    Wonderful experience from start to finish
    Pros: From the moment we were met at the airport to the moment we were dropped back was simply fabulous. The team smoothly guided us through to the seaplane, making the transfer painless. The hotel and the location are stunning, the facilities fantastic, the room both luxourious and comfortable, and the food divine. I loved watching the seaplanes arrive and depart from the back of our overwater villa. My daughter enjoyed her first experience of snorkelling and there were enough activities to keep us all entertained for the week that we stayed. Each member of the hotel greeted us with warmth and smiles, from the greeting at the airport, to their long waves goodbye as our boat departed. The little touches were way above hotels I've stayed at previously - from the welcome message, to the special birthday message made with coconut leaves, to the "see you soon" messages both on our dining table on our last night, and in the sand art in our villa for our last night.
    Cons: Hard to find anything really. The afternoon tea was the only area that we encountered that could use a revamp. This was part of the all inclusive package. If we had paid extra for this, then we really would have been disappointed. We tried the à la carte restaurants and found their choice on the all inclusive package to be too limited. We actually enjoyed the Reef restaurant the most due to the variety of very tasty food on offer which made life easier with kids. Do note that not everything on the drinks and food menus are included in the All Inclusive package. Often the team will point this out when ordering.

    Pros: Centare resort was our beautiful hideaway for 15 nights. Right after we stepped out of the seaplane our honeymoons have started. The whole team made sure that our dreams came really true. Our first contact was with guest service manager Sveltana. She welcomed us with open heart, welcome drink und very professional at same time. She was always reachable per Whatsapp, if there were some questions or we needed some help. We felt very good served during our whole stay. Our room attendant Samsul did his job on such excellent level. He came many times per day for cleaning up, a little small talk and filling up the water bottles. He got sure that we have all we need. Every time when we came back after his cleaning, the villa looked like brand new! Additionally he has surprised us with many sand drawings (outside the villa) or inside with the towels (elephants, angels). He did his job with passion and perfectionism to the last detail! The staff from the “Reef bar” did amazing job too. We really enjoyed the excellent services from Habib and Jasim. They knew us very well and have never forgot, what are our favourite drinks. Plus they filled up our ice cube box automatically. When they had time, we did some small talks and they come automatically to the table and asked if we need something. The food itself was just AMAZING!!! The buffets offered a huge choice of food, vegetable, salads, fresh fruits and deserts. The quality of dishes were comparable with very good europeans restaurants. We were many times wondering how its possible to prepare it with such quality on a small island in the middle of Indian ocean! Our side-dish highlight were the fresh made butter garlic naan from Masut! If you like Indian kitchen you gonna love it! What we either appreciated were two “a la carte” restaurants on the island (italian and thai). Both had very professional staff and delicious dishes.
    Cons: Part 2 what we liked: Both places are definitely worth to visit more than once and to try many dishes from their menu card! Also we would like to thank to our guides from “dive center” for the great experience!!!We took trips to snorkel with turtles and mantas. The guides gave their best to find the see animals and that we all can see them live in the ocean. Not to mentioned, that they dive to the animals and take fantastic photos and videos with “gopro” camera. During the way back every guest got those videos in full quality as memory. The equipment and the ships were clean and looked in very good shape. We had some issues with our whole face masks and therefore we borrowed a separate mask and a snorkel from dive center. Everything was free of charge and in very good condition. During our stay we have met many times the main resort manager and he found time for polite conversations and gave us tips where we can find turtles in our bay. And he was right! We have found ca 70cm big turtle just 30-40metes from our villa. It was just an amazing experience to observe this peaceful and elegant creature eating and diving for like 30minutes alone. The resort crew organized for us the seaplane flights and helped us also at the airport itself. On our way back it was very busy morning and we were worried to miss our flight. The resort attendant accompanied us through the priority line even when we had economy tickets. They knew exactly when which airlines close gates and have departures. After such a great time it was very hard to us to say goodbye, We will come back for sure and recommend this resort to anybody looking for a amazing honeymoon destination!!!

