It has various activities and the Thai dining was excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves except for the high price of the activities such as semi-submarine and parasailing, etc I supposed it's the same in every part of Maldives. One area to highlight would be that staff can be more proactive and lookout for guests who do not put on their mask when they help themselves to the buffet. A staff should be on a lookout for such incidents. Overall it was one of our best trips ever. Will definitely be back again. Great job to the GM of Centara Grand and her excellent team!
