Kuramathi Island Resort

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.  Relax, get comfortable and enjoy the beautiful island: sun, sand, surf, mouth-watering food, diverse facilities and, of course, welcoming and friendly service.

Kuramathi is located 56 kilometres west of the Male’ International Airport. The island is over 1.8km long, with acres of luxuriant vegetation surrounded by spectacular beaches tapering into an endless sandbank. Guest villas are scattered around lush gardens, facing secluded areas of long beaches or poised over water. Many areas of the island remain untouched, inviting guests to leisurely stroll along deserted beaches or through virgin vegetation.
