Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 18 May 2010

Thailand-based Centara Hotels & Resorts is to expand its portfolio of hotels in Phuket with the opening of the Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket in October 2010.

 The new hotel is one of the few at Karon to be set directly at the edge of the sand, most of the existing properties being on the other side of the busy 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 Gerd Steeb, president of Centara Hotels & Resorts. 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 ... This ensures that adults and families each have their own facilities for relaxing, and to make sure that families and their youngsters enjoy the resort to the fullest, our signature brand Kids Club will provide supervised activities both for the very young and for teenagers.

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 sqm 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.

Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket is fully equipped for meetings. The Phuket Grand Ballroom has a capacity of 820 persons seated theatre-style, with 576 sqm of space that is divisible into two equal parts. There is a pre-function area of 240 sqm as well as two breakout rooms that can accommodate 50 persons each, seated classroom style.
