Centara Villas Samui

Koh Samui, Thailand

The hotel

Escape to the private world of Centara Villas Samui. Gently nestled on Natien Beach on the south coast of Koh Samui, you can unwind in privacy on a beautiful white sand beach. You will be greeted with warm friendly smiles from a team of staff that will offer a dedicated service to meet your every need and requirement. The Thai-style Villas are dotted amongst the tropical foliage of a gentle hillside leading down to the beautiful beach, the interiors a lovely combination of light linens and dark flooring. For something a little special, upgrade to a Spa Villa with its own Jacuzzi or a Pool Villa complete with an outdoor plunge pool. The Spa Cenvaree provides traditional aromatherapy and therapeutic massages. If you fancy getting out and about, there are special day trips available to Mutsum Island for fantastic coral reef snorkelling and fishing.

We had a really great time at the centara villas but there are a few things that were disappointing.

We had a really great time at the centara villas but there are a few things that were disappointing. First of all, we had arranged for a pick up off the ferry from the hotel, but after waiting for 30 mins at the port and not being able to get ahold of the hotel we had to take a taxi. Not a great start. The staff at the hotel we're mainly excellent, especially the staff at the coral and reef bar and restaurant. The same could not be said for the food though. Expensive buffets dominated meal times, which weren't particularly local Thai cuisine. We were also told we had use of our own WiFi in our room which never worked. There wasn't a router in the room for one. The IT service man appeared to come in and try to fix it but he never actually did anything (nor tell us he wasn't going to be able to do anything) until we called him back and he made up some of excuse of there being an error. The villa itself was beautiful and their beach is stunning. The resort is fully self contained; you need not leave. All in all, I'd recommend it as a place to go and relax but the place did feel a little disorganised. Read less

Having stayed at Centara Villas Samui 8 times previously we were excited to return and spend Christmas in our slice of paradise. We were greeted in Reception by View who efficiently checked us in and after our refreshing welcome drink showed us to our room. View remembered that our favourite villa was villa 120 and she arranged for us to stay here once again. The bed was beautifully adorned with flowers spelling out ‘Welcome Home’ and after a long flight we were delighted to be back in what has come to feel like our second home! The villa was perfect for our needs and set in a private location near the top pool. We made excellent use of the private jacuzzi on the decking and would recommmed upgrading to a Spa Villa to make use of these facilities. The room was cleaned daily and turn down service provided every night. The housekeeping staff do a wonderful job at ensuring that the villas are cleaned to a high standard and so thank you to them, the unsung hero’s who work tirelessly behind the scenes. The hotel is set in a beautiful location in a private cove in the south of the island, a short 15 minute drive firom the hustle and bustle of Lamai. The beach is kept looking pristine by the beach staff who clear away any debris and seaweed that the tide has brought in and rake the beach every morning. The staff lead by Pichai were always on hand to asssit with sun loungers, towels and umbrellas and they were attentive to serving us with drinks, quickly learning our beverages of choice. During the busy Christmas period sunloungers were at times in short supply but Pichai, Noo and others did their best to source alternative loungers and accomodate guests as best they could. We had breakfast and lunch in the hotel every day and were always impressed with quality and freshness of the food. There is a wide selection of Thai dishes on the menu and chef was always willing to make different dishes for us on request. Whilst the food is more expensive in the hotel, for the flavour, quality and choice available we considered it worth it. For Christmas Eve a special menu was available complete with evening entertainment. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and the staff entered into the Christmas spirit with their Santa hats and reindeer antlers! Sadly we had already booked to eat elsewhere before we knew of these arrangements, but feedback from other guests was very positive and it looked like a good evening was had by all. For Christmas Day we dined on the beach under the stars and it was a truly memorable evening. We had the biggest lobsters we have ever had in our lives and they were simply delicious. The true stars of the Reef Cafe are the staff. Led by Anu, nothing was too much trouble and we were treated like royalty. Mam, Pu, Bee, Orathai and Goong were fantastic waitressses and greeted us with warm and friendly smiles everyday. A special mention to Tare who makes the best margaritas along with Au and Jeab who worked hard behind the bar. There are just too many people to thank personally, but we can honestly say that the staff make Centara the special place that it is. We must also offer our condolences for the sad passing of Bonny. She was an incredible lady who will be missed terribly. Anu has taken on the role of restaurant manager supported by Mam and they are doing a great job together. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday in Samui then look no further than Centara Villas. Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we look forward to returning again soon.

ideally suited for anyone looking to relax and not really wanting to venture outside the hotel , rooms could do with an upgrade ( minor) but it’s the location and the staff which heavily out way this . Hotel prices are double what you would pay outside but within a 5 min walk there’s a few places which help bring the cost down and are better than the hotels food in terms of quality , it’s only the food/spirits you really save money but you are staying in a 4 star resort . cool bar is a must and the regular bus services from the hotel will offer a glimpse into local life and this isn’t the location for anyone waiting to be in the mix of it all . This hotel is all about chilling out on the beach and recharging the batteries ready to go again . ( perfect for couples / singles ) Read less
