We spend 12 enjoyable days on this resort. Centara Villas Samui is exclusive 4 star hotel with excellent service, smiling staff, good food and clean and roomy villas and private beach. Even though it is not close to Samui evening actions, it is easy to reach the cities whenever you wish. Hotell offers free of charge transportation to market nearby, and scheduled limousine transportation to cities is cheap. Hotell offers several theme nights of which we recommend especially the fire show whis is impressive. As mentioned food on the hotel is excellent but if you want to have change and more affordable prices there are some local restaurants jus 5 minutes walk away. Especially we recommend a modest looking restaurant Fishermans Outlet which we actually visited several times and were never dissaponited on the food, prices or caring and smiling service. Food on the small local restaurants is about half of the price of hotell Anyway 5 stars for Centara Villas Samui. There are however some things that regardless of hotell actions were dissapointing. First the sea. There is nothing a resort can do about the garbage and plastic floating from the sea. Maybe hotell should hire a person whos only task is collecting the things floating to the beach continually. Other thing that really bothered us were the noisy, rude, drunk Russian visitor with no rudimentary manners not so ever The hotel should consider the quota for these noisy groups or risk losing other tourists Read less

Different place with the villas idea, but no good if you're not good on your feet. Pretty confusing to find your way around up the steep hill. Villas are nice, not much else around the hotel. Thanks goodness for the couple of bars next door, you need a taxi everywhere else. Didn't like the hotel trying to make you pay an amount up front, which… Read more
Different place with the villas idea, but no good if you're not good on your feet. Pretty confusing to find your way around up the steep hill. Villas are nice, not much else around the hotel. Thanks goodness for the couple of bars next door, you need a taxi everywhere else. Didn't like the hotel trying to make you pay an amount up front, which they added too but your money wasn't refundable if you didn't spend it all, you couldn't spend it on quite a few things, it's designed to make you stay at the hotel and the food and drinks are at the top end of the price scale.

This hotel is stunning. The grounds are well kept, The views are pure paradise and the staff are wonderful. A couple of things to note is that the hotel is quite remote. There are a few restaurants nearby and a beach bar to the west of the resort, but you will need to travel if you want a busier area. There are also a LOT of steps. great for working off those calories from the gorgeous food, but not ideal for those with any mobility issues. Despite these two facts the resort is incredible. There are three pools which are great for cooling off in the hot sunny days, as well as the sea, which the resort sits next to. The bar and restaurant are located next to the beach. The menu is amazing with a mixture of Thai, Asian, Mediterranean and British food, plus every night has a different themed food night (buffet style) which you can opt for instead of the menu. The bar has an extensive list of cocktails and a mixture of local and well known spirit brands. We attended a wedding here and it was beautiful. The ceremony on the beach and the BBQ style meal after was everything you would imagine a beach wedding to be. Part of what made this holiday so special were the staff. They were so welcoming and warm. A few of those who stood out were Mam, Tare, Pu, Chai, and Au, but all staff were so lovely. The breakfast and lunch Maitre'D was wonderful and always happy to assist especially when we wanted to sit in bigger groups. The spa is definitely worth a visit, we had a 3.5 hr couples massage and left feeling a million dollars I would recommend this resort to anyone wanting something a little extra special and wants to be away from the hussle and bussle of bigger resorts/towns. I'd advise spending a little more for a sea view or a room with a private pool or jacuzzi Read less

An excellent resort. The food, the staff, the rooms, the views, the entertainment is all fabulous. Just be very aware of the many steps. The resort is not near any shops but they offer free transport to the supermarket twice a day.
