Kurumba offers luxury at great value, with a convenient location and superb hospitality.
Kurumba was the very first Maldivian resort to open its ‘doors’, back in 1972. Its history and traditional style are evident but this compact village-like island also offers a host of more contemporary facilities.
The choice of dining is superb – there’s a restaurant for every night of the week with a poolside café to spare. And the quality is excellent. It begins with the main restaurant, Vihamanaa, which serves up buffet dishes from hearty Italian to fiery curries. Of the seven speciality restaurants, Italian fine dining is perfectly executed at Isola, while Al Qasr (‘the Palace’) lives up to its name with decadent surrounds and delicious Middle Eastern flavours. And then there’s Thila, which extends out over the water – this is the gourmet breakfast venue for higher room types and a great spot for seafood dinners.
Snorkelling on the house reef is just steps from the beach and diving packages are available to pre-book. Rooms sit in clusters around the network of paths, with traditional exteriors and more modern furnishings. Superior Rooms are in two-storey buildings with views of the coconut groves. For direct beach views, opt for a Beachfront Deluxe Bungalow. There’s also a range of spacious villas with private pools, ideal for a more secluded stay.
