Drawing its inspiration from the Sino-Portuguese architecture that characterises Phuket Town, this resort on Karon Beach is backed by a green hill and grouped around its own landscaped water park with its meandering lazy river, waterslides, kids’ pool with a waterslide, and adults-only pool with its own pool bar. You will love the other exhilarating leisure activities on offer, including kayaking, windsurfing and sailing, snorkelling, tennis, and Muay Thai (Thai boxing). Diving can be arranged, and there’s a fully-equipped fitness centre. Spa Cenvaree combines ancient healing practices that reflect Thailand’s wellbeing heritage with modern rejuvenation techniques to nurture and rebalance the body. The resort also has age-specific kids clubs, free Wi-Fi, and seven restaurants and bars. The rooms, suites and pool villas (49 to 209 sqm.) feature a balcony or terrace with soothing views of the pools, the gardens or the sea. Phuket International Airport is less than one hour away.

Vegetarian family of 4 from Sydney, Australia. We booked a room with a plunge pool and club lounge access both of which we did not regret.
Check in was easy. We were guided to private check in at the club lounge. The club lounge offers exclusive access to a quiet lounge, breakfast, midday soup, afternoon snacks and evening cocktails. It never seemed busy. Pay looked after us by ensuring there were some vegetarian options.
The other hidden benefit of the club lounge was getting two items laundered for free each day.
Staff are all very friendly.
There are multiple pools. A large family pool with swim up bar. Smaller kids pools. A lazy river and a cliff jump of 2 and 4m. Getting a seat was not hard.
My highlight was the beach. Soft white sand and crystal clear water. The hotel has direct access and it was never busy compared to Karon Main Beach.
The plunge pool was great after a warm day out on the town. It was cold but refreshing and comfortable within a few minutes. The kids loved dipping in even after their day at the swimming pool or beach swimming.
The buffet breakfast was extensive but got a little repetitive after 6 days.
We dined at the Cove twice (Thai) and the Italian restaurants once. The chefs were very accommodating with vegetarian options. Special thanks to Anan who always checked whether we were satsified with our dining options.
The resort itself is about a 15-20 minute walk from central Karon or a 200 baht tuk tuk (expensive but worth it in the heat). Resort location was good for us being away from the busier areas.
Overall a great stay and we would definitely consider coming back.

We are very happy we booked at Centara Grand Beach in Phuket!

Firstly - realize it will take about an hour to get to the resort from the airport. If you can book Phuket Best Tours before you go you will save money for there and back. The resort will charge you 1800 baht from the hotel. Best tours charged us 700!

The hotel itself is spacious and quiet but only about 5-10 minute walk (on beach or road) to the busier Karon Beach town that has many restaurants, shops, massage shops, etc. You will find the restaurants much cheaper than at Centara Grand. Also even if you just go in to buy water it is worthwhile as the resort only gives you one complimentary bottle per day and any to buy are expensive. You can not drink the tap water. The breakfast buffet is varied and worth the price as not much else for choices. The food was good for breakfast and the other meals as well. The rooms were very clean, spacious and quiet.

The pools were all lovely and you could always find a pool chair regardless of the time of day. The beach was at the far end so much quieter than when you got closer to Karon. You could easily walk over 30 minutes one direction! The water was warm, clear and the beach powdery sand. There were no other resorts in this area this close to the beach.

All the staff were helpful and friendly. I have never been anywhere else that the staff went to far out of their way to be pleasant.

We arrived here 4 days ago and so far so good! The location of the resort is breathtaking especially in the morning. The beach is always clean and eco friendly ( they pick up the trash on the beach and put it in the big fish container). Our favourite restaurant is the Cove restaurant whit their perfect buffets ( every night is different kind of buffet). The resort has a lot of different ways to have fun here from water slides, lazy river, tennis court, big gym and kids club.
The Carpe Diem team is the highlight of this trip with their activities around the pool! Their pool games are so much fun and puts a smile to everyone face. Also they provide entrainment for adults with evening programs such as Trivia night and Latino night. They showed us basic salsa steps and that was awesome.

We will recommend this resort to our friends and family.

Spending 3 nights at the hotel is not enough. Hotel's facilities and staffs are so nice.
Pool suite room - is the best choice for couple and solo traveler.
The Cove restaurant - breakfast buffet is so awesome. There are many gluten free menu and so tasty. Dinner buffet is also interesting because chefs are so skillful. Especially for grilled menu. While the Mare restaurant that is located opposite the Cove provides an Italian cuisine and also romantic private dinner by the beach.
Water park area is so excited. Long river cruise and waterfall point are so fun.
There are large kid room in the hotel. So, parents don't need to worry about their kid. All area can be accessed by wheelchair.

