I loved this hotel. It's hard to get to and you arrive by boat, but that wasn't a problem and I quite liked the remoteness. It's built around a small bay and private beach with the central areas and dining near the shore and the various villas and rooms going up the mountain behind this. TO get to the nearest... More

Rooms - comfortable beds, really nicely done out, great balconies for staring out to sea 2. Pools - right by... More

just returned from a visit with my 4 children who loved it! Lucky to have a 2 bed beach villa, very large accommodation, very clean and only steps from the beach. Club room was great, particularly the canapes at 5.30. Breakfast good as was the Thai restaurant and pool bar. No issues at all with service and I am not... More

We stayed for 10 nights in early April. Transfers were seamless and we waited no longer than 5 minutes for the boat. We were met off the Boat by Suun, a lovely helpful guy who assisted us with check in. We upgraded from a Spa Deluxe Ocean facing room to a "Pool Villa" because hey, you only live once!! and... More

Centara was the second stop on our trip in Thailand where my husband and I came to celebrate our anniversary. It is really difficult to rate this hotel because of its absolutely amazing location and picturesque hotel grounds and beach but on the other hand inconsistent service. However, despite several niggles, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would probably... More

Keep your doors locked or the monkeys will get in! Seriously, and they are adept at opening the minibar and opening the beer cans...! A lovely resort, but it is remote. You have to by boat everywhere. We did an excellent excursion to Phi Phi islands but the boat was full which left no space. However the snorkelling was amazing.... More
