                  Excellent location and the fact that is a big island, with several restaurants. Excellent spot for small families!...

                  I liked the nature and the beaches and the rooms are beautiful.

                  Everything is about money in the hotel. Terrible. I am living in Dubai should be the most expensive city but this is unfair. Also we did not liked the food at all. No taste, no spiceys. Also pork and other meat is not seperated this should be a muslim country. Also the half board concept is useless. The food is only available in the buffet restaurant which is tasteless. Also no fishes around in the sea.

                  We spent our honeymoon at this wonderful place! Our vacation was amazing! It was fantastic - our water bungalow had a wonderful view with Jacuzzi and private stairs to the sea near the reef! We snorkeled and saw great amount of different types of exotic fishes and sharks! Everything was of high standard! Staff was polite and helpful!:) Our room was cleaned twice a day! Restaurants a la carte had a huge variety of dishes! We liked most of all - The barbecue restaurant with flamed dishes and desserts! And of course Thai restaurant! They are rather expensive so I recommend everybody to take select all inclusive! And you forgot about money and try everything on the island! Spa center is very great! We made our treatment at the open space pavilion on the water! And after we had relaxing bath I don't have enough words to describe our fillings! Also we had free sunset cruise during which we saw dolphins!!! Other day we visited neighbor island and bought a lot of souvenirs there! There are several interesting nature and botanic trails! Every evening we could watch stingray feeding! And of course we relaxed and had rest there, there you can get such feeling as you are all alone at the little piece of land in the ocean! Although there are many people at the hotel but if you want you will not meet anybody for a long time! We had brilliant weak! Hope someday we will return there!:) And the last June - is a rainy season! We had rains, but they were not long than half an hour two times a day and then there was sun all days long!

                  It woukld be better If you have possibility to book tables at the reastuarants a la carte by phone and not coming to the reception.

                  We stayed in the water villa with jacuzzi, and were very pleased. The room was spacious, beautiful view, very relaxing. We were particularly grateful for the peace and quietness of the surroundings.

                  Everything was perfect except for when we had a few queries about about our seaplane transfer, we had to ask at least 3 staffs until we got a satisfactory answer.

                  Kuramathi Island Resort is like heaven on earth (only flaws which I will explain later). We were on Select AI so we could dine at any restaurant at any time and we were lucky to reserve on special restaurants like the Reef and Island BBQ. The food in these restaurants and also italian restaurant were very very good. We have also tried the buffet however it was not good that is why we are happy that we were on Select AI. The island is very big so that is a little bit dissficult for families with small children, we had to call the buggy and sometimes it was late to come. In the website of the hotel it was saying that the kids club was open until 22:00 however it closed at 17:00 so we had to hire the lady at the kids club to babysit.

                  The housekeeping was not good, our room was never cleaned properly and the minibar was never filled up. That is why we always had to carry bottles of water from the bars to the room. I was bitten by mozzies and had some kind of allergy which was very disturbing but nothing happened to my kid and husband. The check in process was very slow, we arrived at around 17:00 and could not check in until 18:00, then we decided to walk to our room since there were no buggies, we finally were able to find our room in the dark and then had to wait for our luggage to arrive 40 minutes later. However they are pretty quick for check out.

                  Excellent location. Very clean room, serviced twice a day.

                  Room design is so-so, about 4 star level. Be ready to be nickel and dimed for everything. Bottle of water usd4.50, One scoop ice cream usd4.00 Plus plus. You have to settle the bill the night before checkout. On last day we paid extra for late checkout and had a light lunch for 2: Salad plus pizza and water for drinks usd 71.00!! Packet of nuts and small chocolate bar from mini bar fridge in room was almost usd20!! Will I go back? Dont think so, even though the experience was great, fantastic location, but they are out to take every penny they can get.

                  Good staff; relaxing; nice beach; all facilities are available this being a big island

                  Too big - good for family holidays but not for an intimate one; the food in the basic all inclusive restaurants is okay but not that great

                  9.2

                  We had seen all the great pictures and reviews but still kept our expectations low. But from the moment we were met at Male airport by the friendly resort staff to being shown in to the exclusive sea plane lounge through to the sea plane journey and finally being received at the resort we found the experience one to remember for years to come. Without exception, the resort staff were helpful, attentive and friendly. If you can stretch your budget go for a water villa - it won't be cheap but the memories you will get and views of the sealife will be with you for many years. Tip - if you don't drink much stick with the full board package and pay as you go for the spa,excursions and the odd drink.

                  second time visiting Kuramathi so we have something to compare too, as per last year the food was excellent on the Select All Inclusive package, definitely worth the extra cost. OUr room for 7 of the 8 nights (deluxe beach villa with jacuzzi) was great too, on the first night we had a superior beach villa jacuzzi as the deluxe wasn't available - this was smaller than the website pics indicate, but still fine, clean and comfy. Great that they now have sunloungers on the beach but should consider as other maldivian resorts do, allocatng these to the rooms ie if you are in a room that fronts onto the beach, the two loungers nearest your room are for your use only.

                  Not a lot to complain about, just seemed a little more bureaucracy than last year and a little more about them getting most money for less service. Examples are minor and if you hadn't been before you may not mind, but a couple of things sprung to mind - firstly the Select Inclusive upgrade - I emailed in advance to ask to upgrade (as I did last year) - they wrte back and confirmed this was fine and could be done on arrival, but when we arrived they tried to say we couldn't upgrade as they had too many people on this package already - they said they were concerned we would be unhappy if we couldn't get the restaurant bookings, but we did not have any problems, even booked the two most popular twice each during our stay, so I think the subtext here was they will lose money if too many people book the upgrade. And thats fine, but don't tell me a month before hand that I can upgrade on arrival! Secondly, we were moving rooms after the first night (see above), having arrived at 6pm we asked about this and they said we would get a letter explaining how it would work. When we returned from dinner the letter said the swap had to be done at 10am, when I phoned reception to ask if this could be changed they said no. Given our late arrival and the fact they don't allow guests to check in until noon anyway, I think they could have given us an extra hour! Finally, one evening we had a booking for two at the Palm, as did a couple we had become friendly with. Both bookings were for 9pm, the last sitting. When we asked if we could have a table for 4 they said no, this had to be booked at the time we made the reservation. Whilst this is sound as a policy if the restaurant was busy, by 9pm it was empty. We persisted and were allowed an inside table for 4 but then sat and watched as at least 6 tables outside remained empty, including 4 that were laid out for large groups.

                  The private snolking trip is wonderful. We see so many fabulous fish even the lobster. The stuffs there are very friendly, which impress me a lot. And the long beach at the end of the island is really really fantastic, and it will appear another more further way when the ebb tide, it's just like standing in the middle of the indian ocean when you walk in the sandbank, it's beyond description. Twice cleaning one day. And it's cheap to rent the snolking equipment. They also have bbsitter which us the biggest reason I chose kuramathi. Anyway, this trip to Maldives is unforgettable.

                  Fantastic beaches, beautiful white sand all around the island that allows you to be barefoot for days, great and helpful staff, perfect destination for romantic trip.

                  Haruge restaurant in full board option gives you after two days cantine feel.

                  Friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness of the villa and of the village in general, food varied and plentiful. We booked a beach villa and they gave us a beach villa with jacuzzi for free because the beach villas were full. The jacuzzi under the stars it was really appreciate ;).

                  We could not book an all-inclusive but only full board on Booked.net and then we had to pay an additional fee once arrived at the resort.
