Kuramathi Island Resort - Maldives​

Whether seeking a peaceful hideaway or active adventure, there is plenty to do – or not do!

A popular resort

Kuramathi is one of the Maldives’ most popular resorts and it’s perfect if you’re looking for variety alongside relaxation.

Here, pathways weave through lush foliage, leading to the excellent facilities that are dotted around this large island. There are two oceanfront infinity pools plus a lagoon-style pool shaded by palm trees, and snorkelling on the house reef is possible straight from the beach.

With villas in several distinct styles both on land and over the water, you are bound to find the perfect one for you. Kuramathi offers an option for everyone, ranging from Beach Villas to the well-appointed pool villas.

All villas feature king-sized bed, attached bathroom, shower, hot and cold water, air conditioning, fan, hair dryer, bath and beach towels, bathrobes, bathroom amenities, minibar, in-room safe, IDD telephone, coffee/tea making facilities, flat screen TV with cable and sundecks with sunloungers. Private terrace unfolds into a luxurious outdoor living space. Relax in the privacy of a secluded garden with sunken swimming pool, wooden deck, sun loungers and invigorating outdoor shower.

All the things you need to know

The 360 garden, beach and water villas on the island range from simply designed Garden Villas and Beach Villas nestled in abundant vegetation (but just a short walk from the beach) to Deluxe Beach Villas that face the lagoon and luxury Pool Villas that sit right at the edge of the beach. Two Bedroom Beach Houses sleep six; ideal for families or friends travelling together. For the iconic overwater experience, opt for a Deluxe Water Villa perched above the turquoise lagoon.

You’ll be allocated one of the three buffet restaurants determined by the location of your villa. We recommend upgrading to Select All Inclusive for the full choice of nine à la carte restaurants – including the popular Island Barbecue on the beach, Siam Garden serving up authentic Thai dishes, and fine dining at Duniye in the verdant heart of the island. Of the bars, favourites include the Sand Bar, where you can sink into a comfy beanbag with a cocktail and bury your toes in the sand, and the chic Champagne Loft. It’s worth noting that children need to be over 6 to dine at Kobe, Duniye, Island Barbecue, The Reef and Inguru.

Haruge, Malaafaiy and Farivalhu
These three main restaurants are buffet style, and you’ll automatically be allocated one of these depending on where your villa is located. If you choose Full Board or All Inclusive, this is what’s included.

At the heart of the island, Duniye serves up ‘fine dining world cuisine’ and fantastic wines.

  • Spa & Wellness: The Spa at Kuramathi is set amidst lush vegetation. Offering a selection of treatments based on traditional rituals from Europe, India, Thailand and Indonesia, it uses only the best YonKa and Voya products and natural oils and ingredients. There’s a focus on couples – as well as seven beachside couples’ treatment rooms, there’s a couples’ water pavilion massage room and a private herbal bath treatment room. Before your treatment, relax in the Spa Lounge and enjoy a specially blended herbal tea.
  • Diving & Watersports: Diving here is particularly impressive, with the Rasdhoo Atoll featuring more than 20 sites that can be reached in just five to 45 minutes. Dive sites vary between channels, walls, reefs, thilas and even a couple of wrecks.

    The marine life is diverse and abundant, including different types of sharks (and you will see sharks on almost every dive), eagle rays, stingrays, manta rays (November to April), turtles, barracuda, tuna, Napoleons, morays, schools of jacks and trevally, leaf fish and even the occasional whale shark.

    Rasdhoo Divers operates a dive school on the island (PADI/SSI). The multi-lingual team offers an excellent diving experience for both beginners and advanced divers. 

    The dive program for certified divers includes early morning dawn dive at Shark Point, morning and afternoon dives, night dives, half-day and full-day safaris.

    Trips depart on purpose-built 15m diving dhonis. Group size for certified divers is usually maximum 6 divers per guide and experienced divers with a minimum of 50 logged dives can dive unguided if they wish. Courses run with max. 4 students per instructor. Kuramathi also features a fully-equipped medical centre with hyperbaric chamber.

Bageecha kids’ club offers activities for ages 3-12, including guided snorkelling and treasure hunts. Two Bedroom Beach Houses are the perfect family space, sleeping up to 6 people. Daytime activities include body and face painting, marshmallow grilling, beach games and marine life education.

The team at Kuramathi care passionately about the natural beauty of their island and strive to find ways to protect the island’s environment with practices they can implement on a daily basis. The Eco Centre, established back in 1999, was set up to better understand and monitor the fragile ecosystem and now runs programs on coral reef research, water temperature measurement, they maintain a coral nursery and increase awareness for guests, including educating children as part of the kids club activities. The team are in continuous collaboration with the local community to educate and protect the environment and to provide employment and business opportunities for local people.

The island has it’s own water purification and bottling plant, in place since 2011, to minimise the use of plastic bottles. Salads and herbs are grown in the island’s hydroponic gardens. They use effective waste management methods to create nutrient-rich compost from organic waste and have energy and water saving measures.
