Amazing honeymoon trip
A big shout out to Kurumba staff for awesome hospitality . I am a vegetarian Indian and Chef Viji and Chef Nanda need to be specialy mentioned for making amazing vegetarian dishes. The chef's were so nice that they would instantly make vegetarian dishes for us when the buffet had less veg options. The resort was clean and clear with crystal clear water at beaches. Awesome and memorable trip.
This was our very first trip to the Maldives and with so many islands we were unsure of which to choose. The island of Kurumba is the closest to the airport. So when you pick up your bags it’s across the road for the boat transfer (which is included in the price). Then 15 minutes and you arrive onto this beautiful island surrounded by turquoise seas. We got the half board deal and it was plenty. The food is buffet style and was fantastic with lots of choice. The staff too were so friendly and helpful. I’d like to mention Hassan the dining room manager who was particularly kind and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and there was plenty to do other than sunbathe. We took out the kayaks each morning to explore. The island is lush with plants and wildlife which I particularly liked, although take your mosquito deterrent for the evenings! This holiday was a real get away from it all experience and we loved it. I would highly recommend Kurumba.
Best place to relax for kids and their parents
I don’t want to write about great location of Kurumba, about excellent food and most comfortable room we ever had in Family Villa... I want to tell about atmosphere of complete comfort and relax which envelopes you right after getting to that island. We met a lot of families who come to Kurumba for years! There is not enough space for our gratitude to everyone who participated in organizing of our vacation. Asiya, Tatiana, Hasan Ibrahim, Acter, Ibrahim from reservation, chief cooks, the personal in Tiila and main restaurant, Kids club girls, cleaning service and gardeners... everyone! The General wizard of Kurumba Andrew, beautiful boss of Spa Elveera, Miho Koike from front office... Miho, who organized fast nipple delivery for our infant baby, who brought new glasses by medical receipt instead of the lost ones, who took our 7 years old daughter to kayaking in her day off... People, we will come back to you and to your lovely island! Thank you!!! Truly yours, Mark, Eva, Alice, Elya and Alexander
Kurumba with my little baby
we are a small family , me , my wife and 5 months infant were so stressed to travel during pandemic with the baby, however, we insisted to have a holiday after long home stay. I can loudly say that we made the correct choice going to Kurumba. Kurumba team lead by their GM Andrew ensured a smooth, peaceful Holiday. Room : We had the beachfront bungalow which was amazing for us and the baby since we were directly on the shore, crystal ocean water with soft white sands is amazing specially for relaxation and chilling , ocean water temprature was perfect for the baby to have his first swim steps. Food: Food is amazing in kurumba and i would certainly have to thank Hassan the F&B manager who ensured that food quality and our F&B experience during the whole stay is up to perfection. It was our anniversary and I ordered a cake which was freshly made based on our preferences that he has taken prior, he is absolutely details oriented. (Tell this man anything you think about in food and he will have it done) I would also suggest to go for the all inclusive meal plan as their are lots of good restaurants that you can enjoy but i would definetly recommend hamakaze japanese restaurant their food is really incredible thanks to the perfect two chefs robert and ronando. Health care: One of the good things at kurumba is that they have a clinic even before pandemic so we were sure that the little one is safe just in case of any unfortunate sitiuation. Spa: The massage experience was great and the Spa team were very friendly and happy to play with the baby. Photos : photos are very important for memories so i would recommend to book a small photo session so you can make sure the whole family is pictured together. (P.S. Kurumba photographers know how you should be pictured in Maldives) Activities : We didn't do much activities though as not everything will be possible with the baby, and we were just happy lying down the palm trees and ocean chillin'. Baby care: Kurumba were happy to provide beach strollers , bottle sterilizer and baby crib ( you need to request that before you arrive, just send an email) Kurumba is also so near to airport so we weren't worried that the baby will stay in speedboat for long time which may not be very comfortable for him. Hospitality : Finally these ppl hospitality is really perfect they seriously happy that you are there and they love to see you smile. Go to Kurumba.
I really recommend Kurumba resort. Me and my friends had an incredible week at Kurumba resort in the beginning of March`21. Everything about Kurumba is incredible: from the beautiful beaches with a lovely house reef, the variety of restaurants offering delicious food and excellent service to the great and friendly staff. Special thanks to the friendly bartender Priyankara.
