Delightfully situated amidst the dreaming islands and sparkling lagoons of the South Ari Atoll, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa promises exquisite hospitality that blends both Thai and Maldivian traditions. This chic contemporary resort exudes laid-back luxury and distinctive style, and offers a wealth of top-of-the-range amenities that make it an ideal destination for both couples and families. Combined with superb accommodation and surroundings of rare natural beauty, it all adds up to a truly remarkable holiday experience.
The seaplane from Malé Airport, after a scenic flight affording spectacular views of the atolls and lagoons, drops you at a floating pontoon, and a speedboat ferries you to the resort, where you are welcomed with a glass of champagne. You can walk around the resort using palm-shaded timbered pathways, that wind among the distinctive colonial-style buildings. Nearly half the resort, including the lobby and lobby bar, and the fitness centre, is built over the lagoon on stilts.
Relaxation is a pleasure on the beautiful white sand beach or at the lovely beachfront pool, and you can snorkel just off the beach at the gorgeous coral house reef, experiencing the exotic marine life with its kaleidoscope of colours. A real sunken shipwreck close by provides an exciting dive site (as well as being the scene of the Maldives' first under-water wedding), and there are plenty of water-sports activities such as kayaking and wind-surfing. At the enchanting ocean-front Spa Cenvaree, there are hot and cold plunge pools and Vichy hydrotherapy facilities, plus an outdoor over-water pavilion dedicated to Thai massage.
An early highlight of your day will be the champagne breakfast at the thatched Reef Restaurant by the pool, serving colourful Asian and western dishes from live cooking stations for lunch and dinner. At the à la carte restaurant Azzuri Mare, with its stunning views over the lagoon, you can enjoy a spectacular array of freshly-caught exotic seafood specialities, prepared Italian style, while Suan Bua, by the lotus pool, is the place to savour the fragrant aromas of authentic home-style Thai cuisine. The two-storey Coral Bar, one of the most impressive bars in the Maldives, is the island's focal point for activities and entertainment, as well as housing a superb wine cellar, while the over-water Aqua Bar is a perfect place to enjoy a peaceful pre-dinner or post-dinner cocktail, while watching the sun go down. And for extra indulgence, you can book a five-course dinner at the exclusive Island Club, with the option of a romantic candle-lit meal in private.
