Just an hour from Phuket International airport lies the extensive golden sands of Nang Thong Beach on the Adaman Sea in Southern Thailand, where the Centara Seaview Resort is set against forest-covered mountains close to the Lam Ru National Park and surrounded by manicured gardens and a lagoon.
Accommodation at the Centara Seaview is set in three low-rise buildings, with a choice of rooms from relaxing garden-view guest rooms to pool villas. All the rooms are spacious and decorated in contemporary Thai style, as well as having a private balconies to relax on. Depending on which room you choose, you can have twin or double beds, and a view of the ocean or the garden. Deluxe rooms for example overlook the garden, while the Deluxe Ocean Facing Rooms overlook both the garden ad the ocean. The four Deluxe Villas have a separate living area and an outdoor shower for when you come back from the beach. The 27 Deluxe Pool Villas have their own private plunge pool, large terrace with sun beds and an outdoor shower, while the seven Luxury Pool Villas have all that plus a separate living area, as do the seven Royal Pool Villas. The 12 Family Residences are perfect for the families as these have an area for their children with bunk beds. All the rooms have an array of mod cons.
The Centara Seaview has four swimming pools, one of which is handily located right by the Family Residences, while the main pool is on the beachfront and the othe two are within the Lagoon Wing, where one has an elevated Jacuzzi. So plenty of scope for swimming and sunbathing. The Spa Cenvaree is set in the gardens of the Lagoon wing and offers an array of treatments and therapies. There are two tennis courts and a squash court, a fitness centre, games room with snooker tables, a putting green, and a Kids’ Club to keep the younger guests happy as well as babysitting available on request. And if you can drag yourself away from the hotel, the beach is moments away. The Centara Seaview really is all about relaxing.
A full breakfast buffet is served at the Orchid Restaurant, just moments from the lagoon pool, and you can choose to eat indoors or al fresco. The Talay Thong serves authentic Thai cuisine with locally sourced seafood, surrounded by tropical trees and breathtaking ocean views, while the Rim Nam Pool restaurant & Bar is the perfect spot for an informal lunch or light meal, and the Fun Sport Pub offers drinks, games and light snacks just a few steps from the Garden Pool. Then of course the swim-up Pool Bar serves drinks and cocktails all day long for those who don’t want to get out of the water. The Centara also offers beachfront dining for romantic candlelit dinners under a gauze-draped pagoda with your feet in the sand, and in-room dining if you just want to put your PJs on and relax in front of the TV.
