Map & Attractions

Centara Villas Phuket is located on the west coast of Phuket, on hills from which panoramic views of the majestic sweep of northern Karon Bay and the Andaman Sea can be had. Although known for its quiet setting, the hotel is just a few minutes’ drive from the shopping and nightlife of Patong (the well-known entertainment area of Phuket) and we offer a scheduled shuttle service to Karon and Patong, making it easy for you to shop and enjoy lazy beachfront days. You can also make the 20 kilometre trip to Phuket town to soak up some of the culture of the island. 

If you're keen on water sports, a short walk down the coastal pathway will take you and any adventuresome companions to our sister-hotel Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket, where you'll find a range of activities awaits you. Our team and tour information desk will also be happy to arrange additional activities for guests of all ages, including island hopping boat trips, bungee jumping and elephant riding.  

Phuket International Airport is a one-hour drive away.

Tourist Attractions

Karon Beach

Karon Beach

A few minutes walk from the resort, Karon Beach is a wide, fine stretch of sand that stretches over four kilometres. More chilled-out than Patong Beach and quieter, Karon Beach offers plenty of space for beach games along with a variety of water sports. There are also longtail boats for hire. 

Phuket Town

Shopping at Phuket Town and Central Festival

The soul of Phuket is here in the Old Town, for the island has a long and colourful history. Reached within 30 minutes by road, Phuket Town appeals to holidaymakers with its host of colourful shophouses designed in a Sino-Portuguese style and nowadays house arty coffee shops and restaurants.  Discover the town's network of narrow alleyways complete with Chinese Taoist shrines, as well as a host of opportunities to buy artworks and curios along with clothing and accessories. Phuket Town is also known for its bubbling blend of music, art and food. Central Festival Phuket is a more contemporary addition to Phuket’s shopping scene. Located near Phuket Town, and a 20-drive from the resort, Central Festival Phuket truly is a one-stop destination, offering you a large selection of retail outlets that cannot be found elsewhere on the island.

Koh Phi Phi

With long stretches of powdery white sand spilling into crystal clear waters, towering limestone cliffs and jungle-clad interiors, the six islands that make up Koh Phi Phi have everything one would expect of a tropical paradise. Phi Phi Ley, home to popular Maya Bay, Bamboo Island, Yung Island, Bida Nok, and Bida Nai are unspoiled islands protected by National Park status and surrounded by warm waters teeming with exotic marine life, making them popular options for snorkelling and diving day trips from Phuket.


With a choice of dive sites considered as being amongst the world’s most fascinating, the Andaman Sea is a tropical paradise for diving enthusiasts. Clear waters, dramatic limestone formations dominating the horizon, and splendid corals are the key reasons for the region’s popularity with divers. To the east side of the island lie Shark Point, Anemone Reef, the King Cruiser shipwreck and the Phi Phi Islands, all of which are suitable for one-day dive trips. The paradise islands of Koh Racha Yai and Koh Racha Noi, off the southern tip of Phuket, are made for thrilling drift dives with great visibility, while the Hin Daeng offshore pinnacle has vertical drop-offs of 60 metres and more. Diverse marine life, including whale sharks and leopard sharks as well as colourful living corals are highlights of any Andaman Sea diving experience.


With six regionally renowned golf courses, Phuket is a popular destination to tee off in style. On the northern side of the island, set on 730 acres of land in a secluded valley that overlooks Phuket’s hinterlands, the Blue Canyon Country Club is an award-winning golfing destination. The addition of The Lakes Course in 1999 presents water hazards on 17 out of 18 holes while the finishing hole reputedly is one of the best in the region. The Kathu area, a half-a-hour drive away from the resort, presents a concentration of three high-class golf courses, namely the Red Mountain Golf Club, the Loch Palm Golf Club and Phuket Country Club, the latter being the island’s very first golf course.

Phuket's Big Buddha

One of the island’s most revered landmarks and must-visit destinations, Phuket’s Big Buddha sits atop Nakkerd Hill, approximately 30 minutes from the resort, between Chalong and Kata. The 45-metre high image can be seen from afar, while Nakkerd Hill offers sweeping vistas over Phuket Town, Kata and Karon beaches, and Chalong Bay.


More than a shopping destination, Patong-based Jungceylon consists of four expansive zones, each offering a distinctive shopping and entertainment experience. The Sino Phuket zone is designed to evoke the Sino-Portuguese architectural style that characterises Phuket Town, with colourful shophouses serving a choice of cuisines and with plenty of space to sit back and relax. Silang Boulevard is for shopping, dining and wellness; and Phuket Square is all about fun and entertainment options with a cinema, bowling, karaoke, and children’s amusement park. There is also a microbrewery. Jungceylon is reached within 15 minutes from the resort.
