My wife and I celebrated 10 years of marriage by flying out to the Maldives! Our stay at the Centara Grand was perfect, the staff were friendly and the quality of food was out of this world but nothing beats the views and amazing clear blue sea water and white sandy beach! This was a dream destination and a holiday that we will never forget! We wish we could've stayed longer. Special thanks to Asim who welcomed us from the Seaplane and made sure we were fine throughout our stay at the resort.

We had the most wonderful stay here. Scenery was stunning and so relaxing. There was plenty to do if you want to but also absolutely fine just to chil in one of the many beautiful spots around the island. The crab racing is great fun. We also went to learn couples massage at the spa and my husband had a go at scuba diving. Staff were fantastic. Particularly Norbelyn who makes the most wonderful desserts, and we loved chatting to Happy in the restaurant. Also the guys in The Club made our last night super special. We can’t thank them all enough.

A very wonderful experience. Fantastic atmosphere, great facility, excellent care, and the staff were very accommodating of every request. The natural environment was well cared for and protected. The over the water room with the pool was delightful and private - worth every Penny. We would also like to highlight the following staff for the superb service: Amanilla for the very attentive room cleaning and care; Jonathan as a very kind and funny wait staff at The Reef restaurant; The Doctor at the medical clinic graciously doing all of the PCR tests; And Patis and Pan who provided the best massage experience we have ever had!
