“Luxorious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

We didn't expect much, so we were very surprised, when we arrived to Centara.
The staff was really nice and they really did their best so that the guests would enjoy their visit.
Breakfast was diverse, though in two weeks it kinda started to be the same.
Rooms were comfortable and cozy. And cleaned everyday. Every now and then we got fresh fruits in our room - a little bit extra-something :)
The pools and restaurants were great - something for everyone.
I'd totally recommend this hotel for anyone. Thanks!

My partner and i had our honeymoon here. Excellent facility with different types of rooms for every budget. 3 swimming pools. The resort is well positioned, a couple of minutes to the beack and some of the best Thai food we've eaten. Most days the resort held a theme, whether it be a cultural show, a sea food fest etc. The staff so friendly and willing to point you in the right direction. Can also hire car from the resort to take you anywhere on the island (at a cost). Laundremat right across the road. Happy hour at the swim up bar in the terrace pool was the best!
Congrats to the team, we'll be back! Kob khun krab :)

Room Tip: Whole facility well appointed and not that noisy, so no problem there. Ocean side is better for view...

We stayed here July last year. We have such a lovely time and were treated like royalty by the very friendly staff. When we arrived we were given two king single beds for my husband and myself and our 3 year old son. This was not sufficient so we were promptly upgraded to a better room without issue. We highly recommend this great resort!!!!

We had an awesome stay in August/Sept 2012 - it was amazing, on the edge of quiet season. The staff were very friendly, and we requested a ground floor room within walking distance of the pool, and we got it! The pool was great fun, and it was nice to see everyone having a great time! We'd definitely go back in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: If you have a family request to be by the main pool with the slide, if you don't like that, choo...

We stayed in early December in a Terraces Room. We had an end room with a large picture window at one side and a balcony. It was our anniversary (and we had told them and taken our wedding certificate) but didn't get any special treats like we did in other hotels during our trip (fruit, chocolates, cake, towel animals!). The room was pleasant and clean, with a good sized bathroom with walk in shower (no bath). Our toilet had a leak which we reported but it was not fixed during our stay. There's a bit of noise in the room at night from the bars around the hotel.

The grounds are lovely. The terrace pool had some work going on which was a bit noisy, so we just moved to another pool area. The bar was nice, and sold a good margherita. The happy hours were confusing - different rules in different areas, a consistent approach would help. You could get buy one get one free on a can of beer, but not on a bucket of beer - I couldn't see the difference.

Breakfast was good - again no fresh fruit juice which is disappointing.

There are lots of Russians and Scandinavians using the hotel.

Sawasdee SheilasWheels,
Thanks for staying at Centara Karon Resort. Im pleased you provided your feedback and also it was nice to read you enjoyed your anniversary in a variety of places. We do offer a gesture for a wedding anniversary however usually on the day of the anniversary if you are staying with us at the time. Im delighted you enjoyed the grounds. Happy hour is a fairly simple concept its 2 for 1, you are welcome to use baht bonanza to make it cheaper.
