Just returned from a family gathering of 6 adults and 6 children with each family staying in a family suite next to the pool for 9 nights. The suite was spacious well decorated with a walk in shower and kept very clean on a daily basis. There was a kitchen with microwave, much needed fridge and powerful air conditioning. The... More

Recently spent 2 weeks here with a family party of 9. Beautiful location both for it's stunning view of the mountain side from the Emerald pool & being situated in the cultural centre of the town. Lovely staff members, particularly the cleaning ladies & the lads down at the towel exchange area. The facilities within the hotel complex were very... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was huge - our kids slept on a sofa bed with slide out divan in the lounge room. The apartment had a kitchenette with full size fridge, microwave and all the... More

The quality of this hotel is great. The food was impressive at both restaurants and the pools (2) were very clean. A great central spot to stay with shops and restaurants just outside the resort. The staff are friendly and helpful most of the time. Would definitely stay there again. It's a 5 minute walk to Kata Beach if you... More

Our family of 4 and another family of 4 just spent 6 nights here. Absolutely loved the gardens (even if they attracted the mozzies), they were very pretty and lush providing lots of privacy. The pools were gorgeous and having 2 (3rd adults only) to choose from was great as we followed the shade. Rooms are good value for money.... More

Our room was on the top floor with no lifts, however room was OK. Pool was great when the slide was working, Had plenty of activities but never ran when scheduled, so our... More

From the time we checked in here the staff could not have been nicer. We were checked in sitting in reception with a welcome drink and hot towels which were very lovely. We had been on a ferry from Krabi and were a bit shattered. All check in details were looked after by a lovely staff member and then we... More

We stayed at Centara Kata for a couple of weeks in late March and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this resort. The staff and service were excellent and we had a great outlook to the "Waves" pool from our ground floor room. The walk to both the northern and southern ends of Kata Beach wasn't too difficult (about... More
