Loved our stay!
We stayed for 8 days in a pool villa. It had the charming feel of a cape cod beach cottage, high ceilings, large window which made the room very bright, The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom quite rustic that retained a cottagy feel. Inside shower was pretty small, but we enjoyed the private outdoor shower. Our private pool area was the perfect place to hang out after a whole day at the beach. With the pool villa came special services such as a free cocktail hour at the club, which served a nice array of hors d'oeuvres from 5-7. A nice breakfast was served at the club as well as at the villa campus' poolside. Great little buffet and eggs and pancakes to order. The hotel has beautiful grounds, plenty of different pools to suit everyone. Service was superb throughout our stay. The hotel has a large campus with green lawns, cool topiary, great little restaurants and bars. It felf very separate from town, but is actually adjacent to town which is easily walked to.There were plenty of sunbeds at the pools, but the hotel doesn't supply sunbeds on the beach. This proved to not be a problem because there were private areas that provided beds and drinks and amazing thai food for a very reasonable fee. We shopped around and wisely chose to use the sunbeds at Madame bPOO's which is in the #6 slot. Madame Boo is a great cook and a warm and welcoming host and made us feel special and pampered. She and great staff made up of a married team of Phio Phio and ၿဖိဴး ၿဖိဴး were so friendly and kind and were fun to get to know. We stay in touch with them on FB. We plan to visit again next year and will definitely choose to stay in the pool villas and spend our days at the beach with wonderful Madame Boo at station 6! Highly recommend Centara Grand!
We stayed for 5 nights in a Deluxe Club Access Room . The room was lovely with a big balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens with the pools and sea in the distance . The staff were wonderful . The hotel is grand but very relaxed and comfortable . We made good use of the Club , which had an indoor air conditioned area and a lovely shady outdoor area. We had breakfast there the first couple of mornings , but preferred the larger breakfast restaurant. During the day a light lunch of soup and panini was offered , then later on afternoon tea . From 5.30 -7pm wine , beer , cocktails etc were offered with canapés / snacks ...needless to say there was rarely a spare seat ! We enjoyed the lovely gardens , the 3 pools , the beach , being located in the centre of things with a short stroll to shops , restaurants, massages, markets etc. Easy to see why this hotel gets a lot of repeat holidaymakers.
Self-isolating at home on a cold and windy Sunday, my husband and I, to cheer ourselves up, looked at our holiday photos from our recent stay. The memories flooded back; we had spent two weeks in paradise. The Centara is a fabulous place, lovely, spacious accommodation; amazing, extensive gardens; the food (especially the breakfasts!) and The Club – a delight to visit. Long sandy beaches with warm sea, The best thing of all, however, were the staff; ever friendly, helpful and always smiling. Thank you, Jan for the memories; we will be back next year!
Very good inspite of Corona
It is the most charming hotel I know, very good service, best management ever ( Mr. Weisheit ), friendly and mostly competent staff, it`s an oasis in the middle of the town, very, very beautiful gardens.
A 'Garden of Eden' - Awesome Resort - Outstanding
We found this resort 10 yrs ago & have just returned making year 11 on the bounce. It is an outstanding gem of a resort that has broken our 'travelling rule' we made of never to go back to the same place. It's service, food, accomodation & extensive grounds, makes it special, in away it becomes 'Home from Home.' It's not a 18 - 30 resort. If you seek P & Q where everyone is there to relax, this is a MUST on your tavellering list. You are made to feel your every need is catered for. See you next year god willing after this pandemic is sorted.
