3. Centara Hotel Hat Yai
“The location is perfect! You get the Walking Street just outside the hotel so nighttime was great with all the festivities going on. Hotel facilities were great too with a gym and swimming pool etc, although it would be good if the water can be warmer - I was shivering when I first got into the pool, and didn’t wana get up coz of the strong breeze. I also like the fact that Centara has its own spa, so massage is always within walking distance. Although more expensive, I feel it is worth the money just for the security - you don’t get shady masseurs asking you about weird stuff as with other massage places. Staff was friendly and always greet me with a smile and greeting. Oh, and the food variety was great!” Imanerak, Singapore
