About Kurumba Maldives

Kurumba was the very first private island resort in the Maldives when it opened its doors in 1972 in the Indian Ocean archipelago of the Maldives. Opened by four young Maldivians on an uninhabited coconut plantation island in October 1972, Kurumba also marked the beginning of the tourism industry in the country.

Kurumba began with 30 huts built of coral and thatched with coconut leaves; the first guests were barefoot backpackers in search of sand, sea and sun. Furthermore, even today the resort remains Maldivian owned and managed. Kurumba Maldives nestles on a tropical island in the North Male’ Atoll. Which is conveniently accessible by a 10-minute speedboat ride from the airport. Moreover, the resort draws on its proud history, charismatic personality and heartfelt service. Kurumba offers compelling and diverse experiences amidst a stunning island setting.
