Centara to open sixth Pattaya hotel

CENTARA HOTELS & RESORTS will open its sixth hotel in Pattaya with the signing of a management contract to operate the Centara Grand Modus Resort & Spa Pattaya. The hotel is due to open in the third quarter of 2013.

Centara signed the contract with the owning company, Sweet Water Point Company Ltd., on Nov. 14, 2012.

“We have always been very confident indeed in Pattaya as one of Thailand’s prime destinations, and this new property is a strategic signing for us that places our third Pattaya Grand branded hotel in yet another key part of the city,” says Centara Hotels & Resorts CEO Thirayuth Chirathivat.

The hotel is located on Wong Amat Beach at Naklua, next to the famous Sanctuary of Truth, and has its own private beachfront.

“We have Grand branded hotels at North Pattaya, South Pattaya and Jomtien, and the new property at Naklua places us in a very strong marketing position,” says Chris Bailey, senior vice president for Centara Hotels & Resorts.

“The hotel is also one of the very small number in Pattaya that, like our Grand Mirage, is placed directly on the beach. That is an enormous advantage.”

Centara Grand Modus Resort & Spa Pattaya will have a total of 215 rooms. Of these, 80 are Standard category rooms, 10 are Superior category, 20 are Family rooms, 20 are Club category rooms with access to the Club Lounge, 72 are Suites, and 13 are Two-Bedroom Suites.

There will be two restaurants, a Spa Cenvaree, a fitness centre, a Kids’ Club, three swimming pools with a pool bar, a beach club, and meeting and function rooms.

The resort will be family-friendly, with many rooms offering two double beds and with a number of interconnecting rooms. Several room categories offer direct pool access. Over half the rooms offer an ocean view.

The development also includes 300 condominium units, of which 80 have so far been sold, and which are managed by Centara under the request of the individual owners.