    Pros: 10月末にハネムーンで利用し、夢のような時間を味わいました。日本語は通じませんが、スタッフの皆さんがスマホで翻訳して、ゆっくり会話してくれるので、安心して宿泊することができました!設備は綺麗です、海外旅行らしく水圧は弱めです。島は1周15分ほどで、中央はスタッフの寮となっています。レストランはビュッフェ・イタリアン・タイ料理があり、どれも美味しいですが、特にイタリアンが美味でした!ビュッフェは朝・昼・晩の隔日位でメニューがかわります。タイ料理もおいしいのですが、陸地にあるため、蚊が飛んでます。スタッフの方々は気さくで、通りすがりに必ず声をかけてくれます。1日1回のミニバー補充と2回のアメニティ補充があります。ビールは2本とコーラ・ファンタなどです。保湿剤などもなくなれば補充されます。。。オールインクルーシブではない料理やドリンクは事前に知らせてくれるので安心して飲食できます。ビールやワインなどは22時まで飲み放題です。海はかなり綺麗です!エメラルドグリーンとはここのことです!シュノーケルとフィンはチェックアウトまで借りれますが、マリンシューズはないので、珊瑚に気を付けてください。私は珊瑚で足を5か所ほどやられました。満潮は12~13時なので、部屋から海に飛び込むなら、それくらいを推奨します。ちなみに飛び込んで背中を切りました。干潮が18時くらいで、珊瑚がむき出しになるくらい水深が浅くなるので、物理的に夜は泳げません。しかし、イタリアンとメインのバーでは海にライトアップすることで、お酒や料理をたのしみながらフィッシュウォッチングができます。ハロウィン時期なのもあって、ビュッフェや道路ではスタッフが仮装や飾りつけ、フェイスペインティングを無料で提供するなど、季節を感じる催しもありました。水上飛行機は髙いですが、一生に一度の体験と思えば、とても素晴らしかったです。プロペラが会話できない位うるさいので、気になる方はノイキャンがあるイヤホン持参してください。日本人宿泊客も2組ほどみかけましたが、日本人らしく、慎ましい距離感です。外国の方は酔ってるとぐいぐい来ますが、だいたいノリでいけます! ダイビングは最初にチェックダイビングがあります。チェックダイビングも沈没船をたのしむことができます。Alvinというスタッフがゆっくり丁寧に説明してくれます。「さかな、さかな、さかな」の歌も日本語で歌ってくれます。 お土産ショップも小さいですがあります。しかし、ほとんどはMale空港でも買えます。ホテル限定品は見ればわかると思います。 書ききれない位、夢のような時間で帰りたくなくなるで注意が必要です。旅行前で不安だったところは記載したつもりです。Happy travel!
    Cons: 2グループ共有のsunset villaに泊まりましたが、奥の1グループ用(写真の海の上で丸い部分)が、太陽ともろ被りしており、サンセットではなかった。島から一番手前の部屋で、奥の部屋が空いていたため奥にしてほしいと言えばまだましだったかもしれない。しかし、ハネムーン用にお風呂やベッド、シャンパンが容易されていたので、それを言う勇気はありませんでした。それを差し引いて9.9点くらいです。 ジンベイザメのシュノーケルウォッチは、タイミングによるのでしょうが、全く見れませんでした。他のホテルと連携しているのか、いざ見つかると、他のホテルの船が10隻程集まっている場所に行き、海の上で人がごったがえし。5分程泳いで、船上に戻る始末でした。その後罪滅ぼしか15分程シュノーケルを行いましたが、3時間揺れる船上、20分のシュノーケルと割に合いませんでした。 宿泊villaが島と近いせいか、2回ほどゴキブリがでました。熱湯をかけて倒しましたが、虫が無理な人はスタッフを呼ぶ必要があります。

    Beautiful resort at the South Atoll Maldives. We spent a great honeymoon. The property is well maintained and the staff were top notch ( Munna from room service, Yuvraj at the front office, sunny at the restaurant ). Stayed at the beach resort and the pool villa. Would recommend staying at both to get a wholesome experience with the All inclusive package.

