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.

I recommend this resort with its private peaceful villas and amazingly hospitable, friendly hard working staff. A quality resort in beautiful surroundings on a beautiful beach. This is definitely a must place for couples and respectful small families.

I visited for five nights to conclude a six-week travel adventure. I was keen to relax by the beach, read, swim, watch movies, complemented by good massages. Having stayed happily at several Centara resorts elsewhere, I took up a good deal offer for my first visit to Koh Samui – Centara Villas’ private pool with ocean view villa – spacious, well-appointed and well maintained and set on a lovely gardened hillside. Centara Villas are located at the southern end of the island – some 45 minutes drive from the Chaweng Beach community and tourist hub – and nearly an hour from the airport. Just beyond the nearest town, Lamai Beach, Natien Beach is dedicated to Centara guests – a pretty beach with clear sand and reef protection. At the end of my first-morning swim, I managed to get my foot stuck by a sea urchin needle – very painful and frightening as I didn’t know what it was at first – or if it was toxic. The staff arranged a car and driver to take me to the nearest doctor, who operated from a humble surgery in Lamai. The doctor removed as much of the disintegrating needle as she could, cleaned my wound with antiseptic, bandaged the foot and sent me off to enjoy a holiday – with the advice that I should keep my foot dry for at least two days – bummer for my vision of sea-swimming and pool-dipping. The driver had stayed with me to assist as needed – helping me secure pharmacy items and getting me back to the resort. I fully expected to pay for the driver and car but gratefully accepted the resort general manager’s refusal to accept any payment. It’s interesting with resorts and hotels – only when something goes wrong do you really see their worth and quality. GM, Paul Maneerat, and his reception team – especially Ploy, are examples of the very best. I was treated seriously but not with any sense of panic, reassured and supported (I was in pain, scared and seriously jetlagged). The staff followed up with phone calls to check that I remained ok – offered to assist in any way needed. Unlike Italian and Turkish hotel in-room TVs (which are pointless), Centara Villas offers current movies and tv series in English, especially appreciated when I had limited mobility. This impeccable service was reflected in the restaurant and bar area down the hill beside the beach. Managers, Pu and Anu, were aware that I’d had a mishap and took extra care of me. I think I was one of two solo guests that week – resulting in additional attention by the staff to include me in activities and chat. Each evening had a themed meal and even a musical duo to accompany beach cocktails. I ended up having all my meals at the resort – the food was very good and reasonably priced – and I just loved being treated so well. (I admit that other guests were also receiving excellent service – I wasn’t as special as I first thought.) Nonetheless, with barman, Tare, making my cocktails each evening, I quickly forgot my foot and had the relaxed few days I so needed. The bar and restaurant staff are good at good-humoured and charming conversation along with food and beverage service. I guess it says something when the barman hugs you goodbye on the last night – the staff knew all the guests’ names and balanced charming informality with professional service. I highly recommend Centara Villas Koh Samui. Read less

Ambience and beach services were good. Special mention for Ploy who was there when we needed her help. Villas are spacious and clean. More shuttle buses for lamai and chaweng would be helpfull. More beach activities will be a welcome as it's far off from the happening places in kohsamui. Read less
