“awesome”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

we had selected this resort based on my tripadvisor search and so we were expecting it to be good but nothing prepared us for the awesome experience !!
Right from the reception at the airport till the day we left, it was a memorable time for us.
The people at Kurumba - made all the difference. They were always so helpful, so polite and so friendly. We felt loved and cared for 24 x 7. There was nothing they could not accomplish for us.
The property itself was very neat, clean and classy.
The cottage (we stayed at the beachfront deluxe bungalow) was so well annointed and thoughtfuly furnished. Excellent !!
The champagne breakfast at the ocean grill every morning used to set the trend for the day. The team there was fabulous and friendly.
During our 4 days there, we dined at the Chinese, arabic, Indian restaurant and the Kurumba cafe. The ming's court was very good.
The snorkeling was awesome and we snorkeled in every area we were allowed to.
The sunset bar and Jazz was very nice. We loved the sunset cruise and dolphin cruise.
Highly recommend this place for the whole family. Would most definitely visit again.

Room Tip: you might as well stay in the beachfront baungalows for the fantastic access to beach and the view.

We stayed there for 4 nights and it was a wonderful stay. It's a beautiful little island with all the amenities on it. The staff is nice and humble. The check-out process was a little disappointing but apart from this, everything went very well.

Sadly we spent most of our week in rain due to an unexpected monsoon close by. When there is little else on an island to do but sit in the sun, bathing, eating and drinking then its a little bit of a bummer when you had the week we did. In a way we were glad to be close to the airport and Mali as at least you saw some activity. Kurumba was an excellent hotel and the staff we brilliant. Friendly helpful and provided an excellent service. We were lucky to get the deluxe room 241 as it was right on the beach with an excellent view and great snorkling opportunities. Sun beds are allocated to the rooms by numbers which is a little frustrating as you either sit where you are put or you have to work out which sunbeds are free. The pool at times was noisy with children. A system identifying empty beds would assist. Taking soap, shampoo etc is a waste of time as we took back more or less what we took. It wasn't that we didn't wash it was that the hotel provided plenty and it was good quality. Taking an outside shower was a novelty and achieved without any unwelcomed pets even better. Food in the hotel was excellent and varied and I struggle to understand how anyone can complain about it. We had the all inclusive package that meant you had 3 meals a day in the buffet restaurant and drinks included all day. The dine around package gives you access to the variety of restaurants on the island but Im not too sure whether this is worth the additional cost. We had a meal at the Japanese restaurant which we had to pay 50% of the bill which was around £60 on top. If you like lobster/prawns/shushi then go but otherwise I do not see the point of the additional expense. I have eaten better. We left late in the evening and the hotel gave us a room (free of charge) for the day which I felt was kind. It gave us the opportunity of looking at the rooms that were the next step up from ours. It was very large nice that the bed faced the sea but I liked the location of 241 much better. Overall all we enjoyed our stay at the Kurumba but having then moved to the Fairmount, Dubai we are more likely to return to Dubai in the future rather than the Maldives.

Room Tip: In the region of 241

We decided to go to Kurumba for some days in December 2013, during the Xmas holidays. We knew everything would be beautiful, after all its the Maldives! However, after arriving at the island resort, we were extremely pleased with everything. We booked a superior room which was upgraded to a beachfront deluxe bungalow (a perfect surprise). Another greatly helpful thing, was that even though we arrived around 10 a.m, we could go in our room almost immediately (normally check in is after noon). The staff was amazing, everything was clean and organised. The wifi is strong everywhere, the cafes, bars and restaurants serve all kind of delicious food. Bottom line, heaven on earth! Highly recommended!

This was out first time in Kurumba and we came with our two year old son. I can only say thar we are already thinking of when we will be back! The place is heaven! The staff are great and everything is clean and taken care of. The spa is also really good and so are the activities. Its a place where kids and adults can have a blast! As others say the planes do fly close by but this is a minor disturbance as you are in constant relaxation at Kurumba.

A lovely place 15 minutes - speedboat from Male airport.
Despite the nearby airport and planes over the head, Kurumba
gives you emotions and feelings you never forget.
A real 5 stars hotel with free wifi,
wonderful bungalows and villas, very good food, magical atmosphere at the Ocean Grill restaurant.
I recommend the full board because the restaurants are a little bit expensive.
A place to recommend to anyone who wants comfort and beautiful blue sea with reef on your doorstep, just a short distance from Male.

Excellent stay at Kurumba. One word to describe this island. Beautiful! Truly a hidden gem on earth. Spotless rooms and hard to spot. Rooms are beautifully furnished. Staff at the hotel are friendly. Love their balcony. Will definitely return.
