CENTARA Hotels & Resorts will make its maiden foray into Laos with the opening of Centara Grand Hotel Vientiane in 2017.
Located in the downtown district of Vientiane, the hotel is owned by Simuong Group and will be developed under an investment of 1.5 billion baht (US$46.2 million).
The 200-room Grand Centara Hotel Vientiane will sport French colonial design and feature two restaurants, a Spa Cenvaree, kids club, swimming pool, fitness centre and meeting facilities, including a ballroom.
Said Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales & marketing of Centara Hotels & Resorts: “Laos is a natural market for us, being a direct neighbour of Thailand, and we are delighted that we shall have a five-star hotel in the centre of downtown Vientiane.”
“This will add to our marketing strength in South-east Asia, providing an exciting new destination for our large customer base around the world and adding to the opportunities for our business partners.”