    Absolutely paradise. If you could afford the Sunset Water Villa with private pool (but more like a huge bathe tub), definitely go for it. My friend and I had our girls trip in Maldives and stayed 3 nights at the resort during high season. We opt for bed and breakfast with Club access - you get to choose having buffet breakfast at the Reef restaurant or at the Club where items are prepared freshly). Service & Communication: 4.5/5 Coming from a hospitality industry background and traveled quite extensively. I must say the service reaches the standard 5 stars hotel playbook. The hotel app is a great extension for effective communications and made in-room dinning so much easier. Staffs are very polite and acknowledge and greet guests each time they pass by. However, the reason I didn’t give a full 5 score is that the communication on the seaplane prior arrival was very annoying. I had to make initiative to call the hotel TWICE to have a confirmation on seaplane. I would hope that it was the other way around where hotel contacts me once they get the confirmation instead of me chasing it especially after reading so many bad reviews on Google regarding to extensive delay on seaplane happened to other guests before. Activities: 5/5 There a water sport center and diving center on the island where you could join some excursions. Also a house reef behind diving center where you could do a guided or solo snorkelling. We did a few excursions guided by very experienced local guides in Maafushi island before checking in this hotel so wasn’t particularly interested to do more. We however decided to join the turtle snorkeling and saw a few turtles. We got seasick as the wooden boat was quite floaty and the waves were against us. The hotel has different activities daily, free of charge. We did movie night, karaoke, dj live music, fish feeding. Overall was great but don’t expect you will get the world best dj spinning behind the deck. Amenities and Facilities: 5/5 You have everything you need in the room. I spot a difference where you do get more amenities if you are staying in the water villa (compare to deluxe beach duplex villa, such as hair conditioner, a better hair dryer, espresso and coffee machine…). Water villa is renovated and everything was spotless and clean. Food and Drinks: 4 out of 5 We tried all restaurants and bars on the island. Buffet is great and lots of varieties. Tuna pizza at the Italian restaurants was good, thin crust and got the spices kick but not really the best pizza I’ve had. Particularly in awe with the Thai restaurant as our host, a Thai woman from Bangkok (didn’t get her name unfortunately) asked the kitchen to prepare my favourite dish - pad see ew and it turned out to be exceptional. Tom yum soup was perfect but just didn’t have enough seafoods (only a few tiny pieces). Club breakfast was the best, and there was egg Benedict, egg frittata on the menu to choose from. For the fact we were the only ones there, we got the best service and attention from staff so that experience made it even more special. We ordered quite many rounds of cocktails with a la carte prices during our stay. Cocktails are standard stuffs which you can except from a neighbourhood bar.

    Es ist alles perfekt. Sehr freundliche Mitarbeiter, welche versuchen, diesen Aufenthalt zum unvergesslichen Traum zu machen. Sehr bemüht, es wirkt authentisch und nicht aufgesetzt. Wohlfühlen vorprogrammiert.Das SPA ist herrlich entspannend, die Mitarbeitenden wissen, was sie tun und sind gut ausgebildet. Das Essen ist fantastisch- keinmal musste ich darüber nachdenken, ob es frisch ist bzw Hygiene eingehalten wird - es ist so gut!

    Everything was great! Stayed at the overwater villa, which was very beautiful with an amazing view, big bathroom and comfortable bed. Staff was very friendly and we really enjoyed the food. Especially at the Thai restaurant. Food and drinks are a bit pricey though if you don't book the all-inclusive package. Had a good time overall and would love to come back soon.

    I enjoyed a lot my stay, the place is like a paradise and the staff takes care of everything since your arrival. Thank you to Rohit and Islam they were great during my stay. The whale shark experience is a must do. I didn’t like that the food options were a little reduce, also I didn’t like that room service was not included even though I had the all inclusive package because I had a villa with private pool and I couldn’t enjoy it fully because I had to be going to the bar for drink constantly.
