CENTARA Hotels & Resorts will open two new hotels in Bangkok in the third quarter, which will operate under the group’s Centra four-star value brand.
Centra Government Complex Hotel & Convention Centre Chaeng Watthana and Centra Central Station Bangkok will be the third and fourth Centra-branded properties to open after Centra Ashlee Hotel Patong, which opened in Phuket last year, and Centra Taum Seminyak Bali, which opened in December.
Forming part of the government facility along Chaeng Watthana Road, the Centra Government Complex Hotel will target guests who have dealings with the various government bodies. The hotel will offer 192 superior rooms and 12 junior suites, a restaurant serving international and Thai cuisine, and a coffee corner in the lobby providing complimentary WiFi access.
The hotel’s convention centre will offer 27,293 m2 of event space, including 24 function rooms with capacity for up to 2,000 pax. Meeting rooms will range in size from 212-1,850m2, while the Ratthaprasasahabhakti building where the government offices are located will offer another 17 function rooms.
The second property, Centra Central Station Bangkok, will offer 150 rooms and suites on the periphery of Chinatown – a short walk from the Hua Lampong Railway and subway station.
The hotel will feature a restaurant serving international and Thai cuisine, and another serving Chinese dishes. Leisure facilities include a Spa Cenvaree, a fitness centre with separate sauna and steam rooms, and five function rooms with large pre-function areas.
