Just returned from our second trip to Centara. We have stayed at 9 different Maldive Islands and this ranks as the best. The management team and staff are exceptional. We were treated like VIP's from the moment we arrived until we left. All guests receive outstanding service with a genuine smile from a happy and attentive team. Nothing is too... More

Just returned from 9 nights at Centara Grand and wish I had booked for longer. I thought I would get bored sitting on a sun bed with nothing much to do....how wrong I was, we never sat still. The resort was just what it said in the brochure and more, we could not fit everything in. We only booked a... More

This was our first trip to the Maldives and we were totally delighted with what we found. The resort itself is a tropical paradise with wonderful marine life everywhere to see. The beaches were beautiful, with soft white sand and we often had them completely to ourselves. We stayed in a Deluxe Family Villa and taking our 3 year old,... More

I write this review on our last day of a 10 day holiday. For myself, my husband and our 13 year old daughter, it has been another blissful experience. We have visited the Island three times now and we will definitely be returning! In my opinion this island has the best house reef in the area, the variety of sea... More

The beauty of this Paradise Resort is extremely breath taking, the attentiveness, professional and friendly staff including the GM is second to none. The huge and unique water villas is very eye catching, plus the snorkelling underneath is magical. You will never get wrong to plan your next holiday destination to this Paradise Jewel of Maldives.

We have recently returned from spending two weeks on Centara Grand Island Resort. We booked with Virgin Holidays here in the UK and our flights were operated by Emirates. This meant a five hour wait outbound and inbound in Dubai, which makes for a very long journey. Previously we have only ever had direct flights. Upon arrival on Centara, check... More

Why did I choose this island? I wanted the best combination of house reef and family-friendly style that didn't make me cringe every time I had a drink/meal. This island hit the mark better than our previous experience at Iru Fushi. The snorkeling off our beach was impressive, live coral, loads of fish, and a drop-off just an easy swim... More

Allow me to comment on this resort before sharing the tips to avoid disappointment; from not being able to dine in a specific restaurant to not being able to enjoy the complimentary spa treatment! Resort's a bit rundown, much to our disappointment. Our shower door creaks so loudly we were sure it's going to fall off the hinges each time... More
