Disappointed”

Older resort that could use some freshen up. Sewer Cock Roach ran across the villa floor #314. Air-conditioning drains onto the patio/balcony causing wet spot in the ground. No toothbrush provided or bonus toiletries provided. Pizza in the restaurant was a disappointment. Not for the disabled or elders because so many stairs. Definitely not 4 star.

When we arrived we were met by two interns, Megan and Michelle. They were excellent and informed me of all the amenities available to make our stay comfortable. The location is a bit remote but if you have a car then no problem. There are lots of steps to climb to and from the pool and beach which was not a problem but something to consider if you have a disability. On the whole it was a great place to stay with excellent facilities and staff. I will definitely return.

Amazing Samui vacation”

The Centara has the most beautiful and clean beach and it is easy to dip into the ocean all day long. Safe for small children too. Great food, and a really nice breakfast. Each visitor has their own spacious bungalow with a ac, fan and an outdoor sitting area. Close to mopeds, restaurants and massage. Shuttles to Chewang and Lamai. E pools. We bought 10,000 baht and got 13,000 to spend. We had a magical romantic dinner on the beach. Events nightly. We will definitely come again! Great staff. It felt like home.

Beautiful Hotel”

The hotel is so beautiful where there are small villas with a private beach. Cleanliness is over the top. They also provide us with insect repellent which is so thoughtful because one our first night staying in the villa, there was a mosquito inside our room. The beautiful beach and the staff were very helpful. 5 star service from the staff. the location is quite far from Lamai or Chaweng, but worry not, the hotel provides shuttle to Lamai and Chaweng. Better stock up snacks while you are in Chaweng because there is no mini mart nearby the hotel. There is an atm machine in front of the hotel.

We will take you there, wait for 10 minutes and drive back to the hotel, so in case you need something urgently, you can get it immediately. Best regards, Karin Jongman General Manager

A well hidden hotel away from the noise ”

Designed so that you don't notice how big it is. Second was beautiful view and third was helpful staff

Food is good for Samui hotel food. But disappointed that there were no fresh local fish. One of the pools was being renovated. The staff level if English generally poor, even for Thailand. The drinks are reasonably priced. It is very isolated. You really do need wheels if you need to go around or eat anywhere outside of the hotel. If you have difficulty in walking or climbing, this would be a very bad hotel. Hundreds of steps from reception to pool and beach.

It did feel slightly awkward being a solo traveller. There seemed always to be an assumption that I should have a partner. In Europe women of all ages travel alone and it is slightly uncomfortable to feel I have to keep explaining that there is just one of me and I don’t want 2 coffees or two towels etc.

Beautiful place and people but you don't like steps make sure that you're room is near the pool/beach/restaurant. Slightly isolated and with a handful of nice local eatery's just down the road. If you need to use taxi's instead of the shuttle service you pay a lot as taxi meters don't get use in Samui.

Simply Brilliant!!!!!”

Centara Villas Samui is located at the more quiet part of the Island and that is part of the beauty. The entire landscape is well done right from the lobby up to the restaurants and bar by the beach. The property itself is quite exclusive and definitely worth every penny if you are looking for some peace and quiet. We stayed as a couple in the Private Pool Villa and this was really exclusive and independent, perfect for those newly weds. If you are not the kind who likes to be confined to a seperate villa all day then there are 3 large swimming pools in the property for you to leisure in. The beach front is as private and there are no disturbances from outsiders. The Spa Cenavaree is brilliant in the services offered, definitely a must visit if you plan to stay here. The food is good and has mix of European and local Thai cuisine. The Bar serves from Brilliant cocktails if you are in the mood for it (Make sure to try the Coco Loco :) ). The staff is very welcoming and are at your service at all times to ensure your needs are taken care off. To summarise, you will not be disappointed during your stay here. Two thumbs up!!!!!

