Centara Hotels & Resorts will be pumping 650 million baht (US$21 million) into a major revamp of its flagship property, Centara Grand at CentralWorld Bangkok, beginning this month.
Slated to complete in April 2021, the 57-storey hotel will see a floor-to-ceiling renovation of all 505 guest rooms and suites – an undertaking that will happen two floors at a time to avoid disruption to the guest experience, according to Centara.
The renovation programme, which will be undertaken by Thai design firm P49, will furnish the hotel with fully updated and refreshed guest room interiors, amenities and advanced technologies, said Thirayuth Chirathivat, Centara’s CEO.
Guestrooms, including bathrooms and furniture, will be redesigned and upgraded, with technology and connectivity installed at a standard that reflect the demands of today’s travellers.
The hotel will remain fully operational and carry out business as usual during the renovation period.
