Two Centara properties in the Maldives are offering all-inclusive packages with experiences such as whale shark spotting and underwater adventures in a semi-submarine.
At the adults-only Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa, the Gold All-Inclusive package entitles guests to up to three dives per villa, per week. Guests can enjoy daytime and night-time dives at dive sites including Giraavaru Cave, Kuda Haa, Shark Point, Lion’s Head, Kuda Faru and Kikki Reef.
The famous wreck of the Maldives Victory ship is also less than one hour away, and guests who want to get up close to the world’s biggest fish – the whale shark – can join dedicated snorkelling trips.
Other inclusions in the package are a semi-submarine tour, six meals per day, an open bar, a complimentary mini-bar that gets replenished daily, laundry, complimentary spa treatments and unlimited use of non-motorised water sports.
Every villa at the resort – which features 140 beachfront and overwater villas in the North Malé Atoll – is designed with couples in mind, including options with outdoor bathtubs and hammocks suspended over the lagoon.
Over at the more family-friendly Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives, the Ultimate All-Inclusive package includes three dives per person, per week; shore dives; boat trips; dive courses; semi-submersible trips; daily dining experiences, mini-bars replenished daily; and spa credits.
The house reef is just off the coast on the island in the South Ari Atoll, and guests can also visit the wreck of MV Kudi Maa, which attracts species including turtles, manta rays and whale sharks.
Also included are activities such as island excursions, water skiing, wake boarding, banana boating, parasailing and sunset fishing.
Suites and villas at the family-friendly resort range from 86m² to 159m² and can accommodate up to five guests.
Both resorts offer unlimited snorkelling opportunities as well as free airport transfers (conditions apply).
