cruises are great, this time we saw lots of dolphins, even ones spinning in the air & the staff allowed us to stay out for longer while they were there. Few people look at the sunset! Book a few days ahead & don't leave it until the end of your holiday in case the weather prevents the boats going out. Check out the sunsets on the spit too. The music nights down at the main area are great – a retro night & the ‘white’ night. Lots of coloured lights & lasers lighting up the palms around the pool & at the back of the beach. Previously, the music & dancing has been indoors, but this year it was outside which was a lot better feeling the cool breeze from the beach while dancing & drinking. There is also a resident band who go round the different areas over the week & a dive school night as well as ‘chill out’ nights to give variety. The guest band – Aquatic Vibe were brilliant, hope they will still be there next year. We have re booked to return next year, many people have returned 10, 15, 20 times. There is such variety to this island that you don’t get bored! Since returning, there has been the Corona Virus outbreak which has affected everywhere, we hope all on Kuredu remain well & keep safe. Our thoughts are with you all. John & Lynn
Had a great stay at Kuredu. We stayed in the O villas which were lovely. Especially loved our open air bathroom. All members of the staff at Kuredu from wait staff, to check in staff to retail associates were all very helpful. Our dining room waiter - Shaleef (spelling is probably wrong) and Manju the bartender took good care of us. When we booked the hotel we were a bit concerned that with so many rooms on the island we'd feel cramped and would be bumping into people everywhere but that was not the case. Also one night we went to 5.8 the underwater restaurant at one of their sister hotels. What a fun experience. Thanks again to everyone for making this a great trip.
