Kuredu is an island where the diving sits on your doorstep. The fine white sand gives way to an aquamarine house reef. Perched in the northern tip of the Lhaviyani Atoll and just a 40 minute scenic seaplane transfer from Male, the resort focuses on personal service and laid back fun. Its northern atoll location, great diving and combo of dining and relaxation are just some of the reasons Kuredu has been a popular choice throughout the years.
There are 6 different room grades to chose from in Kuredu - garden bungalows, beach bungalows, beach villas, jacuzzi beach villa, sangu water villas and the sultan pool villas! If you are going to spend all day out diving or hitting the beach, we suggest either the garden bungalows or beach bungalows. These are great value with all the facilities you could need. If you are spending more time on the island, why not upgrade to the beach villa or "O" beach villa! The O resort is an adult only resort within Kuredu with its own dedicated restaurant and pool. Indulge in your own private jacuzzi in the jacuzzi beach villas or O jacuzzi beach villas. The sangu water villas are perched right on the edge of the Indian ocean with the most magnificent views of all. Watch baby rays race over the reef from your private veranda. The Sangu pool villas have their own private pool, set in lush gardens. All of the rooms are set up with double beds as standard but a second bed can be arranged for twin shares - please make sure you request this at the time of booking. There is free wi-fi throughout.
Kuredu boasts a number of buffet and a la carte restaurants, 6 bars, the Sai Kotari tea house and Sangu Wine Cellar. And with all inclusive as standard on our package, the week will flow stress free. You will be designated a restaurant on arrival (depending on room grade) but there are also a la carte options. The on site spa is a sanctuary in the heart of the resort. There is even a 9 hole golf course! Splash in the pool or check out the new and improved on site watersports centre, with kit surfing and wind surfing.

As it was our honeymoon we got upgraded to a beach villa - beautiful. Great food and lots of things to do on the island. The outside bathroom was really lovely. We paid extra for the gold all inclusive - would definitely recommend this - you get any cocktails you want, and various other extras such a as a meal in the a la carte restaurant, games of golf and tennis...
