Excellent Value Low Season”

Very friendly staff. Three pools allows you to escape the playful kids. Shuttle to Kata Beach.
No reading light in guest room. Internet can be slow at times but that is a reflection of internet service provider not hotel.

Good location in Kata, with easy walk to restaurants and shops. Originally booked 3 nights and ended up staying 6 due to fantastic internet rate thru Agoda. Four star hotel amenities, very clean and well maintained hotel. Staff are very friendly and most speak english well and seem to enjoy chatting with guests. Internet rates seem high at first but if you buy a 24 hr plan it is valid for 2 weeks so it is really reasonable over the time period. Hotel offers more TV channels than other hotels. Spa is fantastic and compared to other hotel spas in Kata, Cenvaree prices are less expensive and you are assured of a certified therapist in a very clean environment. Daily breakfast offers a great variety of items including made to order eggs/omelets. Centara Kata has three pools, one which is ideal for kids. If you want less noise, choose the pool near the spa and enjoy spa music and tranquil water fountains while you are swimming and suntanning. This is a very popular resort for families and european tour groups and I can imagine it is very busy during high season. A note to parents. If bringing a stroller, be advised there are no lifts on the property so you should book a ground floor room otherwise you will be carrying the stroller up/down stairs.

Absolutely wowed by Centara Kata”

Family friendly Great breakfast Practical room design
10 minutes walk to the beach

We found Centara Kata to be an excellent, well-maintained 4-star. From the room design to the facilities the hotel scores high on being family friendly. There was a little basin in the room next to the minibar which was indispensable for a family with two young kids. A row of pull-out clothes racks in the wardrobe allowed us to unpack and get organized in a jiffy upon arrival. Staff were friendly and keen. The Kids Club kept our 5-year old happy with the many activities, and so did the many different pools. The hotel's restaurant was good and not overpriced. Breakfast was a delight, the best so far for any 4-star I've been to. They had at least 3 vegetarian options for breakfast - which I later came to know was due to the Phuket Vegetarian Festival that week, but they do usually have some even otherwise I checked.

Nice place”

Great pool area. Good restaurant. Excellent service. Helpful staff.
It is a long walk to Kata beach if you have kids but transportation is available.

Centara Kata was a great hotel experience for us as a family. We live in North Thailand but we were looking for a nice get-away to a beach in the south. The Centara was nicely located and we had a great time. While we were there the weather and waved made it impossible for us to really enjoy Kata beach. Fortunately the pool and restaurant setting of Centara Kata still made it feel like a good vacation. The hotel was great for kids as it has a well kept play room and the pool has a slide and shallow areas for fun. The Spa was also a nice experience to take some time to relax at the hotel. The restaurant offers a variety on the menu but is more expensive than eating out of the confines of the hotel. If staying a bit longer I recommend using the laundry services out side the hotel on the facing street. It will save you a lot of money and the places we used all did a good job. Overall, a great family holiday location.

Impressive Centara ”

The driver who send us there told us Centara is one of the biggest hotel brand in Phuket. Indeed, it has a number of hotels around the famous beaches. It also has a shuttle bus to kata beach and central Phuket. We are very impressed. The service, room service and the reception service are all good. Three pools located in different areas of the hotel, I guess every room could have a pool view. It’s nice! One big thing to praise is that they are very keen on going green. They provide a beverage coupon after you decide to have a green day, which means do not change the towels in your room. It’s doing great effort to save the earth! Facilities are new and tidy, very much recommended. But sometimes you’ll see groups of mainland tour staying in the hotel.

Came here for my birthday trip alone. Not much ppls cause of low season, but I don't think it will be crowded even the hotel is full. Stayed in Centara hotels for few times and their services are always over my expectation. Every staffs in the hotel has a smiley face and say hello to their guest (yes, every!) Hotel located in the center of Kata area, I can walk to the beach within 10 minutes. (They also provide one-way shuttle to the beach, but I prefer walking) Shops, food stalls, convenient stores, bars and restaurants are near-by in walkable distance. Also you can try their room service or restaurants in the hotel if you're too tired after enjoying the pool, they provide different cuisines and delicious. Rooms are clean and no mosquito even I opened the balcony doors (I stayed in 3rd floor), the main pool is suitable for child with a water slide and a mini-bar besides it. Choose the pool side room if available.

Great value for money!”

The room is clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and willing to help. Welcome drinks were a pleasant surprise!
It was very hard to find the hotel as there was no clear signs around the area to give the direction.

I'll definitely stay at Centara Kata again if I have a chance to revisit Phuket. Even though the hotel does not have private beach, but it's still in walking distance. The hotel is a great place for families seeking quiet getaway, and the price is not too high, especially in the low season. The staff at the front lobby greeted us with welcoming smile and she was very helpful. Overall, staying at this hotel was a good experience.

Fantastic Hotel!”

Location, beautiful hotel, amazing swimming pools, great activities for kids like water polo, water volley ball etc. Super cheap meals for kids. Excellant meals - including buffet breakfast.
Expensive internet. Expensive mini bar.

