HM09906

CENTARA HOTELS & RESORTS has acquired the management contract for The Blue Marine Resort & Spa Phuket, and will assume management from Jan. 5, 2014. The resort, which is located on the cliff at the northern end of Patong Beach, is owned by Patong Cliff View Co Ltd.

The resort will be temporarily renamed as The Blue Marine Resort & Spa Phuket managed by Centara Hotels & Resorts.

A renovation program has recently been carried out at the resort, completed in October last year, and further renovations will now be undertaken to harmonize the property with Centara’s four-star Hotels & Resorts core brand.

Following completion of this renovation, which is projected for Oct. 5, 2014, the resort will be rebranded as Centara Blue Marine Resort & Spa Phuket.

“We are pleased to announce that The Blue Marine Resort & Spa will be joining the Centara portfolio,” says Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels & Resorts.

“This will bring to nine the total number of Centara properties on the island, and illustrates the enormous confidence we have in Phuket, one of the most famous holiday destinations in the world.”

The Blue Marine Resort & Spa features panoramic views from its cliff-top location, and is backed by a green forest on the hillside.

“We are delighted to be adding a further superb resort property to our Phuket portfolio,” says Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts.

“This means we are entering the New Year with another very powerful addition to our marketing strategy in the south of Thailand, and broadening our appeal to travelers by adding a four-star resort to Patong Beach, one of the island’s premier destinations.”

Accommodation at the resort is a mix of rooms, suites and villas, the latter offering a choice of one and two bedrooms. Each has its own private pool. There are three swimming pools, plus two pools for children. Other leisure facilities include a spa, fitness centre, and a kids’ club.

The restaurants include Blue Pacific, which serves international cuisine, and Tub-Tim, which serves Royal Thai cuisine. Extensive meetings facilities are included, with the Mediterranean Room able to hold a maximum of 180 guests for cocktails, and the Caribbean Ballroom 90 guests.
