What we say

Centara Grand Island

Have you always wanted to be deserted with luxuries with your beloved? Don't we all have unrealistic dream like that? Well this one might actually come true at the Centara Grand Island...

Picture this: You're on a deserted island with your loved one, but you're not in want of anything. Food and drink is aplenty. Is it a dream? Certainly not! This is what you get when you stay at Centara Grand Island Resort and Spa Maldives and opt for a day out on the nearby island of Bodu Finolhu.

In fact, the resort comes highly recommended by Strictly Come Dancing star, Bruno Tonioli who spent a vacation there and emerged completely rejuvenated and ready to dance again!

When they say all inclusive, they really mean everything you could possibly want... The resort offers a premium all-inclusive vacation experience from champagne breakfasts to all-day dining and sunset cocktail parties and has been recognized as a Top All-Inclusive Resort at the Traveller's Choice Awards.

Centara Grand Island
Where to retire after indulging too much..

Located in the South Ari Atoll this gorgeous property includes 112 beachfront suites with Duplex accommodation and over water villas that lead into the lagoon.

The Beachfront Pool Villas are close to the lagoon while the Deluxe Family Water Villas are unique to the Maldives. The latter have been built especially with children in mind with bunk beds for two kids along with video games and a safety lock to the terrace.

The Luxury Sunset Water Villas come with spacious terraces to enjoy a fabulous Indian Ocean Sunset.

No worries....

Kids are in their element here; there's a Kids' Pool, Kids' Club and supervised Camp Safari. And those teens who feel they're just to cool for school have the E-Zone Entertainment Zone where they can get lost in games and entertainment that only they understand and love.

For the adventurous young ones, there's also the Bubble Maker option that introduces kids to diving in less than 6 feet of water. Super cool!

For the Adults...

You can also de-stress with a shoulder and head massage as Tonioli did and loved! Or put your feet up for a traditional foot massage. The oceanfront Spa Cenvaree is a haven of healing with therapies inspired by Thai traditions.

The Maldivian Signature massage is a must-try as it fuses acupressure, Ayurvedic movements, Deep tissue, Shiatsu and Lomi lomi. Ah....bliss! Then there's also a fitness centre, tennis court, volleyball court and...the PADI Dive Centre. Dive!!! The resort is surrounded by an awesome House Reef. The ocean is fabulous and they have some great diving courses such as the Adventure Diver Course, the Advanced Open Water Dive and the Rescue Diver Course. There is also a shipwreck dive site.

The resort is the first in the South Ari Atoll to be awarded Green Fins certification, a programme of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Reef-World Foundation that recognises environmentally responsible diving. In addition, try a Snorkeling lesson or a windsurfing lesson. For more fun, do some Sunset Fishing, take a Sunset Cruise or go on a Local Island Discovery Tour. For the more discerning travellers, The Island Club Lounge, exclusive to Island Club guests, is replete with separate swimming pool, dining, dedicated service and private check-in and check-out.

Two swimming pools make for some good relaxation.

Centara Grand Island
Eat your Fill

All-day dining is available at the Reef where live cooking stations and culinary theatre produce some fantastic dishes.

Overlooking the lotus pond is Lotus that serves authentic Thai cuisine with a modern twist.

Set over the lagoon, Azzuri Mare is the place for Italian cuisine and fresh seafood complemented by fine wines. Word is that the Chef at Azzuri Mare used to work at the Four Seasons in Milan so his culinary masterpieces speak for themselves. In fact, the Cannelloni with Crab meat is to die for, as are the desserts. Simply- wow!
For thirst-quenchers at any time of the day and night, Aqua, the resort's overwater bar is the popular venue.

For greater relaxation, don't leave your suite or villa- just order in! A selection of yummy international dishes await your tasting. There's also the Sundowners party where delectable tapas are served up in a friendly ambience. The resort is also a popular romance destination as it affords privacy and relaxation. Centara Grand Island is the lap of luxury and so many guests keep returning over again because they get their money's worth.

We will leave no leaf unturned
to serve you to your satisfaction.
