We returned last week from 8 nights at the Centara Grand Beach Resort. The hotel is in an amazing location overlooking its own stunning private beach, which is only accessible by boat.

The hotel has a private beach with waters that are warm, shallow in for about a kilometer and absolutely gorgeous. It is slightly cut off from Ao Nang since you need to take one of the periodic shuttles or climb the Monkey Trail which is made with shaky wooden boards and can be an issue if you're afraid of heights....
