Travelers' Choice
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 stayed here for 2 weeks and the stay far exceeded our expectations.. We couldn’t have imagined how comfortable we felt here. Stayed with my 3 yr old and my 63 yr old mother. Hotel staff made sure all our requirements were met. All the way from baby meals (Khichdi etc) to Pure Veg home like meals for my mother, they were so good. Chef Francis, Uttam, Arnav did a fab job. Sushito and his team at FnB, PAT From FO, Nino and his team from Housekeeping, Sunny from recreation, Ayesha at Kids Play area were all such lovely people and looked after us so well. Definitely recommended for family and couples alike. It’s a beautiful resort, lovely beach, and great food.

We had the most amazing stay at this lovely resort despite the fact that it was nearly empty due to Covid 19. The staff was outstanding and all of them left us with the impression that they took pride in and enjoyed their work! We especially enjoyed the meals in the Thai restaurant, the food was simply out of this world.
