after coming to facts with the aspect we are spoilt travellers and hard to please, with certain hesitation we booked the Centara resort, as it didn`t look that luxury on photos. However it really was great, all positive comments are doing the resort justice. The service is impeccable, the rooms nice, spacious and clean. We stayed in a family villa...

We stayed at this resort in August 2011 on a belated honeymoon. The good points are the sea plane flight over, great location and some great food. The bad points are the tired looking decor around the island and in our room, stained furniture and very dirty outside seating. The Island is very small as others have said and a...

Positives: restaurant staff were excellent and the all-inclusive buffet was good with excellent variety each day. Snorkelling was amazing with so many beautiful fish. Negatives: transport from male was supposed to be pre-arranged by speedboat but when we arrived we were told we were going by seaplane and we were supposedly overweight because the weight limit was less than advised....

We have just returned from a week in a beach pool villa at Centara Grand. We travelled with our 2 teenage children so needed accomodation big enough for us all. The villa was spacious with a bedroom with twin beds downstairs and an open plan double sleeping area upstairs. If I am very critical it would have been better to...

The staff had thought of every thing from providing a quick airport transfer to the Sea Plane and even a Cake on my Birthday. There was great variety in food. Excursions are very pricey however there is plenty to do on the island with out going on excursions.

My family of 4 stayed in Centara for 7 nights here. Our stay was a very memorable one with - Great food & drinks. We looked forward to the different theme planned for each night to savour the different tastes at the Reef Restuarant. At the Lotus Restuarant (Thai food), we enjoyed the food and the hospitality from the staff...

This was our first trip to the Maldives and after a lot of searching on the internet and looking at the many resorts available, we settled on the Centara. I had read that the Ari Atolls had better snorkelling options and as this was high on our list of experiences I did not want to get it wrong! Well, we...

From End of November to middle of December 2011, my wife and I stayed at the Centara Hotel at the Maldives. We stayed at a beach villa, which was right at the beach, just 10 meters into the water. The villa itself was spacious, with the bedroom on the 2nd floor, the living room and the very spacious bath room...
