We stayed at Centara resort in Krabi between the 27th April - 12th May and found the resort and staff to be exactly what the doctor ordered! Relax by the resort pool or on the private beech, or if you are feeling energetic take out the free paddle boards or Kayaks or even try diving. With free boat transfers leaving...

My husband and our three years old stayed at the Centara for 8 days. We truly loved it! It was the best family get-away we ever had. Yes, there were little things here and there that the hotel could improve, but overall it was super fantastic. Grounds: the place is really amazing. very lush and very well taken care of....

The setting for the approach to this hotel is amazing, and the views from on land & from the rooms are as shown in the promotional pictures - it is not photoshopped. We stayed club level which, in my opinion, was worth the premium. An air conditioned haven to enjoy the inclusive breakfast, tea & pre-dinner drinks and hor d'oerves....

We recently stayed at the Centara Grand for 4 days. We were coming in from the Four Seasons Chiang Mai, and after we left we stayed at the Peninsula Bangkok. So our definition of "Luxury" is definitely not the same as the management at the Centara Grand. But let's start with the good: 1. Breakfast - they actually have a...
