Kurumba Maldives is Maldives' first private island resort and one of its finest. Go barefoot, be served on your white sand beach under coconut trees, dine by the moon and candles or dress for dinner and dance into the morning.

The Kurumba Maldives housereef is home to live coral growing on ancient volcanic mountains and a thousand different variations of stunning fauna - a paradise for divers .
Named after the coconuts that grow in abundance throughout the island, Kurumba Maldives pioneered tourism in the Maldives in 1972. Completely renewed , it re-opened in 2004 as a resort of distinction, class and style and run with panache.

Shaded paths lead from one side of this 48-acre circular island to the other. The white sand beach embracing the island is lapped by crystal clear waters of an azure lagoon, protected by eco-breakwaters of weathered coral.
Kurumba Maldives is classical in design , a unique holiday resort newly built to ancient Maldivian architecture , with graceful meditation pavilions and a calm induced by a succession of ornamental pools. The serenity of the resort is perfectly matched by the uncompromising luxury of its bungalows and villas. Its lush gardens are lovingly raised over years .
