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.

We stayed 2 nights in beach villa and 2 nights in water villa. While water villa was amazing, the beach villa wasn't upto the mark because of its architecture. The bathrooms in beach villa is connected to the main entry door and one cannot even answer the room service if you are using the washroom. The scuba diving for beginners is sort of very boring. It feels like you have come to see the water desert. There is hardly any marine life and it is really really expensive. We had to do our Covid test to be able to come back to India and the test was done at $150 per person in Maldives. This is the highest rate in the world. In India the same test happens for $7. This completely ruins your budget if you are with your family. Apart from above, it is indeed a great place, food is good at LA Brezza restaurant, staff is helpful, ocean views are perfect and the resort is really scenic. Read less

Where to begin... the staff were simply exceptional, the location spectacular and you leave wanting to come back ASAP! We experienced a romantic, relaxing, fun and adventurous trip (we got our PADI Open Water Certificate). Thank you for everything at Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa for making our stay one of a kind!
