Problems started from arrival in Male (airport) where the arrivals clerk had no paperwork pertaining to our seaplane transfer. As such (and despite us having the relevant documentation ourselves) we were offered a chance to "get on the boat now as you are holding up the other people" or to wait 5 hours for the next scheduled seaplane (taxi service is not quite an accurate description). Arrival in Kuramathi was chaotic as there was not enough staff to process the amount of people that had just… Read Full Review

Large Island, so the guests are quite spread out, if you move away from the beach where the bars are, you could be there on the beach on your own. All inclusive works well, better than others we have tried, if you just want simple drinks and a few cocktails then there is no need for any spending money. No shops. No Nightclub. Great Staff both Local and from Sri Lanka. They look after returning guests with top rate rooms and best tables. Food good. bad points, not there for long enough and… Read Full Review

The All Inclusive, staff, romance, totally relaxing. Best holiday ever - paradise.
Top tips: don't change £ to Maldivian currency, they only use US$. We enjoyed the All Inclusive, they had a 12 page cocktail list - hiccup! Saw sharks, fish, rays, lizards, geckos, fruit bats. So cool swimming with the sharks - they are completely harmless. Sea is like swimming in a bath, so warm and clear. The sand was almost white and felt like talcum powder. It is difficult to put the Maldives experience into… Read Full Review

My wife and I have just returned from 2 weeks on Kuramathi. It was by far the best holiday, in the most fantastic location we have ever been on. Our accomodation was room 247 in the cottage and spa, a water bungalow, from which we could go down our own private steps into warm Azure water, teeming with marine life. The reef was a 2 minute snorkel away but can be tricky to get over at low tide, those with children should consider a boat trip, where I encountered grey tipped reef sharks and manta… Read Full Review

Kuramathi is very informal and you can relax in the truest sense of the word - this is what I call a proper holiday. Do as little as you like. As far as money is concerned if you don't want to spend another penny you don't need to. The rooms are very comfortable and all the staff are very friendly. Paradise and we'll be back soon… Read Full Review

My advice to anyone is go and see for yourself and I am sure you will not be disappointed. We are retuning to The Village this April after trying Bandos Island last year, although Bandos was very very nice we just felt a bit more at home at Kuramathi, everyone was very friendly and it was just very laid back. Roll on April! We never had any trouble with paying extra for water when on the all inclusive package. I think as long as you do your research so you know exactly what to expect when you… Read Full Review

We have been to Kuramathi Village 3 times now, and we are looking to book again soon. This is the most perfect location for a chill out holiday, with staff who want to make your stay as good as possible. The island is large enough to make it worthwhile going for a walk round it, to try to compensate for the excellent food.
The rooms are cleaned twice a day, and the sheets are folded in intricate patterns. Talk to the staff, they will love you for it and make an extra effort for you.

The location of Kuramathi Village in the Maldives is absolutely wonderful. It is a large island with lots of space. We were told that it was fully booked, but some days we only saw other people at meal times. This island is a must for all romantics. All of the staff are without exception, from the Kuoni representative (Mr T), waiters, room boys and reception staff etc., were all eager to help us to enjoy our stay on the island, and they were always happy and smiling.
A must for the… Read Full Review

SNORKELLING - The singular best thing for me was the amazing snorkelling off the island, fish of every variety and colour could be seen just 50 yards off shore. We also went on a cruise and had the amazing good fortune to be joined by a number of dolphin pods who proceeded to swim in the bow wave and leap out of the water every few seconds - out of this world!!!
THE FOOD - If you opted for the buffet and avoided the stuff they made to cater specifically for the British/German/East European… Read Full Review

Kuramathi Tourist Island i the Maldives is a really good holiday base. Having been to a large and small island previously, I have always steered away from Kuramathi as I knew it was a large island, but how wrong I was! It never felt large or full. The dining room felt relaxed, and so did the bar and the coffee shop. The staff were attentive, and to go all that way for just one week was great. I would recommend this island to anyone. Being a larger island, but being divided into 3 resorts… Read Full Review

We loved Kuramathi Village in the Maldives so much that we are going back in June 2006.
This place is not just an underwater paradise, it draws you back like a majestic magnet time and time again.
Everybody we met was so friendly, and we had many a cocktail until the wee hours with them.
Staff were great, and if you talk about English football teams they get all excited. Take them an old footy shirt, and you will have a friend for life (def kids size)!!
The Food was lovely, especially the… Read Full Review

The island was fully booked when we were there, but it did not feel like it. We had beaches to ourselves most days, and we only really saw people in the main restaurant and in the bar! The one day we went to the Island Barbecue we were the only people in there! It was fantastic!
When you have your first meal there make sure you get a nice table with a view, as they will then reserve the table for you for the rest of your stay. If you go as close to the beach as you can, there will be a nice… Read Full Review

1. Kuramathi Tourist Island is not an intimate island. There are three resorts with a taxi traversing back and forth. This means:
(a)If you want a drink when on the beach you often have to walk 15 minutes to your room.
(b) You cannot get a drink from the bar as you cannot use your all inclusive anywhere on the island, but only in the resort closest to your room.
2.The Bungalows are set back from the beach, many set in a kind of Semi Circle Shape. This means:
(a) In most Bungalows you cannot… Read Full Review

My husband and I are going back to Kuramathi Village in the Maldives for Christmas and New Year, and this will be our forth visit to Kuramathi. We have been to three other islands, and although they were very nice, for us, they did not compare. We are looking forward to seeing the new restaurant, and we are sure it will be a stunning addition, having been shown the plans and walked the site in June of this year. Christmas on the island is fabulous, and although a Muslim country, the hotel and… Read Full Review

I have to be honest and say that there is absolutely nothing wrong with Kuramathi, it truly is paradise. We had a bit of a bad start as the resorts larger boat had broken down, and we had to transfer from the airport to the resort via a smaller speed boat. I have sea legs, and I must be honest I found it tough going! However, we did get the seaplane back and found it to be an excellent service, so I'd advise paying the extra for the plane, particularly if you're fresh out of sea legs!
