Centara Hotel Hat Yai
Centara Hotel Hat Yai is a premium hotel in downtown Hat Yai just opposite Lee Gardens. For this trip during August 2022, I managed to snag a very good 40% off rate under the Centara Travel Unlocked Flash Sale, so I finally had the opportunity to try out Centara Hotel Hat Yai after many years of just waking past it.
Check-in at Centara Hotel Hat Yai is at Level 6. There was a short line in front of the front desk as I had arrived just at check-in time at 3pm.
Complimentary small glasses of welcome drink are available at a dispenser at the lobby.
There is a sSkylight Lounge which serves drinks and snacks between the lobby and the lifts.

Towels are provided on the towel rack.
The shower and bathtub is integrated.
A side bottle of soap is placed by the bathtub for what I think creates a foam bath. I didn’t try it out though.
