My husband and I stayed here for a few nights a couple of weeks ago. It is a fantastic hotel, the staff are great and the restaurant is delicious. Our villa had amazing sea views from our balcony.
The only negative was the city tour we booked through the hotel which included trekking with elephants, this was not a happy experience, the guides shouted at the elephants when they didn't want to walk up the steep track with us on their back. It was not a very nice environment and the elephants were not looked after properly. I found this quite traumatic and everyone in the group was very subdued afterwards. I am surprised a hotel of this calibre endorses a company like this. I hope they either stop using this organisation for elephant trekking or make sure the conditions are improved if they to continue using them.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled in lush tropical greenery and overlooking Karon Beach and the Andaman Sea, the four-star Centara Villas Phuket is a romantic hideaway located steps away from the sweeping expanse of Phuket’s Karon Beach. Each romantic, private villa, nestled within its own screen of green, directly faces the sea from a dramatic inclined perch, ensuring that views are endless and the quiet all-pervading. The minimum villa size is a generous 46 square metres and some come with the option of a plunge pool or a Jacuzzi. The large two-tiered swimming pool, with its fabulous ocean views and shady spots, is the epicentre of relaxation. For another form of relaxation, Spa Cenvaree is a refuge for the senses offering a choice of therapeutic treatments including traditional Ayurvedic methods and Thai foot and body massages. The resort also offers hands-on Thai cooking classes, and two restaurants and a bar that boast sublime ocean views. For those who wish to venture out of its oasis of serenity and tranquillity, the tour information desk will be delighted to arrange activities such as island-hopping, bungee jumping, and family treks. For a change of pace, a complimentary scheduled shuttle service connects the resort with the fabled nightspots of Patong and Karon. Centara Villas Phuket is just one hour's drive away from Phuket International Airport. ... more less
