    One of the best Island on Maledives
    One of the best islands in the Maldives. From the service to the food, drinks to the house reef - a holiday that leaves nothing to be desired. We would love to come back.

    10 stars if we could!!
    It was a most excellent stay, in such beautiful surroundings, making the celebration of our Golden Wedding Anniversary very special not least as we had not booked any special package. The staff took special care of us to ensure we had a very memorable time. Thank you especially to Nalin for your thoughtfulness, Ibrahim who looked after our villa (47) and created the most wonderful artwork in our room on at least 4 occasions (leaving us with the dilemma of where to sleep one night as we didn't want to spoil the beautiful creation he had made on our bed!!!!!!!), of Hassan who took such care to ensure the 2 dive experiences were enjoyed - so much encouragement, of Mitchel and Ashik who looked after us and waited on us at the Reef restaurant and the singer, whose name we failed to note, who sang for us on various occasions and made us feel very special. We were, and still are, overwhelmed by the attention we received and the graciousness in everything that was done for us. In addition, we particularly enjoyed snorkelling on the house reef nearly every day. It was just magical being able to swim among the beautiful fish, so many varieties (and a turtle) and at such close quarters. Something never experienced before. Everyone was warm and welcoming and from start to finish our time on Centara Grand will be a highlight for us. We are so thankful that we chose Centara Grand as the place to celebrate this special time in our married lives. Thank you for all that you did. If we could we would give you 10 stars!!

    What an Amazing place to stay, Food, staff and facilities are exactly what you imagine when you think Maldives. We Did all the tours and fun activities and still relaxed. The Fishing charter was very expensive and they only had one rod for four people to jig with but we still got A yellow fin Tuna which they cooked for us.

    Maldives!!!
    This was our first overseas family holiday with Children aged 2, 5 & 7 and the experience we had at Centra was nothing short of perfection in our eyes! The kids had the most amazing holiday and that was largely due to the wonderful service we experienced, mainly through out the Reef Restaurant and Coral Bar. The staff at Reef during our buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner made the experience very special for our Children, so much to the fact that they created a nice farewell message on a table for us and when one of the the young waiters came to say good bye to our boys, our eldest was brought to tears as he was very to sad to be leaving and felt as if he created a great friendship with the waiter. The snorkeling on the house reef around the entire island was memorizing and I can only imagine would be very hard to beat. If you love the ocean then I highly recommend staying here with your family! It was a very special holiday for our family and one we will cherish forever, thank you so much to the entire team, we will be sure to return one day

    Our 25th Wedding Anniversary
    Our holiday at the Centara Grand at the Maldives was one of the best and memorable holidays that we have ever experienced. We stayed for 7 nights but would love to have had 10 nights, we didn’t want to leave. We definitely want to come back as the entire experience was amazing. For those that wanted to do nothing and relax as well as this for those wanting to be adventurous and venture out for experiences the resort catered for all types of guests.

    Fantastic stay in an island paradise
    We had a fantastic time at Centara grand. Highlight was the spa and the house reef-there are fish everywhere around the island. And the spa had some fantastic attention to detail that made our stay most relaxing.

    Amazing experience at Centara Grand
    Centara Grand boasts crystal-clear waters, white sandy beaches, and lush vegetation, making it a perfect retreat for relaxation and indulgence. From overwater bungalows to underwater restaurants, it offers a range of accommodations and activities, including snorkeling, diving, and spa treatments. However, it's essential to research specific islands to ensure they meet your preferences in terms of amenities, activities, and ambiance. Overall, a visit to an island in the Maldives promises an unforgettable tropical getaway in a breathtaking setting.

    A Trip to paradise.
    This was a dream holiday. From the moment we stepped onto the Island the service we recieved was exceptional. Our room, the sunset pool villa, had every facility you coud wish for. The room boy came in twice a day and the room was left smelling clean and fresh. The food in the resturants was to a high standard. We really enjoyed the buffet resturant - Reef. Unlike a lot of buffet resturants the food was always fresh and hot. A good selection was available but it was not overdone resulting in the high standard. But most of all the location was breathtaking white sands and blue seas, We snorkelled every day from the steps of our villia. As the Island has its own reef so there is an abundance of colourful wildlife in the sea. The resort has an aura of peace and tranquillity. Amazing holiday. Would love to come back. A big thankyou to ALL the staff who made our stay so memorable.

    Overall experience
    It was a great time spending here, hospitality was at it best. Breathtaking location and memorablia experience. But departure process should be improved, where atleast 2 hour's before they should drop to airport, we were dropped 5 min earlier to close the boarding gate. We were about to miss the flight, insane

    Excellent place to relax
    All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The resort is small but beautifull, the food and drinks on grand all inclusive is worth the extra (I wouldn’t bother with club). I am bad at remembering names but the guys at the coral bar were excellent and will always find time to have a chat. The Thai restaurant is ok but then I have had the same quality in the UK. azzuri mare was very hit and miss on service but food is nice. The snorkelling by the dive centre was excellent. We went on the whale shark trip and we’re lucky enough to see one.

    A wonderful island with amazing staff and superb food
    Staff members are so friendly and positive, everything is super clean, the green areas are very well maintained and the villas and overwater villas are terrific. It's a pity that the resort can't be reached by speedboat from Male for a lower price than the overpriced waterplanes. Otherwise everything top!
