Sometimes the classics are really best, and Kurubma Maldives is the perfect example. This was the first luxury resort, or any resort, to open in Maldives in the 1970s. After undergoing a total reconstruction in the early 2000s, this resort is now filled with sophisticated, modern style and pizzazz. With 180 accommodations spread throughout the island, this resort offers plenty of options for every type of guest.
The resort at Kurumba Maldives was created to take advantage of the lush local foliage. With a beautiful topical garden, including an orchid nursery, shaded walking paths that lead around the 30 acres making up the island, and beautiful natural elements in every one of the bungalows and villas, the resort lives up to its name, taken from the abundant coconut trees that grow in the region. All of the rooms in every villa include wood floors and solid timber furniture that echo this natural beauty.
Within the villas, guests can stay in rooms that are just a few steps away from the private white beaches, which are protected by eco-breakwaters made of weathered coral. There are rooms available for two, three, or four, all of which include beautiful amenities and amazing views of the Indian ocean. The rooms are climate controlled, include private terraces, have satellite TV and high-speed Internet and more.
Guests can enjoy access to an open air shower and garden space, a “rain shower” under the thatched awning, a Jacuzzi, a private bar, a private swimming pool, and these are just in the standard villa. The Royal Kurumba Residence, the resort’s most luxurious accommodation, also has a waterfall, private speed boat transfer, and more. Every one of these accommodations allow guests to access the activities and entertainment options available at the resort. Relax in the crystal clear lagoon, get a pampering treatment in the spa, or have an adventure with scuba diving, water sports, of the seven-day activity program.
With eight restaurants and three bars, live entertainment, and activities for guests of all ages, the Kurumba Maldives offers everything that luxury vacationers need to enjoy a break from the “real world”. The resort does offer all-inclusive packages for a better value, as well as celebration packages for honeymooners, weddings and more. Everything at the resort is infused with local Maldives culture, offering an authentic experience within the lap of luxury.
