An emerald jewel in the turquoise Maldivian waters. Acres of luxuriant vegetation. Spectacular beaches tapering into an endless sandbank.

Wander the narrow winding paths lined with thick foliage that snake their way across the island. Gaze up into the ancient banyan tree and spot the cranes nesting in the topmost branches.

On this stunning Maldives island resort, you can stroll along sandy white beaches and dip your toes in the water to cool off on a balmy day. Spend leisurely hours exploring the vibrant reefs or an afternoon of extravagance at the spa. Indulge in dining and wining experiences to suit your every desire.

Set in Rasdhoo Atoll, on one of 5 islands located in this tiny archipelago, Kuramathi island 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 would rather indulge in sensual spa therapies or spend an afternoon exploring the vibrant reefs, there is literally something for everyone.

The Rasdhoo Divers team, under the Anglo-Austrian management of Instructor trainers, Matt Berry and Helmuth Steuber has been providing exciting, but safe dives for adventurous Kuramathi guests amongst the amazing marine life and warm waters of the Indian Ocean, since 1994. Our experienced, multi-lingual dive team provides a friendly and professional service to our guests and our enthusiastic instructors will inspire beginners to discover this amazing liquid world while learning to dive with SSI or PADI. Experienced divers will also find challenging dives with many types of sharks, mantas, turtles, rays, napoleons, barracuda, trevally and tuna as well as many of the smaller, but no less interesting inhabitants of the reef.

Kuramathi is blessed by having an amazing Hammerhead Shark Point a mere eight minutes away by boat – one of the few remaining places in the world where you can still see these magnificent creatures.

Comfort and convenience for diving guests is assured with fast, modern dive boats that reach more than 20 local dive sites in an average boat ride of just 15 minutes. Our local Rasdhoo atoll trips are supplemented by half day and full day trips to dive some of the best sites in neighbouring North Ari atoll.

Our knowledgeable team is complemented by the resident marine biologist and the Eco Centre where you can find out everything you want to know about marine life. We also provide nitrox for free to offer divers that extra safety margin and we are well-supported by the Kuramathi Medical Centre and Hyperbaric Chamber.
