My family stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Its location is quite unique and is assessable by boat only. Very quite and nice beach. However, the room is not particularly clean. What is even worse is the management! On the night before leaving, we received a hotel notice saying that they would come and pick up our luggage at... More

The location is a bit disconnected but that has its own pros and cons. pros- secluded and private beach. cons- you need to wait for the hotel speed boat to get to any close by tourist spot. the property is gorgeous. Though you would have to do a lot of walking inside. Food & beverages are expensive in comparison to... More

The resort is at a perfect location it cant be a better visual in ao nang from what we see from this place.

The hotel settles in a private beach, surrounded by mountains and it’s only reachable by boat. Actually, there’s a mountain trail along the coast that connects directly to Ao Nang beach. However, it’s not easy to go through and definitely not suitable for all ages. For your information Ao Nang is a famous beach/area in Krabi and it’s full of... More

Over the last few years we have stayed in a number of 5 star resorts throughout Thailand and Asia, and after spending five nights in the Centara Grand Beach Resort during June I would class the hotel as a good 4 star but not a 5 star. The resort has a number of qualities, one of which is the fantastic... More

Finished off a 12 night trip around Thailand October 14 with 2 nights at this hotel. Compared to anantara bangkok and santhiya koh yoh yai, this was way behind but if I had stayed here first, I would have thought it was great. Saying that, breakfast was great - in fact, excellent!

We have had spent a great time here, the Resort is very beautiful and all staffs were very friendly. Some food at "On The Rocks" were very delicious especially Phat Thai. Excellent service, thanks to Wut, Susi, Tip, Sica, Maew, Sheena from "On The Rocks" and also thanks to K. Nam FO. Anyhow we loved the swimming Pool here. :)