I had a fabulous holiday at the Centara. I was joined by my 7 year old son who also had a great time. The hotel is furnished very well and has beautiful decour. Kids are occpied with various activities and so parents can relax. Accross the road from the hotel are 3 massage and beauty shops. Massages start from 200 Baht for a hour! Amazing prices. The shops also offer laundry service for 40 Baht a Kilo. Do not use hotel facilities as they are too over priced. There is also a 7-11 across the road, so it is very cheap to stock up on drinks and snkcks without using mini bar. This hotel is also conviently close to Dino Golf which kids love. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and furnished well. Dinner at the Seasons restaurant is also very well pried. Kids meals are 100 Baht with a big selection.

Great resort, good value for money for family.”

Best value for money for family with children.

with agoda special promotion for low season (supposed to be rainy season but it rain once about 15 mins for the whole week that we were there! :) It's great value for what we've paid and we'll happily pay more from what we get from this resort. The location is not that great if you're after party and night life as it cost ฿400 to get to Patong and the same amout to get back. But great for family with kids. You could spend days without leaving the resort (apart from going to beach and restaurant nearby)as it got everything you needs. The swimming pools are all great and they got 3 pools for you to choose. Their kids club is good and the staff are very friendly. There are plenty of good restaurants and massage places just outside the hotel. The beah is nearby and great for morning jogging. If you want a bit more action, Kata main street is just 10 mins walk with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping places, a bit like mini Patong with more relaxing feel. Note that if you're family with children, it's better to get thier standard rooms with extra bed than pay for the family rooms as standard rooms building is next to the pool with big water slide whice is kids favorite and got underwater sunbed where you could sit all day. Their breakfast are very good too. Also the staff accidently put our bag of used cloths in the bin so the management agreed to pay us back half the value of the cloths and waived all the bills for our entire stay. I was very impressed with thier action.

June school holidays getaway”

Breakfast, pools, location

The Centara is a very nice hotel. Although I did read some not so good reviews prior to booking, most were good and I tend to concur. There are 3 pools including a pool for grown ups situated close to the spa. My girls enjoyed swimming in the Emerald pool which has a water slide and pool bar, as well as the Waves pool which was outside our room. My wife wrote to them requesting a room as close to a pool which they were happy to arrange. While we were there - June 10-13th - the lobby was closed for renovations, so we had to check in at the Waves lounge next to the pool which was quite nice really. We had an issue with the air-con leaking on our next to last night which they immediately rectified and promised us a different room if they couldn't fix the problem. Generally, the staff were very helpful and friendly and English was easily understood. The room itself was well appointed and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel for the place, service and staff attitude. As for the location beware that all the shops outside the hotel are a bit pricey. Better to go out turn right then left at the junction and walk 10-15 mins toward Kata beach where you will find better shopping and eating outlets. All in all, a good place for a 4 day 3 night school holiday break.

Great place for a family vacation”

Swimming pool, central to everything in Kata Beach, Nice grounds

My wife, 5 year old daughter, and I stayed at Centara for a week. Overall it was a great stay and perfect for a family with kids (with one caveat – see below). They have 3 pools – a huge pool with a slide that my daughter loved (she went up and down the slide over and over for days), a nice big pool by our room that was great for doing laps in the morning. There was also a small quiet pool where no kids were allowed. The breakfast was very good and had lots of choice. The hotel is located right in the center of all of the Kata Beach shops, restaurants and massage places – just walk down the driveway of the hotel and you are right in the middle of everything the area has to offer (and can pick up a tuk tuk or taxi to anyplace else you want to go). The beach is a 10 to 15 minute walk down the street and they have a one-way shuttle in the morning. It is actually only a couple hundred meters in a direct line from the hotel to the beach, but you have to walk right or left down the street to one of the alleys that connect the back road to reach it. It is pretty much true of any of the hotels nearby. Two complaints I have are the smoking and lack of free wifi. Most of the guests are Russian or European and smoked, and smoked and smoked. The rooms themselves are smoke-free, so this means that everyone goes out to their balconies or sits by the pool and is constantly smoking. It seemed that no matter where we sat at the pool, we were surrounded by about 15 smokers that chain-smoked all day. I would suggest that the hotel limit smoking to certain areas and especially not allow it around the kid’s pool. As for wifi – it is not free but if you buy a drink at the pool bar you get one hour for free. More drinks equal more hours so in the end it wasn’t a problem! Other than that – a good place to stay.

A very nice stay”

The hotel is lovely we stayed in the adult area only which was quiet the only downside was the pool in that area is exposed to full sun all day and it was quite warm not refreshing at all but there are two other pools to choose from the staff where very accommodating I asked to move rooms it was done efficiently without a problem.the breakfast where fresh and tasty with a reasonable choice. Kata beach is an easy 10 min walk the beach is beautiful and very clean some fabulous restaurants up the end I would definitely come back thanks Centara Kata

Excellently serviced and friendly hotel ”

Staff, pools, proximity to beach

We had a wonderful 5 days at this resort, the staff where incredibly friendly and always eager to help. The hotel is very close to the beach and the brilliant Kata- Karon area. Food was to a good standard and breakfast had enough variety to keep us all happy (including our 1 tear old). The pools are very good and although the hotel did not seem to be 'family' specific, it certainly made our kids feel welcome. Only downside is no free wifi, however this was standard across all but 2 of the 6 hotels we stayed in on our trip

Fantastic staff!”

We really enjoyed our stay at Centara Kata, and recommend it for families, and if you like a quiet and friendly atmosphere. Best hotel ever, our children said.
