Surrounded by a stunning house reef that is a kaleidoscope of color for snorkelers, the five-star Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives is a barefoot paradise. With the Ultimate All-Inclusive concept, your stay is absolutely carefree meaning that everything is included from the moment you arrive at Velana International Airport in Malé.
Daily champagne breakfast at Reef Restaurant, lunch and dinner at any of the three restaurants, daily credit to redeem at Spa Cenvaree or against dives at the PADI Dive Centre (up to 3 dives per guest per week, limited to one dive a day), and daily excursions such as whale shark boat trips, sunset cruises and sunset fishing, are all included.
Villas and beach suites are generously-sized (86-159 square meters); the over-water villas enjoy their own sundeck with steps down to the multi-hued coral reefs. Villas for families have bunk beds in a children’s area, and you can also enjoy the option of an over-water villa with plunge pool.
The island has the ideal family itinerary: 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. Anyone in need of some deep relaxation can enjoy the daily spa treatments at Spa Cenvaree, yoga sessions, or simply laze beachside.
Besides water sports and one of the best PADI dive centers in the Maldives, the resort’s house reef and lagoon provide fascination for snorkelers, and just off the reef there is a dedicated shipwreck that offers easy diving and a close-up view of turtles and whale sharks, manta rays, and surgeonfish. All these features ensure guests to the resort will enjoy their stay.
