Larger hotels?

Hi

I am going to samui at end of July/August and have been looking at Centara grand as it has been recommended for families but unfortunately availability isn't good and we are looking at requesting rooms. I wondered if anyone can recommend alternative hotels with activities and a good beach. My children are 14 and 16 and like to meet other kids so this is why I think a larger hotel may suit.

Thanks

Hi

Have a look Amari plamreef in north chaweng, The imperial boathouse in cheongmon beach. These may suits.

Cheers,

As an alternative another vote for the Imperial Boathouse.

Thanks I have just looked and it does look really nice. It only comes up as a three star in my trailfinders brochure...is it a similar size and standard to Centara? The area actually looks a little nicer than Chaweng. If you had to choose between them which one would you go for?

By the way I meant to say thankyou Sweetpea and Chrella for all your advice...you have given me tips on my Phuket questions as well. Currently I am flying to Bangkok for three days and then we are going to either do Chiang Mai and Koh samui or Elephant Hills and Phuket ( no idea of best hotels there). Weather better in Samui which is why it appeals but Phuket a little more availability and cheaper.

You welcome :)

I think The boathouse are indeed solid 3.5*. The hotel are smaller than Centara grand. I have never stay in boathouse but been inside. So I can't really comment on service or their standard.

I really do think The Amari are equivalent to Centara grand.

I would agree that the Amari is equivalent to the CG.
