The hotel

The Centara Karon is a modern, light and spacious resort backed by emerald green hills and close to the bars, shops and restaurants of lively Karon. In a great location and with lots of exciting things to do for the whole family this resort is a great choice. For younger members of the family there’s the kids’ club, teenagers also have their very own E-Zone and then there’s the lovely spa for the adults or if you are a family of water babies the swimming pools offer a watery playground alternative to the beach a few minutes' walk away. The resort is comprised of four residential areas - the terraces which are ideal for parties of two adults, are situated in a separate building with nine floors offering views of the ocean and gardens, the lagoon offers spacious rooms ideal for families, the tropical area is ideal for guests seeking a more inclusive experience and then the cabanas, set in a garden position offering a more secluded premium location.

First time in Centara, Karon Beach, stayed for 16nts. Rooms were absolutely spotless, huge, great balcony over looking pool. The bed was to die for, along with linen, if I could have packed it into my back pack, I would have taken it home. The staff were spotless & daily cleaning of our rooms with towels & linen when needed. The two pools were fantastic, fun for the kids & parents along with a huge adults only one as well. At 4-6pm is when a lot of fun could be had. Happy 2 hour with the staff, Haris, Jub, Tae & Mae kept us entertained with their beautiful way & big smiles. The cocktails were excellent & many laughs were had. Thanks so much guys, you made our stay memorable. The location was also good, walk to anywhere, anything, street food is the best, Kata beach magnificent a short tuk tuk ride with bars on the beach & great food. Do not leave without heading up by tuk tuk to the bars on the hill overlooking the bay & experiencing the sunsets. Cocktails & food amazing at Gu Bar & After Beach bar. Would highly recommend this place, great value! Read less