Tips :
1.) You don't need to call taxi to find any seafood restaurants in the city because the hotel provides you an awesome and tasty seafood menus with reasonable price (cheaper than in the city).
2.) You don't need to buy a trip to some islands because the hotel also provide you all facilities better than in the islands.
3.) Please buy a hotel money package such as Buy a THB10,000 you will get THB13,000 for all spending in the hotel. It's worth.

Thank you Mr.Sid, Mr.Ray and teams from the restaurants for nice and warm welcome service.

Everything about this hotel was great from the very helpful staff who took the time to contact our different touring companies to arrange for our pickup to the huge rooms with their incredible balconies. The beach at Centara matches any beach we've been to and is quiet. The breakfast buffet although it didn't have a lot of variety was delicious and the buffet staff were the best. The only sad point during our stay came as we were checking out, when I found a charge of 77Baht for a telephone call which I never made. Although the amount is less than 3 dollars and our combined bill was for thousands, the manager made a great deal out of it, going as far as trying to call the number to prove I was lying. I've never in my life made a call from any hotel I stayed at, besides why I should I do that when I have free roaming from my cell carrier...She finally made me feel like she was doing me a great favor by removing the charge. Again it's not about the money but the principle.

Not worth it. The room we booked was Deluxe Spa Seaview (room 442), well yes the room itself inside is exactly as pictured, except for the seaview part. And that the balcony is kinda shared. There is a shared 'window/glass wall' that has wooden blinds that divides our balcony from another person's, so while you have your hot tub people can see through the crack in the 'wall', and not sure how the wooden blinds are locked. It's pretty uncomfortable. For the view, I look over the concrete top of one of the restaurants/fitness center/spa, and also a lot of the view is onto another room's corner balcony and it blocks the seaview. It is the furthest you can get away from the beach (it backs onto a mountain), so I can see some sea but I would not say it's a great view, especially for the price. Our room has little things like the makeup mirror is broken, and one pillowcase has what looks like a smudge of makeup and dried blood spots in it. They do a nice turn down service, and I guess they usually give a local fruit and we got a note about it with cutlery but no fruit. There was yelling and shouting coming from below my room, and I went to see what happened, and there was a staff member there with an extremely rude Australian family of 4 with children yelling and the (seemingly drunken) parents yelling obscenely and rudely at me when I asked him why this was happening. Staff did nothing. Not the resorts fault that people are rude, but people who have the luxury of travelling (especially to nice resorts) should be considerate of others. Now, I do believe it was the resort's fault not to do anything such as ask them to stop yelling and being rude or maybe even move my room. Prices are also way over-inflated here. Yes, Phuket is more expensive than other parts of Thailand because its so touristic, but a bottle of large water here is 230THB. I have been to various places in Thailand more than 6 times, including to Phuket previously. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this resort. There are many, just as nice places for much less, with friendly people and nice views you should go to instead.

Dear TravelGirl_Foodie, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to share your experience with us and fellow travellers. We are sorry to read your disappointment. Your feedback has been noted and shared with our team for improvement. For future guests, I would like to clarify your points raised. The connecting door is made of metal and is locked on both sides. To be sure, I checked your room (442) if you would have been able to see next doors guest. I can confirm that it is impossible. The case where you saw a guest yelling our employee followed the correct procedure and called our security team to calm down the situation, which happened, the situation was de-escalated. Furthermore, it is correct that a large bottle of imported water is sold at 230 THB, on the other hand, we provide complimentary bottled water in the rooms, and our local drinking water is sold at 60 THB per bottle. We hope that you have enjoyed your holiday in Phuket and wish to welcome you back to the Land of Smiles during a future holiday. Kind Regards, Mathieu

