Second time I've stayed here. It's idyllic - a haven for rest and relaxation. Stayed in a pool villa which gives privacy and a wonderful view over the sea and Karon Beach. Food was excellent and reasonable. Rooms clean and comfortable. cleaning staff do an excellent job daily. What really makes this place stand out however is the staff. They are amazingly friendly, and if you take time to talk to them, they will enhance your holiday experience no end. Excellent holiday

We stay at this hotel for 7 nights in middle August 2013.
Even the staff was good and the area fantastic, the smell in the room an the surrounding
area was......... !!!
We appreciate the wine and the fruits upon our arrival ( Honeymoon trip ), but that was all.
We asked several times to clean the bathroom due to stacked waters, but the next day the same
problems happened.
We believe that this hotel needs a renovation to the hydraulics .
The end of the path to the sea is very dangerous. Please be careful .

The only " light" to this hotel, is the Spa.

We stayed 7 nights and were so sad when we had to leave. The staff were so lovely...we are social people (44/47yo) and were there to enjoy ourselves not to pick faults. The views were magnificent from anywhere in the hotel. A free "new" hotel van/taxi to Patong and Karon every morning/afternoon. 250/300 Baht back to hotel from either. Yes there are stairs but free tuk-tuks run 24/7 and are heaps of fun to ride...Yes it rains and it's warm at night (your in Thailand) A/C and fans in rooms worked fine...yes there are bugs (your in Thailand)....no they don't speak perfect English with your accent (your in Thailand)...if you can't handle any of these things it's best you stay at home... The food was exceptional...something for everyone and always served with a smile... these beautiful people treated us like family and the service was excellent. Thank you Jee and your wonderful staff, we loved our stay and we are coming back in April next year.

Room Tip: Lots of stairs but free Tuk-Tuks 24/7 were heaps of fun up & down...we never climbed the stairs...

Dear Kylie Shane,

Thank you for your positive remarks about our staff and the service that you received during your last visit and the comments about the food.
Yes our location which is secluded and private lends itself to natural surroundings, which includes Mother Nature’s little critters, but as you said its part of the charm and the smiles from the staff are always free.

Yours sincerely,

Ross and the Staff

We had to change rooms four times due to insects in the room and water leakages. For a honeymoon it was hectic as everyday we would find a lizard, cockroach and spiders in the room and bath area. The service was good but they did not offer any discount to us for all the hassle caused. When we arrived they welcomed us with complimentary drinks but completely blanked us on our last day when we were leaving.

Dear Wshah,

Thank you for taking your time to let us know about the insect and water leakage you experienced during your stay with us.

We have dispatched our Engineering department to re-inspect your room and will hope that you understand that during rainy season in Thailand this is not uncommon.

Sorry about your departure being so informal, however, that particular day we had so many departures around the same time and lead little time for our staff to chat.

We do sorry that you have to change the room because of the leaking and insects but there was just only one time, for the rest of moving as you knew that you want to upgrade for 1 nights and then you change your mind to move back to your original booking all under your decision.

Sincerely yours,

Ross and the Staff

Excellent. Individual villas were "as indicated" in all the advertising material. Ocean view villa had a good view (but there is well established vegetation so don't expect the view to be un-restricted). Staff were genuinely friendly, courteous and helpful. Restaurant food was very good value and covered all taste ranges. The included breakfast was excellent. Villas are on a (steep) hill which means lots of steps. We were very happy with the steps - but If you can't cope with the climb there is a TukTuk on call. Spa manager NANG really was an outstanding ambassador for the Hotel and the quality of Massage and Spa services is very professional. Pools are excellent and provide 2 distinctly different styles of relaxing. Note that you are allowed to use the Pool complex (4 interconnected Pools and slides) in the sister resort Centara Grand at Karon Beach. This is well worth the short walk on the beach track to Karon. Only fault was the air conditioning was a bit noisy during the night. An outstanding holiday - highly recommended.

The Centara Villa's is located outside of Karon on the way to Patong. I arrived about 9a. I was delirious from the 12 hour time difference and more than 24 hours of travel. I was greeted by a cool towel and coconut milk still in the coconut. It was nice and refreshing. The Villa's are located on a hill overlooking The Andaman Sea. All of the villa's face the beautiful blue green water. So you are guaranteed a view. No looking at dumpsters and parking lots here. We had Villa 217. It is in the far west side of the property. There are lots and lots of steps. Breakfast and Dinner are served at the Cliff Restaurant on the top of the hill beside the lobby. It is a hike to get there. We would climb and climb, then rest a few minutes and look at all the beautiful greenery and flowers. Then we would climb some more. You can call for a tuk tuk to pick you up at your villa and drive you up, but then you would miss all the beautiful plants and flowers that grow all over the property. Lunch is served at the Bayview Restaurant. It is located by the pool. All of the food was amazing, and we tried a little bit of everything. The view from both restaurants are beautiful too. A lot of the hotels in Phuket are located across the street from the beaches and there are electric lines that get in the way of the view. We loved Centara Villa's and could not have made a better choice of hotels.

Room Tip: 217 has great views
