Message from the General Manager – September 2023
Greetings from Kuredu! It’s been wonderful to see happy guests extending their summer by enjoying a relaxing break in the Maldives. If you’re one of those warm weather souls who wishes that summer would last forever, here at Kuredu, we can certainly help to make it last a little bit longer, or even bring you the feeling of summer when autumn takes hold at home.
You can almost feel the excitement here as the dive centre prepares for the onset of manta season. Of course, it’s not only mantas that grace our waters, we are very fortunate to have an abundance of marine life on the reefs around Kuredu, including the largest population of green sea turtles. As part of our marine life sustainability program, we encourage our guests to follow the protocols and avoid any physical contact with sea creatures of any kind. Turtles especially are protected by law and touching or chasing them is strictly prohibited. Please do pop into the Marine Center or Dive Center during your next visit to find out more about respectful and sustainable encounters with our iconic marine life.
This month we will once again join the global environmental event of ‘Clean Up the World’ alongside our colleagues at Prodivers. The ocean currents carry all sorts of debris but it’s mostly discarded plastic that we see washed up on the shores of the islands. We conduct regular clean ups with items washed ashore collected daily by our dedicated team, so we don’t expect to find a huge amount on the actual event day itself, however it does serve as a reminder to us all to minimize the use of plastics where possible.
Amongst the resort team, festive cheer is being prepared for with an entertaining festive season just around the corner- I hope to be able to share it with you. Don’t leave booking until the last minute though as the festive season and following few months of high season are very popular, with availability reducing by the day.
Kuredu is a resort for all; an outstanding choice of villas and different areas of the island that each has a very different atmosphere ensures that no matter what you’re looking for in a Maldives holiday, you will find it here. Families with fun-loving children, couples looking to celebrate romance, solo travellers and groups of friends will all find their haven at Kuredu.

With very best wishes,
