This is the fourth property in Pattaya for Centara Hotels & Resorts, and is a five-star hotel located at Phratamnak Hill on the east side of the city.
The nine-storey property will have 161 rooms and suites and is being developed under a budget of 1.1 billion baht including land.
The location is in the center of the exclusive Phratamnak district and within just two minutes of Phratamnak Beach, with the design of the hotel being that of understated club-like luxury.
The hotel will have an all-day restaurant named Oceana serving international and Thai cuisines and featuring a huge aquarium as its design theme. Other outlets include a rooftop restaurant named Altezza that will serve Italian cuisine and comfort food against a spectacular setting of ocean and city, a casual outlet named Deli-Cafe, and a French-inspired bistro.
There will be a Spa Cenvaree, a fitness center, and a swimming pool.
With its location in the very desirable resort area of Phratamnak Hill, just 90 meters from the beach, its air of discrete luxury and its very high-quality restaurants, Centara Grand Resort & Spa Pattaya will appeal to travelers who rate style and individuality as being an essential part of their travel experience.
The hotel will also be aimed at the MICE sector, with its Excel meetings facility that offers two function rooms and an adjacent lounge. The events facilities will be especially attractive for companies with business interests in the region, and for local and Bangkok residents organizing private parties and receptions.
