During our recent amazing Maldives trip, we had the chance to stay at the wonderful Movenpick Kuredhivaru. We had a gorgeous overwater villa with a private pool which was absolutely amazing. The island was totally heaven on earth and was sufficiently big to have to impression to be just the two of us. It was seriously the most romantic stay we had ever had! If you want to know more about this perfect place for a romantic experience you are at the right place! In this post, we will give you all the informations about this beautifulresort, how you can go there and our feedback regarding our experience! 

Movenpick Kuredhivaru, a little paradise for a romantic stay in the Maldives

First of all, you need to know that the Movenpick Kuredhivaru is located in the Noonu Atoll, in the Maldives. This island is 45 minutes far from the north of Male international airport by seaplane. You can only reach the island by seaplane because it is too far by boat. We took the company Trans Maldivian Airways to get to the resort, which is the best company in the Maldives. It was our first seaplane flight and it was seriously an amazing experience! Admiring the attols and lagoons from above was a magical experience we will never forget!

The resort

Then, we arrived at the resort, we were welcomed by the adorable staff and we discovered a beautiful and preserved island in paradise. The island is absolutely stunning, as beautiful as in the photos! We were not disappointed. Next, we were escorted by buggy and we discovered our incredibly beautiful overwater villa. The room was really pretty with a modern and minimalist decoration and was really spacious. There was a beautiful bathroom with a shower and a separate bath with a view on the lagoon and also an amazing terrace with a private pool. It is just so perfect for couples and families. The resort is composed by 72 overwater pool villas and 32 beach pool suites.

The restaurants

The resort has 3 different restaurants. The first one is the Bodumas, a 360-degree view of the Indian Ocean who proposes seafood. We are vegan we chose the second one, which is the Latitude 5.5. This restaurant is perfect to have a cocktail/dinner and enjoy the sunset on the beach. It is also a beautiful place to have a romantic moment. The last one is the ONU Marché, the main restaurant, where the breakfast buffet is served and international food for lunch and dinner. The breakfast was really good, there were delicious various fresh fruits, pancakes, french toasts, fresh juices and so on. Also, The Movenpick proposes a coffee and wine lounge. And at 4pm you can enjoy a degustation of chocolate and candies. It is very fun to do!

There are many amazing activities to do at Movenpick Kuredhivaru

Diving and snorkelling

The island is surrounded by an incredible beautiful reef. You can of course go diving and snorkelling. The resort gives you all the snorkelling gear for free (mask, fins and life jacket). If you are lucky enough, you can see dolphins, turtles, rays and maybe sharks! We had the chance to see dolphins and a stingray. But for sure, you will see incredible beautiful colorful fishes and amazing corals! The price for diving is approxiamtevly 150$ per person including the material and the boat tranfer.  


There is a watersport center where you can borrow stand-up paddle, kayaks and windsurf for free. For the motorized water sports, you can rent a jetski with a supplement.


There is a also a beautiful spa at the other side of the island. This part looks really quiet, perfect to have a relaxing treatment!

Relax in your villa 

You can, of course, enjoy your beautiful villa, stay by the pool or relax in your terrace! All the overwater villas have direct access and view on the ocean lagoon. And seriously, nothing can beat to wake up to this view and sleep on the water!

Our feeling about Movenpick Kuredhivaru

It was one of the most romantic experiences we have ever had. Not only because it was in the Maldives, but because this place is perfect for a romantic trip or for a honeymoon. 

First of all, there is not many people and the island is big enough to feel alone. And everything is done to make you feel just the two of you. Also, the staff is adorable. They are always trying to help you and to make sure you having an amazing stay.

Also, the overwater villas are absolutely gorgeous and enough spacious compared to the other resorts in the Maldives. In addition to that, you have the famous transparent floor in the entrance of your room, so you can admire fishe from your villa!. We have spent lot of time in front of that to see fishes swiming just below us. It was amazing!

We had a wonderful stay and we will never get bored in this place, there is always something to try, that’s what we loved. 

To conclude, we highly recommend this place if you are looking for a place for your future honeymoon, the Movenpick Kuredhivaru is probably the perfect place for you! We think this seriously is one of the best quality/price ratios in the Maldives.
