Our 12 night stay at Centara Grand Beach Resort was nothing but amazing. The location is beachfront and private, yet a comfortable walking distance to everything in Karon. The resort itself was starting to look a little tired in places but there was a alot of maintainance people around fixing areas. The food and drinks were beautiful although extremely expensive, I can eat in 5 star restaurants in Australia for the same price. The reason I would HIGHLY recommend this resort was the staff. I watched them day after day deal with the most disgusting people and not once did I ever see any of them deal in a way that was anything but highly professional. Management should be extremely proud of their staff. A huge special mention to Ya (Splash Pool Bar) and Aria (Carpe Diem) My daughter doesn't make friends easily but these 2 ladies were so kind and helpful with her. She has talked about them both everyday since we left. Thank you so much ladies, your professionalism is beyond excellent!!! Your lovely nurse you have on-site was amazing when I sliced my foot open on a tour, without her daily care who knows what infections I would have ended up with. A few other people I would love to mention too is Billy (Carpe Diem), Ray/Stingray/Ray Master (Coast Beach Club), Beer (Pool Manager), Tick (Kids club) and Mui (Pool) These employees go above and beyond for holiday makers in your resort. Again these 8 people are the biggest reason we are coming back next year. A credit goes to all your staff through from the cleaners through to management everyone made us feel so welcome and part of the Centara Family. See you next May 😁😁 Read less

This is our second time staying at the Centara Grand and what an amazing time we had! The hotel is one of the best places I have stayed. The service from check in, to meals, to the day spa and kids club was all fantastic. I absolutely love this place and as a travel agent, I recommend this property to all my clients and family. It is located right on the beach front in a quieter area of Karon. It only takes about 10 minutes walk along the beach or a short taxi ride and you are in the heart of Karon. The meals we had were all fantastic and the breakfast has to be one of the best I have had in Phuket. My kids also loved the kids club and they had some great activities to keep them occupied. The adults only pool is very peaceful and over looking the beach. We also loved the water slides and spend many hours having races down them. I can not wait for my next stay at the Centara Grand Beach Resort! Read less
