My husband and I stayed in the Maldives for our Honeymoon in Sept 2011 on Kuramathi. It was totally amazing! The sand dunes at the top if the island are so beautiful it will make you want to cry, the room was absolutely perfect and the FOOD.... Well what can I say.... The food is wonderful! The BBQ restaurant is fantastic... Best steak I ever had. The drinks menu was extensive and one of the best All Inc offers we've seen. We would definitely recommend upgrading to All Inc A la Carte, it's worth every penny. Beautiful place to spend our honeymoon and we'll treasure the memories forever.

We went to Kuramathi resort for our honeymoon in June 2014.
We booked our whole trip through a small travel agency specialized in made to measure trips call BlueBay which was excellent.
They booked the whole thing with Kuoni which included the flights and hotel etc.
We chose the best villa on the island called the Honeymoon Villa. It is about 300sq/m with a private garden, private swimming pool etc...
We also got the a la carte all inclusive package so all the food and drinks were included even in the restaurants.
The island itself is absolutely beautiful, perfectly kept like a luxuriant botanical garden.
There are about 5 restaurants (in addition to the buffets) on the island and all were extremely high quality. Our favorite was the Dunye which was fine french dining. The service was perfect and food amazing.
We decided to book a snorkeling session at the excusion center for an our. The team that took care of us was very well trained and made us feel very safe, even when we swam with sharks!
We also took a couple's massage which took place on a jetty above the sea. Before the massage you have access to the whole spa facilities, with steamroom, sauna, cold pools etc. After the one hour massage we got offered a glass of Mimossa and fresh fruits and stayed on a private balcony over the sea.
I would highly recommand this hotel and would go back anyday.
This was an amazing experience, one of the most beautiful place on earth I have ever been.

Room Tip: Honeymoon villa was perfect, central on the island, cleaned twice a day (they even prepare your bed before night time), and the private swimming pool was definitely the cherry on the cake ...

We have just returned from our perfect honeymoon (which included a short stayThe Atlantis Palm in Dubai, would also recommend) at the Kuramathi Island Resort. We stayed for 7 nights.

For travel to the island itself we opted for a mixture of the sea plane (on the way there) and a speedboat (when departing). This seemed like common practice although I think most people did it the other way round. Either way it didn't bother us. From the beginning of our journey, we were greeted by a pleasant atmosphere whilst waiting for our sea plane. The views towards the island were beautifil as you were able to see many of the other beautifil islands during the flyover.

We stayed in a superior beach villa with a jacuzzi which we adored. Lots of privacy with your own private garden which has an outdoor shower & of course the jacuzzi, as well as a proper double sunbed etc. Out the front, you step out, just over the pathway, to your own beach front space with sunbeds. The rooms were kept extremely clean and the minibar topped up - we noticed people were in at least twice a day cleaning which was a pleasant surprise.

In terms of cleanliness, this resort is amazing. We constantly witnessed staff cleaning and tidying around the island. We were extremely impressed at the dedication put into keeping the island in impeccable order.

The island is a perfect mix of relaxation and activity. There is a watersports and dive centre and you can also hire snorkel equipment for your stay. If you don't do anything else, the snorkelling is a must - there is lots to see, even if you don't go too far out. We saw reef sharks, stingrays and many beautifully coloured fish. Others also saw turtles. Also, make sure you go and see the stingray feeding which happens at The Lagoon bar every evening at 6:30.

Make sure you take a walk around the island, particularly up to the sandbank at the far end which is absolutely stunning. My husband and I booked a couples massage at the spa with private bubble bath afterwards during which we were served sparkling wine and fresh fruit - would definately recommend this special treatment. The massage itself took place in a room overlooking the sea which was gorgeous.

The food = EXCELLENT. My husband is a particularly fussy eater and he loved every meal ... trust me this says something about the food. We were on the select all inclusive package (deffo recommend) which offered us a main restuarant (ours was Malaafaiy but there were 2 others depending on where you were on the island) to eat all our meals but also could book any of the al la carte restuarants which you do need to book (you can book up to 3 nights in advance). We ate at the Island BBQ (you must try the Steak Diane - they cook it in front of you & it is delicious), The Palm, Tandoor Mahal and Siam Garden - all were exquisite. The bars were also brilliant with various things going on across the island each evening.

Lastly but certainly not least, the staff were some of the best ever we have come across whilst on holiday. They couldn't do enough for you, and we also found that whilst walking around the island whoever you walked passed would always say hello setting a lovely atmosphere for your holiday. It's a simple thing but impressive.

We spoke to a number of people who have been to various other Maldivian islands and every single one said the Kuramathi was there favourtie to date. We would certainly highly recommend it and look forward to returning one day.

We are regular travellers to the maldives so when looking for a honeymoon destination last year we were down two resorts this one and lily beach, a great guy at bluebay travel sold us on this one and i am so glad he did.

It was a mix of sand and vegetation beauty, fantastic to walk around as it's big enough and the sandbank clearly breathtaking. Because there were so many areas to chill out you simply could never get bored.

The restaurants I know many have said but simply amazing the best steak my husband has ever eaten and he does eat a lot! And the Cesar salad to die for, such amazing service.

We did some great trips the deserted island, the school, the next resort and hired a speedboat for a few hours.

The staff are simply fantastic all so friendly and always happy to help, well done and thank you.

Here is the but alas this was all last year in June. Started looking for a holiday this year and nothing really compares

So ......... We started researching and spoke to bluebay and guess what a great deal and we are coming back in 3weeks yippee only to a beach villa ( last year was a wiv) but to be honest it will be nice to try something different

So happy days we are coming back to re live our dream holiday all over again
