We had very high hopes having poured over the brochures. Also, having been assured that "..there is nothing to pay for except motorised sports and one or two premium drinks...". So we were more than disappointed at our crumbling accommodation which bore no resemblance to the brochure images. The bath (admittedly in an outside area) was very dirty, the general... More

We've just returned from 10nights holiday at the Centara. We had one of the lovely plunge pool room on the beach front. Fantastic view from our bed which was framed in between 2 tree trunks.

Last year I went to Centara Ras Fushi which is brand new in 2013 so this time I would like to try the new experiences of Thai hospitality so we chose the Centara Grand. I'm very impress with the resort lay out. All villas are very nice design and spacious. All inclusive is very good idea when you stay in... More

Just back from Centara and had the most amazing time. Met so many lovely friendly people and the kids even have a Korean pen pal now. It is hard to find fault with this place and having read numerous reviews on Trip Advisor prior to holidaying here regarding décor and not been a five star resort, I wasn’t sure what... More

The island is undergoing renervation and all the public venues have been upgraded. The villas were a little 'tired' but perfectly acceptable and these are next on the upgrade list but we expect the price will go up once it is all finished. The service and food were exceptional and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. There is an evening... More

We stayed at the Centara Grand Resort and Spa for 8 days for our honeymoon. We went there to relax and unwind and that’s what we did. The resort offered a wide range of watersports and excursions.
