First of all I would like to say that I love Kurumba very much and visited it 5 times, first time was 10 years ago. That’s why it’s very sad regarding to how it changed during past 2 years. First of all it became the real Turkish hotel for Russians. Here are some examples: All inclusive dining is designed so...

The resort is the nearest to the airport and probably the largest one. The service is excellent, the rooms were excellent and the beach is amazing. Only the Japanese restaurant needs improvements. I strongly recommend the hotel sightseeing tour showing the recycling and life of the support staff

Kurumba is the first island to be made into a resort in 1972. That said, it has a new, upgraded feel to it. The minus is the proximity to Male and the city lights and view of huge barges from one side of the island. Everything else is outstanding. It is a great intro to Male, and it has something...

We stayed at Kurumba one night before our flight back. The resort was nicely decorated, but not in a very typical seaside resort style. The beach was not as great as we expected, as it was facing Male and Male airport with lots of big ships around it. The airplane noises were quite loud, so together with the Male picture...

The resort is too near the airport. 10 mins ferry ride away from airport. Always hear airplane sounds . The resort is nice. Food is average. As always, half board or full board and all inclusive options. Maldives are priced in Usd and so it is relatively expensive on the ala carte menu. If you have dine in Switzerland, then...

This place is really as incredible as all the reviews say! We went for 10 days over Easter with young kids.
