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!
The resort is in a private location and it's easy to get to Lamai and Chaweng with their shuttle bus or by taxi. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the Villa and views were incredible and the food delicious. An exceptional place to stay.
This hotel is quite exceptional in every respect. It nestles in a pretty and secluded bay. The rooms are well proportioned and set in beautifully planted grounds. The staff are well trained and nothing is too much to ask of them.

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.

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Stayed in the hillside section which has its own pool and restaurant. The beach-side section also has its own pool and restaurant with beautiful views of the beach and sea. The additional cost of living beach-side is not worth the extra expense. The hill-side rooms are excellent; good size rooms and a very large bathroom. The balcony is spacious and provided glimpses of the sea and pool.
The reception staff were very helpful and promptly dealt with any request. The housekeeping girls were very friendly and did everything with a smile.The buffet breakfast was very good and would satisfy most people except for the whinging brigade that are never happy.
The hotel is located about a fifteen minute walk to the main Chaweng Beach area. Baht buses are frequent but in the daytime a pleasant walk along the beach is very enjoyable. I would definitely stay at this hotel again
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.
Looked to be the best place in Chaweng by far! Superb pools, loads sun loungers, beautiful beach, lovely hotel and was really pleased with our hotel selection.
Staff facilitated us and our friends in a neighbouring villa too.

"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!!!!!!!
