Stayed here for 4 nights beginning of October. The 6th time to Karon, the first time to Centara Villas.
A bit mixed feelings about this resort, for us it has it’s pro and con, the main con being that the resort is too isolated (and yes, we did our research in advance but still it took us by surprise).
Nice room, stunning view overlooking the sea and Karon Beach (we stayed in 119). The resort is built on a cliff (we knew that beforehand so that was not a problem) and offers a shuttle minivan if you do not want to walk the steps – however, some rooms (like ours) cannot be reached so you do have to climb some stairs.
Nice pool area, but could do with some more sun screens.
Breakfast was good, plenty of choice. We had lunch at the Bay View restaurant every day, Thai and Western, this was very nice (excellent beef burger btw). We dined 2 times at the Cliff Restaurant (again, stunning views), 1 time it was excellent (they serve a mean Massuman Curry) and 1 time it was terrible (worst pizza ever, microwave-kind). The cocktails are very good (we tried several).
The staff (at the reception, bar, restaurant, pool) is very friendly and helpful.
All and all, we had a lovely stay and good value for money (we paid 50 euro/night) but our favorite resort is at the other end of Karon where everything is within walking distance.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in lush tropical greenery and overlooking Karon Beach and the Andaman Sea, the four-star Centara Villas Phuket is a romantic hideaway located steps away from the sweeping expanse of Phuket’s Karon Beach. Each romantic, private villa, nestled within its own screen of green, directly faces the sea from a dramatic inclined perch, ensuring that views are endless and the quiet all-pervading. The minimum villa size is a generous 46 square metres and some come with the option of a plunge pool or a Jacuzzi. The large two-tiered swimming pool, with its fabulous ocean views and shady spots, is the epicentre of relaxation. For another form of relaxation, Spa Cenvaree is a refuge for the senses offering a choice of therapeutic treatments including traditional Ayurvedic methods and Thai foot and body massages. The resort also offers hands-on Thai cooking classes, and two restaurants and a bar that boast sublime ocean views. For those who wish to venture out of its oasis of serenity and tranquillity, the tour information desk will be delighted to arrange activities such as island-hopping, bungee jumping, and family treks. For a change of pace, a complimentary scheduled shuttle service connects the resort with the fabled nightspots of Patong and Karon. Centara Villas Phuket is just one hour's drive away from Phuket International Airport. ... more less
