      The food was amazing and had variety of dishes for each cuisine. For example, Indian food had rice, soups, vegetables and few entrees for the buffet each serving(breakfast, lunch, dinner). The staff was extremely nice and tentative to any needs.

      My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon at Centara Grand in the Maldives this past week. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrive by seaplane to the island. We were welcomed by the entire staff, all with smiles on their faces. Within no time we were escorted to our room. We stayed in the Deluxe Over Water Villa and had the Ultimate All Inclusive Package. After settling in, I began to question our stay at Centara Grand because I did not fully understand their “Ultimate All Inclusive Package”, I assumed we would be able to eat and drink whatever we wanted, where ever we wanted. You get served 3 meals a day, and the rest is a la carte. Certain alcoholic beverages were not included in this package either. As I was unhappy, I contacted their customer service. This is when my new friend, Alok (executive housekeeper) came in and took over. We met at the lobby and went over everything that was included in our package. He took care of all of our reservations and appointments. From this point on, our honeymoon became exactly what we dreamed it would be. Alok is one of the friendliest and most accommodating people I have ever met in my life. He could work at any of the high end resorts in the Maldives. The food at all the restaurants was excellent. The couples massage was one of the best massages we have ever had. The only thing I wish we did sooner was upgrade to the Sunset Pool Villa. We want to thank the staff at Centara Grand for making our honeymoon so special!
