After traveling for over 24 hours to arrive in Phuket, Centara Villa is the perfect place to land. The hotel is located at the top of the hill overlooking Karon beach. Upon arriving we were welcomed with a refreshingly cold coconut drink and taken by tuk tuk to our villa. The villa was simple with small patio and well appointed bathroom. The room was clean and tidy, not that it mattered as we spent most of our time at the pool or the beach. Every morning we would enjoy the buffet breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the ocean. The buffet had a huge selection with a large variety of fruits, toasts, egg station as well as Thai and Western style breakfast options. Probably one of the best breakfast buffets we experienced during our month in Thailand. During the day we would lounge by the pool (which was empty...hardly anyone there) which was overlooking the ocean...it was fabulous. If we felt up to it, it was a very short walk (5-10 minutes) along a trail to the beach. The only slightly annoying thing was that the gate would be locked at 6pm and you would have to take a cab back to the hotel...though not that big of a deal. The staff were overall quite friendly and helpful....everyone always had a smile on their faces. We found Centara Villas to be one of the best places to relax and recover from the jet lag of long travel. We only ran into a small problem on our day of check out. We had missed the ferry to our next destination and were trying to inquire about taking a car/private taxi, when we asked the concierge we were told that all the taxis were booked and our only option was to see about spending another night and leaving in the morning. We chose to go down the tourist area by the beach and managed to find tourist agent who found us a taxi within an hour. It was a little disappointing that the hotel hadn't been able to make these arrangements for us. Overall we had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again or recommend to friends!
