Classic colonial charm meets contemporary elegance at Centara Reserve Samui
Centara Reserve Samui is the first of the emerging Centara Reserve luxurious resorts. Some might recall the former Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui, with its distinguished white walls and colonial pillars. They still remain, but walking in now takes the resort to a different level. It is bright, fresh, and spacious with the right combination of natural light and romantic moods. It has been beautifully enhanced, retaining the charm of the original resort but now with superb accommodation and on-site facilities.
The location is superb, at the quieter southern end of Chaweng Beach on the east coast, so you have soft sand, generally turquoise sea and a selection of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk or a short taxi ride. The airport is 15 minutes drive away.

Chic is delighted to have been chosen as one of the partners for this exciting new brand. For those who recall Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui, the location and extensive gardens are the same, but everything else is almost unrecognisable. It is like moving from a good mid-range to a deluxe with a wonderfully cool ambience on so many different levels.
The attraction will be to singles, couples and multigenerational families.
Koh Samui can be easily circumnavigated on a full-day tour, allowing for relaxing time. The north and the east coasts have seen the most development; the south and west coasts remain totally authentic. Within the island, you have small fishing villages, waterfalls, and ethical elephant camps. On the north shore, you have Fisherman’s Village restaurant area which is worth visiting especially in the evening. It’s about a 30-drive. The resort will be delighted to assist you with recommended taxis. We do not recommend moped/motorbike hire. Day tours to the neighbouring Koh Phangan or Koh Tao can also be easily arranged.
Samui tends to be at its best weather-wise Mid March through to September when the days are usually bright, hot & sunny and the seas calm. October to February can see more rain, usually in short sharp bursts, and some sea swells.

More hotels in this location
Samui – Good, highly innovative hotels and some excellent dining options. The majority of the development has occurred in the north-west area of the island and the more expansive beaches.
Phangan, Koh Tao and Khanom are much less developed, it is like going back 30 years in time, with just a handful of hotels, and offers a true sense of adventure.
