Following the release of Lonely Planet’s annual travel guide, Centara showcases spectacular stays in Sri Lanka and the Maldives
Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thailand’s leading hospitality group, is inviting guests to experience the “Best in Travel” in the Indian Ocean in 2019, with a choice of three stunning resorts in Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel guide, the annual best-seller that ranks the world’s top destinations for the year ahead, picked Sri Lanka as the world’s best country for 2019 and the Maldives as one of the best-value destinations.
The guide praised Sri Lanka for its “mix of religions and cultures, its timeless temples, its rich and accessible wildlife, its growing surf scene and its people who defy all odds by their welcome and friendliness”.
Nestled on a strip of land between the Bentota River and Indian Ocean, Centara Ceysands Resort & Spa showcases the finest qualities of Sri Lanka, including its timeless hospitality, exquisite cuisine and extensive opportunities for water sports. With a selection of spacious rooms, each featuring balcony overlooking the lush mangroves or azure ocean, this idyllic upscale resort provides the perfect base for any Sri Lankan adventure.
Under the “Meal Plan Upgrades” promotion, guests who book a two-night stay before 30 June 2019 will receive free Wi-Fi and a complimentary upgrade to the next meal plan. For example, guests who book a half-board stay will be automatically upgraded to full-board. CLICK HERE for more information and reservations.
Lonely Planet said that new experiences are “bringing visitors close to what can be the otherwise elusive Maldivian culture”. Centara offers two award-winning luxury resorts in the Maldives that are making the country more accessible than ever before, with an extensive array of tropical experiences and activities.
Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa is a luxury island retreat with beachfront and over-water villas plus a wealth of facilities for every type of stay, from romantic couples’ breaks to fun-filled family holidays. Nestled in the idyllic South Ari Atoll, this five-star resort promises serene natural beauty with palm-shaded beaches and a shimmering lagoon.
Alternatively, Centara Ras Fushi Resort & Spa is an enchanting adults-only resort nestled on a pristine island just 20 minutes away from Malé International Airport by speedboat. This makes it easily accessible not only for long tropical holidays, but also for short breaks – the ultimate weekend retreat. Guests can choose a villa on the beach or above the reef, play in the lagoon, relax in the spa or delight in world-class dining.
Adding even more value to the Maldives, Centara is inviting guests to stay in paradise for up to 30% less in 2019! Book a choice of accommodation (beachfront or over-water) at either resort before 30 June 2019, for stays before 23 December 2019, and enjoy 20% off and free transfers from and to Malé International Airport. Members of CentaraThe1 will enjoy an extra 10% off!
Guests can even combine these two spectacular destinations with two-centre stays in Sri Lanka and the Maldives with Centara. Several airlines provide direct flights between Colombo and Malé, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Indian Ocean. Booking direct with Centara will also guarantee the best hotel rates.
