What an amazing stay!!!! As this was our first ever stay overseas, what enchanting places away from home!!!!!! We were pleasantly greeted by front end staff, but the English language
was considerable problem which we slowly overcame! The resort was faultless, the room were spacious and clean, breakfast was amazing, your head chef Louis does an amazing spread from a hearty breakfast to dinner. The resort has everything to offer from the gym to spacious pools, jacuzzi and three well stocked bars to the in house day spa to the bakery. All staff at the resort are amazing with their very kind nature can't do enough for you!! We will defiantly be coming back .

Room Tip: Any room looking out towards the sea .

Dear Coleman M,

…and what an amazing review! We are so happy that you chose Thailand (and Centara) as your first overseas holiday destinations. We’re happier still that both delivered a fantastic experience for you.

Good on you for checking out all the facilities and options. Thank you especially for the compliment on Chef Luis’s breakfast. He does a great job for us and he works even harder when he gets a pat on the back.

Please make good on your pledge and come back to see us again soon.

All the Best,

Joe

We loved this place! We were on our honeymoon as well as it being our first time in a 5 star resort and it lived up to all expectations and beyond. They even honeymooned up the room for us before we arrived which was great. The staff were always friendly, caring and helpful. The pool was incredible. Breakfast was superb. WIFI was fast. Our room was great except for the bathroom being pretty dated, the door especially. I highly recommend doing the thai cooking class and going to the thai street market dinner at the hotels Spice Restaurant. Amazing! So many other awesome restaurants/bars right on the resorts doorstep or within walking distance. Perfect location for shopping too. All in all this is an amazing resort and we would never stay anywhere else when returning to Samui!

Dear MickMaher83,

First of all –congratulations! We’re so pleased that you chose us for your Honeymoon and that it was a wonderful holiday. After all the planning and preparation involved with a wedding you two deserved a relaxing vacation!

Furthermore, we believe that being bathed in the warm glow of love influenced some of your observations, but we’ll take the compliments just the same!

We’re thrilled you took part in the Thai Cooking Class. You should be able to find everything you need to make authentic Thai dishes there in Newcastle.

You also mentioned shopping. You probably noticed the mysterious fencing stretching from one end of the beach to the other. That’s the location for Central Festival shopping center due for a Grand Opening at the end of March 2014. We think it will be a fine addition to what’s already offered in Chaweng.

We hope you make good on your promise to return and we’d love to have you come back for your anniversary. See you next year?

All the best,

Joe Clasby

Went with family and relatives in dec 2014 and stay in centra, our ages range from a 1 years plus baby to a grandfather of 70 years old.

You can basically stay in the hotel without the need to venture out

There is a playroom for the baby which is great as we spent many hours there keeping the baby engaged, the rest of the family members either went gym, swimming, lazed by the seaside, jet ski or sleep in the hotel room

Room and Toilet are of a good decent size. The decor is Thai style and is cosy and very comfortable .

We Stay on the ground floor, the baby got badly bitten by the mosquitoes though. Do get insect repellent if you going stay there

Service standard is good,the breakfast spread is huge and we had great time feasting on the breakfast every morning.

Overall a good and relaxing stay especially for family

Dear SailorTraveller,

Thank you for sharing your review. We loved hearing that the entire family had a relaxing (and fun) holiday.

We’re sorry to learn that your baby was bitten by mosquitoes and you’re quite right; repellant is always a good idea.

Thank you for the positive comment on breakfast. It truly is the most important meal of the day. We’re glad that you made the most of it here.

We hope that you’ll make the short trip up from Singapore to visit us again soon.

Kind regards,

We have recently spent a week at the place we love best in Koh Samui having stayed here six times previously. The reasons why we return haven't changed- the amazing staff, the beautiful grounds and the best spot to lounge about on the beautiful Chaweng beach.
The club level is extremely good value and is recommended.
The breakfast buffet is extensive and the themed dinners during the evening have a wide variety of dishes usually with a band thrown in.
In the end however it comes down to the staff who are so friendly and incredibly professional.
We have stayed at the 4 seasons in Koh Samui a couple of times ( which is amazing) and considered it for this trip. However the special magic of the Centara Grand lured us back and we are very glad it did,

We spent a week in January at the Centara Grand. The beautifully kept spacious gardens were a delight and the views from our room over the gardens to the beach were lovely.

Our room had everything we needed and housekeeping was great.

We also enjoyed the resident entertainment trio.

A special mention to Yat in the main restaurant who assisted my husband, who is veggie, in choosing one of the best meals we had in Samui.

The hotel is very convenient to the shops, bars, restaurants etc and you can also walk round the lake.

Whilst we enjoyed our break here I think it is better suited to families and people who like to get out and experience the buzz and then return to the oasis of calm!

We are just back from a Samui break, part of which was spent at the centara grand. The hotel is set in very nice grounds, with plenty of safe space for kids to run around, which was perfect for us. The beach is fantastic too. The hotel has good access to it.

Rooms were less than perfect considering the rate being charged, quite poor considering the cost. The on site Thai resident is very good, but buffet breakfast was quite poor, with hot breakfast being often very cold.

Hotel wifi, was best sitting in the children's playground outside the gym, otherwise non existent. Overall for the rate charged, I don't think I will be back considering other options on Samui.

Dear Randombtl,

Thank you for sharing your review.

It’s so nice to hear that your kids had a good run around. We think between the vast lawns, gardens and playground that there is plenty of space for our littlest guests to run to their hearts content.

We thank you also for your other observations.

We want readers of Trip Advisor to know that in addition to the WiFi available at the gym we also have other stations set up throughout the resort with equivalent strength of signal.

We do hope that after making a comparison of other options on Samui that you will choose to return.

Sincerely,
