Centara’s Maldives resorts shine at 2018 World Luxury Hotel Awards
Centara Hotels and Resorts has won prestigious awards at the 2018 World Luxury Hotel Awards for its two resorts in the Maldives.
At the 12th annual World Luxury Hotel Awards gala held on November 10 at AYANA Resort and Spa in Bali, Centara Grand Island Resort and Spa Maldives won a continent award for the leading ‘Luxury Family Beach Resort’ in Indian Ocean.
Meanwhile, Centara Ras Fushi Resort and Spa Maldives received a continent award for the leading ‘Luxury Adult Beach Resort’ in Indian Ocean.
Centara makes travel to the Maldives more accessible and appealing with a choice of two distinctive resorts. Each one caters to different needs but both offer the experience of one of the world’s most incredible natural holiday destinations.
Surrounded by the blue ocean of the South Ari Atoll and distinctive with its timbered walkways and colonial-style buildings, Centara Grand Island Resort and Spa Maldives is a luxury, once-in-a-lifetime barefoot paradise with a palm-fringed beach and shimmering lagoon that offers the perfect island holiday for everyone.
With 112 spacious villas set overwater and suites blending harmoniously with the natural setting, the island has a wealth of activities and superb facilities that make this an ideal hideaway for couples and honeymooners, or a fun-filled destination for families. There are exceptional opportunities to discover the exotic life of Maldives underwater, with a house reef that is a kaleidoscope of colour for snorkelers, a shipwreck dive site just off the island and easy access to some of the most famous dive sites in the world.
Centara Ras Fushi Resort and Spa Maldives is an adults-only resort, with no one under the age of 12 years accommodated on the island. Located just 20 minutes by speedboat from the main Velana International Airport, the resort has 140 villas. Flexibility in dining plans is provided with the choice of half-board plus or all-inclusive programmes.
