Stayed one night in Male as our arrival time was too late. Kurumba arranged the boat transfer from Male at about 10am and it arrived on time. When arrived at Kurumba after 10 minutes, we could check in although check in starts at 2pm. And our room was upgraded to a deluxe bungalow (booked a deluxe room in fact). The... More

Perfect first family trip. Thanks to Kurumba's staff we made a dream come true with our baby. This amazing resort is close to the airport and Male (good idea is you travel with children...Just in case) and it has everything you need to spend your best holidays there. Incredible beaches, you can snorkel and easily see sharks, turtles...Majaa kid's club... More

We stayed at Kurumba in July and had an extremely fun-filled, yet relaxing break. We deliberately chose a place close to Male as we were traveling with another family and wanted to have an easy journey and to maximize our time on a resort. Kurumba did not disappoint. From the moment we booked, Mr Ibrahim Naeem looked after our reservation... More

The place is a paradise and the resort is just perfect for families. As we were a couple travelling with our 18month old son our holiday depended a lot on his moods. But the resort was just perfect. The kids club, babysitting facility and resort is designed to be kid friendly. The staff are amazing and the kandu bar had... More

We had a wonderful time and the food , services and staff exceeded all our expectations. The beach side bungalows are highly recommended. We also had a renewal of vows ceremony , which was the icing on the cake of a wonderful time.

Kurumba was recommended by friends and I'm so glad I went there! I was a bit worried that going on my own would be uncomfortable, but it was never an issue. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The beach areas are beautiful, as is the main pool. The... More

Kurumba is, I believe, was the first tourist island in the Maldives. I have been going on and off since the early 1990's and I have seen it grow and develop to what it is today. It still retains the magic and charm it always had, the staff are super helpful and you can be as busy or relaxed as... More

This was our second time staying at Kurumba.

It was just as good! After a long journey we were... More

I picked Kurumba because of its history and easy access from the airport. The rooms and service were excellent! They have a variety of restaurants which all offer great food (favorites were the breakfast buffet and Thila). There are a ton of activities to choose from including a well appointed spa or you can enjoy their snorkeling channels filled with... More
