Kurumba Maldives wins Luxury Family Beach Resort award at World Luxury Hotel Awards
Kurumba Maldives has won the Luxury Family Beach Resort award the 2017 World Luxury Hotel Awards.
The global award was presented to the resort at the 2017 World Luxury Hotel Awards gala held at the Kulm Hotel St Moritz in Switzerland on December 2.
At last year’s edition of the awards, Kurumba was named Best Luxury Family All-Inclusive Hotel in the Maldives.
Kurumba became the very first resort in the Maldives when it opened its doors in 1972.
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. The Maldivian hosts prepared meals informally. Today, the resort is still Maldivian owned and managed.
Kurumba is set on a tropical island in the North Male Atoll, conveniently located a brief 10-minute speedboat ride away from the country’s main airport.
Kurumba draws on its proud history, charismatic personality and heartfelt service, to offer compelling and diverse experiences amidst a stunning island setting. The resort offers an array of eight styles of accommodation, ranging from comfortable Superior Rooms to the spacious Royal Residence, spread amongst the island’s lush tropical gardens with easy access to the beach.
With eight different restaurants and four bars to choose from, Kurumba Maldives will charm you with its unparalleled choice of dining experience and a wide range of recreation activities and entertainment, all the while maintaining idyllic spaces of relaxation to create the perfect balance for a holiday in paradise; perfect for honeymooners and family alike.
