Wonderful resort in paradise location

Posted Jan 5, 2018
Pros: The warmth of the staff, the beauty of the surroundings, the integrity and social responsibility of the resort owners/management
Cons: Some of the selling of extras - excursions, spa treatments, beach dinners etc - seemed a bit over the top
Location: Turtle sanctuary at Naifaru well worth a visit
Once you ignore the fact that a repressive 100% Muslim country is selling an alcohol-soaked, pork-eating hedonistic idyll to wealthy foreigners, Kuredu in the Maldives delivers everything it promises - turquoise seas, golden sands, palm trees and coconuts and fabulous welcoming all-inclusive hospitality. There are a host of water-based activities, mostly for an extra cost, with snorkelling and diving prominent on the offer. There are sailing trips on offer and island-hopping tours, including to a nearby sea turtle sanctuary. The highlight for us was the behind the scenes tour, where we saw the whole enterprise required to make our dreams come true. Guests are shown behind the scenes, seeing the laundry, staff canteens and living areas, water treatment plant, supplies management system, greenhouses etc, while being able to ask any questions of the staff. Over half the staff are Maldivian, including many in the senior management roles, and are paid on the same basis as non-Maldivians. There was an excellent atmosphere among the staff, and it seems that the owners respect the locals (there is a mosque in the team village) and do not exploit them. The fact that there is a behind the scene tour indicates owners who are willing to be accountable for how they are running the resort.

Wonderful Stay

Posted Dec 23, 2017
I only stayed a few short days but everything about my experience was wonderful. The vegetarian food option were great. The staff was very friendly and remembered my name after our first meeting. I stayed in a beach villa with jacuzzi tub and it was great as well. There is nothing negative that I have to say about the resort except that the WiFi should be free. It was limited to 500MB per day for free, unlimited for $15 USD per day or $50USD for 5 or 7 days (I forgot which, sorry). Also there is no WiFi in the main bar/entertainment area which has its pros and cons...it’s great if you are there with people because you can disconnect from distractions but I was by myself so I had to choose every night to either connect with my husband or listen to music/partake in events. It would have been nice to do both.

O resort peaceful

Posted Oct 6, 2017
The beach villas are lovely, the beach bungalows are not as good and in poor location. The O resort is very quiet.The staff are very good. To snorkle the house reef you need to be a good swimmer as there is a current. The food and drinks are very good on the all inclusive.

beautiful resort

Posted Oct 1, 2017 on Orbitz
Kuredu is a very beautiful resort, everything was superior, we stayed at the beach villa, - koamas # 202, villa was super nice, spacious with outdoor shower, which was nice, we really liked our location, close to everything, jetty noise didn't bother us, actually it was very unique, i woke up every morning around sunrise and enjoyed walking on a white sand beach, we went snorkeling every day, saw many turtles, and many kinds of fish, at nighttime every night, we saw huge, may be 4-6 feet long sharks, many huge mantas, by the pier, we had a very good time!!

All inclusive misleading

Posted Sep 4, 2017 on Ebookers
Pros: Staff were super friendly
Cons: All above in my experience column
Location: You are on the resort for your stay, we did do a trip to the Turtle sancturary
We travelled for an EID break for 4 nights from Qatar, as we were with friends we selected the all inclusive package. When we arrived we were told that there were certain bars restaurants and even a pool that we could not use, we couldn't upgrade to their so GOLD package as we only stayed for 4 nights, We asked one of the staff managers how many people were at the resort during our stay, and were told it was 800, he then went on to say there were only that didn't even have cushions, he advised us to get up early and reserve sunbeds with our personal belongings, even though there were signs (rightly so) stating this is not allowed. As we only went for a short break we selected a later flight home in the evening to ensure we got another full day at the resort, we were then told that our only choice of sea plane was leaving at 1pm which meant we had 6 and half hours wait at the airport. I feel we were cheated out of a full day.

Dear Phillip, Greetings from Kuredu Island Resort & Spa! Thank you very much for your feedback. We were pleased to read that in general you have enjoyed your stay with us and we appreciate that you have highlighted our friendly Team Members. We do apologize for the inconveniences you have mentioned in regards to our all-inclusive packages available and that you have not been made aware of the restrictions included. Please be informed that all Tour Operators around the world are informed equally and in detail about our inclusions on packages, which are also available as fact sheets on our website for everyone to download. We do have 3 swimming pools at different areas in the resort with access limitations due to age restrictions and according to the booked category of guests. Of course the communication from our Team Member which you have described is not acceptable and also not according to our standard procedures. The management will make sure that this will be followed up by a reminder training. Our teams do try their best to provide the exceptional hospitality that Kuredu is known for. Please be informed that seaplane operations are organized by Trans Maldivian Airways (TMA) with little control by resorts on their scheduling. All departure flights from resorts are therefore scheduled between 12pm and 3pm daily. For the convenience of our guests we do offer an extended service even after departure from the resort, to enjoy any waiting time at our seaplane lounge area including Wi-Fi, hot and cold beverages, shower and bathroom facilities and a snack menu available until 9pm in the evening. We appreciate your valued feedback which enables us to learn of your guest experience in order to improve on our hospitality services on all levels. Best regards,
