We arrived at Centara on the 19/4/13 for two weeks. I was a bit nervous after reading some bad reviews. I have to say arriving by speed boat (approx 20 mins) was the beginning of our fabulous experience. We were met of the boat by receptionist she was really friendly and welcomed us to the Centara. We then went to main reception by golf buggy. We were given a cold drink and everything was explained to us about the resort. Then we were driven to our room our luggage was already there. We had booked a premier water bungalow it was fabulous, the view was breath taking. The bungalows are beautiful, spotless and well air conditioned. We went to the oceans restaurant that night it is a buffet restaurant with so much choice the food was glorious. There are three restaurants on the island the oceans, a Thai and an Italian. The oceans was our favourite as they do a themed night every night and there was so much variety.
The spa is fabulous. You need to book early as it gets booked up pretty quick. I had loads of treatments while I was there Nui was my therapist for most of my treatments she is fabulous and a big thank you to her. The only advise I would give to people using this facility is be aware that the treatment time includes getting ready before and after.
My husband done a two day Padi diving course he loved this. A big thank you to the brilliant diving centre staff Ali, Azim, Ahmed and Egor.
Our bungalow was cleaned twice a day in the morning and then in the evening while we were at dinner. A big thank you to Arif who cleaned our room. A big thank you to him. The extra touches Arif done was to decorate our bed turning towels into different shapes and one night adding flowers, was very well appreciated.
A big thanks you to all the staff they are so attentive, really nice and helpful. The oceans staff are amazing.
There are three bars at the resort and they are all really good, comfortable and so relaxing again the staff are all lovely.
We seen the most amazing thing one day. There were two guest struggling in the water (there was a storm the night before, the water was choppy hence no one hardly swimming etc.) two of the house keeping staff took of their shoes and jumped into the water with a life jacket for the guests. It was incredible to see they were definitely unsung heroes.
The only air of caution I would have for anyone in the water bungalows is please be careful of the steps ( there are signs warning of them being slippery), I slipped on them, I did hurt myself. I did not walk down them careful enough.
This is nothing to do with hotel but anyone going to the Maldives especially if you have very fair skin be aware that the sun is very strong so bring lots of high factor sun cream. We brought loads of insect repellent and didn't use it.
A big thank you to the hotel and their amazing staff we are so happy we booked this for our honeymoon and we hope to go back.
