In addition to guided diving, Prodivers Maldives offers PADI courses, snorkelling, and a seemingly endless list of watersports. No matter what adventure you have in mind, their friendly and helpful staff will be happy to arrange every detail.
Kuredu Island Resort and Spa is the second largest private island property in the Maldives, so it's no surprise that you'll find a stunning variety of services and guest facilities. Each spacious and modern villa comes equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay. Plus, easy access to the island's beaches, shaded jungle paths, and stunning house reef - ideal for independent exploration. Other impressive amenities include outdoor sports grounds and golf, an incredible variety of watersports from kayaking and paddleboarding, to private sailing charters. Plus, easy to arrange excursions including island hopping, beach barbecues, and romantic getaways on a sandbar.
If you're a foodie, you'll love Kuredu Island's dining and drinking establishments, with multiple buffets, casual a la carte restaurants, chic cocktail lounges, and options for fine dining. You can even book a table at neighbouring Hurawalhi Island's incredible underwater restaurant! If you're in need of rest and rejuvenation, don't miss out on the island's award-winning Duniye Spa.

Diving at Kuredu Island Resort
Kuredu Island Resort and Spa proudly hosts Prodivers’ flagship dive centre. This professional dive centre offers a variety of PADI courses on the stunning house reef, plus guided adventures and night dives. Their daily boat trips hit all the best sites in Lhaviyani and Noonu Atolls, including Shipyard and Muda Thila - the busiest manta cleaning station. Whether you're getting certified on this trip or you've got years of experience, you'll love the dive centre's top-quality rental equipment and cameras, patient and friendly international staff, and comfortable custom dive boats. Experienced buddy teams can make the most of their time in the atoll with free nitrox and self-guided diving on the house reef.
Lhaviyani Atoll is one of the Maldives' most popular destinations among scuba divers thanks to its diverse underwater environments. This is the perfect place to try out channel and drift diving or visit a current-swept thila. These exciting sites are perfect for spotting sharks and playful reef manta rays, turtles and more. This resort's location also allows for quick trips to nearby Noonu Atoll, giving guests access to double the dive sites. If you're new to the sport, don't worry, there's plenty of laid-back reef diving in this region, too. The island's house reef plays host to hundreds of coral and fish species, and other sites best suited to beginners are just a few minutes away by boat.
Conservation at Kuredu
The Kuredu Island Marine Biology Center is led by a resident marine biologist and run in close cooperation with Prodivers Maldives. This educational space is dedicated to studying the atoll's ecosystem and sharing the findings with guests. Their programs are passionate and fun, and often held in partnership with Manta Trust and the Olive Ridley Project, two of the region's most prominent and dedicated marine research organisations.
Kuredu Island Resort and Spa's environmentally friendly undertakings continually work to minimise the resort's impact on the Maldives’ fragile ecosystem. Their current initiatives include an extensive system of solar panels powering various parts of the property, on-site desalination and plastic-free water bottling centre, and a large scale recycling initiative.
- If you're hoping to get scuba certified on this trip, Prodivers Maldives’ flagship dive centre might be your best bet.
- Don't forget to pack a nice outfit or two for your nights out in the island's luxurious bars and restaurants.
- Plan at least one day above water for enjoying the Duniye Spa's award-winning massages, bodywork, and couples treatments.
- Manta rays can be seen around the island from September through April, but visit between mid-October and early March for your best chances.
