All I wanted for my honeymoon was an over the water hut! I got just that and more. This was more than I could have ever imagined it to be. Wonderfully attentive staff, great food, peace and quiet, good drinks, great pool, my first scuba diving experience and more. The room was spectacular right on the water, just step off... More

The Maldives is obviously an amazing place to visit but is also generally very expensive so naturally you have very high expectations. Our expectations were definitely met at the Centara Grand. The people and the service was outstanding, the location amazing, food was excellent and the snorkeling was as good as it gets. We stayed in a sunset ocean pool... More

We spent 4 days in a 2 bd 2 bath beach front villa. It was nothing short of spectacular from the view to the staff. Every request was sorted with graciousness and a smile. Would recommend to anyone with a thirst for a water based 5 star holiday. All inclusive was fabulous .. Kids were 100% happy all the time... More

We spent a thoroughly relaxing time with our two young children in Centara Grand. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all great with our children. The daily fish feeding at 6pm was a highlight of the holiday as it was spectacular seeing the large stingray and reef sharks coming in for their food, whilst enjoying a... More

We are currently at Centara Grand for our honeymoon (9 nights) and have had the time of our lives so far!
