I don’t know where to start really. The positives were that the room and the balcony area were lovely & always cleaned to high standards. The monkeys were a bonus & we felt very comfortable around them, you can tell they are used to people very entertaining! The beach is poor it isn’t what it looks like in the photos... More

Dear Jade F Thank you for sharing your comments following your recent stay at our resort. I am sorry we did not meet your expectation on this occasion. I can appreciate arriving to four days of continuous rain would not be a great start to your hotel, but unfortunately this is a risk when you travel during the monsoon season.... More

First off all, I must say that we had two good days at the resort with sunshine both days! However, I believe that this hotel has seen better days. It opened in 2006 and must have been one of the most beautiful resorts in the world at that time. 8 years later this is not longer the case. It is... More

The Centara Grand was the 3rd stop on our recent trip to Thailand. We initially planned on staying for 6 nights but checked out early after 4 nights. The most impressive thing for us with this resort was the location which is absolutely stunning. The hotel grounds/ pool area are also very nice albeit the furniture a bit tired. They... More

My family and I stayed in this hotel for 10 nights. The pools are lovely and the views are great. What was even better was having the beach so near by!

After reading a lot of reviews about this hotel, my partner and I braced ourselves for the scary boat journey into the resort, the aggressive monkeys, the run-down rooms and the overpriced food, but both of us have been pleasantly surprised. Starting with the negatives (which are the only reasons we have not given the resort 5 stars): 1. The... More

Arrived the 2. August 2014 and stayed for two nights. Great location, but only reached by scheduled boat or longtail from the pier, but the hotel managed that quite well. The hotel is built in 2006, but really need a lot of improvement of the common areas such as the pool where the tiles are starting to fall off. In... More

Great hotel. Cleanliness is great but general hotel maintenance could be improved (eg. Broken tiles on restaurant steps). Fantastic views and nicely laid out grounds. Staff were helpful and attentive (contrary to other reviews).Bad sea meant we couldn't get boat in which was disappointing; walked over monkey trail with staff carrying suitcases! Also no snorkelling or boat trips possible when... More
