Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thailand’s leading international hotel operator, is inviting travellers to leave the stress and strain of the outside world far behind and escape to paradise in the Maldives, with a choice of award-winning island resorts that combine breath-taking natural beauty, world-class facilities and warm Thai hospitality.

Centara understands that the last 12 months have been difficult for many people, as the global pandemic impacted all aspects of our daily lives, from working routines to personal relationships.

So what could be more refreshing and rewarding than a tropical vacation? The Maldives, which was only lightly affected by Covid-19, is now open for tourism and welcoming international guests for short breaks or extended stays.

British visitors know the Centara brand and love the group’s hotels and resorts in Thailand, for their blend of world-class accommodation, fantastic facilities and warm, Thai-inspired services.

Travellers can experience the same high standards of hospitality at two idyllic island resorts in the Maldives, one perfectly suited to families and the other ideal for couples.

Centara is ready to create unforgettable experiences for every guest.

Centara Grand: Five-star family moments

Nestled on a pristine island in the South Ari Atoll, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives is a fantastic option for families.

The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort, nestled in the breathtaking Baa Atoll, the first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve site in the Maldives, participated in Earth Hour, a global initiative led by the Worldwide Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) to combat climate change.

On the 23rd of March, from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort dimmed non-essential lighting in public spaces, symbolizing its unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability. Guests were encouraged to join this meaningful gesture by turning off lights in their guestrooms. During this period, all guests were invited to join for a captivating acoustic performance at Sunset Beach, where they indulged in specially crafted drinks tailored for this memorable occasion, complemented by candlelight ambiance. 

In addition to its Earth Hour observance, the resort hosted a tree-planting event from 10:30 to 11:30 AM, where guests and associates alike came together to plant trees in designated areas surrounding the resort. This initiative not only contributed to carbon offsetting efforts but also enhanced the natural beauty of the Baa Atoll, enriching the local ecosystem for generations to come.

Beyond Earth Hour, The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort remains steadfast in its dedication to preserving the pristine natural beauty of the Maldives through the establishment of a dedicated Sustainability Committee. This committee serves as the driving force behind initiatives aimed at fostering sustainability through initiatives such as water conservation, organic waste repurposing and renewable energy utilization – thus ensuring sustainability remains deeply ingrained in the resort’s operations and ethos.
