      Transfer from Male airport to the resort was smooth, the resort arranged for the domestic flight and speedboat. The resort is very beautifully build and the water surrounding the resort was crystal clear with wildlife roaming around such as shark and stingray. Room is large with king size bed and full amenities, very luxury and comfortable. Meals are all inclusive and prebooking is require for preference of food type Drinks at bar are inclusive and will never feel thirsty. Many facilities such as water sports and excursions to keep occupied All the staffs were friendly and ready to help. Will definitely come back for the next trip.

      We have been staying in Centara Grand for 6 nights. Decided on an upgrade to a Sunset Water Villa upon arrival which is the perfect decision. The villa was located in the middle of all with splendid sunset views everday. Morning water is crystal blue and clear where you can see variety of sea animals when snorkeling around or even when looking down from the villa. All inclusive plan is spectacular. There are not much options in Maldives providing this. Cruises and watersports activities are included so you would never find it bored there. The food is of high quality and you would not need to add any money to add on unless you want barbecue seafood. Love the lamb chops from the italian rest.Only shortside is that the Teppanyaki is not that good (esp the steak). Overall, I would recommend this resort to families. It might not be a best option for couples as most of the guests there are families and there are a lot of babies and kids, we do not find that as a concern though as a couple.

      Paradise!”
      Excellent villas, food, facilities, activities and service! Truly a paradise! We enjoyed every moment when we were there. We stayed in the beach pool villa as the water villas were booked out. We were not disappointed. The villa was huge with 2 bathrooms and the beach was fairly private with spectacular views of the sunrise. The villa looked exactly like the photos- new and clean. Excellent spread of food and service at the Reef restaurant. The Italian, Thai, and Teppanyaki restaurants were worth trying too. We enjoyed the activities and paid extra to go for a diving trip to the Manta Point. It was the best decision ever! Our dive instructor Lan was excellent, he took care of us and helped us capture professional photos with our gopro. We made bookings for the activities and restaurants before we went, there was no problem at all. Would definitely recommend Centara Grand and we can't wait to go back again!

      Overall Good Experience”
      It was an overall good experience however, there could be a few improvements. It seems like the phrase of the weekend was “its chargeable”. Two major things that can be improved upon is room service and the check-out process. I am already paying a lot of money for an “Ultra All-Inclusive” however, I was not able to order room service without being charged. We are a captive audience on the island and there is no possible way for me to get any type of food once the buffet is shut down. With an all-inclusive resort, I would expect some type of late night options for food. The check-out process was easy however, after you check out at noon, everything is chargeable. Again, this was disappointing and poor customer service. In my opinion, if my sea plane does not come for another few hours after I check out, I would have to pay a premium on food and drinks when this is supposed to be “Ultra All-Inclusive”.

      Honeymoon at Centara”
      My husband and I had the best Maldives experience at the ocean view water villa. The villa view was magnificent and made better soaking in the infinity pool watching the sunset. Upon arrival at the villa, we had a 4D3N activities already pre-booked in order for us for the best experience in Centara. There is also a free 30min spa daily but has to be pre-arranged when checking in at the villa. We managed to try all the different cuisine at the restaurants many thanks to the staff. Also, we did the whale shark snorkeling and island snorkeling. There are complimentary bottles of red/white wines you can order to your villa daily as well. Our overall experience at Centara was truly awesome and will definitely recommend to our friends and family!

      update to previous review”
      Have to update a previous review describing difficulty making lunch and dinner reservatioňs. Within 24 hrs of my review a manager approached our breakfast table apologizing for our experience. He personally assured us that we not have any further issues, which we did not and were able to enjoy restaurant quality meals in differing venues. One other thing must be mentioned. The employee's truly enjoy their work and openly greet you when passing on walk ways. Definitely impressed during our time in a pristine facility. Thank you, Centara.

      Its Maldives .... but”
      I've been to this wonderful country since the 1990's and it has always been a destination that soothes the soul. But indeed the face of tourism has changed with the times and although the Centara Grand has all the elements of a wonderful Maldivian holiday, it just wasn't the most memorable one for me. Centara appears to be a chain that does very well with mass tourism with factory like precision of meals, activities, meals, spa, excursions, meals, bar games and so on. The Spa wait area resembled a doctors office on more than one occasion with the throng due for their daily 30 minute freebie. The 2 day wait list for teppanyaki and so on so forth.. The only solitude one got was in the privacy of ones own villa, or snorkelling in the fantastic house reef. Or making sure you were one of the very first diners in the restaurant in order to have a pleasant conversation with the wonderful staff and consume the deliciously prepared meal while taking in the peaceful scenery. The complimentary daily beer, white & red wines were very nice but perhaps a focus more on quality rather than quantity

      Fantastic Time At Centara”
      Beautiful tropical oasis located close to the best dive spot on South Ari Atoll. Dive staff extremely helpful. We had two bedroom beach pool room...could not ask for a better set-up what with gorgeous white sand beach outside our door and our own "private" mini-reef complete with reef fish (and a few small black tip sharks) swimming around...again, right outside the door. Food was excellent as were the drinks. And to top it off, the price was better than many of the other 5 star resorts.

      Beautiful Corals all around”
      Beautiful corals and marine life at your doorstep. Great all inclusive package (including Whale Shark snorkelling trip). Enough activities to keep us busy throughout the 4 nights' stay.
      We didn't have a good first day as the air-conditioning wasn't working despite multiple visits by the technician and customer service. I had to sleep without air-con for the first night despite promises made by the technician that my room will cool down in 1-2 hours. The situation turned for the better when Ashish Kumar (the Customer Service Manager) handled my case. I got an upgrade for the rest of my stay (I stayed a total of 4 nights). I was well greeted and asked about my stay everytime I met him or any of his staff to ensure that I have enjoyed myself. The resort has 3 restaurants (thai, italian and the Reef that serves a different theme buffet everynight) and at the Reef restaurant, there is a teppanyaki counter. Even though you may choose to eat at any restaurant, you need to make a reservation way in advance, especially for teppanyaki, and the Italian restaurant. Please do so on arrival as you may need at times, 3 days' advance reservation (for teppanyaki). They have various activities (included in package)- Sunset Fishing, Whale shark snorkelling, Snorkelling trip, sunset cruise. You will be provided a coupon for a Banana Boat ride. You may only have ONE trip for each activities (weather permitting) and you NEED to book in ADVANCE. There is a 30 minute spa package where you can choose a variety of massages everyday. Once again this need to be booked way in advance. For us, our slots are pre-booked and we can't change the time. The island is surrounded by beautiful corals and marine life so bring along your underwater cameras. You can even see young reef sharks daily (they are harmless). Selected alcohol beverages and cocktails are available throughout the day (freeflow). Overall, a beautiful resort but can be frustrating and stressful with all the pre-bookings and having to remember all the schedules.
