"Located on Phuket’s magnificent west coast, the Centara Grand West Sands Resort & Villas boasts 500 metres of pristine beach frontage."
Although this part of Phuket is renowned for its extensive areas of natural and undisturbed beauty, the resort is only 15 minutes away from Phuket International Airport.
With a gigantic water park for guests of all ages and spacious accommodation ranging from Deluxe Rooms and family residences to Penthouses and Luxury Villas that have their own private pools, this eco-friendly resort takes the family-friendly concept to a whole new level. The complex spans over 47 acres of land and opens on to Mai Khao Beach, the longest and quietest stretch of beach on this side of Phuket.
Comfortable living areas and abundant natural light form the theme of the accommodation, with restful colours for the décor and huge windows framing views of the gardens, water park or ocean. Deluxe rooms, suites with the choice of one or two bedrooms, family room with bunk beds for younger guests, and penthouses, each with their own private pool, provide a great diversity of accommodation styles, while pool villas are set in the gardens or on the oceanfront. Many rooms, suites and villas provide self-catering facilities. Three- and four-bedroom penthouses and villas are exclusively equipped with a majestic pool of up to 40 square metres and are ideal for families and groups who long for the ultimate resort experience. Penthouses and villas also boast generous living areas ranging from 291 to 495 square metres including an airy living and dining area with great views and complete with a fully equipped kitchen.
Splash Jungle Water Park is Phuket’s biggest and best water park, full of excitement and with something for everyone. Take a ride on any of the 12 waterslides, including the huge and exhilarating Boomerango or the Super Bowl slide or splash in the 335-metres lazy river. The little ones can splash, play and slide in their own children’ pool, while the grown-ups can indulge at the SPA Cenvaree offering therapeutic massages and traditional aromatherapy. The large oval-shaped beach infinity pool overlooks the Andaman Sea and has a separate children’s pool and another swimming pool with separate Jacuzzi and jet streams is located amongst the guestrooms. Youngsters will enjoy the kids’ club and daily activity programmes including an indoor Camp Safari for ages 4 to 9 years and a dedicated oversized water play area, while those in the 10 years and upwards age range have a separate E-Zone for games. Activities for grown-ups include scuba diving lessons at the main pool, water basketball, water polo, Yoga classes, aerobic classes, Thai boxing, bike tours as well as beach volleyball and beach football.

Phuket has a tropical monsoonal climate, with the rainy season beginning earlier than in northern Thailand, starting in May but generally ending late October. Apart from the period between mid-September and mid-October when the rain falls steadily, most monsoon days are rain-free save for showers in the afternoon. The best months to visit Phuket are from November to February, when temperatures are comfortable, skies are clear and blue and humidity is low. This is the high season, with the majority of visitors coming over for the Christmas and New Year period.
