Resort Description

Located in the northern part of the Lhaviyani Atoll, Kuredu Resort & Spa is the only resort on this medium sized island (1.8km x 325m), which is surrounded by a beautiful lagoon with cristal clear waters and long stretches of white sandy beaches. Whatever type of holiday you are looking for – romantic, diving, relaxing or even culinary exploration – this 387-room, 4-star resort is one of the best value for money in the Maldives.

Prodivers has a it's Maldivian base there and a large operation with 8 diving dhonis and an average of 14 instructors on staff speaking 8 different languages. Kuredu is perfect for beginners and experienced divers alike. The numerous dive sites offer everything from colourful coral reefs, dazzling schools of fish, and up close and personal encounters with sea turtles. Friendly reef sharks can be seen cruising the waters around Kuredu and, if lucky, you might even spot a dozen Manta rays or so. 

Getting to the island from Male airport is a easy with a scenic 40 minutes seaplane flight.

Explore diving around the Kuredu Resort & Spa

What to see

Amongst the caves and overhangs you’ll see different species of moray eel, nudibranchs, scorpionfish, and orange, nocturnal soldier fish with big, black eyes. They can be seen swimming upside down in the dark overhangs.

The soft corals are colorful, and some of the hard corals look like a French horn's bell. Expect reef sharks, turtles and rays, but the wet season is more favorable for manta sightings.

As with most of the Maldives – the variety of marine life in Lhaviyani will keep you busy. Add a shipwreck to your experience, and you might need a spare pencil to complete your dive logs.

Dive Center


  • Prodivers voted BEST DIVE CENTER IN THE MALDIVES in 2018
  • With almost 50 dive sites on offer, variety is the key theme. From calm and relaxed shallow dives, to adrenalin fuelled drift dives or channel crossing, the choice is yours
  • Boat-trips take between 10 and 60 minutes
  • Independent diving available on the house reef and night dives possible every night.
  • Regular full-day, early-morning, lunchtime and night dive boat excursions
  • Fully stocked snorkel & diving equipment rental section, complete with underwater digital cameras.


With only a handful of resorts in the Lhaviyani Atoll, Kuredu Resort & Spa enjoys a prime location in one of the Maldives’ most abundant atolls. After a short seaplane flight overlooking the turquoise lagoons and coral reefs you step into a barefoot paradise that has been capturing hearts for 25 years.

How to get there

Transfers from Male's Ibrahim Nasir International Airport are organized by the resort based on your international flights. Here's what you can expect:

Typically, upon arrival in the Maldives, after clearing Immigration and Customs formalities, you will exit the Customs area and enter the Arrivals Hall, proceed to the nearby Kuredu Resort counter or directly to the TMA (Trans Maldivian Airways) seaplane check-in terminal on the right hand side.

After your seaplane check-in, you will be transferred to the TMA Terminal, about a 10 minute shuttle bus ride, where you can wait in the main lounge or the private Kuredu Lounge before a scheduled seaplane transfer departs for Kuredu. The seaplane to Kuredu is normally scheduled to depart within one to two hour of all guests clearing Immigration and Customs.

Seaplanes only fly during daylight hours only, i.e. between about 06:00 and 18:00. Guests arriving on an international flight which cannot connect to the last seaplane of the day to Kuredu (usually departs no later than about 16:00, but please check with TMA if your arrival flight was delayed) may choose to overnight in nearby Male’ at the Champa Central Hotel, or elsewhere. A hotel booking can be arranged by Kuredu.

For your departure from the Maldives, guests can only connect to international flights departing after 09:00. The last flight departure from Kuredu is around 16:00.
