Centara Grand Island Ari atoll

Our Opinion
Centara Grand Island is a fantastic all-inclusive resort offering something for everyone. It is a smaller island that packs a real punch with its Ultimate All-Inclusive package, which covers a range of water sports, excursions, the mini-bar, as well as three different venues for dinner. If you enjoy spicy food, then the Thai Restaurant, Lotus, is a must. . The house reef offers excellent snorkelling and diving is great too, due to Centara's location in the South Ari Atoll.

We particularly like the Beach Suites, as they provide ample space for 2 adults and 2 children, with the interior separated by a mezzanine level - the bedroom upstairs and the living room below. If you would prefer to be over the water, the Deluxe Family Water Villas come complete with bunk beds and the Luxury Sunset Water Villas are perfectly located to access the house reef.
