Amazing experience and lovely resort. Close enough to the Main Street with lovely shops and restaurants. Plenty to do at the resort with the spread out of pools. Top it off with an awesome breakfast! Would definitely recommend (couples or families)

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Centara Seaview and the outstanding feature for us was the great customer service by staff, which sets this resort apart from most hotels in Thailand. We also really enjoyed the breakfast and dinner buffets which were included in our package and Kun Nooh the restaurant manager and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Unlike some hotels in Khao Lak, the Centara is just a few minutes walk from Khao Lak high street, which means there are plenty of options for dining, shopping and motorbike rentals. I would recommend a motorbike rental from Tu motorbikes, just on the opposite side of the road from MacDonalds. Avoid the 'taxis' on the high street as they will not move one inch for less than 200 baht - and you can get a whole day motorbike hire for that price. Finally, just one minor point for improvement - with two huge swimming pools geared towards kids, please enforce the 'Adults only' rule for the third pool, because couples will appreciate the serenity of that beautiful pool and Jacuzzi. Can't wait for our next trip to Centara, thanks for a great holiday! Read less

Our family had a great time at the resort. Good breakfasts, nice swimming pools, location and friendly staff. Ocean was quite rough so we were swimming only in the pools. Also we had a few issues with the rooms which were quickly resolved by the staff. Overall, highly recommend!
