“My husband and i have just returned from Kerudu island...”

Written on: 02/09/2009

My husband and i have just returned from Kerudu island Resort, Lhaviyani Atollafter spending 12 whole days on the island celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We just can not find anything to moan about, we were completly looked after from the time we arrived till the time we returned. Apon our arrival they allocated us a free upgrade from a beech bungalow to a beach villa on the O`resort. We did not even ask for that which was nice of them. I have to say not the best part of the island… Read Full Review

I can not praise this Island enough, loved it. husband and I went to Kuredu Island Resort, Lhaviyani Atoll in November 2008 cos it is one of the islands that would marry us underwater in a scuba diving wedding. But to our surprise the rest of the island was the best place in the world Flight was yuk, kids screaming and crying and the parents doing nothing to control them, they should have designated seating are on planes for families with small babies and young children.

Just back from the Kuredu Island Resort which was a big dissapointment, hardly anything can take away from the sheer beauty of the island, the sea's the wildlife etc but this hotel do their best to try....

It was purely down to the hotel that the holiday was slightly spoiled - these guys bring a new definitition of trying to make a fast buck !!We went all inclusive gold, but still found a constant stream of waiters telling us "sorry sir that isent included" if you want your water in a bottle… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/07/2009

I and my wife are just back from our honeymoon in Kuredu and I have been reading these reviews since I booked and feel we should give our view now.
We stayed in the O' villas for 2 weeks on the all inclusive option. (All inclusive is needed as a spirit and mixer will cost $12.50)

Our flight out with Monarch was a lot of hazel, we wanted to upgrade to premier as it was our honeymoon and where unable to do this before hand with direct holidays (Not good at all, will not book with again). When we… Read Full Review

We took an excursion to our own dream island while we there, it was nothing but sand without and trees or grass and it was just two of us there for the morning, a worth while experience and a beautiful island. Two sun lougers, towels, umbrella, lunch and a big ice box filled with cold soft drinks was included in the price and also two huge flasks of tea and coffee!
This excursion cost $160 for the two of us, which at the time worked out around £100- £110 so I thought it was… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2008 by Christina Hall (1 review written)

Gorgeous, beautiful little island. Excellent house reef for divers, excellent snorkeling facilities. Beach bungalows are lovely and we felt no reason to upgrade to a water villa. If you want to relax and play enjoy the fishes, baby sharks etc swimming outside your beach bungalow this is the ideal place for you.
Visit before it's too late and the Maldives are under the sea! There is not much to buy on the island, only one little shop but we did not go to Kuredu Island for shopping we went for… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2008 by ajwaller137 (1 review written)

We had a beach villa, which was great, air-con, half open air bathroom, 20 metres from the sea.
The food was good, plenty of choice for all meals. We ate at one of the a la carte restaurants. Its nice to go somewhere different and it wasn't too much more money but I wouldn't recommend it unless you are a big fan of the type of food they serve (there's an Italian, seafood and Thai restaurant).
Would thoroughly recommend Kuredu to anyone and everyone. It was our honeymoon and we'll never forget… Read Full Review

Hi there , I am heading to Kuredu in August, also to a beach villa. I notive from the map that there are two stretches of beach villa, one south of the watersports area and one north of it. Which part would you recommend if you had a choice for better beach, more peaceful etc? are there any specific number that are better, or any to avoid? Many thanks

Written on: 24/08/2007 by Chillers (1 review written)

We spent our honeymoon on Kuredu Island Resort and arrived on the 18th December, staying until New Years day.
We arrived in the middle of a storm which was quite exciting - the sea plane had to land a long way from the island and taxi across the water to the jetty. We learnt that we were the last plane that they allowed to land that day.
We got very wet on our way to our bungalow, and our suitcases did not arrive until the evening so we ended up having to stay in the room with our robes… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2007 by Rattu (1 review written)

From the moment we got to Male we knew we were in paradise. As this was our honeymoon, the staff on Kuredu tried extra hard to make it special for us. The seaplane transfer is a must and you should not miss out on the opportunity to see the beauty from above. Once we got to the Island we were given a cold towel and ice-cold drinks, which was perfect. Once checked in, we went to our Jacuzzi Beach Villa and we were totally in love with the room and the Jacuzzi area. The setting in the room is… Read Full Review

My partner and I are also going to Kuredu for our honeymoon in March next year, so it is very reassuring to get such positive feedback from people who have been there the same time of year we will be going. Again, because it will be our honeymoon we naturally want it to be magical and something we will remember forever.

Written on: 16/04/2008

Good comments - Kuredu is fabulous, especially Sanghu end of the island (though it's all nice). We were lucky enough to have a Water Villa which was fantastic, but the Jacuzzi idea seems great too.
Try the snorkelling if you can - you can hire the stuff there. The stuff you can see is amazing and the sea is so warm anyway, you would be missing out if you didn't.
I would go every year if I could...

