31 August, 2019
Centara Invites Besties To Hang Out At Its Two Resorts In The Maldives In New “BFF Breaks” Initiative. Centara Hotels & Resorts is inviting groups of friends to create magical memories together in the Maldives, with an array of activities that showcase the stunning marine world and bring BFFs closer together.
Hang out with your best pals in a pristine paradise, explore the reef, go shipwreck diving, spot dolphins, discover neighbouring islands or simply relish the joy of the marine world during a sunset cruise.
Centara offers a choice of resorts in the Maldives. Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa Maldives is an idyllic adults-only island retreat with pure white sand and a sparkling blue lagoon, which makes it the perfect playground for beach games, snorkelling and water sports. Alternatively, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives features its own house reef and is surrounded by some of the most famous dive sites in the world.
From diving and snorkelling to water sports, island escapes, fishing trips and conservation projects and more, Centara’s perfect pair of Maldivian resorts present many wonderful ways for groups of friends to relax, reconnect and reinvigorate their relationship.
At Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa Maldives, the resort’s world-class Water Sports Centre offers a full range of activities, allowing guests to enjoy fun-filled days on the ocean. Kite surfing is one of the most uplifting water sports available, as riders speed across the waves or through the sky, up to 30 meters above the sea!
Alternatively, sailing is a wonderful skill that friends can share together. The resort’s team will teach companions how to handle a catamaran, catch the wind and glide gracefully across the water. These lessons will give guests a great new life skill and could even be the start of a new shared passion. Other options include parasailing, water-skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and more.
Over at Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives, a stylish fleet of vessels is ready to take guests on a series of mesmerising marine adventures, including underwater encounters with a breath-taking range of colourful creatures.
One of the most incredible encounters a diver can have is with the world’s biggest fish: the whale shark. The Maldives is the only place in the world with a year-round population of these oceanic giants, and the resort’s PADI-certified dive team will lead a private cruise into the deep blue sea, for one of life’s most awe-inspiring experiences.
Prefer to keep your hair dry? Friends can climb aboard the resort’s semi-submersible for a scenic ride beneath the waves. Suitable for all ages, this is a great way to gather your group together for a truly unforgettable journey, cruising past colourful corals and tropical fish – a genuine highlight of the holiday.
For a more invigorating adventure, groups can head out on the shimmering sea for a day of big game fishing. Chill out on the deck of your boat, crack open a cold beer, cast out a line and soak up the stunning scenery. Guests will get a real thrill when they do battle with some of the ocean’s fastest fish, including marlin and tuna, before posing for onboard photos with their mates.
Friends’ holidays are one of the biggest emerging trends in the travel industry, as former school friends, college pals, teammates and work colleagues get together to create awesome escapes together. Elevate your next buddies’ break to the next level of luxury with Centara in the Maldives and make memories that will be treasured forever.

Best Experience: Couples, Family holiday, Over-Water Vollas, Spa, All Inclusive, swimming with whale sharks
Given the need for the Maldives in the 5-star family premium all inclusive hotels, Centara built one from scratch in South Ari atoll (dismantling what used to be Machchafushi). Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa is a perfect match for honeymooners, families and groups on incentives trips, and has a reputation for hosting renewal of vows on its idyllic sandy beach surrounded by lazy palms and sparkling azure waters. The hotel does not look like a typical Maldivian resort, but it works brilliantly. Today, Centara Grand competes on an equal footing with Lily Beach and slightly behind Constance Moofushi.
The Centara has a variety of facilities awaits adults and younger guests, and the latter will enjoy a children’s pool and the Kids’ Club with supervised Camp Safari for the youngsters and E-Zone entertainment zone for those in their teens. The resort has an attractive beach pool with a shallow children's section, a beautiful but expensive Thai Cenvaree SPA (guests receive a daily $ 100 resort credit that buys a 30-minute massage) and a fitness center overlooking the ocean, built on stilts over the lagoon. Guests can snorkel right next to the beach on the beautiful reef house, and the nearest site offers interesting rack-diving. A children's club with a playground is provided for free, and the games room offers snooker, billiards, ping-pong and table hockey. Other offers include beach volleyball, a tennis court, a souvenir shop and emergency medical services out from the crowd. Read Full Review...
