Centara Grand Maldives Resort & Spa

Surrounded by the blue ocean of the South Ari Atoll, and distinctive with its timbered walkways and colonial-style buildings, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives is a barefoot paradise with a palm-fringed beach and shimmering lagoon that offers the perfect island holiday for everyone.

With 112 spacious villas set over-water, and suites blending harmoniously with the natural setting, the island has a wealth of activities and superb facilities that makes 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 snorkellers, a shipwreck dive site just off the island, and easy access to some of the most famous dive sites in the world.With our Ultimate All-Inclusive concept, your stay on our tropical island is absolutely carefree, with dining, rejuvenating, playing and exploring all included.

Map & Location

Our island is set within the South Ari Atoll, and can be accessed by seaplane from Male International Airport, or by a domestic flight from the airport to the domestic Maamigili Airport, followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride to the resort.

A world of exploration is at your doorstep, with our own house reef and, just off the reef, a dedicated sunken shipwreck. The resort is the first in the South Ari Atoll to be awarded Green Fins certification, a programme of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Reef-World Foundation that recognises environmentally responsible diving.

I discovered Zeldiva through the persistent YouTube ads we often skip, but one day, while occupied with something else, their ad caught my attention. For me, it was a "gerrari" as to where to go for my honeymoon trip, i.e., the most preferred destination, the Maldives. I thought of getting in touch with the Zeldiva team, and from the beginning to the end, the experience was seamless. Their website made it easy to manage everything from budgeting to selecting a resort. I must commend their dedicated team for their assistance. Although my preferred resort was fully booked, I trusted their recommendation, and it turned out to be a wise decision. Not only did I have an amazing time, but it also cost less than expected. While booking directly with the resort is an option, I believe using Zeldiva brings peace of mind. Therefore, I highly recommend their services.

I don't know how she did it but Merissa got us by far the best deal for our stay in Maldives and seamlessly managed a booking of 18 people just a few weeks before departure, and remained contactable throughout. I will definitely use Zeldiva again! Thank you!

Highly recommend Zeldiva Luxury to any one planning a trip to the Madlives. Marissa's help ensured a smooth booking process, a better deal and ease of mind, for that I am truly grateful. Also thankful for meeting Ahmed from the Zeldiva team who greeted us at the airport during arrival and also during the departure. He was a great help, ensuring that my wife, infant daughter and I had a smooth transition from the plane to boat and back from boat to plane at both times, even giving us information about the Maldives (explaining Kumari Kandam! which I wont forget about). Thank you for making our stay at the Maldives easy and smooth. I would recommend using Zeldiva Luxury to anyone planning on going to the Madlives to ensure getting a better deal, smooth transport transition and ease of mind
