After a long research on "exotic family vacation without burning hole in the pocket" we zeroed in on Kurumba Maldives.

Travelled from Kochi via Colombo to Male. The view as the plane lands at Male airport sets the tone for rest of the trip. Approach with sea on either side of plane...mind blowing. We were greeted by staff from Kurumba at the airport and guided to the waiting boat... just outside the airport ! Welcome drink and towels were provided during the short 10 minute ride. Staff at the reception were extremely attentive and trained, so multiple check ins at the same time....no issue.
We stayed at the superior room....large room for 2 adults and 1 kid....close to reception and restaurants. Walk out of the room you are on the beach.The room was spic and span throughout the stay in spite of the sand we dragged in unintentionally. Bathrooms are the highlight....large indoor and outdoor shower + bathtub.....whichever way you like it. The eating options and activity schedule for the entire week laid out. Though the resort was full there is space for everyone on the beach...never crowded....the reason ? Beach is just one of the entertainment options at Kurumba.

Took snorkeling classes in the pool...picked up the gear and started exploring marine life around kurumba Absolutely safe and like you see it on postcards. Cooking classes, tons of activities for kids, coral gardening, visit to Male or local island, snorkeling and diving excursions....the list goes on.Simply stated if I stay for another week in Kurumba I still may not be able to cover everything!!

Eating options galore. As we had taken all inclusive plan we made it a point to try out all the restaurants. We weren't disappointed. The ambience, the spread, the service all were first class. The passion of staff towards their profession took dining to different level. They went out of the way to make us comfortable.All the bars get a big thumbs up. If something is not available they will get it from somewhere. The evening before we were departing we wanted to have dessert from mediterranean restaurant...but found it closed. One of the staff came to us when we were about to turn back.....and made arrangements to serve us what we wanted. All with a smile .Surely each and every meal will be remembered for a long long time because of this attitude.

Snorkeling with my son in deep sea was the moment of the trip. Few minutes after we jumped from the boat....we realised our state...all at sea. Terrifying but thrilling.
Will be doing it again.

Few tips...take all inclusive option. Peace of mind while enjoying food. Stay for minimum one week. Eat at Japanese and Italian restaurant at least once. Superior room is a great money saving option without compromising on luxury.

Planning for next year's vacation has become very difficult now.....Kurumba has set a new benchmark!

We were in Kurumba in December last year and it was a wonderful experience. Our room was large and airy. The island is small but there are lots of things to explore. Definitely family friendly. Food was amazing- there are 8 restaurants in the resort so we were spoiled for choices.

Excellent hotel! high quality service, great food and nice views! Though it is close to the airport and it may be a bit noisy, the advantages of the hotel trump these inconveniences. The personnel is always very friendly and willing to help. Everything is done by personnel very accurately.
