Kuredu – More Than Your Dream Holiday Resort
Every time we travel, be it for leisure, business or any other reason, we are part of a vital global movement that forges friendships, boosts understanding of cultures and enables economies to flourish – tourism. 27th of September marks World Tourism Day, a day on which we recognize the positive contributions that global tourism makes to the world’s economic, cultural, political and social life. As the Maldives’ second largest resort, fulfilling around 28,000 people’s dream holiday dreams each year, Kuredu not only makes its guest happy, but also generates socio-economic opportunities on the local and national levels.
For already 28 years, Kuredu Island Resort & Spa has been a catalyst of many positive developments in the Lhaviyani Atoll and wider; the resort has been bringing job security and regular income to many families and helped numerous students attain their degrees in hospitality by providing scholarships. A strong sense of obligation to give back to the community and a dedication to practice philanthropy whenever possible make Kuredu a well respected resort, one that walks the walk as evidenced by helping thalassaemic patients, fundraising through the numerous charity events (‘Walk for Life – Walk for Charity‘), generous donations to the Kudakudhinge Hiya orphanage and many more good deeds.
For cultural immersion, traditional boduberu rhyhtms sweep through the island breeze, Maldivian dishes at the buffet are there to spice things up, and Kuredu’s Maldivian team members – the friendliest bunch you will ever come across!
Kuredu is well aware that the increasing tourism calls for environment protection measures; the resort is one of the pioneers and role models in sustainable practices aimed at lessening the impact on the fragile environment (such as solar panels, water desalination and bottling plant, eco-friendly laundry solutions, ocean conservation).
And as much as we often try to talk you into booking a once-in-a-lifetime escape, it is incredible to see that Kuredu is much more than a dream holiday destination – it’s an undertaking that touches the lives of thousands of people in the best possible way. Tourists and locals alike will agree that Kuredu is an irreplaceable jewel in the crown of the Maldives’ resorts.
