Centara Club access will be available to all but the Deluxe Lanna room type, offering Centaras signature Club service of five daily food presentations and evening cocktail reception.

The all-day dining restaurant is housed inside a traditional Thai house in the garden and will offer international and Thai cuisine in a Lanna setting. There will be 120 seats, with indoor and outdoor dining optional. The lounge area will serve refreshments and have seats for 30 people, and a poolside bar service will be available during the daytime. In-room dining will be available 24 hours daily with a selection of international and Asian favourites.

Recreation facilities include the Royal Spa Cenvaree, a fitness club, a 300 sqm swimming pool with 60 sun beds, a library and an internet lounge.
