This was our 3rd visit & we cant wait to return, the management team and staff are amazing, feels like visiting your best friends. The location is extra special especially if you dive or snorkle, the house reef has amazing corals & plenty of fish and the team at Best Dives (located at the resort) provide amazing inwater experiences and...

We were not on our honeymoon but on our way back from Japan, 'breaking the journey' and having a bit of rest and relaxing in the sun. The staff are fabulous and the island was stunning, particularly if you are into snorkelling etc. Three good restaurants, gift shop, two bars, gym etc. Accommodation quite good, right on the beach.

This is my first visit to Maldives, and I chose Centara for its excellent value all inclusive option. I travelled with my dad and we stayed in a deluxe water villa. The room and ammenmities were good, but slightly dated, as such the company is currently partially undergoing renovation. The view onto the corals was spectacular, and the staff were... More

We are currently staying at the resort for our 4th time. Each time it just gets better. We were greeted like great friends and were treated like they really appreciated us returning. There are many other fantastic resorts in the Maldives and we are each time very tempted to try but feel that why change when there truly is nothing... More

We did say we wouldn't go back to Centara after the third time and in hindsight we shouldn't have. After a very long journey we arrived at the local island looking forward to a drink watching the sun set. However they weren't there to meet us. We waited with our 10 year old on the pier in very hot weather... More

We very much enjoyed our stay in the luxury sunset villa with pool. It's over the water and the sunlight and the views are just extraordinary. We particularly liked the large bathroom and two open wardrobes that gave plenty of accessible space. Having your own pool at the waters edge is sheer heaven. The resort is truly a Paradise Place...

We stayed in a Dlx Water Villa (November 2010); just stunning. Beach, sea, nature great/fabulous. While check in, we waited a bit long; after such a long journey, disappointing, but forgot all after I saw the room. Unfortunately variety of the food was not enough, really weak.
