The facilities, staff, food and value-for-money were outstanding at this hotel and I'd recommend to anyone looking for quiet, relaxing accommodation at Kho Samui. The facilities were outstanding, the staff spoke excellent English and couldn't do enough for us. A highlight of our trip was the Thai Cooking Class, hosted by the President of the Kho Samui Chefs Association and a competitor on Iron Chef. For 1500 Baht, we received a private 2-hour class, a CD featuring the recipes and photos of our experience, and a certificate. We really enjoyed the food we prepared, and we all agreed we learnt to cook the best Pad Thai in Thailand. The restaurant food was amazing, the happy-hour cocktails extremely well-priced and although the hotel is situated 30km out of the main district tourist district of Chaweng, the hotel offered free transport into town twice a day, and the return trip was only 300 baht by private taxi. The local area had a number of great shops, spas, bars and restaurants available and the beach was almost private as there were very tourists about. Will definitely be returning!
"Wonderful hotel, great for families with children"
My family had a great stay at this hotel and were very pleased with how helpful and accommodating the hotel staff and management was in ensuring we had a great stay. To assist with our six month old, the hotel provided a bottle sterilizer, baby bath, extra waters, and went out of their way to clean and sterilize items used at mealtime which really helped us overall. The friendly staff would play and interact with our baby and keep her entertained to give us some time to eat as well. The ocean is very calm a the resort and we had no problem taking the baby in the water which she loved. As regular travelers, but new to traveling with a child, this rated as one of our best vacations and overall a superb family resort venue.

My wife and I have stayed there with our little baby girl for 4 nights, 2 in a superior room and then 2 more in a premier room, which is bigger and much more comfortable. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, and they are very children oriented. This goes for the rest of the facilities and location; there's a kids club, 2 swimming pools, very nice garden and a rich breakfast buffet.
Location is perfect since it's located on a beautiful beach in choeng Mon Bay, with many dinning options on the beach side as well as in the small Street at the back of the hotel.
Overall we had a great stay and would definitely recommend.
Some cons we did found - the bathroom in the superior room is a bit old and feels out dated, no lcd TV which is very strange nowadays, and if you stay with small kids is better to ask for a ground floor.

With about 30 friends to help cellebrate the occation, we couldn't be more happy we chose the Samui Kandaburi Resort.
From the Aussie Manager John to his wonderful staff everything went like clockwork, AMAZING!
Most guests stayed for about 5-6 days. Not one hickup !
Would recommend Samui Kandaburi Resort for family or couples. Great value for money in 5 star Resort.
Close to very good cheap Restaurants & Massage. With easy access to the busy shopping strip.
Spent 7 nights at Centara Grand in October 2014, we had a fantastic time the staff were lovely always smiling, made freiends with the some of the girls on reception and they are great girls, stayed in a deluxe ocean view room, it was nice had a big balcony overlooking the grounds and the beach very relaxing. The Hotel is on the beach and its clean white sand it was beautiful, Breakfast needs to be looked at as it beacame very repetative and they need to have a better selection of Tea's.
I had a Body Scrub and massage in the Spa and it was fantastic costs a little more than outside but you cannot compare it was worth it.
Overall we had great holdiay and enjoyed our stay at Centara and will return next year.
"Best Hotel that ever!!!!!! really 5 star DELUXE."
I went on my own as my friend lost her flight at London. I felt so overprotected for the staff, they gave me direction to go to everywhere, Its totally secure Samui you don't need to be scared about anything because its totally safe to go around the Island on your own, there are a lot of Markets an shops, the beach totally safe as well if you want to stay on your own by the Hotel, the bar and Restaurant are just by the beach.
The Staff is the best at the Hotel they are professional and very Helpful. The room are over clean, and they have safety box but everything you have in the room its safe.
Breakfast in the morning SUPER!!!!!!. Just please look after the pets the cats around are HUNGRY!!!!!!
I WILL COME BACK NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!
