Centara’s top-rated Maldives resort opens Middle East restaurant

BANGKOK, Thailand - The opening on July 15 of Al Khaima, the first Arabian Bedouin tent-style restaurant in the Maldives, will mark the official full opening of Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa Maldives, a resort that soft-opened on April 15 this year and which in its first six weeks of operations shot to the number one position on TripAdvisor as North Male Atoll’s favorite destination for honeymoons.


The villa-only resort, located just 15 minutes by speedboat from Male International Airport, is adult-focused with no guests under the age of 12 years accommodated.


In addition to Al Khaima, Centara Ras Fushi has La Brezza, an Italian restaurant sited next to the lagoon, Suan Bua, which serves authentic Thai food, and Oceans, open all day and serving international and Asian cuisines.


There are three bars at the resort, serving snacks in addition to drinks, with in-villa dining available 24 hours.


The resort offers guests the choice of a Half Board Plus package, or All Inclusive, with guests on either program having the opportunity to dine at any of the restaurants and fully enjoy the choice and variety of the resort.


“We are very pleased to announce that Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa is now fully open, and that our guests have the choice of four fine restaurants,” says Thirayuth Chirathivat, Chief Executive Officer of Centara Hotels & Resorts.


“The Maldives is, we feel, one of the world’s most exciting holiday destinations, and we are delighted to be an active promoter of tourism to these lovely islands.”


The resort is Centara’s second in the Maldives, the first being Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa, in South Ari Atoll. A third resort is currently under construction.


Centara Ras Fushi Resort has a beachfront swimming pool, an oceanfront Spa Cenvaree, a water sports center offering excursions and both motorized and non-motorized activities, a PADI dive center, and complimentary Wi-Fi.


The resort’s top ranking on TripAdvisor for honeymoons was won in the face of competition from 30 other resorts in the North Male Atoll.


Centara Hotels & Resorts is Thailand's leading operator of hotels, with 41 deluxe and first-class properties covering all the major tourist destinations in the Kingdom. A further 17 resorts in the Maldives, Vietnam, Shanghai, Bali Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Mauritius Indian Ocean, brings the present total to 58 properties. Brands and properties within Centara ensure that specific categories such as couples, families, individuals, and meetings and incentives groups will all find a hotel or resort that is appropriate to their needs.
