“Perfect for a honeymoon/ romantic break”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

We came here as part of our honeymoon trip and stayed for 3 nights.
The villa we stayed in felt lovely and secluded which we found to be just perfect for us. The room did not have a bath which we would have liked and unfortunately even on maximum temperature the shower was still not quite warm enough. Still minor things as we felt the staff were lovely, the pools were relaxing and not too busy the times we were there. We did pop over to the Centara Grand which was great too bit much busier. The food at the Cliff Restaurant was excellent with amazing views and we caught the short firework display a couple of times. The Spa at Centara Villas is amazing. I love spas and this is one of the best I have come across. I convinced my husband to have a treatment too, which we has in the same room with wonderful views. He was impressed which says a lot! We also were lucky enough to be staying when one of the cookery afternoons was being held.. brilliant fun..and we must give a special mention to Jo, the chef, he was just made the the afternoon such a joy. He was so enthusiastic and obviously so passionate about cooking! We have been inspired to try more cooking and the recipes from the book when we return home.

All in all, I would recommend Centara Villas for a romantic get away. There is a lovely atmosphere and is just perfect for relaxing!

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.

Room Tip: if you want a private pool villa ask for it specifically.

Sawasdee krub Khun Rajatgarg,

Happy New Year!!!

First of all, thank you very much for staying with us and for giving us a constructive review on TripAdvisor.

I am sorry to hear that we missed to completely win over your heart with a few simple things. The matters have been brought up to the attention of Front Office Manager to seriously look into and to improve them promptly. My very simple instruction to the team is to always be smiling, polite, friendly and helpful which are basic personalities of Thai people.

Concerning the early check-in, I have to admit that it is quite difficult for us to accommodate due to peakest period of the year. Kindly note that our check out time is 12.00 hrs and our check in time is 14.00 hrs. To guarantee early check-in before noon, I would normally recommend our guests to pre-book one night to prevent any disappointment.

Khun Rajatgarg, thank you once again for loving our pool villa, its facility and views. Certainly, we will improve and rectify every point you kindly constructed and we all look forward to welcoming you and family back to our resort in the near future. In the meantime, we wish you and family a very happy 2013!

Best wishes,
Sam & all staff

Centara Villas are absolutely beautiful! My partner and I stayed for 4 nights (not long enough!) and loved it! the staff is very helpful and go above and beyond to make your stay as nice as possible. i fainted one morning because of the heat and the staff was so helpful, delivered the breakfast to the room and kept checking during the day if everything was okay.
the view from most of the rooms is stunning as the villas are up on a hill and overlook karon beach. there's a shuttle bus service twice a day to karon but you have to make your own way back. the walk to the beach takes approx. 10-15 minutes. the breakfast buffet is great - so much food to choose from! also, they've got a really good coffee machine where you can prepare your own coffee in the morning. karon is great and i'd recommend to stay there instead of Patong. you still get all the restaurants, bars and shops but it's much more relaxed.

Very nice hotel. Friendly staff nearly always smiling at you.
Check-in was good we sat down and they gave us cold home made juice with a wet towel against the heat. The view from the lobby and the restaurant is truly amazing.
The rooms are quit nice and pretty up to date.
There are two pools with a waterfall and the view from the pool is also amazing. One can see the entire karon beach. The hotel is overall very relaxed and not many children or noise.
The only irritating part is that the hotel lies on a cliff and the walkway between the rooms,the pool and the lobby are very steap. therefore you can book a minicar that picks you up from where ever you are in the resort and it takes you whereever you like.
It is about a 7 minute walk to the beach from the hotel and walkway to the beach is through a jungle and it is not clean at all.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a jacuzzi on the terrace.

We booked a Spa Villa, but they upgraded us to a Pool Villa. The villas are really private and secluded, and you are guaranteed to be left alone! If you are honeymooning in Phuket, this is the hotel.

Pros:
- Private
- Great Views
- Rooms are amazing and well outfitted
- Food is some of the best in Phuket. You'll go out to eat once or twice, but otherwise you'll have every meal at the hotel.
- Spa is awesome
- it's not on the beach, but its a quick walk to the Centara Grand, the bet beachfront hotel, with chairs and a bigger pool. You can order stuff on the beach and it'll be charged to your room.
- Watch the fireworks over Karon every night.

Cons
- Service is terrible and really slow. If you get impatient and they're ignoring you, just go to the bar. They should fire whomever manages food and beverage.
- Don't order mixed drinks - they skimp on alcohol to the point where my wife ordered a Bloody Mary and got a glass of tomato juice
- Housekeeping may not show up until 4 or later.
- Karon is gross. But that's not their fault. Venture in once, and that's it :-)

Room Tip: Pool or spa villa. Just do it.

Sawasdee krub Khun Zvi,

Happy New Year!!!

First of all, thank you very much for staying with us and giving us a meaningful review on TripAdvisor.

I am sorry to hear that you encountered a slow service and poor cocktail. The manager concerned was already briefed for an immediate improvement and to ensure that such a shortfall will never happen again to any guests at the resort. Regarding a maid service, I already instructed all room maids to clean more than one time a day if schedule permitted.
Your kind constructive comment on the slow service and poor cocktail is truly appreciated. It was taken for immediate improvement in order to ensure our guests enjoy their dining experience with us immensely.

Thank you once again for loving our villa, food and views. Certainly, we will improve and rectify every point you kindly constructed. We all look forward to welcoming you back to our resort. In the meantime, we wish you and family a very happy 2013!

Best wishes,
Sam & all staff

Hotel is on a hill so pretty much all rooms will have the unobstructed seaview. We only have a deluxe seaview villa but that is just wat we needed. Our villa is surround by trees, and we can enjoy the seaview from the villa and from the terrace. It is a very green, quiet and private place, and we did not see any other guests during our stay nearby except in the reception, swimming pool and restaurant.

Ok, the Amenties are basic, and the breakfast can be better, but for the price we paid, we are happy that we have stayed in this hotel.

Please note though, you will need to spend on taxi to bring you to town and back which can be quite costly.

Room Tip: to secure a good seaview, ask for a villa that has a terrace at its front, not side.
