The Centara Villa’s is located outside of Karon on the way to Patong in Phuket Thailand. We arrived about 9a. I was delirious from the 12 hour time difference and more than 24 hours of travel. We were greeted by a cool towel and coconut milk still in the coconut. It was nice and refreshing.
The Villa’s are located on a hill overlooking The Andaman Sea. All of the villa’s face the beautiful blue green water. So you are guaranteed a view. No looking at dumpsters and parking lots here.
We had Villa 217. It had a great view and the room was big and spacious.
Our Villa was on the far west side of the property. There are lots and lots of steps. Breakfast and Dinner are served at the Cliff Restaurant on the top of the hill beside the lobby. It is a hike to get there. We would climb and climb, then rest a few minutes and look at all the beautiful greenery and flowers. Then we would climb some more.
You can call for a tuk tuk to pick you up at your villa and drive you up, but then you would miss all the beautiful plants and flowers that grow all over the property. Lunch is served at the Bayview Restaurant. It is located by the pool. All of the food was amazing, and we tried a little bit of everything. The view from both restaurants are beautiful too.
A lot of the hotels in Phuket are located across the street from the beaches and there are electric lines that get in the way of the view. The Centara Villa’s is one of the few that has an unobstructed view of the sea. We loved Centara Villa’s and could not have made a better choice of hotels.
