“Heavenly Bliss.”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

My wife and I arrived back yesterday from centara villas samui 14th May, after spending 3 weeks there we can honestly say that we are truly relaxed and chilled, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left I must say I have never met in my entire life such a warm and hospitable nation of people that in itself is truly remarkable in today's world ,every person we met just couldn't do enough for us and treated us with such warmth and affection, we arrived at Centara Villas samui , and we were met by a charming young lady who gave us a cold towel and refreshing drink which was very much appreciated as it was so hot, she explained the layout of the hotel and went off to sort our room out , we were given room 212 which was a pool villa set amongst the most beautiful tropical plants overlooking the sea ,we both knew that this was going to be a special holiday and it most definitely was. On our second day there the bell rang to our villa and I was presented with a cake and fruit and card wishing us a happy anniversary from one of the hotel staff it was such a lovely gesture as it was our 25th wedding anniversary on that day . The food in the hotel was absolutely gorgeous and we ate there on a few occasions but we were told by a friend who visited here two years ago to try the other restaurants just down the road which we did and there food was also out of this world but a lot cheaper than centara, but the quality of presentation or location was not the same as Centara, however let me say that all three restaurants fishermans outlet, baanlamom, and barracuda are well worth every penny and our favorite one was barracuda we ate here most nights and you must try there garlic fried rice it's a must,we were also told to visit the cool bar just down the road but unfortunately we found it closed due to this being Samuis slow or quiet time of year. We ventured out on several excursions and on one day we were waiting for our pick up from the hotel lobby when the assistant manager introduced himself to us , he gave us some fascinating information about the island and local history and we spoke for nearly an hour until our lift arrived he then said if there was anything he could help us with do not hesitate to ask,I've explained earlier that Thai people can not do enough for you and this was just one of the examples,words cannot describe what a stunning country this is,and how warm friendly and genuine the people really are. Don't take my word for this go check it out for yourself .Thank You to all the staff and I mean All the staff from the housekeepers, gardeners , maintainance, bar staff ,lobby staff chefs and managers for making this a wonderful 25th anniversary and we will definitely be returning . THANK YOU CENTARA VILLAS.

Rosie the stray dog is becoming famous, she does not actually belong to the Hotel but wanders in and out of the grounds, she is a very popular addition.

We chose this hotel for a relaxing end to our holiday and because of the pool villa - which for us made the holiday.

There are a lot of stairs we were lucky enough to be in room 345 nearest the bottom pool and the beach. The pool was lovely we were quite secluded. The area around the pool could do with a bit of a paint and a proper clean but on the whole it was lovely.

We used to walk along the beach to the Fishermans Outlet for dinner and a drink in the Kool bar which was both very nice.

We used the top pool most of the time which was always empty so we had it to ourselves most of the time.

We thought that they could clean this pool a bit better than they did but the view from it made up for it.

In all a nice hotel for a short break - we stayed for four nights.

Dear Pearlypaula,
Thank you for writing a review, your comments are very valuable, with regards to pool cleaning, we have just emptied, refurbished and refilled the Spa pool and are now beginning to work our way through the other pools as we enter the slightly slower season in Samui.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon.

We stayed here for our honeymoon back in August 2013 and this hotel did not disappoint, The service was great, the staff & Management friendly, the food was fantastic, the location was paradise, the rooms & pools were clean.
I had to visit the doctors during my stay & the reception staff were so helpful, they arranged for someone to take us and arranged for us to be picked up. My Brother who stayed the month prior to us also had an unfortunate situation where both his children ended in hospital (this was NOT hotel related) and the management could not do enough for them, they were fantastic.. I have travelled to various parts of Thailand and stayed in some great hotels (and I do a lot of research and read all reviews before choosing my hotels carefully) but I can honestly say when I am next in Samui I will most definitely be staying at the Centara Villas. The location is great, secluded however a short stroll to 3 other restaurants which were all very good. Although there are steps, you soon get used to them after the 1st couple of days & this should not deter you from choosing this hotel. anyway we needed a bit of exercise after eating all the delicious food and drinking the cocktails. If you are reading this review and thinking of booking, hesitate no longer- you will not be disappointed. We have just booked our holiday in July to stay in Centara Villas in Karon with friends and am looking forward to it and hoping It will be on par.

Had a two week relaxing break at the end of march. Fantastic location and the staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Special thanks to Green in the Pavilion bar. She was brilliant always happy and smiling and made you feel very welcome. The food in the hotel was beautiful but found the different buffet nights particularly expensive.
A short walk away is the fisherman's bar which was beautiful food for a fraction of the price of the hotel.
The amenities of the hotel were good, and the rooms were cleaned twice a day. The house keeping ladies againbwere fantastic and very respectful.
The only complaint but it is minor, is that parts of the hotel are starting to look a bit shabby, eg one or two tiles missing in the too pool and paint flaking in the room. It's is very minor, but if these issues are not addressed soon, then the hotel will look very shabby very quickly and it's a shame if this happens as it really is like paradise and is beautifully clean.
Overall a fantastic stay and I would definitely visit again.

We stayed here from the 24 April 2014 to 2 May 2014. We loved every bit of our stay here , the rooms are lovely and private , the staff are beautiful with their Thai smiles . The stairs are actually fantastic exercise , I came home thinner and feeling more energised.
All we want to do is save to come back !!
We hired a scooter to get around the island , and we used the local Fishermans restaurant to eat dinner.
I highly recommend this resort , it really is a ' Taste of Heaven '.
Thanks you - Warren and Anne Robins - room 301
