In one word - fantastic hotel with perfect reef location. Absolutely amazing staff - competent, helpful, always on duty and keeping you in good mood. We spent 9 days in Centaras and definitely we would recommend this hotel. The serwis is on the highest standard, the reef is beautiful and easy to get from villas. We have visited several hotels in Maldives and undoubtedly Centara is the best place for short or long vacation.

Our second time back in the Maldives and first time at Centarra and we were not disappointed. Stayed in Deluxe overwater villa - totally worth the extra money to stay overwater, the snorkelling was fantastic. We did all inclusive and glad we did - had the choice of several restaurants as well as buffet - all food was amazing - special mention to Alee in Azzuri Mare Restaurant for making our dining experience one to remember, wonderful customer service, by you and your staff. Would recommend 'all inclusive' as this includes all meals, drinks (alcohol, cocktails etc), watersports, tours and day spa. Will be coming back - thank you Centara Grand Resort Maldives

We’ve just come back from an 8 day trip to Centara Grand and cannot fault our holiday experience.
The location was incredible (its the Maldives after all!)
The staff were attentive and friendly and incredibly helpful when it came to creating something simple for our eldest son who has quite a restricted palette!
Our villa (family) was right on the reef so we only had to walk down a few steps to be able to snorkel with the incredible wealth of sea life - fish of every colour, turtles, rays etc
We went on several of the trips which were well organised and fun.
We also made use of the SUPs, snorkels and pedalos.
We also took advantage of a complimentary massage every day which was divine.
Our children (13 & 10) had the most phenomenal holiday, spending most of their day in the water and the rest of the time barefoot in the sand.
I cannot recommend this resort highly enough.

We have spent 4 days in this marevellous atoll in maldive with Ultimate All-Inclusive package.
Everything was perfect. cleaning, staff very kindly, watersport and diving activities, swimming pool straight to the sea with small pool for kids (we have 2 kids 2 and 5 Y/O), kids club where to spend time after beach playing and pool swimming.
The kids where very exited every day. The atoll is small so the kids felt like the "owner of the land" going alla aournd between restourant, and ather facilities.We had a ville with sunset vista where every evening we enjoied the view. We where lucky bacause we had full moon at night so the beach was beautiful with white sand even at night. There's a good chioice of restaurant. The only little issue was that, as italian, we found the kitchen of REEF (self services restaurant) too oriented to thai cusine, event if two time we found pasta at self service. But i think this is a tipical italian prbolem during holiday far from home and not in the tipical italian location: at the end we choose Centara experience even for that: try some differen experience once we are out of italy.
I use to wake up early at the morning and I understand ho may people are involved in the maintenance of the facilities.
Last thanks goes to the reception staff which was very kindly at arrival and at the departure: our kids, which mainly are the reasons of our holiday, where and felt at the centre of all the attention. Thank you very much to all.
