Great activities AND relaxing stay in Maldives!Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: We enjoyed playing tennis, the water sports activities (jet skiing and parasailing), and the FOOD was fantastic.
Cons: Include cost of airport transportation!! More hours for the restaurants (they open at 7pm)!! Provide bikes to go around the island, upon request.
Location: We went on the Male tour excursion, which we enjoyed very much. We were able to do a little shopping and take a walking tour of the capital city.
If you're looking to do some fun-filled activities AND relax by the water then this Resort is right for you. It was our FIRST TIME in Maldives (my husband and I), and we were looking for a resort that combined those two things We just returned from our 4 night stay in Kurumba. I must stay we are very pleased with our choice of Resort. I don't have another Resort to compare to, however from our recent experience, we truly enjoyed our time in Kurumba. The staff at the Water Sports Center in Kurumba were extremely friendly. We went jet skiing (aka water scooter) at 4:15pm and we were able to see the Dolphins!!There are only two jet skis, my husband and I were on one and the water sports employee (Ayesh) was on the other. That was their policy, we weren't able to have our own, but that's ok. You were in the middle of the ocean, and there are so many islands around, you probably wouldn't be able to get back to your resort alone anyway. Plus Ayesh showed us the way to see the dolphins. I highly recommend you take a jet ski (if you're able to) to see the dolphins, if you want to see them up close. The food was great!The restaurants were good, we liked a couple more than others (Japanese and Italian are our top two favs). We just wished they had more hours(open at 7pm) You are pretty close to your villa neighbors while on the beach, if you don't have a private pool, you'll be in close proximity to others, just fyi. The beach chairs need to be farther apart, if possible.

The best honeymoon destination on earth!Posted Jul 13, 2014
Location: Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Candle light dinners, Private beaches, awesome fooood & so much more
My wife and I chose Kurumba for our 4-night honeymoon and we were so delighted we did so. We reached Maldives around 10am and were picked up from the airport and transferred to the island via a private royal boat. Once reached, we were given an upgrade and the deluxe bungalow was just fantastic, neat and very romantic, few steps from the scenic beautiful private beach. The water was mesmerizing. We were quite delighted to receive complimentary candle light dinner, snorkeling lessons and 3-hr snorkeling tour to different reefs. The food was just so delicious and wide range of selection to choose from. We didn't repeat a single restaurant in our 5 day stay here. We also did Scuba Diving with the Euro Divers and it was just memorable. We saw sharks, turtles, beautiful corals and a wide variety of fishes! The staff are beyond your imaginable expectation, they never say NO to your wishes. They are simply fantastic and so well behaved in their gestures. My wife and I never wanted to leave ;). I would highly recommend this place to people looking for the best holiday in Maldives. Kurumba we will see you soon!

Great Honeymoon ChoicePosted Jul 5, 2014
The staff are friendly, the accommodation is great, and the place is beautiful! You couldn't ask for more for a great honeymoon. Although it is a bit pricey, and the food is generally lacking in good taste. WARNING: Dinner costs around $100 US per day...and is not included if you don't go with the All Inclusive package.

Want to go backPosted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: Everything! We spent our time relaxing on the beach, walking in the warm water, and generally watching world go by. Staff smiling and helpful
Cons: We wanted to stay longer and were quite disappointed we did not book more nights.
Location: Back of House tour and House reef snorkeling tour strongly recommended.
We enjoyed a 4 night stay at Kurumba in June, 2014. We arrived into male airport and just outside the arrival door, at pillar 4 was the Kurumba representative- it was a quick walk to the boat, and we were off. Cool cloths and water were provided for the short ride. Unfortunately, our flight arrived at night, so we really did not see much. The check in was smooth- provided with the tasty coconut ice cream, and then taken to our room. It was # 115, the second floor, large and with a huge bathroom, complete with outdoor shower (my husband's favorite). The next morning, we opened the curtains to a breath taking view of white sand and blue water. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty, we also ate at the Ocean Grill and Cucina (Italian). Both were delicious. Do make reservations for any a la carte restaurants. We went out on the dolphin cruise, did the house reef snorkeling tour and the cooking class.

Almost HeavenPosted May 28, 2014
Cons: open air bathrooms are great but not to get ready in. Should convert bar area inside AC-ed room into a proper dressing area w good lighting.
Hotel was great location only 10 minute boat ride form airport but airport noise at a minimum (heard max of 4 planes/day). Beach great (bungalo) and great snorkelling. Husband loved the dive team. Staff fantastic. We ate only a la carte and food was good.
