Centara Grand Beach Resort

A modern resort set in a secluded cove edged by emerald-cloaked cliffs.

Hidden away in a cove surrounded by tropical forest, a stay at the Centara Grand Beach Resort will leave you feeling like you have entered a different world. Arriving by boat is an adventure in itself and there is plenty to do during a stay here. For those wishing to switch off completely, take a book and occupy a sunbed on the white sands of Pai Plong Bay before cooling off in the sea or the swimming pool. Children have their own pool and kids’ club to keep them entertained while you sink into the Jacuzzi or unwind with a treatment at the superb SPA Cenvaree. For those seeking more extreme holiday thrills, there are watersports, a PADI dive centre, fantastic snorkelling opportunities and a well-equipped fitness centre.

There’s a great variety of dining options here; On The Rocks is right on the beach and offers a casual ambience while Hagi Restaurant is small and intimate, serving up spectacular Japanese cuisine. For international and Asian dishes, choose the Lotus Court Restaurant. If you’re looking for an authentic Thai meal featuring tasty seafood, the Suan Bua Restaurant is a must.

Deluxe rooms all have a balcony and you can upgrade your garden view for one of the sea. For a truly decadent stay, opt for a Spa Deluxe Oceanfacing Room, which not only have their own Jacuzzi but SPA Cenvaree amenities too. If you enjoy the luxury of your own private pool, we recommend the One Bedroom Oceanfacing Pool Villas. There are also a selection of Club rooms that offer additional benefits.



Escapes for total relaxation, with pampering treatments from some of the best therapists, personalised wellness programmes and energising activities.
