Awesome Stay !!

Kanpur, India

We had the best of time staying at Centara Ras Fushi for 3 nights in January, 2018. Very hospitable staff and very good food. We are vegetarians (Indian) and were served with good vegetarian food at all restaurants with good variety. We took the all inclusive package so all drinks and food were taken care of beforehand. I still remember and appreciate the group of staff waiving us bye while our outward journey on speedboat. We could see them waiving at us for long. Beautiful and comfortable water villas and amazing beach and water, Loved it.

The most amazing holiday in the stunning resort, with great atmosphere, delicious food and superb staff.

Our holiday in Maldives and stay in Centara was simply THE Best from start to finish. It was our honeymoon and 1st time in the Maldives. Overall experience was fantastic, the resort, the food, the facilities and the staff were amazing and made our stay very special and memorable. The best holiday we have been to and we will be back in Maldives and back in Centara. 5 out of 5 in all areas. If you are looking for relaxed holiday, not a big resort that is full of people this island is perfect. The pictures on the Centara's website as well as Tripadvisor are accurate and the island the resort looks exactly like that. ARRIVAL: We were welcome by a member of Centara Transfer team who took care of our luggage and guided us to our transportation (speed boat). This was quite a refreshing experience as typically your transfer is booked via a third party and you end up spending a lot of time looking for the travel agent, waiting for the paperwork, waiting for other travellers, driving around for a while to drop guests to different resources, etc. This was Centrara guests only transfer, therefore it was very quick, organised and felt very welcoming and personal. We received a bottle of water to keep hydrated. The transfer took about 20 minutes and was very pleasant. Upon arriving to the Centara resort we were welcome by the management Team. We were seated in the nice Front Office area, received a fresh towels and drinks for refreshments. We were explained all the essential information about our stay - accommodation, dining, drinking, facilities such as WiFi, sports, spa and other activities. ACCOMMODATION: We were transferred to our villa shortly after the front office briefing. We stayed in the Deluxe Water Villa / Bungalow which was very nice. Modern interior, tidy and clean. It matched the room description and images 100 %. We received a bottle of sparkling wine & chocolates in the room which added a nice touch to our arrival (honeymoon package). The water villas are amazing experience to stay out in the ocean, however you need to be mindful of a slight 'rocking' as well as to take into a count a walking distance to the main island. The only disadvantage of the villas for us however, was the fact we didnt get any sunshine on the front deck. Whilst it was beautiful waking up to the view of clear blue sea and able to snorkle at any time, we spend most of the time at the main island beach as we were getting no sunshine. The room service was great also - daily even on occasions where we did not specifically request the room to be cleaned. There was an option to have your room cleaned multiple times a day (if wished) but we didnt need that service as we were out most of the day. The maintanance team also regularly checked if everything was in order with the room. We were informed about events/activities on a regular basis by receiving a note from the management which made it a lot easier to keep up to date with what was going on. The rooms had a WiFI which was okay for standard browsing, but not anything more data demanding. There was TV with most of international channels and there was an option to also borrow DVDs from a Reception. The room also had swimming life jackets, rain coats, flip flops, bath robes and beach towels available for use.(Beach towels also available to collect from the Waves bar situated at the beach, so the room beach towels can be used for a villa use) Toiletries were topped up daily. FOOD & DRINK: We stayed on standard ALL INCLUSIVE package (there is an option to get a GOLD inclusive package, but to be honest, I couldn't think of anything that we were missing in our package). Soft drinks, cocktails & mocktails and wines/beers/spirits were included in all venues. There are following options: OCEANS - for buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. - Breakfast selection was really good, we were mainly having cooked breakfast (fried/scrambled egg, omellete, bacon, sausages, etc). There was a wide selection of breads and pastries (not just white and brown bread). Teas, coffees, soft/alcoholic drinks were available via orders. Juices (fruit & veg) were part of the buffet. - Lunch / Dinner - great selection of dishes, different every day and well diversified (meat vs fish vs vegetarian). Very international too. Soft/Alcoholic drinks available via