BANGKOK, April 7, 2014 - Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thailand's leading operator of hotels, is opening five-star luxurious Centara Grand Hotel Vientiane, its first hotel in Laos in 2017.
Located in the downtown district of Vientiane, the Laotian capital, the 200 room hotel will be designed in the French colonial style and feature Centara's five-star facilities, including two restaurants, a Spa Cenvaree, a Kids'Club, swimming pool, fitness center and meeting facilities including a ballroom. Centara will manage the new property under a contract with Simuong Group Co., Ltd, a well-known Laotian company that is developing this 46.2 million project.
"We are very proud our top tier Grand brand continues to expand overseas," said Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels & Resorts. "The brand carries our unique style of Thai hospitality into new markets, backed by the confidence of international investors."
"Vientiane is an exciting destination for us and this hotel joins our Grand branded properties in Maldives, Vietnam, Bali, Mauritius, Shanghai, Addis-Abba, Doha and, of course, Thailand," added Chirathivat. "With the new Vientiane property, Centara now has a total of 20 Grand hotels."
"Laos is a natural market for us, being a direct neighbor of Thailand," said Chris Baily, senior vice president for sales and marketing for Centara Hotels & Resorts. "We are delighted we shall have a presence in the center of downtown Vientiane. It will add to our marketing strength in Southeast Asia, providing an exciting new destination for our large customer base around the world and add opportunities for our business partners."
