    My husband and I stayed here because Tropic Surf is organized out of this resort. It was a trip to celebrate my 40th, and it was wonderful!
    Pros:
    1. Tropic Surf provides the best surf adventure we have ever had the pleasure of experiencing; it is completely first class. Lauren and Matt run the show and they are extremely accommodating, from unpacking and packing our boards to blocking stingy surfers in the line up to facilitate wave catching. No matter wind or swell direction, they are able to find waves for all ability levels. We cannot praise them enough!
    2. The food is excellent! Maldivian night was our favorite. It's actually worth going to the buffets, they are all great, including the breakfast buffet. We really enjoyed the Indian restaurant as well, especially the live music. It added a nice touch.
    3. The service here is so friendly. Every employee goes out of their way to greet you. Everyone seems to genuinely enjoy their job. The upper management is interested in chatting with the guests as well, very approachable.
    4. The overwater room with plunge pool was worth the splurge. The outdoor shower is wonderful. We stayed on the sunrise side. I loved the breeze because it is very hot in the Maldives, but others might find this side too windy. The rooms further out on the jetty may have been nice especially the ones near the man made island because there were more corals in that area. We did see reef sharks, many fish, and a stingray right off our deck (room 403), and this room had a shorter walk to the restaurants.
    5. Although we did not get a chance to use a lot of the water sports because we were surfing, all of the equipment looked new. The water sports staff were very helpful.
    6. The spa island treatments are top notch. We chose to schedule ours in the evening because the treatment rooms do not have air conditioning. However, I think their location would have provided enough breeze for a comfortable experience during the day. The brief trip over to spa island on the dhoni boat adds a special touch.
    7. The adult pool and bar are so great! We do not have kids, and this was a very relaxing area for us.
    Cons:
    1. The snorkeling is really nice out by the coral gardens (where the resort is growing new coral). However, on our side of the jetty, snorkeling from the room would have been unwise due to the current and lack of healthy coral.
    2. This is picky, but I would have preferred a smoother check in and check out process. The reception is not air conditioned and it gets very hot and sticky waiting to complete the paperwork. We went to another resort after this one that has a check in that occurs in your room (no waiting at all), and that was preferable. You know if I'm mentioning this, the resort is fantastic!

    Thank you very much for spending the time to share such a detailed and comprehensive review of your observations and experiences on Kuda Huraa. Indeed Matt and Lauren are true professionals and Tropic Surf has embraced our Four Seasons culture of engaging with our guest ...from start to finish. Your comments in regards to air conditioning is a very interesting discussion in trying to achieve a "natural" and "comfortable" environment and the in-room check in is an option that deserves serious consideration. Thank you and we hope to see you again in the not-so-distant future.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to highlight our little island we call Kuda Huraa. In this day and age of re-charging all of our "devices" we sometimes forget to re-charge the most important one of all, ourselves. We are delighted to hear that in some small way, we were able to help you achieve this during your visit to us.

    As a travel writer I do know what 5 stars resorts should be like. And I must admit that FS at Kuda Huraa is just a perfect resort! This small island got everything to provide unforgettable holiday experience! Even a surfing school is here! Our water villa was so huge, had two spacious sundecks and a big glass wall in the bedroom. Very well packed water sport center (try sea bob - it's fun!) and three VERY good restaurants. And my SPA experience was unforgettable - two minutes by beautiful dhoni boat and amazing Balinese massage - it was heaven!

    Room Tip: Chose a water villa:))

    Thank you very much for taking the time to share your comments. Indeed we consider Kuda Huraa a small island that has something for everyone. Also the two minute dhoni ride to the Spa Island only serves to enhance the anticipation of the sensory journey one is about to experience on that exclusive island.

    We stayed for 7 nights for our honeymoon. We were impressed from the beginning - the transfer boat had Wi-Fi access and there was a welcome party waiting for us when we arrived on the island. The staff gave us a very welcoming feel throughout our stay. Service is excellent.

    We were originally concerned when a friend told us that the resort is a little old compared to the others, but we found the property very well maintained and were very satisfied with the quality of our rooms. The room still feels new.

    The food was good in general. There are enough restaurants to choose from and special events like Lobster Night and Asian Night to keep things interesting. We particularly like the Reef Club and its calamari.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail in the turn down service, especially on the first night. Each side table had a bottle of water and a glass, and the TV remote was placed next to the bed. The alarm clock and TV was tilted for easy viewing. We were surprised that the staff had neatly arranged our own toiletries in the bathroom.

    There are a lot of things to keep you occupied. The beach on the side of the main swimming pool has an amazing reef for snorkeling. The recreation centre provides the snorkeling equipment for the duration of your stay for free. I was surprised that they had prescription snorkeling masks available; I would not have enjoyed the water activities without it. There is also a 24-hour gym that provides all the gear you need; there is no need to bring your own.

    I did not intend to dive originally. The professionalism of the dive centre made me change my mind and I ended up doing the Discover Scuba Diving Course and a second supervised dive. My wife did 3 dives. It was a luxurious diving experience - the crew helped us put on our equipment and served us fruits and refreshments after our dive. I strongly recommend the dive centre to everyone.

    As I happen to spend my birthday at the resort, my wife arranged for a birthday surprise in the room for me with the help of the housekeeping team. We happened to return to our room while they were decorating the room, so they took us to another room under the pretense of 'maintenance work', which was nice.

    We had planned to celebrate my birthday with a private dinner at the beach. Regrettably, we both fell ill at the worst possible time and had to cancel it. They have a doctor on the island who attended to us and regularly checked on us for the remainder of our stay.

    While we were sick, the kitchen staff prepared light meals and sent to our room, which we appreciated. And when we got better, the team suggested and arranged a special dinner for us in a quiet corner of Café Huraa, which we enjoyed.

    Overall, we are extremely pleased with our stay and hope to visit again. We highly recommend this place to everyone, and especially to couples looking for a romantic getaway. Thanks for the wonderful experience!

    Thank you very much for taking the time to talk to us about your recent experience on Kuda Huraa. We appreciate your comments about our focus on keeping our resort well maintained and fresh. What also is gratifying is when stories about our recreation and dive team are related to us given that some individuals who are uncomfortable in the water becoming more comfortable due to the patience, support and guidance of our staff. The truly amazing marine life that surrounds us here on our island, lagoon and house reef really should be enjoyed by all.

    We stayed at this resort for 4 nights in the beach villa also because it has a wonderful kids center.. although our son was 6 months old then we still had a superb time and would recommend families with kids. We also took part in a conservation program that was great as we felt like we gave something back... The rooms are large and the plunge pool more than big enough to have a lie in and relax. On arrival we were greeted with champagne as it was my birthday and had our pictures taken. check in was a breeze and when we reached our room we were even more surprised! They had a cake, another bottle of Champagne, some baby food and drink for our infant and a cot with nappies, suntan, swim nappies, toys and the cot cover in blue as he's a boy.. who could as for more! they have amazing reef sharks and sting ray feeding and we watched them come up right on the shore!
    It was truly a great stay!

    Thank you very much for taking the time to write and share. We also must acknowledge your contribution to the coral reef propagation program which is indeed very generous and considerate of you. Indeed those reef sharks coming in for feeding at sunset so close to shore is a spectacle not to be missed.
