5 reviews of “Kuramathi Maldives

  1. Erica / August 9, 2018

    Kuramathi Island has a 4 star rating however I believe that it could easily pass as a five star resort. It is indeed a value for money for people who is looking for a not so expensive place but wants to get away from the city and unwind. Rooms are superb. Big and spacious rooms that has a very beautiful view of the ocean. The island is huge and there is plenty of things to do in the resort to make sure guests won’t get bored even if they stay for more than a week or two. There is different restaurants to choose from and the theme is rotating to make sure that guests won’t repeat the same food within a week. There is a kids place that is very suitable for couple who also wants to spend time alone with each other. Baby sitting is also available

    Kuramathi is a 4* resort and one of the first resorts in the. Maldives. It opened in the. Maldives on 1th of October 1975 and is part of Universal Resorts – the pioneers of tourism in the Maldives. Kuramathi is located on Rasdhoo Atoll. You can reach it by speedboat within 90 min, or by seaplane within 20 mins from Velana International Airport.

    Kuamathi is 1.8 km long and divided in 3 parts of the island: Main Area. Athiri Area, and Thundi Area. Each area has a reception, main restaurant and main bar. In total there are 3 main restaurants, 9 a la cart restaurants, 5 bars and 2 special bars on the island. Resort offers 11 room categories.

    There is a sandbank on the west of the island and it is very beautiful. The perfect spot for the sunset.

    There is a beautiful, untouched area inside the island, which is called “nature walks”, you may feel like you are in a real jungle. You may also find a huge Banyan. tree which is one of the oldest in the Maldives, its age is estimated to be around 300 y.o.

    It is also important to highlight that rooms condition is different on different areas on the resort. The most newly built categories you may find in Thundi Area, which is close to the sandbank.

    One of the main feature of the island is one of the biggest kids club in the Maldives. I would say the best one among 4* resorts.

    House reef is reachable from the beach by swimming, but still it is a little bit far, and may be not the best option for the beginners, however I didn’t feel any strong current. Again everything depends on the time of the year and the weather.

    Resort offers an interesting sunset cruise, you may see dolphins, but we also saw hummer head sharks, which was very unusual for that area.

    Overall I would say this resort is among the best in 4* category, especially for families with kids.

    Kuramathi is a big resorts with plenty of activities and natural greenery
    A 300-year-old huge banyan tree grows on the island, that is amazing! I really liked the cafes and bars where you can chat with other guests and sit on the bean bags on the beach. In the evening you can watch movies in openair cinema. I would mentioned 1 point I don’t like – Villas on the beach do not have private access to the water
