Nearby Attractions

The Centara Grand is self-contained and largely cut off from the outside world, but it’s only a short boat ride to the popular resort town of Ao Nang, where you’ll find plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping.

Other activities on offer in the region include rock climbing at Railay Bay and diving in the Andaman Sea, where the clear waters reveal colourful coral and the occasional whale shark.

You can also take a day trip to one of the spectacular islands. Koh Phi Phi is a popular choice, while Phang Nga Bay is home to the famous James Bond Island and the beautiful Koh Yao Noi.


The Centara Grand is situated on a private bay surrounded by national park, and you might find yourself sharing the beach with the cute but mischievous resident monkeys. There are 192 rooms and villas decorated in a modern Thai style, all with a private balcony or terrace. In-room amenities include free WiFi, flatscreen TV, safe, mini bar and tea/coffee-making facilities, and some rooms also have an outdoor Jacuzzi. Upgrade to one of the luxurious villas for your own private plunge pool.

There are two swimming pools with a separate pool for kids, plus a fitness centre, kids’ club and a whole range of watersports, including PADI diving, sailing and paddleboarding. If you feel like exploring on land you can follow the ‘monkey trail’ to the neighbouring village.

Spa Cenvaree has 7 treatment suites and offers an appealing range of massages and therapies, including reflexology, Thai massage and Ayurveda. For a different type of immersive experience head to the underwater-themed Deep Blu Bar & Lounge, with cocktails and chilled tunes till late.
