A fantastic resort

Qingdao, China

We love Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives. This is our second holiday there. The location is stunning and there are enough included activities and entertainments to keep all the family occupied. My six year old loved the Kids club, games room and the sea life. My wife loved the workouts at the pool, the views, the spa, and the italian food. I loved the snorkelling by the reefs and the opportunity to swim with sharks, plus the alcohol on tap!I can't recommend this place highly enough. Whilst there are a large number of staff who will serve you during the day, so you won't learn everyone's name, they do go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable and attend to you. We will be returning possibly next Christmas but for sure sooner or later. It is quite costly, mind.

Great family vacation

Caroline Springs, Australia

We are a family of four and we stayed in a deluxe family water villa. It was well equipped with plenty of space for all of us and the villa was well equipped and clean. The all inclusive package made it easy as we weren’t always pulling out money and the credit card. There is an abundance of beautiful marine life to see and the fish feeding sessions are always exciting. Kid’s enjoyed the kid’s club and the spa is beautiful and tranquil. We had a great time! The food was great!
