Kuramathi Island Resort
About the hotel
Set in Rasdhoo Atoll, on one of 5 islands located in this tiny archipelago, Kuramathi offers a naturally Maldivian holiday experience, with unique twists to suit everyone. Whether you are one half of a couple on a romantic getaway or part of a big family seeking to enjoy quality time together, whether you prefer undersea activities to overwater, whether you would rather indulge in sensual spa therapies than play a game of outdoor tennis, there is literally something for everyone. Discover the Maldives at its best. Relax, get comfortable and enjoy the beautiful island: sun, sand, surf, mouth-watering food, range of villas to suit all budgets, diverse facilities and, of course, welcoming and friendly service that the Maldives is known for.

The island is over 1.8km long, with acres of luxuriant vegetation surrounded by spectacular beaches tapering into an endless sandbank.
