The location of our room had an amazing view however had no access via minicar, this meaning we had to climb the stairs to access everything at the hotel which can become an issue in the climate over there.

Bottled beer was sometimes not cold and during the 2 for 1 happy hour you are given 2 drinks when you purchase 1 so the other was getting hotter while you drank the first. Maybe half price drinks could be a better option for happy hour.
The pool bar closes at 5pm which was a bit of a hassle because it is so nice there and you feel like staying there untill dark.

Overall the location was unbelievable, staff were extremely friendly and all spoke exceptional English. Food for all meals was 5 star and the atmosphere of the night time in the restaurant would be hard to beat anywhere.

If you are looking for a still unspoiled exclusive hidden paradise , very near to Patong and Karon, this is the right place to go. Very personal service, nothing is impossible. It starts immediately at the entrance, we were warmly welcomed by very efficient reception staff (one distinguished receptionist Aplle even speaks French)
Santichai is a highly efficient, friendly hotel manager, great staff always helpful and smiling, we were so spoiled by them during our 2 weeks stay, and they do speak english. And there was Nu, a real IT specialist, always helpfull when wifi problems. Centara Villas is a real typical wooden small Thai resort build on a hill/cliff consisting of separate large beautiful villas with a spacious balcony overlooking the Andaman sea , this in the middle of an exotic green vegetation. Mosquito tablets available. No insight view in the villa , you have your privacy. Don't worry , you don't have to climb, there are mini shuttles to take you around in the resort, with 2 beautiful not to too large swimming pools and a bar/resto. Happy hour twice a day ! Beach is reachable via a path downstairs, (a 5 min walk) where we used also use the facilities of sister hotel.
Room service twice a day, each day after our return late afternoon we found a spotless clean room ( our room was often a mess, sorry for this) and a nice plate of exotic fruit .Free shuttle to Patong (only 10 min) , fox a late return you have to pay the funny ride in a tuktuk ( a to do) or taxi 300 bath. They also have their own taxi service.
Wifi for a small fee. Delicious fish buffet and Thai food (we opted for the haute cuisine salads ) in the romantic Cliff restaurant overlooking the bay , so nice at night ! (also in the morning for breakfast)
Spa has an amazing view overlooking the sea, you feel zen. Excursions can also be booked at the hotel. Most positive: The location and typical style of the hotel, an exotic paradise, still difficult to find in Phuket, though very near to Patong for shopping, resto's and night life and not to forget the very friendly helpful staff, always smiling ! This all will appear as too good, but is only what we experienced during our stay. Thank you for the lovely holiday and we can only recommend this exclusive resort as outstanding and exclusive !

It's not often that you can say that there is virtually no negatives in an establishment or its staff. The one and only drawback is the steps, but they do run a golf buggy shuttle from most villas to the office, restaurant, entrance areas. The location with its views are outstanding and this from all areas, villas, restaurants, reception, pool etc. THE STAFF ARE THE MOST AMAZING that we have experienced in any hotel that we have stayed at. Food at breakfast was very good and the restaurants menus and dishes were very good. We'll be heading back there on our next visit to Phuket.

I have just returned from Thailand and the Centara villas with my boyfriend and another couple. I must say we were a littel dubious about this accommodation before we went due to other reviews on here, but we need not have been. The place was beautiful, the staff so kind and friendly and the hotel was just perfect.
We stayed in a spa villa for 4 nights and then upgraded to a pool villa for 4 nights, both were fantastic! The privacy in the pool villa was great, the rooms were spotlessly clean, the spa villas were fun. The mini bar in the rooms were great and very reasonable. The tuk tuk was fun (if a little scary going round the bends) and we never had towait longer than 5/10 mins for it.
There were a lot of reviews on here about the location and too many steps etc. This hotel is set in a cliff side!!!!! yes it is steep to get around if you chose not to get picked up by the tuk tuk, but it makes up for it with the amazing views that you get!! If you are not mobile, or have young kids then dont go here.....dont go and then moan about it!!!
Will definitely be back next year, thank you centara villas!!!!! xx

Room Tip: Spa villas were great fun, pool villas felt very exclusive!

"GOOD MORNING" is what we got from the head waiter (I cant remeber his name) at the Cliff restaurant every night whe had dinner there. Great service, friendly staff excellent housekeeping is what you can expect when visiting CVP. I said to my wife that I whish I can pack all of them in my suitcase and take them home with me, they are truely THE reflection of "the Land of Smiles" Their food is excellent and they offer a variety of buffets to choose from. The way they offer the "Happy hour" at the pool deck, pool bar and Cliff restaurant means you are bound to have one every day - I just called it the "happier" hour.

The inhouse travel agency is a bonus and you can book anything from the Simon caberet to Nightmarket visits to Bangla Boxing excursions with them. What impressed me was that they offer you a variety of opperators to choose from. e.g you can choose a day trip to Phang Nga islands, canoes and Island visits according to what you want to spend from 2500Bt to 5000Bt.

The daily free shuttles they offer is worth it. Already in touch with my travel agent becuase I am going back.

Room Tip: We staid closer to the lobby and Restaurant, as CVP is on a hill the choice is up to you, if you are...

we stayed here for 7 nights in April 2012 (it was recommended by travel bag) and it lived up to all our expectations.The accommodation was very private and spacious,well decorated and clean.The breakfast and service were exceptional.The location is lovely.this is not your usual tower block hotel. The views are amazing,there are 2 swimming pools-there always seemed to be sun beds available.Ok the hotel is built into the hillside so there are steps and hills to negotiate but this is what gives you the views and privacy,and theres always the option of the shuttle car which is handy when you are tired or it is raining.This a picturesque quiet resort with a free shuttle to Patong and Karon, and a 5 minute coastal path walk to Karon beach

Room Tip: high up for views and easy access to restaurant and bar,low down for pool
