With the Ultimate All-Inclusive concept, your stay is absolutely carefree. All meals, spa treatments, activities and water sports, daily excursions, and even diving are included. Villas and beach suites are generously-sized (86-159 sqm.); 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. All your meals – and more – are included. 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. The resort hosts one of the Maldives' best PADI dive centres, and the house reef provide fascination for snorkellers.

As a family we have been lucky enough to visit many places on the globe. I can honestly say that I have never felt emotional at the end of any of my holidays but the Maldives and the Centara Grand got me fighting back the tears! I simply did not want to go home. The house reef

Hi, we stayed in a beach villa so can't answer the jacuzzi question. The island is small so no time at all to get to all the restaurants. I think the ultimate all inclusive includes a few trips but the top shelf alcohol is still chargeable (check with resort as not sure). It's not just for honeymooners, there were a few families there as well but never seemed crowded. We used the domestic flight and speedboat and the transfer times and connections were great, but this may take longer depending on arrival at Male so if you can afford it i would go seaplane transfer.

Dear 405aliona, Thanks for the question. We only offer one package in the resort named Ultimate All Inclusive (UAI). The full details of this inclusions should be with your booking agent or you may reach out to our Reservations department. The Club upgrade too can be done with your agent or with our reservations department. Kind regards, Riaan

"Beach Villa on the South Beach"
"Over water villas have stunning views and few bugs"
"We loved the beach family villa with a private pool. Close to the island, close to water and close to shade and services."
"Get an over water villa you can’t beat the experience of stepping straight from your deck into the ocean."
"We had the Sunset Villa Room with private plunge pool and access to the ocean. Great for sunsets but no sun in the morning."
