‘House Reef, PADI Dive Centre’

Nestled in South Ari Atoll, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives delivers an ‘Ultimate All-Inclusive’ experience that includes Champagne breakfast. Suites and villas are dotted around the resort, giving varying vantage points of the ocean and the lagoon and are beach side or overwater. The resort is as popular with couples as it is families and there is a wide array of facilities and leisure opportunities to keep everyone happy. Let your children run free at Camp Safari while you enjoy a tranquil trip to the luxurious Spa Cenvaree. There are motorised and non-motorised water sports on offer and the fitness centre and badminton courts keep you busy on dry land. The dining options include home-style Thai food, Italian and international themed buffets, not to mention the Coral Bar & Lounge – the social hub which serves cocktail extraordinaire.



In Our Opinion

‘This is a fantastic area for those wanting to relax and those wanting to get stuck into lots of land and water sports including diving at the PADI certified diving centre where you can then discover and explore the house reef.’
