Centara Grand certainly ticked all of the boxes. Yes, the rooms are a little dated but everything else in the resort is perfect! We had a pool suite, breakfast was one of the best, view was on point, beach was crystal clear and clean!

We've been to Koh Samui before and were reluctant to try a new hotel but so glad we did. The Centara Grand was exceptionally good value for money. The service was impeccable, ice latte and flat white coffee very good, along with the included breakfast. The location of the hotel is on the cleanest beach in Samui and it is...

Absolute great location with very friendly staff. The absolute advantage of the hotel is the broad beach with sufficient space in the shade, Restaurants and shops just outside the hotel while the hotel is more on the quite side of Chaweng, just view minutes walk to the Foot Street with unbeatable prices for diner. If you like party or the...

Nice hotel on Chaweng Beach with everything right outside the gates of the hotel. The pool had some filtration problems which they were fixing so we spent most of our time on the pristine sandy beach.

We stayed at this hotel 4 nights 5 days in April 2017. We were not satisfied with the view & location of our room (it was deluxe ocean facing but no sight of beach just the garden view. They should've said it's a garden view room) so we paid extra fee to upgrade to the ocean view room on our...
