Thai hospitality group Centara Hotels & Resorts has signed management agreements for three new hotels owned by Maikhao Dream Company in Phuket’s Mai Khao Beach area.
Two properties are already in operation and will fall under Centara management from September 11, 2019, while the third property is in development.
The 22-key Maikhao Dream Villa Resort & Spa, which has joined the Centara Boutique Collection as of September 11, 2019, is the only beachfront villa resort on the shores of Mai Khao Beach. The resort offers private villas, 460m2 two-bedroom villas and 650m2 three-bedroom villas.
Each of the 22 villas has its own private pool and whirlpool, outdoor pavilion and kitchen. Resort facilities include a swimming pool, fitness centre, spa, kids’ club, retail shop, library and business lounge, as well as an international all-day dining restaurant and wine cellar. Phuket International Airport is a 20-minute drive from the resort.
Also coming under Centara management from September 11, 2019, is the 142-key Maikhao Hotel, a midscale hotel which opened in early 2019. It offers studios, standard and superior twin rooms, as well as one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites. Facilities include a main swimming pool with separate kids’ pool, fitness centre, meeting rooms, beer garden, karaoke room and an all-day dining restaurant.
The 280-key Centra by Centara Maikhao Resort Phuket is a greenfield development currently under construction. Slated to open in 2024, the resort will feature facilities including a swimming pool, fitness centre, meeting venues, a kids’ club and an all-day dining venue.
The new agreements expand Centara’s presence across the island to a total of nine hotels and resorts, with eight in operation.
