We just completed today our amazing stay at Centara Grand and I highly recommended. It is truly a five star experience: Pros 1. The view is spectacular. The weather and water temperature was perfect. The resort is spotless and super clean. 2. The infinity pool has a tremendous view of the sea. Bar and buffet right next door. 3. Snorkeling - lots to see including turtles, baby sharks, and many other beautiful fish. All rooms are also equipped with life jackets . 4. Food - I chose the all inclusive option and was totally worth it for us . Food is fresh everyday and many options. I included few fotos. We like The Reef, Thai and Italian restaurant. 5. Service - the staff is super attentive, helpful and hospitable. Special shout out to Chandani Jayatillaka, Mitchell (supervisor), Faruk, and food servers Husain, Hunid and Nada! You made our trip an unforgettable one. 6. Spa - Totally worth it. The Maldives Massage was incredible! 7. Non motorized equipment was fun and safe to use. 8. Even though many of the rooms are occupied the resort felt like is was never crowded. Lots of space in the beach all around the island. 9. Room- we got the duplex and it was all worth it. The rooms were large and had all of the tolietries you need. Large umbrellas are also provided. 10. Excursions are provided for an additional price. Cons We only stayed for 9 days and wished we had stayed longer!
