Centara Villas Samui

Koh Samui - Thailand


Centara Villas Samui is the perfect choice for a relaxed and restful break, located in one of Koh Samui’s quieter corners on a picturesque private beach.

The Thai-style villas spill down a gentle hillside with beautiful ocean views, and many have their own outdoor Jacuzzi or private pool, ideal for a romantic escape.

The tranquil location is a big part of the resort’s appeal, but you’re also within easy reach of Samui’s livelier beaches and the islands of the Gulf of Thailand. Centara’s proactive approach to creating an inclusive environment means this is also one of the most LGBT-friendly resorts in Koh Samui.

Nearby Attractions

Centara Villas Samui is situated on a private stretch of beach near the fishing village of Hua Tanon, and there are a few restaurants and bars within walking distance.

The resort also provides a shuttle service to the main resort areas of Lamai Beach and Chaweng Beach, where you’ll find plenty more places to eat, drink and shop.

Other points of interest include the famous Big Buddha and the traditional Chinese shophouses of Bo Phut’s fisherman’s village, while the unspoilt islands of the Ang Thong National Marine Park offer some amazing snorkelling.


There are 102 villas spread across the hillside, recently refurbished and equipped with satellite TV, WiFi access, mini bar, safe and tea/coffee making facilities. All villas have a private balcony or terrace, and the higher categories also have an outdoor Jacuzzi or private pool, so it’s well worth upgrading.

The beach is not the best on the island for swimming, but there are three pools and a PADI diving and watersports centre. You can also hire a bike if you want to explore, and the resort can arrange fishing and snorkelling excursions by long tail boat.

Other activities on offer include badminton and table tennis, and Spa Cenvaree is the place for a spot of pampering, with a lovely outdoor massage pavilion. Free WiFi is available in the lobby lounge and at the Coral Bar.

Ang Thong National Park

The beautiful Ang Thong National Marine Park is a remote and unspoilt archipelago of 42 islands, well worth a day trip from Koh Samui. The palm-fringed beaches and aquamarine lagoons are Thailand at its most idyllic, and you may recognise the striking Emerald Lake from the Leonardo di Caprio film ‘The Beach’. Activities on offer include snorkelling, diving, kayaking, hiking or simply chilling out on the beach.
