Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives£££
Ultra-luxurious but family-friendly, the resort showcases stunning over-water villas with every amenity, and service on hand for an exceptional experience. You will enjoy our “Ultimate All-Inclusive” programme, an innovative way to slip into an utterly seamless, cash-free state of ease in which relaxing is the only priority.
You can take advantage of a choice of dining options, free-flow soft drinks, cocktails or wines throughout the day, a constantly refreshed in-villa minibar and a sundowner cocktail party each evening. During the day, off-island excursions, free snorkelling equipment hire, and access to non-motorised water sports are all waiting for you to take part. Generous daily spa credits at SPA Cenvaree are also included, but if you’re intent upon discovering the magical underwater world of the Maldives, up to three scuba diving sessions a week as an alternative to spa treatments can be arranged as part of the package.
The Maldives is the ultimate in island escapism — pure white sands and gentle, translucent turquoise waters; a place of tranquillity, discovery and star-filled nights. It’s also home to world-class accommodation, diving, spa treatments and dining at five-star Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives.
A WORLD OF CHOICE
The resort’s culinary experts are constantly creating a huge variety of appetising and healthy options within both Asian and international culinary traditions. Made from the freshest and most tempting ingredients, breakfasts, lunches and spectacular evening dining options are all on the menu.
MAKE YOUR SELECTION
Suan Bua serves authentic Thai cuisine in a serene lotus pond setting; and Azzuri Mare is set above the mesmerising lagoon which is perfect for a romantic Italian meal and offers a mouthwatering selection of fresh local and imported seafood. Reef is open all day and is the place for generous international buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Coral Bar & Lounge is a lively spot with musical entertainment, and Aqua is another option for quiet drinks and nibbles.
LEISURE AND PLEASURE FOR ALL
The sports and fitness facilities include a fitness centre, a multipurpose court for various sports including tennis, volleyball and badminton, a water sports centre, and a swimming pool with children’s pool. SPA Cenvaree is the place to luxuriate in the most sublimely restful environment, with a menu of treatments to choose from and the option of a rejuvenating Thai massage at the sala overlooking the ocean. The resort has been awarded Maldives’ best All-Inclusive Resort in 2014 by Maldives Association of Travel Agents & Tour Operators and Maldives’ best Family Resort in 2012, 2013 and 2015 with superb facilities to keep children happy and busy with the dual age Kids’ Club featuring Camp Safari for children aged 4-9 and E-Zone for teenagers.
The dive and water sports centre can arrange any ocean activities imaginable, including snorkelling, diving, windsurfing, kayaking and fishing; and some of the best dive sites in the world are within easy reach. If you prefer to stay close to the resort, a white sand beach rings the island, and there’s even a reef with its own dedicated shipwreck which teems with colourful marine life.
