Overview

Set a little way south west of Male, Centara Grand Island Resort offers luxurious accommodation and that secluded island paradise location of your dreams. Heavenly palm-fringed beaches are lapped by clear turquoise water & a house reef that is kaleidoscope of colour for snorkelers– it doesn’t get much better.

An extensive and varied Kids Club means taking children here is not a problem, and the resort also boasts an excellent all-inclusive package that includes a wide choice of dining options, daily resort spa credit and a delicious champagne buffet breakfast. If you’re an avid scuba diver, we think you’ll fall in love with Centara Grand Island. It is encircled by some of the world’s finest coral reefs and even has a fantastic shipwreck close by if you tire of the myriad tropical fish.

Top Tip: While some islands in Maldives don’t provide very much in terms of activities for children, Centara Grand Island’s Kids Club ensures they’ll be entertained for the whole holiday.
