Centara Villas Phuket was a great value pick. Fits the 4* bill. Had a Pool Villa, great private villa (Not all Pool Villas are completely private, luckily ours was). Although I thought that they could have covered some more open space and made the Bedroom a little more spacious but then we were a family with 2 young children, a couple could easily suffice.
Great sea view from the room, bathroom was gorgeous with a beautiful circular tub. Pool was great.
Earlier I had Holiday Inn, Patong in mind but the Pool Villa and great price sold me. All was good but let me tell you that this being my first time in Phuket, I realized that Patong was the place to be , the place with the beach, shops, pubs, nightlife malls & people. Although Patong was hardly 10 mins from the hotel and they had a Free Shuttle service twice a day, the return tuk-tuks cost over 300 Bhat,, fixed rate in Patong. So twice daily up and down for several days added up. Still with the expense I would say I got a pretty good deal.
Their Taxi desk was very competitively priced and prices were comparable to the street, sometimes better. Restaurants were just about ok, lack of vegetarian options was a negative for me.
What they couldn't do to keep me 100% happy were the missing smiles. Front desk was cold, sometimes rude. They would talk among themselves in Thai when asked a question in English (couldn't understand it but tone seemed derogatory at times) , would consider this rude behaviour for a hotel of this class. Also couldn't check me early even after writing 3 mails in advance about my flight arriving early.
- 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
