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.

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.

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.

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.
Dear quistina, Thank you very much for your great review on Agoda. It is great that you have made an effort to inform future travelers about our hotel. From the review I can see that you had a pleasant stay with us, thank you for letting us know. We provide two daily complimentary trips to the Family Market on the corner. 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
Beautiful and nice experience ”
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 !
A well hidden hotel away from the noise ”
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.
Nice beach, quite, but too many steps.”
Nice hotel but quite far from airport and downtown. Helpful and attentive staffs. Nice breakfast and dinner at restaurant near to beach. Cocktails are good. Beach is nice but Chaweng beach is much better. From lobby to room, have to walk many steps downhill. Hotel provide shuttle to Chaweng beach, and other sightseeing areas.
Nice quiet resort but a bit too secluded for us and quite a few disappointments...”
We have been staying here for the past 3 nights... we are a couple in our 40,s and very seasoned travelers having stayed in many countries in many different types of accommodation... on our arrival here we had a villa booked, walked in and thought lovely... unpacked our bags and went for a drink at the bar... On our return we found our aircon did not seem to be working so alerted reception... the aircon was looked at and deemed unserviceable so we had to change rooms at 10:30 at night..( not happy ) we were taken to a different villa, smaller layout, not to our liking and not as nice, very disappointing but was to tired to argue at this point, this was pointed out the next day but no care or action taken, we have spent the next two nights not being satisfied but thought oh well we will just try enjoy our time.... in the morning we found there is NO FACILITIES to purchase basic things like milk or sundries for your room even for a cuppa in the morning.. we had dinner that night at which I ordered a rib eye steak ( this was unable to be eaten, full of fat and grissle and just inedible) the dessert however was yum so the experience was bitter sweet.. cocktails here are made weird nothing like we have tasted anywhere and the wine is terrible ( which is what I like to drink)... we also made several bookings for different things all of which all were written down in front of us but were not in their books when we arrived to attend these outings, very frustrating.. On Some good notes ... MEGAN, who is one of the management team, was lovely and tried to do all she could to make our experience better after our arrival mishap however, unfortunately she was on days off for the two days following our arrival... Thank you Megan for your efforts... The bar staff are lovely, the massage I had was AMAZING... and the location albeit secluded is lovely... would I come back ... NO.. unfortunately the cons outweigh the pros on this occasion Also this resort is on a hillside with a l

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.
Dear Adam, Thank you for having written a nice review about our resort, it is great that you have taken the time to let other travelers know how you enjoyed your stay and the recommendation you have given. Kind regards, Karin Jongman General Manager
Awesome place to be”
The resort was good and the pool room specially on the top was the best... It's little away from the pier as well as airport but would still recommend this place... Vegetarian could face little problem, however the chef are very kind and offer you the food you desire... Restaurant is on the beach and that's gr8...u can really enjoy the food viewing the green waves..
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!!!!!
My stay was very good, hotel has fabulous beach, nice pools, and poolside bar and dining - very relaxing! Is great value for money. Only complaint is hotels ability to book a taxi on time ...always 30 minutes late.
Quite place to relax”
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).
Amazing place to relax ”
This is the perfect hotel for relaxing. It is secluded but the hotel offers a inexpensive shuttle to other parts of the island multiple times throughout the day. Breakfast is amazing and the staff at the restaurant and bar are extremely friendly and helpful.
Relaxing stay in Koh Samui”
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!”
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.
Average experience overall, staff came across as not very genuine, Place was slightly aged, Food was rather standard. Perhaps being slightly harsh as am used to the Centara brand being top notch and having experienced and loved the Centara Grand Krabi.
Great hotel for a relaxing get away”
Really enjoyed our stay here, very relaxing atmosphere, ideal for kicking back and relaxing with a book or a couple of beers. Nice beach area and a 3 pools, the main pool does seem to be busy all the time but you can take a sunbed on the beach and the have the option of a few steps the the sea, pool or bar. Rooms were good, not a problem for us but there are a lot of stairs up and down to the villas
Nice laidback getaway”
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.
i booked this hotel because i had stayed here before and the memories from staying in this hotel was a good one. when we checked in, the staff brought us to our suite and show us what we need to know. feels so relaxed. the bed is also very comfortable. i kept waking up late because the bed just makes me wanna sleep again.
