And we did! This is really a gorgeous place to say. We had 9 nights here, each in his/my own villa. We had villas 308, 310 and 311. Mine was 308 and what I call a long villa. When you walk in, the end of the bed is facing you, and seems to have more room than the sideways villas, where you walk in and the bed is sideways. My 308 villa shares a balcony with 309 (twin beds), but that didn't worry me. Our rooms were near the pools. My cousin has problems with knees, back, hips, etc. We called for the hotel's tuk tuk to take us from our villas up to breakfast and back again. There are always a few steps (he was in Villa 311) and from there down to the pool, but if he can make it, so can most people, unless they are disabled. Happy hours -2 drinks for the price of 1, served at the same time - really good value. The restaurant is really good, and we had all night meals there. On the banquet nights, you can also order a la carte which is great if you're not that hungry. Lunches at the Pool Bar were very good too. Breakfasts are marvellous. Between my crispy bacon sandwiches for breakfast and 6 pina coladas a day, I gained only 3.5 kilos! While our pools are nice, it is only an 8-minute walk to Karon Beach. Even my cousin walked it easily - there and back. It is an easy walk, with about 20 steps at the beach end, but there are very strong handrails. What more can I say? We've chosen our new villas for next April. We'll be back. Oh, and I forgot to say, the staff are absolutely wonderful - first class.

- 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.