I travelled with my wife and 14yo son from Australia with many hurdles to jump (due to Covid) just to leave the country and get into Thailand. After PCR tests at the airport we were on our way to Centara Grand Beach Resort. My family were so looking forward to this holiday. My wife has had a real rough couple of years with medical issues so this was going to be the start of good things to come. However that was not to be as it started at check in where, although we had all the documentation that had our inclusions spelled out at the price we were to pay (Luxury Escape package with fine print that extra guest had to pay THB1700/night for all inclusions) the front reception tried to charge us an extra THB4000 on top per night for our son. I should mention that my wife has mobility issues and this was relayed to the hotel prior to arrival. We were buggied to our 1 bedroom villa (We paid extra to Luxury Escape for this) and couldn’t believe it, we had to walk up 3 flights of stairs to a villa that was dirty, full of mold and stunk of it. We spent 2 nights in that room before they were able to move us (Note that the occupancy of the hotel at the time was only at about 40% full.) When we were moved I paid extra again for a 2 bedroom villa as it had smallest number of stairs and was close to the beach and amenities for my wife. Although we had paid extra we could not utilize the Club Lounge as it was closed, all restaurants had the exact same menu (so with an all inclusive dining package this was unsatisfying). The food was very average and on one occasion my son was served raw chicken. The location was great as it’s right on the beach and it pretty much services the hotel guests only although it is not a private beach. I was hoping to do some scuba diving as their website indicated they had a Padi Dive Centre on site but that hasn't been the case for about 6 years. The lazy river at time of our stay was under maintenance so the best part of it was closed. This hotel, although is marketed as a 5 star hotel I would only give it a 2 or 3 star based on Australian standards of hotels. Its run down, with our room furnishings broken, fans not working and TV reception not the best. The only positive I can give this resort is their SPA. The staff their were very professional and good at what they do. One of the best SPA's I have been to in Phuket. Breakfast buffet was not up to standard with hot meals being cold and food stale from dinner the night before. However the omelet station was good. If you are expecting a hotel of a 5 star quality with luxury inclusions, I would not recommend this place. We were bitterly disappointed as every other stay in Phuket we had prior (not at this hotel as this was our first stay) had been amazing.

We were a party of 7 (4 Adults & 3 kids) who stayed at the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Spa Hotel for a week between 15th-22nd Feb 2020.
We have had a truly wonderful experience from start to finish throughout the duration of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all very polite, kind and courteous. Every request was accommodated promptly with a smile.
We picked the resort as it seemed to be the most family friendly, we were not disappointed, whilst the hotel itself is a little dated and could do with a some refurbishment we had no complaints about the facilities, service, food and overall hospitality which were all 5 star.
Upon Check in we were given a complimentary massage per room which was a wonderful touch.
Both myself and sister agreed that It was by far the best message we had ever had and were amazed that we didn’t have to pay a penny towards it.
The breakfast at the hotel was fantastic, wide choice at the buffet and onsite oven from which freshly baked bread and pastries were served.
Staff at the buffet couldn’t have been more accommodating in terms of our vegetarian dietary requirements, they remembered my request for veggie Pad Thai on the first morning and thereafter asked for the next 6 days if I would like to have some Pad Thai every morning for breakfast. They even accommodated our requested for Indian masala Chai - nothing was too much trouble.
The Hotel is ideally located within walking distance of Karon beach and a short 10 min ride into Patong which makes it the perfect location for those wanting to venture out and visit the local tourist hot spots.
Overall a wonderful week spent at this hotel, would highly recommend especially for families with children.

Stayed at the Centara grand for 2 nights with my mother to basically just super chill out and enjoy the beach location, also visit my cousin who works here as the executive sous chef. Upon arrival check-in was smoothly and swiftly done by a lovely lady called Namwaan. Thanks, top marks, very professional, welcoming, and pretty cute too. Due to room shortages for our selection of bed choice we recieved a complimentary upgrade which was greatly appreciated. Stunning beach-front location with top facilities and top class restaurants. Highly recommended. Keep up the good work, will be back again for sure!

We stayed here as a family of 3 for 8 nights.
The entertainment team; Sanja, Sara, Gino and David have been fab. Really welcoming and our son enjoyed their pool games.
They make all guests feel welcome and are lovely to chat to.
The jumping wall and water slides are what’s kept our son busy for most of the holiday. The lifeguards at the top are great with all the kids. They knew our son’s name after the first day and shouted lots of encouragement. He is now a great water bomber!
You need to expect slow service at lunch when it’s busy. It took us a while to get used to this as didn’t have this ever at the Katathani, our first hotel we always stay in.
The hotel is really expensive for food and drink and there is nowhere on site to get snacks. Feels a rip off to be honest as other 5 star resorts do not charge these prices. We ate out each night due to this.
The swimming pool needs urgent attention to stop guests injuring themselves. The tiles have cracked and some missing in several places. The steps are camouflaged and a trip hazzard. Quite shocking really.
Overall we had a great time but sort the pool out and do more in the kids club for over 8s. It’s pitiful as it is.

Sorry can’t help since we live in Australia. It is very easy to change money at money changers in Thailand but you will need some Baht before you get there. Don’t change at airport upon arrival. Definitely get some in England first.
