I have recently returned from a weeks stay in the Centara Grand and I cannot speak highly enough about this hotel.

We're not really beach holiday people but this week at Centara was a perfect place to relax and unwind... Yes there are a few gripes you could make which many of the other reviewers have highlighted however if you're in need of relaxing from your day-to-day busy life schedule then this is the place. The sandy walkways meant we could... More

Am lucky to have visited a number of other hotels in the Maldives and this is easily the best all Inclusivefor families. Excellent rooms, fantastic food (too good as my extra post holiday kilos are showing!) and the brilliant family friendly service that Thai brands are know for. Everywhere we were treated with kindness and care, from the waiter who... More

We stayed for our 25th wedding anniversary at the beginning of March. I cannot recommend this island and resort highly enough. We upgraded to The Club and were so thankful we did as the staff were amazing and the food out of this world.

We had to fly with a seaplane (nice experience) from Male to the hotel, where we were personally greeted by the management of the hotel. This was a nice gesture and we immediately felt welcome. We booked a water villa with a great view (sunset villa). The a/c was a bit noisy, but we were told that it will be... More

We couldn't rave enough about our holiday to the Centara Grand ! Staff and service were outstanding, restaurants amazing (although we preferred the Italian), best buffet restaurant we have had in an All Inclusive holiday ! Only downfall was having to come home ! Brilliant, can't wait to return !!!
