The Centara was beautiful and the family thoroughly enjoyed it. The resort and the grounds are beautiful, the pool is great, and the beach location is fantastic. There are loads of shops, restaurants and tailors right out front if you want them and service was excellent.. I would highly recommend staying here and would come back again, but we were... More

An amazing resort, beautiful well maintained grounds in lush green surroundings with clean inviting pools. The beach is the cleanest in Chaweng with fine powdery sand. Breakfast - a wide selection, OK. Rooms - a bit dated but kept clean and serviced daily. Also called in every night to replace towels or any amenities. 10 minute walk to centre of... More

We have just returned following a 10 day stay. This was our first visit to Thailand and the Centara Grand was a great choice as our base on Koh Samui. There is little negative we can say, rooms were more than comfortable, the hotel facilities excellent, particularly the pool which we felt was brilliant, I don't think I have ever... More

I had an absolute ball at this hotel/resort. As we were on honeymoon, we said we would splash out and opted for club level benefits. Best decision ever. We were looked after by a separate team of staff who just work on the club level. This included check in/check out, breakfast, snacks and drinks any time during the day, etc.... More

This is our second stay at the Centara in Chaweng Beach and although we didn't think it possible it was even better the second time. We had a fantastic large room on the top level overlooking the sea and swimming pool. The setting around the pool to the beach is awesome and much of our time was spent just relaxing... More

Dear Malcom C, Thank you for reviewing your second stay with us. We smiled when reading you thought it was even better the second time.

A bit late to the party in writing this review but only just realised I never wrote it so here goes! We arrived after a long flight to a lovely welcome.

MrsGav, Thank you for sharing your review of your stay in a deluxe pool suite. We’ve got to thank you for pointing out you always found sunbeds for the day. Some guests worry unnecessarily about that. We’re glad you made your way to Coast and ate there for breakfast every morning. It really is the perfect place to gaze out... More

Probably one of the best locations on Chaweng beach. A great resort, with good facilities and staff. Thoroughly enjoyed both the pool and beach. Would recommend the resort to families as it had a kids club as well. Breakfast buffet was ok and enough variety to get you through the day.

My second visit to grand centra Koh Samui and once again had an enjoyable stay but feel there is room for some improvements in some areas.

Great hotel - best on the island. By far the best hotel in Chaweng on a lovely white sand beach. Fantastic grounds, pool, bar and restaurant with the most friendly staff. Quite well located just a 10 min stroll to Chaweng centre. Would definitely return
