Centara Villas Samui, Koh Samui
On the southern tip of Koh Samui, near the traditional fishing village of Hua Tanon, is the Centara Villas Samui. A sun lover’s holiday paradise, Koh Samui (‘the coconut island’) is Thailand’s third largest island resort and no longer the footloose and fancy-free backpacker’s secret hideaway it once was.
Koh Samui now rivals Phuket as one of Thailand’s most popular holiday destinations; with regular flights arriving at its own airport disgorging keen holidaymakers. There are a range of accommodation options on Koh Samui, from modest beach bungalows to luxury holiday resort hotels. The island still retains its laid-back atmosphere though, with friendly locals, good food as well as some not-too-commercial local attractions; like a crocodile farm and butterfly garden, to keep visitors entertained. Night time is party time with open-air discos as well as music bars throbbing in the darkness.
Centara Villas Samui is just 15 minutes by road to the night life areas of Lamai Beach, 30 minutes to Chaweng Beach, and 27 kilometres to Samui International Airport. With its own private frontage on Natien Beach; the resort villas cascade down a hillside to the fine white sand of the Gulf of Thailand. With the abundant green foliage the setting has a peaceful, natural tropical ambience.
An exotic four-star resort that is perfect for a first-class hideaway.
Other than relaxing on the beach; leisure activities include three freshwater swimming pools, a long tail boat service for fishing or snorkelling, motorcycle, jeep, bike and kayak rental, a PADI dive centre, as well as a children’s playground.

The spa’s treatment rooms are individually designed with jungle themes and also incorporate natural materials including bamboo, local wood, stone, and water elements.
