Overview

Situated on the idyllic island of Vihamanaafushi not too far from the capital of Male is Kurumba. This tropical island resort puts just as much emphasis on activities as it does on relaxation. It’s both lively and laidback, so guests are free to enjoy their time here in whichever way they prefer. After flying into Male International Airport, guests reach the resort by a 10-minute speedboat transfer. Kurumba holds the distinction of being the Maldives’ very first private island resort.

There’s a choice of eight different accommodation grades ranging from the comfortable Superior Rooms to the expansive Royal Kurumba Residence. All of the resort’s rooms, bungalows and villas are handsomely furnished and very well presented, their décor combining a contemporary and traditional feel. Amenities common to all grades of accommodation include air conditioning and fans, a flat-screen TV with DVD player, complimentary toiletries, facilities for making tea, coffee and hot chocolate and a minibar. All guests receive slippers, bags and towels for use on the beach.

There’s a great deal to see, do and experience both on the island itself and further afield. For dining, there are a total of eight restaurants that serve an array of dishes from around the world. Try Middle Eastern delights at Al Qasr and traditional Indian classics at Mahal, or casual international food at Cafe and high-end Italian favourites at the adults-only Isola. There are several meal plans to choose from, including an all-inclusive option. Throughout the island are four bars; the Kandu Bar offers live entertainment, while the two Athiri Bars on opposite ends of the island are ideal locations for viewing the sunset.

Water sports such as wakeboarding, parasailing, kayaking and jet skiing are on offer in the island’s crystal clear waters, along with diving with a PADI certified instructor to discover a vibrant underwater world. Back on dry land, guests can enjoy a range of traditional treatments at the Veli Spa and take part in activities as varied as horticulture walks, yoga sessions, painting classes and cocktail mixing demonstrations. The resort offers a broad range of exciting excursions such as sunset cruises, guided tours of Male, night-time snorkelling trips and rides around the island in a glass-bottom boat.

Families will be pleased to know that children are welcome at Kurumba and can stay in all eight grades of accommodation. There’s plenty for children to do at the resort: there’s a cinema room and Playstation area, as well as games area and a splash pad. During the day, a wide range of age-appropriate activities are offered at the Majaa Kids’ Club. Note that parents should keep their children under adult supervision at all times.

  • Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