We booked the standard room 104 only which is very nice, clean and gives us a very good boutique atmosphere. Shower water was not hot at all but this issue got fixed within no time after telling the reception. Cleaning staff girl amazingly friendly and did one of the best jobs I ve ever seen in a hotel (I stay for business usually between 2-10 nights a month in 4-5* hotels!). It was not only clean, it was perfectly clean and everything sorted and brought in order!! The three pools are very nice and clean as well! The beach is sooo beautiful and kept in a very clean condition as well. Really I cannot understand people rating it bad. Staff all over the hotel incredibly friendly with an almost perfect hospitality! Food in the restaurant is good. Cocktails could be more sophisticated... Free Breakfast in the morning is delicious and has got western standard. Orange juice in some comments rated before is good although it's not fresh made in front of you. we ll come back again !

quite, separate villas, staff

Pros: the staff speaks good English, is eager to help and solve issues. Villas are nice and separated enough to have your own space and relax. Breakfast choice is good and they serve real juices, not drinks. You really feel that you are on holidays. Service and facilities are real 4 stars. Cons: It's far from everything. Moving around the hotel is like going through a maze with too many stairs, they could clean the junk from the beach (broken glass, bottles, syringe with needle). High motorbike rental (300B) and car rental rates (1800B).

Restaurant Staff, Location, Spa Room

My husband and I frequently stay at Centara. Our flight was early, and therefore arrived early (10:00), we were asked to wait until 11:00 to check in. No problem, our fault. However, when we arrived to the room, it was not the room we booked. I asked the nice lady at the desk if I was mistaken, but I thought that the "Spa Room" had a double sink, and en-suite bathtub. (I am not comfortable with bathing out on the deck...good for the kid to splash in, but not very modest bathing for an adult....this is why we booked this room). She told me that "all spa rooms are like this". After some polite talking, she then informed me that there are some 'special' rooms. They changed our room, but advised us that we would have to wait until 5:00. However, we could use the current room to let my 1 year old sleep, 'but do not mess up the room.' This was an odd situation. We have never encountered anything like this at another Centara. The rest of the stay was wonderful, food was good, breakfast was fine. Generally clean and very close to the beach. Restaurant staff were loverly, and we had a great chat with them each morning. My husband and I were talking about how we could make a reservation to come back to this hotel, but to ensure that we got what was advertised. This is not a conversation that guest should need to have when considering visiting again. We are both expats living in Thailand.

Relaxing stay in Koh Samui”

Quiet location,beautiful villa,friendly staff

I recently enjoyed a short 4 night stay at Centara Villas....a late booking with Agoda rooms and at an excellent deal of 50% off for B&B in a Spa villa. I was most impressed with the size&quality of the villa-there was a huge decking area with an outdoor jacuzzi and sun loungers to make the most of the sun trapped area(the sun was on the patio from early morning to late afternoon).My villa-201-was recently renovated to a high standard. Only disadvantage was a long walk down to the beach&restaurant..but it was close to Reception&wi-fi in the Papillon bar.Breakfast choices were good and it was lovely to eat at the beachside location. If you want a quiet location far from the madding crowd this is ideal-very peaceful and private. Regular shuttle buses from the hotel at low prices meant you could travel to nearby towns like Lamai and Chaweng.Finally the staff were SO attentive&friendly-service with a smile-always!Would love to return for longer!

Can't say enough wonderful things about Centara!”

Relaxing, pool/beach access, friendly staff

Amazing! I was so pleased. I booked Centara as a cheaper alternative to the resort my friends wedding was held at. My boyfriend and I couldn't afford her villa resort. I was bummed out, but it ended up working out great. The staff was extremely friendly. We had the basic Garden Villa (room 132) and it was beautiful- and directly next to the spa! When we arrived, we were greeted with iced lemongrass tea (which became a favorite of ours). We were brought to our room, which was exactly as pictured. The resort is off the beaten path, but a short walk to Fishermans Outlet for dinner is a must! Cheap and delicious. Shuttles/taxis are easy to book through the hotel. There are a lot of stairs, but nothing unbearable.

Nice laidback getaway”

friendly staff, well-maintained facilities

As most reviewers point out, this is an older resort with lots and lots of stairs, so keep that in mind for older or less able-bodied guests. The thai food on the menu is better than the western, but they're all acceptable. The buffets are rather lacking in quality for the price. The spa is also a little expensive, and not exceptional, but acceptable. Difficult to get to town, and the lack of free resort-wide wifi is irritating in this day and age.
