Kurumba

‘Secluded Island Paradise’

The first resort to open in the Maldives, Kurumba is steeped in history and has a wealth of modern facilities. Clusters of rooms, bungalows and villas are dotted around the resort; nestled amongst the overgrowth or positioned steps away from the beach. Families are encouraged to stay here as there is plenty for your little ones to do in the comprehensive Majaa Kid’s Club. Meanwhile, Kurumba is equipped with a dine around all-inclusive option and a restaurant for each night, eight in total and a couple of additional bars too. Snorkelling amongst the house reef is an idyllic way to start your stay, while there is also a Euro Divers facility – where highly trained specialists can help you achieve your dream of PADI certification or simply to experience the many dive sites and sea life.
