CENTARA HOTELS & RESORTS has signed Hotel Management Agreements (HMAs) for one resort in Khao Yai, Thailand, and two resorts in Vang Vieng, Laos, adding 304 keys to Centara’s group portfolio.
Roukh Kiri Khao Yai Hotel is nestled within the lush and mountainous landscape Khao Yai National Park, one of Thailand’s largest national parks just three hours from Bangkok.
Featuring 12 contemporary barn-styled villas perched on a hill overlooking the valley, the intimate, luxurious resort combines contemporary living with the beautiful simplicity of the great outdoors. This is Centara’s first hotel in the beautiful Khao Yai destination.
In Laos, Centra by Centara Riverside Resort Vang Vieng (formerly Thavisouk Island Hotel) and Thavisouk Riverside Resort & Spa Vang Vieng, Centara Boutique Collection (formerly Thavisouk Riverside Hotel) are located on the opposite sides of the Nam Song River, connected by a private bridge linking the two properties.
The two rebranded riverside properties are expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2021, following the completion of significant refurbishment programs.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Thavisouk, and to draw on their wealth of local expertise and hospitality experience for Centara’s expansion in this beautiful country. Our values of treating our guests and employees like family are closely aligned, and I am excited to offer new destinations for guests who seek authentic travel experiences surrounded by nature,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels and Resorts.
“Signing this management agreement with Centara Hotels & Resorts represents a milestone for us. Since we started in 2002, we have grown alongside the destination to become the largest hotel operator in the city, and we are excited to leverage Centara’s international reach to present Vang Vieng to a wider audience,” said Bounsong Khammang, owner of Thavisouk Hotels & Resorts.
The HMA signings of Centra by Centara Riverside Resort Vang Vieng; Thavisouk Riverside Resort & Spa Vang Vieng, Centara Boutique Collection; and Roukh Kiri Khaoyai Hotel, Centara Boutique Collection, are the latest in the Centara Hotels and Resorts group’s steady path of growth, and follows the group’s seven other management deals signed in 2020 for resorts in Myanmar, Oman, Vietnam and Thailand.
