Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa – Hotel Reviews

Discover an enchanting and pristine island with picturesque white powdery beaches and aqua blue water. Centara Ras Fushi resort has endless opportunities to relax and
enjoy beautiful Maldives setting in a laid-back ambiance.

We arrived at Male airport in Maldives to find various hotel counters right outside the airport. We met with the representative of CRF resort who verified our names and escorted us to the speed boat. We did not make any phone calls or inquiry. Everything was well-planned and managed. It was though, raining very heavily and the winds were giving us all a very hard time. We were warned the boat ride to the resort would be very bumpy. Did we choose a wrong time to travel, we wondered. But December was not even their rainy season!

How was the welcome made?

As soon as we stepped out from the speed boat, the heavens opened their gates letting the sun shine out bright. And that cyclone-like weather stopped. Oh, Thank God!

There were many hotel staffs standing in-line to welcome us. It felt warm and friendly. We sat in the lounge and were offered wet towels and refreshing welcome drink.  We were given a detail description of all the facilities & amenities included in our package, food options, map of the island etc.

Best part of the lounge, there is no flooring but actual sand under your feet.

These water villas are amazing and offers the most spectacular view of the Indian Ocean.  It had a tub and stairs to the lagoon. Birds of all sizes were our frequent visitors in our balcony and the stairs down to the lagoon had like bit, fat crabs hiding on it!

Food options

They have 4 restaurants on the island – 1) Oceans restaurant serves buffet menu offering different cuisines on each day 2) La Brezza serves Italian 3) Suan Bua serves Thai and 4) Al Khaimah serves Arabic. All this will be inclusive in your package if you pick the right one. See here

There were three bars on the island – one that served inside the pool was our favourite. There were little huts built inside the ocean as well where one could sit and have a drink. However, the ocean waves are very strong and they hit hard. It is a lot of fun here though… hahaha
