THE FINAL DEVELOPMENT PHASE of the new Centara Hotel & Convention Centre Khon Kaen has been completed with the hotel now fully placed to cater for the increasing levels of tourist and business travel to the Isaan region, and the substantially increasing demands of the MICE sector.
The hotel is the largest events venue in Khon Kaen, and is located a short distance from Central Plaza, the biggest shopping and lifestyle complex in the city.
All 196 rooms and suites have a modern Isaan design theme, coupled with stylish international facilities, including extra kitchen facilities for the convention centre to add flexibility in catering for large or multiple events. Also, new audio-visual technology has been added to the events rooms, the parking area has been extended to hold 300 cars, and the building exteriors and landscaping have been given a stylish new finish.
“We are very happy indeed to announce completion of this final phase, and our hotel is now ready to shine as a regional events venue and to welcome independent travelers and groups alike with our warm Isaan hospitality,” says General Manager Patrick Tan.
Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts says that Khon Kaen’s importance as a tourism and commercial hub has been growing in recent years.
“Centara Hotel & Convention Centre Khon Kaen is a prime venue in northeast Thailand for tourists and for the business sector, and already plays host to a very wide variety of functions in the public and private sectors,” he says.
“Completion of all the facilities consolidates the hotel as the premier meetings and events venue in the region, and sends a strong message to the industry that Centara’s focus is continually on customer satisfaction.”
Restaurants include an international all-day outlet named the Globe, two Chinese restaurants, a restaurant serving Asian and Isaan dishes, a London-style pub, and a karaoke lounge.
The hotel convention hall can hold up to 2,000 attendees seated theatre-style and is divisible into three smaller sections. The hall opens to the outdoor swimming pool, making it an ideal venue for both conferences and outdoor receptions. The Prachasamosorn Ballroom can hold up to 700 for cocktails.
The hotel is 15 minutes from Khon Kaen International Airport.
