Kurumba  Price rating for Kurumba Maldives
North male Atoll



Drifting into the shallow, azure lagoon through a gap in the house reef, the first impressions are of an island covered with coconut palms, giving rise to the name 'Kurumba'.  A sharper glance will just make out the individual bungalows which alude to the islands rather man-made character. The resort feels a tad "American" in its layout and style but they have planted luxuriant vegetation and a huge orchid house to keep rooms and baths replensished each day.

The bungalows and villas are rather modern in style close together but each villa is only a few steps from the ocean.  The interiors are  very stylish and feature rich, glowing  timbered floors and ceilings, neutral tones and natural fabrics, highlighted by accent cushions and pictures in rich jewel colours.

With six restaurants offering such varied cuisine as fresh grills, Italian specialities, Indian and Arabic temptations, Japanese sushi and authentic Chinese dishes no palate is left unsatisfied.  For those who like to graze as they play the coffee shop offers delicious snacks all day long.

The gentle, warm lagoon tempts the swimmers and snorkellers, but for younger children who may need a  more watchful eye, there are two attractive free- form swimming pools allowing parents to sunbathe sand free.

Older children and adults will find all they desire at the Water Sports centre. Equipment and expert tuition is available for windsurfing, sailing and diving.

When the island becomes too small, sail out onto the ocean in a dhoni (traditional boat) and visit other islands of the atoll.  Enjoy the local culture and crafts, picnic on the beach, then sail  home against a backdrop of the most dramatic sunset you can imagine.  


 Highs  Lows
  •  Good all round family resort with plenty of atmosphere and facilities
  • Great chefs and variety of menus to keep any 14 days  guest  content.
  • Close to Male for short  2-4 days stays.
  •  A large, slighty concrete resort and lacks  Maldivian character so not for the  romancing couple seeking privacy or authenticity.
