I have just arrived with my husband approximately 4 hours ago and I am actually going to try leave tomorrow. We paid $30 for transportation to the hotel from the airport including a boat ride. No boat because of the tides AND no luggage delivered. Had we not actively searched for our luggage, we would have likely never received it!... More

Let me start by saying that overall the resort is both scenic and value for money. This resort is nestled in its own cove with spectacular scenery with the lime stone cliffs as a backdrop and beautiful beach and ocean views , a great place to relax and unwind with a few drinks at the Beach bar with good value...

Just returned from a 9 night stay at the Grand Centara and have to say the resort is first class, beautiful location, it reminded me of Fantasy Island on first sight as we arrived on the boat. The floating jetty was a bit daunting at first but you soon get used to it and it becomes quite fun to use.... More

We escaped our awful accommodation on Railay Beach over Easter and made last minute booking at this oasis. Room - spacious, comfortable, high floor so awesome views, loved the verandahs with ceiling fans, big bathroom with power shower & hot water. Built on side of mountain so buggy is an option to get you to your room. Breakfast - restaurant,... More

Arrived after spending 2 days in Bangkok (Never again). We were initially shown to our room but the view sea was obstructed by the trees. We therefore requested a room change and without hassle were given a second room which was just as fantastic as the first but this time with unobstructed views. The staff are so polite and welcoming.... More

It is hard to write a review about this beautiful resort. My son and I stayed for three nights in August 2013, to visit some friends who were staying there. The location is undeniably beautiful, and the accommodation is of a very high standard. We had a room near the top with a stunning view over the resort. The swimming... More
