Centara Ras Fushi Resort and Spa Maldives now open
Located on an island just 15 minutes by speedboat from Male International Airport, the premium four-star resort is set against a natural backdrop of a pristine sandy beach and a lagoon with a house reef.
All 140 suites and villas are designed to blend into the rich green interior of the island, with the villas offering the choice of beachside or over-water, with the former featuring individual gardens and the latter having steps that lead directly down to the lagoon.
Both the beach and the water villas offer the option of an outdoor Jacuzzi.
Centara Ras Fushi Resort&Spa Maldives is designed for the adult travel market, and will appeal to couples and small groups of friends traveling together.
Two options are available for accommodation. The Half Board Plus concept includes breakfast and dinner, with an open bar for 3 hours during evening mealtimes, while the All-Inclusive package includes all meals and a full open bar served from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm daily.
Guests have a broad choice for dining. Oceans is the all-day restaurant, with a thatched roof and sand floor, serving the flavors of Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America. Suan Bua offers authentic Thai cuisine; Al Khaimah is reminiscent of a Bedouin tent and serves Arabian cuisine; while La Brezza has a romantic view over the ocean, serves Italian cuisine with seafood as a speciality, and is home to the resort’s wine cave.
Spa Cenvaree, Centara’s own luxury spa brand, has its own dedicated area of beach and a relaxation pavilion, and there is a water sports and PADI dive center. Some of the best-known diving spots in the Maldives, including Giraavaru Cave, Kiki Reef, Kuda Haa, Lion’s Head, and Shark Point are within a 20-minute boat ride of the resort.
The proximity of the island to the capital island of Male is another attraction for guests, with shopping and sightseeing trips arranged by the resort.
