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.
