"Relaxing yet exotic resort for a perfect honeymoon"
Coming from California we had a long travel but once we got there it was all worth it. The over the water villas were exactly what I imagined. They were cleaned twice a day and set such a romantic mood for our honeymoon. Waking up to all those beautiful sea animals under our room was beyond amazing. And the staff quickly became our buddies as we always had a great conversation with them during our all inclusive meals. Thank you to everyone there for such a wonderful trip! FYI I was only vote once thanks to the Swayer repellent!!

The best hotel I've been to in Maldives. The best island hotel I've seen so far. Great staff, clean rooms, good food, Shisha, clean calm waters, great for snorkelling and sea activities.
Reasonable price, great value for money and all inclusive actually means all inclusive. You don't like something, no worries, they get you what you want, they give you what you like. It's like Burj Alarab in Maldives. You want it, you get it!
The staff was efficient, courteous and nice. The food was decent. The island itself is a perfect little piece of paradise; white sand, coconut palms and a coral reef. The house reef is a gem for snorkelers. All and all, it was a beautifully, relaxing vacation.There is a good spa on the island that can help visitors indulge. The prices of the spa are reasonable. Since it is a quiet island and very few activities, single travelers may feel a bit lonely in the evenings.
Tropical resort accessible by seaplane, set on a tiny island, only 250 metres from coast to coast, in a shallow blue lagoon …More
Fully lives up to other reviews. Not cheap but delivers on almost every level from location, to staff, food/wine to facilities.
I all starts and finishes at the Constance lounge at Male airport and is very well organised. You'll love it
We Went to the place on 22nd Nov 2014 and stayed for 3 days. The beaches were awesome. The food was average. However, for indian veg, the cooks were more than willing to make us some curries and dal. The staff is extremely pleasant and more than willing to help. The beaches are extremely neat. The best part of the resort is that it is not very crowded and if you walk a little bit, you will feel that you are the only one on the beach.....Will definitely recommend for people travelling to Maldives.
1. We are the only Chinese in the island :) ( But we are Malaysian Chinese )
2. Lonobo sister island is a must to go , super clean beach
3. Buffet are nice , strongly recommended
4. Recommended to upgrade to all-inclusive on 2nd day onwards and you will enjoy free sunset cruise , and worry free
5. with Unlimited drink with Coconet Lips , Maafushivaru Ladies ....

We have just returned from our 8 night honeymoon at Centara, where we had the most wonderful time. Centara is a tropical island PARADISE!
Our over-water bungalow was clean, tidy, cool, quiet and private. There's nothing more magical than waking up to the most beautiful blue water outside every window of the room! Our bathroom was modern, with a jacuzzi, and the vanity was stocked full of necessary toiletries- very handy if you travelled only with carry-on luggage, which we did (and I highly recommend; you don't need much here!)
Centara runs an all-inclusive package, which made it so easy! We packed away our wallets in the in-room safe when we arrived and didn't take them out until we left. You will NEVER go hungry on the island, with Buffet breakfast and a choice of restaurants for lunch and dinner (Buffet, Italian, Thai or Japanese Teppanyaki). Afternoon Tea is served by the pool with a selection of cakes and sandwiches.The food was fantastic. So many choices for drinks at the bars/ restaurants too. I loved the frozen Pina Coladas :) I only wish the in-room mini bar had wines/bubbles as well as beer (I don't drink beer)
Loved the daily massages and included tours. We went to the gym a couple of times; It's got what you need for a holiday workout.
Hands-down, the best part of our holiday were the staff and other guests we met. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming.
We cannot wait to come back to Centara!!
While South Ari Atoll offers some of the most established resorts in the Maldives, development has been relatively measured, sympathetic and with minimal impact on the environment and local culture. From May to September, whale sharks cruise the south-western waters of the atoll.
