For the second consecutive year, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives has been named as the ‘Leading Family Resort’ at the 2013 Maldives Travel Awards. The Awards are presented each year by the Maldives Association of Travel Agents & Tour Operators, which represents more than 50 organisations in the Maldives. The awards are selected based on online votes from travel agents, operators and guests, and also on a rigorous inspection by judges, which includes a judging panel in Male and a visit by judges to the resorts. Accommodation is designed especially for families, with the exclusive Water Villas fitted with child safety features, plush bunk beds and a PlayStation 3.
The two-bedroom Pool Villas are family-friendly with one of the bedrooms equipped with twin beds. The Kids’ Club features an E-Zone for teenagers, with videos, PlayStation 3, pool tables, air hockey, snooker, table tennis and other games, while Camp Safari is a separate zone for younger children, offering supervised activities. All of these benefits for families are offered as a complimentary extra for guests of the resort. www.centarahotelsresorts.com/centaragrand/cirm/
