We arrived at hotel on March 7 and stayed for 10 nights. Prior to arriving I received email from Tripadvisor listing the top 10 hotel rooms with spectacular views. Centara Grand was not on list , but it really should be. The room from my room matched anything on the list. I was concerned before we arrived about negative reviews... More

Having read previous reviews which differed widely we weren't sure what to expect. What we experienced was a peaceful, well appointed hotel on a secluded beach with plenty of facilities and great service from very friendly staff. We had a pool villa which was fab but lacked privacy being very near the pool. A sectiioned off area for the 2... More

As the last stop on our Southeast Asia holiday, my husband and I stayed at the Centara Grand for eight nights at the beginning of March and are still in raptures! There is little I can add about the breathtaking location – it is just that. The limestone cliffs at the back of the resort, the wonderful lush tropical vegetation... More

Before staying at Centara I read the reviews on a weekly basis and they were either brilliant or terrible thus the title of my review. I really loved it because of the outstanding location. Being surrounded by the stunning cliffs, relaxing by the beach and just "kicking back" fantastic. We found the staff very good and very helpful plus they... More

This was our third holiday in Thailand over the last 20 years. The Hotel itself is very nice. We had a really lovely room with superb view. Huge balcony with Jacuzzi, sun beds, chaise longue, dining table and chairs. The bedroom was large with excellent bath and shower facilities. The staff were charming. TIP: Ensure you pay for ‘club’ –... More
