Stayed here on my second trip to the Maldives. This resort may not be as big, flash, modern and seemingly luxurious as some others in the Maldives but then again it doesn't need to be. The Grand Centara is smaller and intimate and though great for families if you are not with children it doesn't seem over run with them.... More

We have returned the fifth time to the little paradisiac island of Centara, and the relaxed feeling and the magic atmosphere of this place came back immediately once we got out of the sea plane. The welcoming staff and the friendly manager, the delicious food in the three restaurants, feeling at ease in the spa, snorkelling in the clear ocean... More

This is our third visit to this Island and following my major surgery earlier this year as a family we needed a relaxing holiday, so we were a little nervous to be notified that refurbishment was underway on the island.

I'm still in awe of this beach resort. It's class and elegance makes you enjoy maldives more. We stayed for a day tour and had access to the resort facilities. Aside from the beautifully architectured resort, the people are so friendly. Staff will make you comfortable and really serve you with hospitality. Unlimited liquors on the bar and included snacks...