order. This was by far, the best buffet service we experienced. It included dishes such as glazed pork ribs, crispy aromatic duck, tacos/burritos, seafood, BBQ food, etc. Desserts selection was absolutely great - multiple desserts but each one was different, presented very nice and tasted delicious. Also bespoke dessert station was available - pancakes, frittes, churos, etc. LA BREZZA - Italian restaurant (Al A Carte) for lunch/dinner Very nice atmospehere and we used it several times for lunch or dinner. Really good Italian menu selection. There was an 'all inclusive menu' which offered 3 courses plus there was a mini buffet stations with salads, pizzas, vegetables, breads. Dining from 'all inclusive menu' was FREE. There was an option to choose from a different menu that would be chargeable, but credit of 40 USD per person was available. All drinks available. SUAN BUA - Thai restaurant (Al A Carte) for lunch/dinner We only used restaurant once and the food was very good. We are however not fans of Thai food, hence why we only used it once. But we heard some very complimentary feedback from other guests suggesting that was their favourite. Menu options & drinks - same as in the La Brezza. AL KHAIMAH - Arabic restaurant (Al A Carte) for dinner only Very traditional set up. Nice atmosphere and the food was really good. THis is not included in the package, therefore we only used it once as the food in the other venues was included and was amazing. You are entitled to 40 USD credit per person and this covers pretty much the main course. WAVES POOL BAR Bar situated on the main beach within the infinity pool. Serves drinks from morning till 6pm. Really nice atmosphere as you are situated on the beach. Choice to have your drink in our out of the pool. Friendly staff and great speedy service. They often come and offer you a drink whilst you are relaxing at the beach or by the pool. Towels are available here to use at the beach. VIU BAR A stunning bar on the ocean, with indoor and outdoor seating area. Comfy netting seat available. Perfect for chilled time during the day or in the evening. Life band on most of the nights. Soft and alcoholic drinks available. Afternoon Tea/ Snacks served here. Shisha also available. Life band in the evening. STAFF: All staff in the restaurants, bars, sports & dive centre were extremely welcoming and friendly. They were all happy to spend time to talk to us and learn about our background, country, lifestyle and were happy to share their story (where they're from, how long they've been on the island, tell us more about Maldives and life in Maldives). They were all very genuine and have made an effort to make us feel nice. In particular we would like to compliment lovely ladies & gentleman in the Oceans (Janet, Mal) as well as the excellent chefs (Mama and others). Also Dinesh at the Waves bar was brilliant along with the bar tenders in Viu Bar. Very special mention goes to Leen who really made us feel special and we made friends. He prepared couple of surprise for us along with very personal notes. Also Tata from Georgia who looked after us in the Oceans and Arabic restaurant and share her experience with us. She made us understand a bit more about the island, the resort, the staff, etc. ACTIVITIES: Free water sports (paddle boat, paddling board, ...) Diving centre activities available at extra cost (snorkelling at coral areas, swimming with turtles, dolphin quest, parasailling, snorkelling with sharks, town or other islands visits). We went for a turtles and dolphin trips which were both a half day trips, we were lucky with turtles, not so lucky with dolphins (but you get 50% back if you dont see dolphins). There was an air conditioned fitness centre, which was always available at the morning times we went. There were also classes (free & paid) available - yogo, pilates, aqua aerobics. Also other sports such as table tennis, beach volleyball, badbinton,... There is a Chill Room with table football and 2 PlayStations (PS4) and games as well as some books available. Snorkelling is possible pretty much around the whole island, whether it's outside the villa or around the beach. You also get a free snorkelling kit at the dive centre for the whole duration of your holiday. LEAVING: Similar to our arrival - was very organised and smooth. The night before we received a schedule (breakfast time, check out time, speed boat departure, luggage collection). This was a great experience as we were on a morning flight, but Centara made it stress free - all we had to do was get up - our cases was picked up, we were still able to get full buffet breakfast at the checkout. All the management and some other staff came to say goodbye and waved as we were leaving. It felt quite emotional. Upon arrival at the airport, Centara transfer representative assisted with luggage (if required) and guided inside the airport. PRICES - Please be aware of Tax & Service Charge. If you spend (in restaurant, sport centre, shop) 10+12 % will be added to the bill.
