A stay at Centara Reserve Samui is tailored to suit the needs and lifestyle of each individual guest.
The sights, sounds and smells of Koh Samui can soothe any soul. The gentle shush of palm trees and rolling waves are accompanied by a balmy ocean breeze on this Thai island, where idyllic beaches give way to charming villages and verdant jungle – while luxury resorts dot the coast.
Centara Reserve Samui
Set on the shore of Chaweng Beach, Centara Reserve Samui is an elegant resort that allows its guests to create their own stories, from wellness and weddings to cultural immersion and gastronomic discovery. Centara Reserve Samui’s design takes its cues from the coast, creating a space that’s both peaceful and refreshing. The property has four restaurants and two bars that serve a variety of local and international fare, however, Salt Society – with an ocean view, live music and a smorgasbord of seafood delights – is the place to be. With three pools, a contemporary fitness centre, a children’s zone and a recreational green, there’s a space for every type of traveller.
Luxury meets sustainability
Centara Hotels & Resorts has developed a luxury hospitality experience underpinned by sustainability and is the first Asian hospitality group to formally incorporate Global Sustainable Tourism Council-recognised standards. Centara Reserve Samui has banned single-use plastics and has specialised water treatment facilities for on-site bottling of both still and sparkling water. Food waste is transformed into biogas for use in the resort’s kitchens to reduce energy consumption, and guests can harvest ingredients from the garden for their meals to lower their carbon footprint. Furthermore, all treatments at Reserve Spa Cenvaree are delivered using 100 per cent organic and cruelty-free products.
A sensory experience
Reserve Spa Cenvaree enlivens the senses through rituals, music and healing, and visitors can expect customised treatments, steam, sauna, and Jacuzzi facilities. All of this is underpinned by Centara Reserve Samui’s signature ‘Reserve Stories’: Reserve Time, Reserve Space, Reserve Culture and Reserve Touch.
The first allows you to break away from typical notions of hotel timings and live life at your own pace with flexible arrival and departure times, breakfast served upon request at any time, and service in tune with your time zone at The Terrace. Reserve Space ensures your resort experience is customised, from the arrangement of a romantic picnic lunch to transforming your suite’s terrace into an evening cocktail venue. Reserve Culture ensures an authentic connection between you and the island and ranges from culturally enriching Thai welcome rituals to in-room cocktails inspired by your destination.
Finally, Reserve Touch reflects the unique delivery of services and experiences during your stay at Centara Reserve Samui, such as tours or a session with the resident photographer. Guests can opt for a ‘surprise of the day’ service and enjoy unexpected delights such as a private outdoor cinema under the stars, or a secluded spot to enjoy a cocktail overlooking the sea. Whether temples, Thai cuisine or the promise of natural beauty lure you here, Centara Reserve Samui ensures your visit is one of absolute bliss.