We stayed at the Kuredu Resort between Tuesday 12th December and Thursday 21st December in a Sangu Jacuzzi Beach Villa, for 9 nights.
we booked our honeymoon with Kuoni, and I can only praise them and would certainly book with them again. The rep at the resort was excellent, very informative and sorted out any queries quickly and was not a pushy sales woman.
we flew direct from Heathrow with Sri Lankan Airways, airline were superb and would strongly recommend them. It took approximately 10… Read Full Review

Terrible shame the weather conspired against you, which will always make a holiday feel 'bad'. Especially so on honeymoon. I (or rather we) were one of the lucky couples to have two of the weeks in late June 06 where the weather was great, and we were in a Sangu water hut. But to be honest, it appears the only difference was the weather. Apart from that most of your review suggests everything was pretty good. I'd agree with that, but of course good weather will make it just that more enjoyable. I guess my point is - good or bad - the weather makes a subjective review of a holiday quite difficult.

Written on: 06/12/2006 by Lucy100 (1 review written)

I felt I had to write a review because no one has mentioned about taking children to Kuredu. Having travelled the world in my younger days and never making it to the Maldvies we went last Christmas and New Year, taking my 8 year old son. What a fantastic trip. We flew direct to Male with First Choice and a sea-plane transfer was like something out of James Bond. This was included in our price but would definitely be worth paying extra for. Having flown over most of the islands, as Kuredu is one… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2006 by david mcentee (1 review written)

My wife and I travelled to Kuredu for our honeymoon. It was a dream come true for us as we had always wanted to go to the Maldives. Before we left I took the time to read some of the reviews on this site and most of the ones I read were fantastic and filled me with confidence, however there were a couple of bad ones which got me thinking. Well now that I have been there and seen it for myself all I can say about the bad ones is that the people that have written them either had an extremely rare… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2006 by agarforth (2 reviews written)

We stayed at the Kuredu Island Resort in the Maldives for a week, and we were not sad to leave. The resort skimped on essentials and tried to make a quick buck wherever it could.

For an all-inclusive package we were charged for water, cocktails, ice creams, soap for washing hands, and we were charged $48 for the use of a cot. We even had to pay $41 for an umbrella in the shop for the 1 day it rained. Refills for the tea and coffee in the room were also chargeable.

The drinking glasses in… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/08/2006 by daggster (1 review written)

We visited Kuredu Island Resort in the Maldives from 30th July to 14th August for our Honeymoon. A week before we left I visited the Review Centre website and was disheartened to read not one, but several bad reviews of the resort. Whereas I fully understand that this was our 1st visit to the Maldives, so therefore have nothing to compare it to, I feel I must jump to its defence, regardless of the fact that others feel there are better resorts to visit.

I can honestly say that from start to… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2006 by fivdp (1 review written)

Kuredu Island Resort in the Maldives is very beautiful and paradise like. The room was simple but nice. Service was excellent, and house keeping was very good. It was a nice touch with the T-shirt, fruit and sparkling wine for honeymooners. We were in a jacuzzi beach villa, which was nice, and I think I still prefer it to a water villa, as you are on the beach and you have the jacuzzi.

Unfortunately, I got very sick and had to call out the doctor in the middle of the night. Thank God for… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/07/2006 by stuarcher (1 review written)

The Kuredu Island Resort in the Maldives is a great place for a honeymoon. You can have lazy days followed by some lively evenings!! The golf course was a really exclusive club, if you lived up that end of the island; not too many people get there! The downside is there is a bit of a walk to the main area's, which is a good thing at times. All the staff were very friendly and always smiled while getting you drinks.

Highlights: Swimming with turtles and the dolphins on our sunset… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/07/2006 by allansmith (1 review written)

Having travelled to the Maldives a few times before Kuredu was a big disapointment. Our mistake was booking onto an island that is too big for a Kuredu Island Resort - Secluded break. The levels of accomodation are limited and having upgraded to a Beach Villa - which was ok - the cost in doing so was overpriced. This was the poorest standard of accomodation we have seen in the Maldives. Think of tin sheets for roofing and being on the blusteriest side of the island far from ideal. A route… Read Full Review

Kuredu Island Resort - I read with interest the reviews from the past year and feel obliged to put the case for the defence. Admittedly, we'd gone the whole hog and opted for the Water Villas and the exclusive "Sangu" end of the island. But I think it was worth the extra. The service was impeccable throughout, faultless execution of our every wish. The all inclusive was good as the food was superior to other islands I've stayed on; more variety and better prepared. The fact we were actually in… Read Full Review

Have read with interest your review on Meedhupparu and Kuredu. We went to Kuredu last August 05, and are about to go to Meedhapparu. How do they compare? We absolutely loved Kuredu and we are not sure that any other island will match. Pleased to hear about Sri Lankan airlines having legroom as this is who we are going to be travelling with. Last year flew upgrade on Monarch which was great. Libby Shepherd

Kuredu Island is a beautiful island to visit. Unfortunately we booked a beach bungalow and was very dissapointed with our accommodation, on the first day of our stay we requested an upgrade to a Beach Villa (which we were more than happy to pay for) only to be told that accommodation on the island had been double booked and that they had a large party of divers expected later in the week. We later saw an adverisement in the reception area asking for volunteers to transfer to other islands with… Read Full Review
