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 more)

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.
The Island was... (read more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

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.

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

We spent 11 nights in Kuredu and had a very enjoyable stay.
Unfortunately the previous year we had a holiday at at Sun Island which was the same star rating and cost and we found was far superior and kept comparing the two resorts.
On you arrival you are met with the customary cold towel and at Kuredu a small glass of orange squash but at Sun Island a hollowed out cocunut with a cocunut drink inside. At Sun Island you are then driven in a golf buggy to your room and everything explained... (read more)

Kuredu Island Resort: We stayed in a Jacuzzi Beach Villa in May 2005 at the Sangu end of the resort. It was amazing. These and the Beach Villas have the best beaches and locations on the island. It is well worth upgrading if you are not a diver and are spending time on the island.
We got the sea plane transfer which you have to pay extra for but is a must as the boat looked a bit small and old and took over 4 hours.
The staff really know about customer service and from the waiter to the... (read more)

We have just returned from one week on Kuredu Island Resort from the 31 Jan - 07 Feb 05. We had a fantastic week in paradise. We stayed on all inclusive basis in a Beach Villa. The villa was ideally located about 300m away from the centre of the resort and was very quiet yet near enough to the dinning and bars. The sea was 20m in front of the villa and we had views to die for from our veranda. The food was excellent, buffet style, good quality and all you could eat. The staff could not... (read more)

We stayed on Kuredu in December 2004 (just before the tsunami, although we understand that Kuredu was not affected).
Our experience was outstanding. The accomodation was comfortable and clean, the food excellent, the beaches pristine, the water clear and warm, the house reef accessible and well-populated. Service was a bit slow at times, but then who cares when you're in paradise...
To get there, take the air taxi. It's quick and convenient, and offers great views.

Kuredu Island Resort - We holidayed here from 7th-21st June 04. We were in a water villa in the Sangu end of the resort where guests can use the extra bar and restaurant on an all inclusive basis - they can also use all of the restaurants and bar A/I in the main resort. Drinks in the Al a Carte restaurants 'Thai' 'Grill' and 'Italian' are also included on the all inclusive. The cost of a two course meal in these restaurants are approx $35-55 for two people.

My partner and myself spend two weeks at Kuredu Island in January 2004. We had a great time and would not hesitate to recommend it. As always, it had its negatives as well as positive - however, for us the positives far outweighed the negatives.
Kuredu Island Resort is approximately 40 minutes, by Seaplane, from Male airport. We did not try the boat transfer as it was 4 hours! We got reports from other guests that the boat-transfer is 'not nice', especially in choppy seas. The seaplane... (read more)
