Centara Grand Beach Resort Karon

Centara Grand Beach Resort Karon resides over a secluded end of Karon Beach, with views stretching across the vast Andaman Sea. Nestling into the green hillside, the low rise terraces grant you direct access to the golden sands of the beach. Just 30 minutes from Phuket Town, and 10 minutes from the lively Patong Beach, the Centara Grand Beach Resort offers a peaceful escape in an idyllic setting.

The stunning Sino-Portuguese style resort boasts its very own waterpark, complete with four swimming pools, water slides, waterfalls, a jacuzzi pool and lazy river. Families can take their pick of three swimming pools – including a children’s pool – while the fourth pool is reserved exclusively for adults, and has its own bar. There is an extensive activities schedule for children and teens in the Camp Safari and E-Zone kids’ clubs to keep all ages entertained. The resort provides an inclusive variety of watersports for the whole family to enjoy, from kayaking, to windsurfing, sailing and snorkelling. You can even book diving lessons to get up close to the marine life of the Andaman Sea.

My expectations were a bit high

New Delhi

Location - a bit away from Karon main market. Not walking distance. Beachfront with sort of private beach. Rooms - interiors were nice but rooms were of a smallish size. The balcony area was unnecessarily huge. Facilities - resort is huge hence you've got to walk and walk to reach out to the restaurants, pool, etc. Breakfast was decent with lot of options. Pool area was crowded and the so called water park wasnt that great. It's just a few slides for children and a lazy river. Service - not impressed. check in took 30-45 minutes. even though i had a VIP treatment promised, didnt feel like it at the resort. More so they even asked us to return the laundry bag on check out which was needed to store some extra items. I have never experienced such in any resort out of the 200+ ive stayed in.
