Centara Grand Island Resort and Spa Maldives has won the Golden Award 2011 for Best Hotel in Indian Ocean.

Centara's Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing Chris Bailey received the award, which is presented by Virgin Holidays, during the World Travel Mart held in London in November.

"The resort opened late in 2009 and has been immensely successful," Bailey said.

Centara Grand, managed by Thailand's largest hotel operator Centara Hotels and Resorts, is designed in a colonial style with whitewashed timber buildings and meandering boardwalks that lead to the guest accommodation, restaurants and other facilities.

The resort offers a choice of 112 suites and villas suitable for individual travellers, honeymoon couples and family groups, along with a "resort within a resort" accommodation experience, the Island Club.

The resort also features a variety of dining options, pools, recreation activities, sports and fitness facilities, a bar and lounge with nightly entertainment, a SPA Cenvaree, and a Kids' Club.

Centara Hotels and Resorts will open its second resort in the Maldives next year, Centara Giraavaru Resort and Spa.
