We booked transfers and accommodation with Hayes and Jarvis who, unfortunately, did not organise the transfers. We managed to secure a ride in a minibus fom the airport after half an hour of waiting thanks to the rep there. On arrival at the hotel, we were given the most fantastic room with the best views(1225) however, not long after, reception... More

Just back from our second stay at the Centara Krabi. (First time 2 years ago.) We loved everything about this place. From the moment you check in at the reception area in Ao Nang town, to the speedboat transfer, the beautiful location, friendly ,helpful staff, and very comfortable rooms all made for a wonderful trip. We e-mailed ahead to request... More

My wife and I stated here during our honeymoon. We had a wonderful experience at the hotel. The room was as described and expected. We reserved the room with the hot tub on the deck, which worked out perfectly for late afternoon summer showers. The service was very good. The staff is was very accommodating. We asked for a picnic... More

We stayed at the Centara for 5 nights after spending 7 nights at the wonderful and luxurious Banyan Tree in Phuket. Perhaps we had been spoilt by our stay at the Banyan Tree and our expectations were quite high. The hotel claims to be 5* but this is definately not the case (in my opinion!). I would rate this more... More

We arrived at the Centara on a Friday afternoon, hoping to book two day tours (Phrang Nga and cave kayaking) only to be told that all the tours for the 3-day duration of our stay were sold out. I suggested to the events staff that we could go with another tour operator but he insisted that he had contacted all... More

We stayed at the Centara at the beginning of January, however we were so disappointed with it I wanted to calm down before writing a review. It all started when we arrived. It was indicated that our club room had been upgraded. When we were shown our room it was stuck behind another group of buildings. We were paying AUD$842... More

Our stay at the Centara was our 2nd week in Thailand, having stayed the previous week at The Sarojin in Khao lak and getting married there. We wanted to go to Krabi as we had hoped to travel to all the other attractions in the area, Phi Phi etc. On our arrival we were asked if wanted wanted to upgrade... More

We thought this hotel was really nice. In particular the room was beautiful and the view over the bay incredible. It isn't the most pristine of five star hotels (in fact Trailfinders lists it as a four star) but for the price I felt it was value for money. I stayed at this hotel in Feb 08 for five nights...

* Location: extraordinary. Surrounded by the National Park of Krabi and having the most amazing sea view. * Rooms: more than spacious, clean, modern and luxurious. * Service: more than perfect. The staff is very friendly, helpful and highly trained for a 5* resort. We got royal treatment by all the staff.
