All the extra bathroom products great, zinc after sun lotion etc. Breakfast buffet was lovely and more than plenty to choose from. Staff were attentive for us and... More

We stayed at the Centara Grand with our family (children 3 & 5), for 1 week during the 3rd week of June. We chose to stay in the Premium Deluxe Ocean View Room with 2 double beds. The room was huge and had 2 spacious balcony areas. The bathroom was excellent as well, with an open shower and very large... More

It's like living in the middle of the jungle. Wild monkeys on your terrace in the morning, beautiful surroundings and a very nice and polite staff. The food in the different restaurants is very good. The beach on the food of the resort is beautiful as well. The hotel room is also very, very nice. Modern, new, clean and functional.

Beautiful resort that gets the big stuff right but fails terribly on the details. Coffee in your room? No. Sensible easy to use free wifi? No. User friendly dining. No. Helpful wait staff? No. Spectacular vistas? Yes. Beautiful grounds? Yes. Sky high prices? Yes. Depends on your priorities I suppose.

stayed at this hotel in April 2014 and it is probably the one of the most beautiful hotels i have stayed in in terms of location however the service REALLY lets it down. Its certainly is not a 5* hotel. The lack of service started as soon as we got to the jetty for our boat transfer (this is the... More

We had a lovely time at Centara. I had done my research and knew that this resort was remote and that boats and (at the time of booking) that the Monkey Trail were the options for getting into Ao Nang. We were however, sad to find out two weeks before we arrived that the Monkey Trail had closed, but we... More

We stayed at this resort for 4 nights for our honeymoon. We were so looking forward to this stay and unfortunately we were slightly disappointed. The resort looks magnificent from the beach and has huge potential but they are letting themselves down in attention to detail. Just as one example, the linen and towels were always stained or torn and... More

First, despite what the hotel advertises, it is in “close proximity” to NOTHING. Now, on to the unbelievably misguiding verbiage that is a lawsuit waiting to happen. The hotel nonchalantly states at the very bottom of the listing we booked from “Guests must transfer via boat to the property.” Here are a few pieces of somewhat important information… 1) Note...
