Choosing an Island in the Maldives can be tricky, when nearly all of the 4+ and above have mostly positive reviews and say similar things. Not a beach holiday person - get bored, so it was more to give into the MRS....we chose Kuramathi, as its one of the larger islands, lots of restaurants, abundant space for a stroll etc,... More

What to say?! Stayed for 4nights first week of July in standard garden villa on Basic All Inclusive. Everything exceeded our expectations, except the food which was provided in the buffets on the basic all inclusive. It was by no means bad, just average, especially considering the wide variety of other restaurants on the island. Next time we would definitely... More

My wife and I have just returned from an amazing honeymoon on Kuramathi Island. I couldn't fault it at all. It was perfect! Make sure you do the 'select all' inclusive package. This allows you to eat at any of the five excellent restaurants. The food is sublime; much better than we were expecting. It also means that booze, including... More

Where do I start. Well first things of you are already committed to going you will love it. I think the combination of staying somewhere very luxurious in Maldives last year and a series of negative incidents have probably clouded my feelings on this one.
