Expensive, but you have to pay for the pleasure: a review of Thailand

Olga, a reader of Tonkosti.ru, cannot afford to fly abroad on vacation often. “We fly once every two years, not more often. We try to carefully choose hotels, we do not save money, we choose exotic destinations: the Maldives, the Seychelles, Mexico. I have never been to Turkey or Egypt, it's just a pity to spend money on such destinations. We thought to go to the Maldives for the New Year, but the prices were very high. January 2 came to the agency and we were offered Thailand. I didn’t consider this direction, but the manager showed the Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket 5 * hotel – and I fell in love, ”says the tourist.1/1

I must say right away that the hotel is not a budget hotel

We paid 367 thousand for 10 days for two at breakfast. The hotel is located in Phuket, Karon Beach, just 38 km from the airport.

I'll tell you right away about the cons: if you are planning a vacation with children, you are not here, there is nothing for children here. Quiet hotel for couples. Another minus is that it is a bit outdated, you can see the shabby furniture in the common areas, the “standard” rooms also look tired. In order not to spoil the impression, we decided to pay extra for the “deluxe”, everything is fine there.

We only took breakfast

You can go broke on drinks and food at the hotel, so if possible, take all-inclusive: the food here is super (so we haven’t tried everything). Well, or you need to plan to have dinner in the city, and for lunch you can buy fruit, as we did.

The hotel asks for a deposit, approximately 500 USD, it is returned, you can still increase the amount of the deposit (non-refundable part) at will, and then you will be credited with additional bonuses that you can spend in the spa or restaurants on site. I don’t advise you to take a room with a pool: a waste of money, it’s beautiful only in the photo, in fact the pool is small and very cold. If you pay extra, then for the view and the jacuzzi on the balcony, this room is just super! 1/1
