My partner and I stayed at the Centara Grand Island Resort on recommendation from friends who honeymooned here. Wow what an amazing place!! We arrived by sea plane which is a must. One thing that totally made the holiday for us was the "Island Club"! If you can afford it, do it! We had the club to ourselves the majority... More

When somewhere grabs your heart it is very difficult to stop going back, and with my family and a fair few friends we were lucky enough to return to Centara Grand during October 2014.

We stayed here for a week in December. We stayed in the beach villa which was nice but dated. It also didn't have a nice section of beach in front of it like other villas had. We were right near where the boats come and go so a little noisy. It was however right near the island club. We decided... More
