We spent three nights at Centara Grand Island Resort in mid June. Upon arrival in Male we located the hotel desk and were escorted to the domestic terminal, where the representative assisted us in checking in for the short 20 minute onward flight (operated by FlyMe). We had to wait more than a couple of hours before the flight departed... More

We were greeted by a host of staff members to the island after a fantastic seaplane flight which offered an aerial view of the islands and atolls of the Maldives. The greeting and introduction to prominent staff members and the sheer warmth of the greeting left us in no doubt right at the beginning that this was truly something special.... More

We waited for 2 or 3 hours for the seaplane at the very basic airport. the seaplane ride was unfortunate and incredibly uncomfortable. There is no A/C... More
