Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket
Ranked #16 of 136 Hotels in Karon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2016

This hotel had a great location right on the beach at Karon Beach, and so much to do for the kids, with great staff overseeing their water and other activities.

Even though one a completely current modern hotel, a real Thai rainforest feeling amongst all the accommodation, and the rooms have been refurbished stylishly.

We had a really relaxing week here, dining in nearly all the restaurants, using the day spa nearly everyday, and definitely relaxing by the pool. My husband and sons hired surfboards a few days and went surfing out the front as well. Loved it!

Room Tip: Block 9 has direct views overlooking the beach. Anything ground floor on any block of apartments wo...

Sawasdee AnissaQldLoades,
Thanks for taking the time to provide a review from your recent stay at Centara Grand.
Im pleased the kids enjoyed their time at our waterpark and you loved the rain forest surrounds and absolute beachfront combination. Actually our resort is only 6 years old but it has been designed in a classic sino portugese design giving the impression of an older style resort directly relating to Phukets charming history.
Hope to welcome you back in the near future.
Darren

I have a month trip to Asia and this time I visited Phuket as my first destination in Asia. Phuket is very nice place for holiday. The people, the culture and Centara is good option during my first trip.

The beach is so beautiful, the food also tasty tough a bit spicy for my taste but everything is so cheap here.

I don't regret my decision to stay here and maybe one day I will come again.

Really enjoyed the villa my husband and I had however not the price per night. If you want somewhere luxurious then this was definitely fantastic. Villas were away from rest of the resort so was very quiet. If you don't mind being a little out of town then you will like this however if you like being close to restaurants then I'd suggest you stay elsewhere. Breakfast was ok but had better when stayed elsewhere.

We just returned from this resort on Wednesday. Our 2 boys got really sick with gastro so be careful(it went through the resort). Room was nice could do with a paint job though. This resort is awesome for kids, pools water slides, lazy river(although slow) were all excellent. The people are amazing, nothing was a hassle. The beach is directly in front of this resort and it was so warm(beautiful). Yes the waves are strong but you swim in between the flags, if not, then you are stupid. The restaurants could do with a few more special nights and happy hours could go longer. If they want people to eat there the prices need to come down(especially at lunch). We now know why people go to Karon to eat, it's soo cheap. One thing to know is that this resort isn't close to much, you have to walk to Karon 10-15mins, nice walk along the beach. Lot's of things to like about Centara but read the reviews about food prices and location. Patong 10-15 in a cab or tuk-tuk(fun).

Wow ,just had an amazing two weeks at the resort and i cannot highly enough recommend it.I visited for my 50th Birthday with my family and friends , we about 20 persons were looked after superbly .Great room overlooking the ocean,for 12 out of the 14 days the sun shone the ocean was calm and beautiful and warm to swim in. The Pools were great with slides and swim up bar or a separate adults pool for extra peace and quiet. The facilities ,gym , spa for massages etc,restaurants were A1,Breakfast was varied and plentiful they even provided me with some fresh mango on request. Anan and his team were professional and friendly.I was able to meet with the Chef Laurent and he organised a special dinner for my birthday for our group of 20,it was superb a great selection of Food and cocktails all served down by the beach for a dinner at sunset i will never forget,we even had a DJ .Within easy walk along the beach to Karon for other bars and restaurants ,what more could you want for one of the best holidays i have ever had.Thank you to all the team for excellent and friendly service,well done and i cant wait to return !!
