Surrounded by the blue ocean of the South Ari Atoll, and distinctive with its timbered walkways and colonial-style buildings, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives is a barefoot paradise with a palm-fringed beach and shimmering lagoon that offers the perfect island holiday for everyone. With 112 spacious villas set over-water, and suites blending harmoniously with the natural setting, the island has a wealth of activities and superb facilities that makes this an ideal hideaway for couples and honeymooners, or a fun-filled destination for families. The over-water villas enjoy their own sundeck with steps down to the multihued coral reefs. Special villas for families have bunk beds in a children’s area, and you can also enjoy the option of an overwater villa with plunge pool. Champagne breakfasts are served at Reef Restaurant. Lunches and dinners are to be enjoyed at Azurri Mare Italian Restaurant, Suan Bua Thai restaurant or Reef Restaurant. There are two bars on the island. The island offers activities at the age-specific kids’ clubs, water activities like banana boat and tube rides, water sports, and pool games by the children’s pool. There are exceptional opportunities to discover the exotic life of Maldives underwater, with a house reef that is a kaleidoscope of colour for snorkellers, a shipwreck dive site just off the island, and easy access to some of the most famous dive sites in the world.

We've spent a great 7 days in Centara Grand. Excellent location, beautiful beach bungalows, very nice food at Reef restaurant and great staff. The house reef is magnificent - colorful fish, sharks, turtles. Great place for families with kids as well as for couples. My only remark - the additional excursions are a little bit overpriced. We've tried big game fishing and submarine trip - top experience, turtle quest and sunset fishing unfortunately were disappointing due to the lack of turtles and fish. ( only 1-2 turtles seen and 4-5 fish catch) . Thank you, Centara team!

We had the most amazing time here. The island is just beautiful, the staff are fantastic, so friendly and go out of their way, nothing is too much trouble for them. They feel like family by the end of our trip. Senthil was extremely helpful. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the food is incredible. The effort they go to for events is just outstanding. We had our wedding here and stayed for Christmas and it was the most magical experience. Thank you to all the wonderful staff for making our stay and wedding day truly perfect and unforgettable

This was the first time i did scuba diving and the experience could not have been better, stefania was extrememly patient and encouraging. The reef and aquatic life was mesmerising with sharks and sting rays and clown fish. Definitely lived up to my expectation, exceeded it even. Thank you to centara and stefania!

It was a fantastic experience. We did a Scuba diving Beginners course with Sven and Ivan at #Centaragrandmaldives. They were the best instructors you could get. We went 6 mtrs inside water and we could see superb variety of fishes, corals and under sea experiences.
