Life On The Luxury Island of Kuredu Maldives

We have visited the Maldives with our family several times, but we always choose different islands to visit each time we go, until we found Kuredu. Nestled in the heart of the Maldives, Kuredu Island Resort lures travelers with the promise of turquoise waters, pristine beaches and a haven of serenity. In this comprehensive exploration, I embark on a virtual journey to reveal the magic of staying in Kuredu Maldives, from its magnificent accommodations and diverse culinary experiences to the myriad of activities that await me in this tropical paradise.

Kuredu Island Resort transcends just being a destination; is a meticulously crafted experience, designed for travelers seeking the perfect fusion of luxury and natural beauty. As a sprawling family island, Kuredu Maldives is vast and has the distinction of being home to one of the few golf courses in the Maldives, although it is a picturesque 3-hole course. From the moment you set foot on the island, a serene atmosphere envelops you and the inviting azure waters of the Indian Ocean warmly welcome you.

Upon arrival at Velana International Airport, the journey to Kuredu begins with a scenic seaplane transfer, offering breathtaking aerial views of the Maldives atolls. Tip: Buy a SIM card at the airport before your flight to have mobile data. There are two phone shops to the left of the airport entrance.

From the moment you arrive at Kuredu Maldives, the friendly and attentive staff provide you with a warm Maldivian welcome, setting the tone for an unforgettable stay. You will be greeted by a small group of team members playing drums as you make your way to reception. The island’s lush vegetation, combined with the calming sounds of the ocean, creates an immediate feeling of relaxation. Check-in is a little slow but very relaxed while you sip on a complimentary tropical drink (or whole coconut) at reception. If your room is ready and you have signed the documents, you can slowly make your way to the room escorted by one of the friendly staff members.

Kuredu Island Resort offers a range of accommodation designed to suit different preferences, from beach villas to overwater bungalows, each offering a unique and luxurious hideaway.

The beach villas (the option we chose on both our trips), nestled along the pristine coastline, offer a perfect blend of tropical charm and modern comfort. With direct access to white sand beaches, these villas offer a private oasis where the sound of the waves lulls you into tranquility. For those seeking the ultimate in luxury, Kuredu’s overwater bungalows offer an unrivaled experience. Suspended above the crystal clear waters, these spacious accommodations feature private terraces, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the breathtaking sunsets and vibrant marine life below. Taking exclusivity to the next level, Kuredu Private Pool Villas offer a secluded retreat with a personal infinity pool overlooking the ocean. These opulent villas redefine tropical luxury, providing an intimate setting for romantic getaways or serene relaxation.

Kuredu Island Resort is a gastronomic paradise, offering a wide range of dining options to suit all tastes, from international flavors to local Maldivian specialties. Bonthi, the resort’s main restaurant, serves a delicious range of international dishes in buffet style. From breakfast to dinner, guests can indulge in a culinary journey across continents, with themed evenings offering varied flavors to suit all tastes. We have always loved breakfast because the chefs are on hand to cook your egg exactly how you want it. For those craving a taste of Italy, Franco’s offers a romantic setting with an a la carte menu of authentic Italian dishes – and even pizza!!. With the backdrop of the Indian Ocean, this restaurant provides the ideal setting for a memorable dining experience. Our favorite restaurant, ‘The Far East’, transports guests to the bustling streets of Asia, offering a menu inspired by the culinary traditions of China, Japan and Thailand. By savoring sushi under the stars or tasting tasty fries, guests embark on a gastronomic adventure reflecting the diversity of the region. If you book in advance, you can enjoy the delights of a Teppanyaki where the Chef will prepare your meal in front of you at the table. As the day transforms into the golden hues of the sunset, Sangu Sunset Bar becomes the perfect venue for a relaxing evening. Located on the beach, this bar offers a selection of cocktails and light snacks, creating an intimate atmosphere for socializing or simply relaxing by the sea.

In addition to luxurious accommodations and delicious culinary experiences, Kuredu Island Resort invites adventurers to a myriad of activities on land and in the surrounding waters. Featuring its own fully equipped dive center, Prodivers Kuredu, the resort caters for both beginners and experienced divers. Explore the vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life or try your hand at various water sports, from windsurfing to catamaran sailing, for an adrenaline-filled aquatic adventure. A word of warning though, the reef is beautiful but accessing it from the beach is a bit risky as there are very protective triggerfish nesting in the sand which chased us away the two years we were there.

For those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, Kuredu offers a wide range of land-based activities. From beach volleyball to golf on the island course, there is no shortage of options. Additionally, guided excursions to nearby islands and traditional Maldivian fishing trips allow guests to immerse themselves in the local culture. After days full of exploration and adventure, Duniye Spa offers a sanctuary of relaxation and rejuvenation (look for free, quality massages often available). Surrounded by lush greenery, the spa offers a range of holistic treatments, ensuring a blissful escape from everyday life.

Kuredu Island Resort paves the way for unforgettable romantic experiences, making it an idyllic destination for weddings, honeymoons or intimate getaways. Couples looking for a dream beach wedding can exchange wedding vows with the Indian Ocean as a backdrop. Kuredu Maldives wedding coordinators ensure that every detail is tailored to perfection, creating a magical environment for a love-filled celebration.

For newlyweds, the resort offers special packages including romantic dinners, spa treatments and private excursions. With the serenity of overwater bungalows or the secluded privacy of private pool villas, Kuredu offers newlyweds an intimate retreat to create lasting memories.

It was great to learn that the staff at Kuredu Island Resort are committed to sustainable practices and marine conservation. From eco-friendly initiatives to educational programs, the resort actively contributes to the conservation of the Maldives’ unique ecosystem. Kuredu has implemented various eco-friendly practices, including reducing waste, conserving energy, and committing to sourcing local and sustainable products. The resort’s commitment to minimizing its environmental impact is evident in its efforts to protect the delicate balance of the island’s ecosystem. The fabulous Prodivers Kuredu Dive Center is actively involved in marine conservation initiatives, such as coral planting programs and marine life monitoring. Guests have the opportunity to engage in responsible tourism by participating in conservation activities and gaining insight into the importance of preserving the underwater world.

A stay at Kuredu Island Resort is not just a vacation; it’s an immersive journey to a tropical paradise that perfectly combines luxury, adventure and sustainability. In terms of cost, Kuredu is very reasonable and we have found that the most beneficial package is to opt for the “All Inclusive” package. From the moment you arrive in this jewel of the Maldives, the azure waters and lush landscapes envelop you with a feeling of serenity and enchantment. Whether you choose to bask in the luxury of overwater bungalows, embark on exciting nautical adventures, savor international and Maldivian flavors or simply relax at the spa, Kuredu offers a tailor-made experience for every traveler.
