Quiet,relaxing, good food It was very good stay, very relaxing, could do with some entertainment in the evening, fire shows or music.
great location , beautiful resort. Negative: loved everything about this place
This hotel is well maintained, rooms are spacious, well equipped. A lot of charm! Beautifil sea views. Peaceful and quiet. Hidden gem.
We splurged a little and were not disappointed. The location is spectacular with the resort nestled between limestone cliffs and the ocean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the room comfortable and spacious, very clean. Would recommend it for a relaxing, romantic get-away. Pros: Understated luxury in a beautiful setting. Cons: The hotel is somewhat isolated (which can be a good thing). A short but strenuous hike over the "monkey trail" takes you to the next beach. Location: Beautiful beach location surrounded by limestone cliffs on the Andaman Sea. Easy to book day trips to near-by islands. We enjoyed sea-kayaking there.
We are seasoned travelers and absolutely LOVED this property. Although accessible only by boat, it's super easy to catch a long tail boat to get to neighboring beaches. The grounds are spectacular, the staff accommodation, the rooms wonderful and the views are breathtaking! We would stay here over and over again!
It was overall an enjoyable stay even if the rooms and furnishing are showing age and wear. We upgraded to a villa located right at the top of the lot and the exclusiveness is worth the money. The view was not much unfortunately but the little pool and bathtub make up got it. We stayed in villa 2011. Its quite a climb up but buggy service is available if needed. The Club lounge (comes with villa bookings) is very nice. Quiet and peaceful, and food is available almost all hours during the day, all included. The mattress is softer than I would prefer. Water pressure at the showers is so so. Wifi signal strength is excellent. Note if you care about any of these. Overall, if you like a nice getaway in an exclusive place, this place is worth considering.
My partner and I stayed here for 8 nights and truly enjoyed every single minute. The hotel is gorgeous ( rooms, beach, pool area, restaurants, scenery etc). I have noticed that loads of people complain about the complicated access (either a boat or monkey trail) to the resort but I actually think that makes this resort very exotic. After visiting Railay beach where thousands of people where coming and going, where the hotel guests had to sunbathe while being overlooked by all the tourists, I felt so lucky to come back to Centara and relax being able to escape the crowds. Although it is a public beach, due to complicated access no one else apart from the Centara guests actually uses it. Also, I think Centara has an awesome location. The resort is not surrounded by crowds but if you do prefer a bit of a party, Ao Nang beach is just 15 mins walk away by monkey trail and Railay beach is just 10 mins away by a boat. YOU should not be scared from Monkey trail. It is steep only at the beginning and end of the trail. It's a very short walk to Ao Nang and we used it every day, even during the night time as it is all lit up. There were a few communication issues and I do agree that sometimes it could be frustrating that staff could not understand you properly but regardless of that the effort they make to feel you happy is incredible. Every single staff was great, always polite and smiling. One of the guys even gave me his umbrella when it was raining badly. Especially I would like to say big thank you to Cici (On the rock). She always approached us making sure that everything was OK and if there was any questions, concerns etc she was there to help us. She was an amazing host and made us feel welcome. I hope one day I will be able to to come back! It was awesome!!!
Completely relaxing week at the resort in between visiting busy Bangkok and beautiful Chiang Mai
Once toured Thailand and done the culture we headed for 10 days of beaches. Centara is our first stop. Staying for only 2 nights. Our boat changed to longboat from speedboat, but that was no biggie! On arrival at the floating pier, we were greeted by a somewhat solemn lady. Who kept telling us to wait. Once in reception, the team were fantastic as were the facilities. We do think this will be our most luxurious stay over our adventure. We were also upgraded free as it was my friends 40th. I'd preordered flowers and fizz. That was on her bed waiting in our deluxe spa room with an ocean view. We booked a garden view. We also had a jacuzzi on the balcony. Needless to say, we dipped straight in there with the fizz. Absolute paradise with an amazing view and surroundings. Complete bliss. On the Rocks restaurant was nice, quick and easy, as is deep blue bar. Cocktails tasty. We did venture into Ao Nang on our second night, few communication barriers and no idea how getting back, as hotel kept telling us we must go back to pier and pre book. We walked there through the monkey trail. Which I loved. Took lots of monkey photos, then enjoyed a lovely relaxing evening in Ao Nang. No need to go to far end. Lots of bars, spas, food and stalls at this end. Lovely atmosphere too. We headed to boat hut and getting a boat back was no problem, infant they jumped at us to get on there boat! Easy. I'd recommend this hotel for a quiet relaxing get away whilst touring the fantastic country.
Excellent location. In a private cove with a large beach, surrounded by high cliffs. The cliffs are so impressive there is no vehicular access. You can only get there by boat, or by climbing along a cliffside walking trail. The scenery is exceptional. One can kayak along huge rock formations in the sea. Water is generally calm. There is a main restaurant, the Lotus Court, which has live piano music with all meals. The pianist, Robato, has a huge collection of popular pieces and really performs the pieces with dedicated aplomb, making every meal a memorable experience.
