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 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.

The food was delicious, and plentiful. The buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner had so many choices and catered for all. The other 3 restaurants had great size portions. The staff were so friendly, attentive and polite. The rooms were clean and spacious.

Stayed here for our honeymoon..in general enjoyed our stay a lot. Our room was a deluxe water villa and very very nice. We enjoyed a couple of spa treatments and they were amazing although too expensive, one massage is minimum 170 USD for 60 mins! Had some issues on arrival, we were booked as Gold All Inklusive but the receptionist did not want to believe us as our reservation just said All Inklusive Plus. So, she just ignored me and after insisting her to call the agency who did the reservation in the end it turned out we were right and had Gold All Inklusive. I would have expected a receptionist of a 5 star hotel to believe me and straight away check before telling me I am wrong. The food in the restaurants was good...the best is the Arabian restaurant, however only included in Gold All Inklusive. The Italian restaurant was okay...the rest good. We would not come back as we think price/quality is not quite right here, too expensive, but we enjoyed our honeymoon a lot and had a great time. Read less

Our stay was very memorable because of this resort. We chose this as our honeymoon vacation. The food were delicious and the place was very clean. We rented the Deluxe Spa over Water Villa. We were well taken care of to and from the hotel. We will definitely come back, hopefully with friends and family!

Snorkeling every day off the privacy of our own deck and relaxing every evening in our spa watching the sunset before dinner at one of the restaurants with beautiful live music/singing. Amazing!
