Island Life (Part 1)

We have been painfully aware that these blogs have been becoming fewer and farther between over recent weeks - Apologies for that! I guess that the novelty has now well and truly worn off, combined with the facts that we will be imminently return to blighty, and have been doing very little of note, have all been contributing factors.

Me and Panini arrived after one of the most mentally gruelling 11hr flights on record. Sure there was good inflight entertainment. But there was also no legroom, a fat man with an extra long elbow to the right of me, Panini to the left and Human fingernails and pills in the pouch in front of me (fig.1). I sent a picture to Qantas saying how a child …

A rollercoaster of a week

We collected Mike from the pier late Wednesday afternoon. The a/c in the Nissan had stopped working and the fridge man (the guy on the island who fixes fridges and car a/c) thought there was a leak and we needed to bring it back at some point for him to confirm a price after his investigations. Mike wanted it fixing today even though it was 4.30pm. The fridge man found 2 holes in the pipes which he fixed and he re-gassed it too. Halfway ...

... we had been too busy painting- we appeared to be the only people who had really gone to town with the paints. We went for more schnitzels and on the way down to the beach Pete and I realised why you don't buy cheap Thai vodka. We had poured over half of it into a large water bottle and added cola but not enough so we were just about to fill the rest up with cola when we realised the bottom of the water bottle had bulged (much like when you freeze water), I ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui Chaweng

    Wonderful Holiday

    from

    My fiancee and I stayed at the Central Samui Beach Resort for 10 days. The area and location was perfect. The staff are friendly and the beach and pool area are idyllic.

    The weather was hot everyday and the food/drink and shopping could not be faulted. When shopping always offer 1/2 the price and then work your way up to what you're happy to pay. We loved the calculator shopping!

    We recommend The Loft where the Thai food is excellent at very cheap prices. Chez Andy's was very good also. The PFC Bar is always good for a night out. Christie's cabaret show was lots of fun and you would never guess that they are ladyboys. The wave runners are great fun too.

    We would highly recommend this hotel and area.

    Christmas in samui

    from

    Arrived here on the 20th december, room was wonderfull with great views over the beach and swimming pool.

    Staff were very friendly and always lots of sunloungers and beach towels available.

    Even though many customers without reservations arrived on the 26th after the tsunami needing a room and some being extremely rude to the staff, all of the workforce kept their cool and were patient and understanding.

    i would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a change from the bungalow type accomodation in a lovely part of cheweng.

    Fantastic - definitely would return!

    from

    Stayed here November 2004 - would recommend highly. Staff were the best I have come across and were extremely friendly.

    Lovely hotel

    from

    Stayed here in january 2005 beautiful hotel the only down fall was getting a sun lounger went down at 9am one morning and they were all gone. They seem to let people put towels on loungers and they do not come back for hours. staff say they have not got enough beds for the amount of guest. I would advise you to set alarm clock and get down for 8am.Otherwise exellent hotel.

    Paradise found ?

    from

    Stayed at the Central during Feb 05. We were advised by friends to book this hotel following the cancelation of our Phuket holiday. The hotel is truly fantastic, better than we imagined. From the moment you check in ( those iced towels will stay with me forever) the staff make it clear that you are the guest and nothing is to much trouble. Food is expensive compared to street / beach prices but is still cheaper than the UK by a long way. £1.30 for a cold beer at the swim up bar versus £2.65 a pint in my crappy local at home - no comparison. All the restaurants and bars are great, cheap cocktails ( happy hour daily!) and beautiful fresh cooked food.

    Great Honeymoon

    from

    Stayed here for 10 days of our honeymoon July2004. Would definitely recommend. The room was of good size with the biggest bed we had ever seen and the maid service was excellent, with turn-down, chocloates, flowers on the bed etc. The hotel grounds were stunning with beautiful plants, ornamental gardens and a large pool with bar and fountains. The staff were very attentive and the food was excellent quality but wine was dear....stick to the Singha. Everynight there was a gala buffet with some form of entertainment (usually local dancing). Tables would be laid out on the beach, in the gardens or in one of the restarants. Superb. Chaweng area ? Bit of a dusty street with mainly cheap and cheerfull, noisy bars and pubs. Ko Samui on the whole? Only a small island and not that much in the way of attractions (you can do the island tour in 1/2 a day) but great beaches and very friendly people and on the whole we really enjoyed it.

    Paradise

    from

    What can I say - Myself, my husband and 4 year old son spent 2 weeks at this hotel in May 2004 we loved every second. The hotel is perferctly located on a white beach. We never saw our son as the childrens club was so good loads going on all the time from boogie boarding to cooking and walking to the market. Food in the hotel was pricey compared to everywhere else (''''''5.95 pp for a buffet of which I have never in all my life seen anything like it) but it was well worth it. Eating by the sea by candlelight was heavenly. We have just added another member to our family but as soon as we are able we will back to sample the delights of Central Samui Beach Resort.

    Superb Hotel

    from

    Stayed here in october.Everything about it is first class from the staff to location to the food to the rooms.Not cheap but you get what you pay for.We will definately be going back

    Good points and Bad...

    from

    We arrived here in August 2004 and were impressed with the lobby area which is all open air (can be a detterent at night because of mosquitos)! However, we were told that myself and my husband could only have a Twin room (although we booked a King). We even took copies of the emails exchanged between us and the staff and they denied they took place! - strange that! We were also made to feel as though we were being done a favour by being spoken to! We had to wait 4 hours for our room - in the meanwhile we were provided with free drinks

    Fantastic

    from

    Fabulous hotel. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Not a cheap place to stay but we arrived Christmas Eve, hoping to stay until 5th Jan - short notice or what? Managed to squeeze us in and enjoyed our stay. Hotel front practically on the beach but at the quieter end of Chaweng beach.

    Highly receommended.
