Everything was so great...Transfer from the airport was immediate, our room was ready when we arrived and managed to check in even before noon. We got a free upgrade to a Deluxe Room and one complementary dinner at Thila as a gratitude for spending our honeymoon there. Staff is really polite, always greeting you. They have a lot of free organized events and activities like wine tasting, free cocktails, cooking Maldivian dishes, snorkeling lessons and tours, coconut capers, tours around the island etc. We also visited the spa and the couples massage was just perfect... The food in Vihamana was just fabulous, we had a full board, but often that was just too much. Half board would probably be enough. We couldn't have made a better choice for our honeymoon, looking forward to coming back soon :)

Classic Kurumba
This was our second stay at Kurmba, having visited here 10 years ago last. Our previous experience at Kurumba made it an easy choice to pick it as our resort this time as well. The proximity to the airport (with only a 10 minute boat ride) also made it a good choice as we had a n early morning departure flight from Maldives. Kurumba is one of the oldest resorts in Maldives but the management has done a fabulous job of keeping the resort up to date. It has a classic charm rather than the ultra chic look that some of the newer resorts have. The staff were friendly and helpful. The resort was kept meticulously clean and has taken on some ecofriendly initiatives. Dining options were plenty and of excellent quality. Apart from the usual buffet restaurant and cafes there are separate Indian, Japanese, Thai, Middle Eastern & Italian restaurants. There is good quality after dinner live entertainment. The gym was of an excellent quality. A doctor's clinic is also present in the resort in case of any medical emergencies. For those with young children, there is a good play area/day-care center. The resort has a reef around it that offers the chance for excellent snorkeling. A water sport center is on site. There is an interrupted barrier around the resort which virtually transforms the water around the resort into a swimming pool with gently lapping waves. The water is crystal-clear and exotic fish can be seen swimming between your legs. All in all, another great vacation at Kurumba!
