Virgin rating

The hotel

The adult-only 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 Overwater Villa with Swirl Pool 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.

Amazing resort. We went for our honeymoon and the hospitality of the staff was excellent. The staff including Mamun, Nadia, and many others went above and beyond to make it an unforgettable trip. The quality of the food was great and the snorkelling was unbelievable.

The best 2 weeks escape for our honeymoon. For the moment we arrived the service was exceptional, a bottle of bubbly and palm art work on the bed in our villa, was an amazing surprise, 1 of many throughout our stay! Although advertised as a 4 star they definitely provide a 5 star service. From housekeeping to dining the service was exceptional. A special mention for Ageel from housekeeping who went above and beyond to ensure all our needs were met, thank you Ageel. To Amber, Afaa and all the waiters who always greeted us at meal times with a friendly smile, working extremely hard despite the heat! A big shout out to Mama - for the best omelettes, thank you. All the facilities are spotlessly clean and the attention to detail doesn’t go unnoticed with activities and special evenings held most nights on the beach from cocktails to films under the stars, the set ups at night were another highlight. I would not hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone who wants to experience escapism surrounded by beautiful nature. We stayed in over water villa 319 - highly recommended, not to far from the bar but far enough that your not disturbed and an oasis for the tens of fish who sought shelter underneath our villa. Watching the sunrise over a calm sea with all the vibrant coral life is a must. We very much look forward to returning one day to our new happy place. Thank you to everyone at Centara Maldives for a memorable honeymoon. Read less

Stayed for a week in the over water villa. The resort is small but things are well kept. View from the villa is fine but there was constant works happening over the distant beach we facing where there were tankers moving in and out during our stay, disrupting the view a bit. Food was fine at the 4 restaurants available, though the buffet at the Oceans restaurant could use more varieties. Service was a mixed bag. On one hand we had amazing services at the Suan Bua and the Viu bar, but some of the staff at the La Brezza was so unbelievably rude we couldn't believe we were staying at resort in the Maldives. They don't greet, barely respond when talked to, inattentive and repeatedly ask for our room no when we just told them minutes before when we were seated, and in such an standoffish tone throughout. Housekeeping staff was nice and did their job well but a bit on the slow side, so adjust your expectations accordingly. Overall a nice little resort hardwarewise but for all the good it does the service we received soured the whole experience in such a big way. We have been to the Maldives a couple of time and never felt so unwelcomed at a particular resort, not only in the Maldives but anywhere else. Would really recommend people to look elsewhere, for the price you pay there are numerous better options availble. Read less
