“How do you improve PERFECTION?”
What can I say but....AMAZING, AMAZING, AND SUPER AMAZING! This resort has friendly staff, prompt to take care of any need, and nothing but smiles all day long. The location is up against the lush, green mountain on one side then the crystal clear ocean on the other. Buffets were priccccccey. We went to the thai theme night and the seafood nite...it was okay but not worth $30/pp. eg: 1 soda can $3. The only saving grace is, if you literally go the the beach there is a tent where they make delicious cheap food right on the spot for you. When you lay on the cushions at Ripples pool, the infinity pool water lines up with the ocean water. Gorgeous! And just when it gets too hot or humid, the rain comes and cools everything down. Perfect! The only drawback is the Thai cooking school. Again it was fun but way overpriced. The trip to the market is stinky...don't say you weren't warned. I can do w/out the apron and certificate with a lesser price on the class. But overall, if I had to do it over again I would have signed up anyways. Chance of a lifetime...to do a class at the most beautiful resort EVER! :)
“Centara Grand Beach Resort - recommend”
We had a very nice stay at this hotel. Rooms were lovely, buffet breakfast great, pools great, pool staff very good with kids, beachfront location was great also. One thing they could improve is the number of shuttle bus services to Karon & Patong. Checking out at 12pm whilst having an 11.30pm flight was a bit of a pain also.
“Perfect Thai-owned hotel”
HIGHLY recommended in all ways, incl. position and val;ue for money. Brandnew, great service, food, entertainment (free yoga on roof!) etc. Our only concerns were high charges for Internt usage (this should be for free in a 5 star hotel), check-in was slow, room service somewhat expensive and expensive taxis (for Thailand) connecting one with destinations only 5 minutes away (we started walking via the beach). Great for both individual travellers as well as families as these groups are seperated if needed. The Thai influence was welcome as opposed to sometimes clinical western-owned hotel chains.
Beautiful view of a quiet, clean beach meeting the hill side. Everyone at the restort was so friendly and helpful. the grounds are huge and the restaurants had fantastic food. A very kid friendly place with great pools and a big water slide..Location wise, its about 10 min drive to busy Patong where there are lots to do and eat and shop but would have liked to have more places to dine around the resort as the restaurants can be a little pricey..
My husband and I stayed at the Centara Grand in March 2013 for one week. We had the most amazing experience, from start to finish. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We had a room with an infinity plunge pool, which was fabulous. The room was big, airy, with air con and fans. The shower was great, with a plentiful supply of toiletries. The gym was great, with all the key machines, free weights etc. They provided towels, water etc. The breakfasts were delicious, with a huge range of Western and Asian choices. The restaurants on site were excellent. We attended the Surf & Turf (bbq on the beach) on the Friday night, which was good fun. La Mare, the Italian restaurant is excellent - with an Italian chef. Best pizza we've had a in a long time! The only negative was - live music in every bar. This was difficult to avoid - the Luna Bar, which overlooks the resort and the sea, beautiful setting, had music every night...
My wife and l found the whole hotel was fantastic in every aspect. Our room was beautiful, spa on the balcony was very relaxing, hotel staff were very polite and extremely well mannered. Beach being so close you sneezed and you were on it.We both luved it so much we have decided to come back next year and book one of your rooms with the pool on the balcony looks awesome. Extremely family friendly heaps of different pools to do all fun activities, we had a ball.
“Perfect Phuket Honeymoon”
Hotel was excellent. Great location right on the beach. Great food and drinks at all restaurants and bars. Friendly and attentive staff. And the room was huge, clean, superb view, roomy balcony. In my booking, I mentioned it was our honeymoon, and they made the effort by putting rose petals around, towels shaped as swans on the bed, and then after being out for the afternoon, returned to find a cake with Happy Honeymoon on the plate - nice touch. Highly recommend to anyone.
This was my second trip to the Grand centara and even though we had some issues with our rooms the staff did everything possible to make us happy. The staff are a little slow bought you have to understand thats just the Thai way they are never in a hurry.
“Wonderful!! BUT Be Sure to Bring Nickles and Dimes”
The property is fairly new, the staff is very accommodating. However, the hotel is away from town a bit so it's taxis to and from anywhere. The taxi rates are TEN times of those in Bangkok, so be prepared. The property is very quiet and peaceful with live entertainment during dinner every night (except Sunday). The pools are very nice, there is even a lazy river to relax in, plus water-slides; however, they close early, this was a negative for us. While there aren't any private beaches in Phuket (as far as we know), this property is as close as we've seen to private. A+ for the beach. All of the little things that you'd expect to be included at no cost in a place as expensive as this, by Thailand standards, cost extra. Internet connection for example. The views from the seaside rooms are amazing, but you'll need to be careful because not all views are unobstructed. There are also two friendly cats on the property, we named them Doug and Gus. You can re-name them, they didn't come to us by those names when we called.
