Centara is expanding its already considerable portfolio of hotels in Phuket, with the scheduled opening of the Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket in October 2010.

 The newly-built resort property is one of the few at Karon to be set directly at the edge of the sand, most of the existing properties are located on the other side of the beach road.

Designed in a colonial style with Sino-Portuguese architecture, the five-star resort is Centaras fourth property in Phuket.

We have been greatly encouraged by the success of our Krabi and Pattaya properties, which are proving to have broad appeal for both the adult and the family markets, said Denis Thouvard, General Manager of Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket. Consequently we have incorporated several of the features into our new development, such as a spectacular waterpark that leads onto the beach and which has four separate swimming pools, two of which are for adults only and one of which is a childrens pool.

Accommodation will consist of 262 guestrooms and villas, with 108 Deluxe rooms, 81 Deluxe Spa rooms, 45 Pool Premium rooms, 18 Pool Suites, six One-Bed Pool Villas and four Two-Bed Pool Villas.

All guestrooms have a balcony with sea view, and Deluxe Spa rooms have a Jacuzzi on the balcony.

Guests staying in the Villas, Pool Suites and Pool Premium rooms are entitled to Club privileges, which include the Club Lounge with 200 sqm of indoor and outdoor terrace space and five complementary meal servings per day.

Leisure facilities include a tennis court, a fitness centre with 144 sq m of space, and a SPA Cenvaree offering Vichy treatments, steam rooms, relaxation lounges, manicure and pedicure rooms, and 10 single and double treatment rooms.

Childrens facilities include two playrooms, one for ages four to 10 years and one for 10 to 16 years, and a playground.

The Cove is the all-day dining restaurant, located on the beachfront and featuring open kitchens that serve international and Asian melting-pot cuisines. Seating is for 250, with indoor space and an outdoor covered terrace.
