Fabulous hotel. Third visit as part of the Centara Masters golf. The staff are friendly and helpful, make everyone feel very welcome. Three pools to choose from, and the staff are very attentive. The grounds are magnificent and lovely to walk around
This was 5th time staying in a pool villa at the Centara and I don't think it will be our last. We just love the ambiance of the place the fantastic staff and the fact it is right in the centre of town. The staff in the club lounge deserve a special mention. Every one one of them was very friendly and eager to please. The staff at the villa side are also exceptional and any problems we encountered were dealt with swiftly and efficiently. We had recommended the hotel to two sets of friends who also stayed there during our stay and they also had a fantastic time and will likely return.
1. This is a great hotel and if you like the colonial style then it does get better for luxury and services. Colonial style hotel with amazing big rooms, high ceilings and balconies. Great bed and pillows. 2. That staff are amazing and friendly and really look after you. The little things like chocolates each day and turning down you bed - they staff go the extra mile. A great little piano bar with fab music, wine and nibbles. 3. The gardens are amazing - if not the best I have seen in Asia. The pool and spa are very good. A kids center if you have little one is available each day. 4. Close to Hua Hin centre - the night markets etc. 5. The beach is not great (rocky) but not really attributable to the hotel. 6. I am a golfer and the hotel is close to some of Asia best courses - Banyan and Black Mountain..... This hotel is 10 / 10.....
Shared room 156 with an old golfing buddy. Clean large all amenities within short walking distance. Lovely informative and happy staff always willing to assist. This was our first visit and we were impressed....!
As the tittle says second time around but this time in the Villa side. We stayed 6 nights with two adults and two children age 7 and 9. Check In: We arrived 11am and although our villa was not ready until 3pm they allowed us to use the club lounge for lunch and kids got to swim in the pool until our room was ready so no complaints from us. Room: We could not fault anything about the room. Very clean, plenty of space including a walk in wardrobe, large bath tub and a huge and comfortable bed. Those who have kids and are unsure wether sleeping in a seperate room is safe that depends on the maturity of your kids. Our 7 and 9 yr old loved having their own space, air con was excellent and there is small gate to get to the pool however very easy to open at any age. Our pool was clean, there are two sunbeds and wonderful day bed to lounge under when it gets too hot. Plus a newspaper delivered every morning was lovely! House Keeping: Excellent!! Club Lounge: If you are looking at doing nothing but relax and using the resort facilities I would suggest getting the Club Lounge. This included a buffet breakfast (plenty to choose from including made to order meals such as eggs benedict, eggs on toast, omelettes, crepes, waffles and soup and noodles) Lunch is from 11am-3pm which included buffet selection of fruit, soups, scones etc, afternoon tea 3pm-4.30pm pretty much similar to lunch, pre dinner drinks 5.30pm-7pm included a large selection of alcoholic beverages (cocktails as well) hot finger foods, salads, nuts etc and after dinner which we did not use. So really there is no need to leave the resort to eat!! It also included two pieces of laundry per day free which was a big help. Wifi was excellent in the villa however not so good around kids pool, public areas but not a concern for us. Hotel Facilities: We used the gym (very clean however aircon is pretty cold), kids pool which is large but can be quite as not many children were in there so at times our kids were really loud, kids club (very basic but a nice little place for the kids to cool off, be kids and parents get a few hours to them selves). Staff: Amazing! very tentative, remembered our drink orders from day one and my son who is anaphylaxis to nuts and eggs, staff were very helpful in finding alternatives. Those who do have allergies must be very clear with staff as even though my son is anaphylaxis to eggs they made a sandwich with mayonnaise so just make sure to be clear. Overall we had an amazing time and we cant to come back.
This was my third stay at Centara and I can only say it was as good as I remembered! The staff are very friendly and accommodating, and I have no hesitation in recommending it. It was unfortunate that the museum/tea room was undergoing renovation - this is a lovely, calm and relaxing place to sit and enjoy a cup of tea, but it will be reopening soon. Congratulations Centara on your wonderful resort!
You know how amazing it is that the beach is just a door away out your backyard? Well this is what you get while staying at their exquisitely white pool villas over here. A brisk walk down through windy paths among luscious greens, a security guard stood responsively to open the low garden gate and ushered us onto the beach. Alright, the beach is not the best of Thailand, is overly crowded, sea’s rough most times of the year. But hey, it’s only 2 to 3 hours, a short drive away from Bangkok. And less rowdy then Pattaya definitely. What I truly enjoyed staying here was the cocktail session they had around five-ish in the evening. A small array of starters, but what was most important was the free flow of alcoholic beverages which superseded all other whatever that was served. Breakfast was served in the same area. The spread was far from a feast but suffice a pleasant morning meal, quiet and tranquil by the pool side, ,… till the crowd arrived later. The pool villas serve well, a retreat to subside into private seclusion. And when the exploration mood takes over, the beach up front to venture. Or cross the road to where the main compound of Centara is, a large garden of topiaries. The main attraction a large elephant one could walk under for a blessing. There is an extensively large pool across there as well. You can dump your kids a good few hours in their Kids Club should they become too annoying eating into your me or couple time. The sea is only a few steps away and offer another convenient venue to dump your kids… but that’s a different kind of story. Well, when it does get too hot and your villa is too much of a walk back, you can seek refuge in their cool and well stocked executive club. There were always food and drinks available no matter what time I entered. And soon it was 5 pm and then it was the cocktail session across the road again, oh yeah. Me time, couple time, a trip with family. The way I see it this place fits all. The villa was a bit tight in living space, especially if you have infants along for the trip. Outdoor shower space was large, exposed oval bath tub was very inviting. Tap ran well, water filled fast. In room, there was no working table when I attempted to do some work. So, I had to double as food for mosquitoes when I sat on the deck chair out by the pool in the evening. It was a good break, family with kid.
I booked a villa it costs a lot more than a standard room in the main hotel which my friends stayed in ,totally overpriced and small ,it did not even have a table and chairs in there ,my friends standard room was much bigger,even though I paid a lot more I actually tried to move to the standard room because it was better unfortunately there were fully booked
For the third year in a row we attended the World Masters golf tournament held in Hua Hin.The majority of the 500 odd entrants stayed at the Centara Resort where the tournament was based . There were welcoming and presentation dinners held poolside ; everything went off like clockwork,in their usual Thai manner , nothing is a problem to these people.The accommodation ,service and food quality is excellent,only exceeded by the friendly ,helpful and always smiling staff.We spent a lot of time around the Garden Pool ,located about 20 meters from our room.This place has to be seen to really appreciate it magnificence. For a really good experience this place is a must. Best breakfast I have ever seen, magnificent gardens and pools and right outside the front gate is the city of Hua Hin.I would certainly recommend this place.
I was invited to the Centara Grand Masters Golf Tournament and stayed at the Centara Grand Beach Resort. What a pleasant surprise the ambience welcomes you the moment you walk through the sumptuous foyer. The sight of manicured topiary delights the senses leading down to clean beach scape. My suite was spacious and well appointed and the beds are so comfortable it was very hard to leave. Congratulations to the Centara team they really know how to stage an event the food and entertainment was amazing. I will be back very soon.
