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.

Wow, where do u start...you arrive by Boat to a Beautiful greeting by staff, you then go to check in and u just admire the surroundings. We asked for an upgrade to a Premier Sunset with Jacuzzi sweet and were granted it but there was only a small fee to pay. We walked into our room and just wow.....steps straight down into the ocean and 2 pool beds on the back balcony with a spa. Dividers close off all other areas so no one can see you. Sit back, have a drink or 10 and just enjoy the serenity, then get in for a swim and go back to just chilling. My kind of place...loved it and will be back 1000%. Food and drinks amazing! Read less

The employees in the resort are kind and service well. The food in the Thai restaurant is really spicy though we remind the waiter to reduce the spice. The Italian restaurant tastes good. It'll be perfect if there's no plastic bottle or garbage floating on the sea surface or lay on the beach. The employee does clean the environment very hard.… Read more

Maybe the garbage comes from some other tourist. Read less

We’re recently back from 12 great days at this resort. We wanted a relaxing holiday, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Food was excellent at the 4 restaurants, beaches are what you would wish for, and the sea was beautifully clear for swimming and snorkeling. However the real star of this resort is its staff, always attentive and looking to engage with us and look to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Special thanks to Meeau, Munhid, Adey, Gayan, Rubel, Juman, Mama, Raja, Aksam, Rock & Don, and the lovely Rubi who is so sweet. Shuvo our room attendant is a super guy and looked after us and our room extremely well. Little insight: all the restaurants bar the Arabian have sand underfoot so I’d recommend just bringing your flip flops. Read less

Plenty of good food options. Especially Thai food given that this is a Thai owned resort. Very conveniently located close to the male airport. Hence perfect for shorter 3-4 day like trips. Over water spa villas are a must
