CENTARA HOTELS & RESORTS will be opening its fourth property in Pattaya in March 2013 – the five-star Centara Grand Resort & Spa Pattaya – located at Phratamnak Hill on the east side of the city.
Centara will be managing the hotel under a contract signed in February 2010 with the Cliff Residence Company Limited, a division of the Tulip Group.
The newly built nine-storey hotel will have 161 rooms and suites and is being developed under a budget of 1.1 billion BHT including land.
“We have worked very closely with the Tulip Group to bring this project to fruition, and we are delighted to be announcing the opening date,” says Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels & Resorts. “The location is superb – in the centre of the exclusive Phratamnak district and within two minutes of Phratamnak Beach, and the design of the hotel is that of understated club-like luxury. We have enormous confidence in the future of Pattaya, and regard this property as an important strategic step in our growth plans.”
The hotel will have an all-day restaurant named Oceana serving international and Thai cuisines and featuring a huge aquarium as its design theme. Other outlets include a rooftop restaurant named Altezza that will serve Italian cuisine and comfort food against a setting of ocean and city; a deli called Crumbs; and a French-inspired bistro.
There will also be a Spa Cenvaree, a fitness centre and a swimming pool.
“This property is completely different in style and locality to our other three hotels in Pattaya, and gives us a very strong addition to our marketing options,” says Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts. “We can now offer a five-star hotel in the very desirable resort area of Phratamnak Hill, just 90 metres from the beach, and with its air of discreet luxury and high quality restaurants we feel the hotel will appeal to travellers who rate style and individuality as being an essential part of their travel experience.”
“The events facilities will be especially attractive for companies with business interests in the region, and for local and Bangkok residents organising private parties and receptions,” he says.
