Centara Hotels & Resorts has announced that its second property at Ao Nang in Krabi will soft-open in September.
Centara Anda Dhevi Resort & Spa Krabi is a newly-built, four-star property situated in extensive grounds and spread across five low-rise buildings.
Just 100 meters away from the sands of Nopparat Thara Beach, the resort is also conveniently close to the center of Ao Nang, famous for its tourist sites, and shopping and entertainment facilities.
Centara signed a management contract for the property with Anda Dhevi Resort and Spa Company Limited in January 2011.
“We are very proud that Dr. Pornsak Tantapakul, owner of Anda Dhevi Resort and Spa Company Limited, has awarded us the management contract for this beautiful property, which represents an investment of 350 Million Baht,” said Suthikiati Chirathivat, Chairman of the Executive Board, Central Plaza Hotel Public Company Limited, “This is a significant move in our strategic growth program of acquiring high-quality new properties through management contracts.”
Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts, said that although the new resort is situated near to the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi, located at Pai Plong Bay, the two are not competing for the same market.
“The two resorts, in fact, represent two different segments of the tourism market, and consequently they complement each other,” he said, “We now cover a broader range in the increasingly popular resort of Krabi, and this makes us stronger in Southern Thailand.”
The resort offers 135 rooms and suites, each room offering a furnished balcony or terrace and a spacious private bathroom.
The accommodation consists of 72 Deluxe Garden View rooms ranging in size from 36 to 40 sqm, 50 Deluxe Pool View rooms at 42 sqm, one Family Suite Pool View at 83 sqm, 11 Deluxe Pool Access rooms at 46 sqm, and one Honeymoon Suite Pool Access room at 92 sqm.
The Palm court is the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant serving Thai and international cuisines, and the Lobby Bar and Lounge will offer a wide selection of hot and cold snacks, cocktails, fine wines and spirits, coffees, teas, and chilled juices.
Leisure facilities include a 43-meter-long swimming pool with waterslides and Coco’s swim-up bar, a children’s pool, Camp Safari kids’ club, fitness center and a SPA Cenvaree.
The resort is designed with 2 meeting and events rooms both fully equipped as convention rooms. The first room is suitable to accommodate up to 200 guests and the second room up to 80 people.
Krabi International Airport is only 40 minutes away while guests can also easily reach Ao Nang Pier, from where boats go to nearby islands including Phi Phi and Phuket.
