One review of “Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives

  1. Guangxin Rong / August 7, 2013

    It’s a great resort that I have been. The people were very nice, and the view is fantasic.
    But the buffet resturant was too hot and without air condition or wind, so have a meal is not comfortable.
