Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

The adult-oriented Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa offers a truly serene atmosphere in idyllic island surrounds. Beach Villas and Water Villas are scattered around the island, allowing for peace and tranquility aplenty. Upgrade to a Deluxe Spa Over Water Villa or a Premium Deluxe Spa Water Villa and you’ll have your own private outdoor spa bathtub. Down at the beach is an oceanfront pool and well-being area, aptly named as you’ll feel very well indeed here. You can also spoil yourself to a treatment or two at the Spa Cenvaree, a blissful sanctuary offering Thai massage as well as ancient Ayurvedic treatments to banish any lingering cares. With the resort in such a great location there's a plethora of stunning scuba diving sites, amongst the Maldives’ most sought-after spots, reached within 20 minutes by dhoni. There’s also snorkelling and both non-motorised and motorised water sports to tempt you. Island dining is a treat at the Centara with several superb restaurants to choose from. Oceans Restaurant serves International, Asian and daily themed buffets while Al Khaimah features an authentic Bedouin tent with Middle Eastern-style grilled meats to feast on and Arabic delights. Alternatively, dine Italian style at La Brezza or on Thai fare at Suan Bua, two speciality restaurants that overlook the beachfront pool. Overwater Viu Bar is one of the highlights of the resort and deservedly so, its circular shape and oversized hammock seating affording unobstructed ocean views. There’s also a very popular pool bar to while away an hour or two, sipping on exotic cocktails.

Centara had he most amazing staff and food. Upon arriving, the staff was so helpful and the island was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights and each night we explored the different cuisines they provided. Our favorite was Thai! The island was so accommodating. There was a "quiet" pool for days that you wanted to relax and enjoy nature, and the bar pool which allowed you to spend time with other vacationers. The beaches were beautiful & the water sports were great! This was one of the best vacations of my life! I cannot wait to go again! Read less

We stayed at Centara for our 10 year wedding anniversary and loved it. We had an all inclusive package and thought that was really good value for money. The food was great and the service was good. We tried the day spa and enjoyed it. Was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday.

Arrived to the normal friendly greeting and were happy to be given the requested room.Immediately we noticed the improved sunbeds much more comfortable. Apart from breakfast we do not use the buffet preferring A La Carte dining.The menu choices and the taste of all our meals was excellent even better than the previous 3 visits.Our favourite restaurant became the Arabian with fantastic flavours and good sized portions,often we could only manage 2 courses.One of the desserts beginning with a K was amazing we remembered it from the previous year.Another resort improvement was most of the seating now had a back,the lack of one used to put me off dining there.The two female staff running the restaurant were the nicest girls you could wish to meet. Love both the Vui bar for morning cocktails,nothing better than gazing at the beautiful water and the lobby bar for evening cappuccinos. As the holiday progressed people departed and were not replaced.Our last few days became stressful after learning Emirates cancelled our return flight and all flights before then were full.Eventually there were just a few of us left all in the same position. The staff must have felt stressed also as they to had to return home,but it never showed they remained happy and cheerful. Evening dining tables were laid up on the beach which must have caused the staff extra work,I would have been happy to stay in the restaurants but the atmosphere on the beach was very pleasant.We enjoyed the band until they departed better from our beach table as we like it peaceful and could choose a table further away from them.The lady in charge of the Italian restaurant was usually working,she is also a great efficient member of staff. Having secured a very expensive BA flight home we departed being accompanied by a hotel representative at the airport until we passed along to security which was very comforting in case problems occurred.Emirates still haven’t refunded me and I didn’t need the hassle. We hope to visit again one day but I still feel shaken up by our experience and the ongoing hassle I am having with other holidays I have booked so I will not be booking any more at the moment.
