The 141-key Centara Beach Resort & Spa Phu Quo, Vietnam to open in November and 282-key Centra Maris Resort Jomtien, Thailand to open in December


Bangkok, Thailand - Sept. 28, 2015 - Centara Hotels & Resorts is pleased to introduce two new properties that will be opening before the end of the year.  These two properties - Centara Beach Resort & Spa Phu Quo, Vietnam and Centra Maris Resort Jomtien, Thailand - will round out Centara's portfolio with 42 properties in operation around the globe.  

Currently scheduled to open in November 2015, Centara Beach Resort & Spa Phu Quoc is the latest property in Vietnam acquired by Centara Hotels & Resorts after a management contract was signed with the owners, Binh Le Xuan Ltd. Companies and Commercial Services. The resort is Centara's second property on the Phu Quoc Island, third property in Vietnam, and is viewed as a desirable complement to Centara's Vietnam portfolio.

Chris Bailey, COO of Centara Hotels & Resorts, commented that "the new resort is a highly desirable acquisition for us, as it has a different style and product focus than our other properties in the region, enabling us to expand our appeal to a wider cross-section of the market."

Centara Beach Resort & Spa Phu Quoc is located on the main coast of Phu Quoc Island, in Vietnam's Kien Giang Province, and is a ten minute drive from Phu Quoc International Airport.

The resort will have 141 rooms in total, and guests will have access to the full range of facilities expected by modern resort guests, including technology-serviced meeting facilities, an all-day restaurant, a pool complete with swim-up pool bar, a fitness center and full wireless connectivity throughout the property. The resort will also contain a Kid's Club facilities, and a new SPA Cenvaree, a branch of Centara's award-winning luxury spa.

Centra Maris Resort Jomtien is scheduled to open mid-December 2015.  Just outside of Bangkok, Jomtien Beach has a new perspective from that of its nearby neighbor, Pattaya.  There has been major investment in the area that provides many attractive elements.  Centara's new property will offer a full range of services that will allow for every guest to enjoy their stay.  

The new property features 282 rooms, suites and residences in total, all designed with a fresh modern style, incorporating clean lines, light wood furnishings and splashes of vivid colors.  All offer free WiFi, and comfortable living spaces of up to 60 square meters with the option of garden or ocean views. Pool suites and family residences come complete with a private garden and plunge pool, while each residence can sleep up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 3 children.

Family-friendly facilities are a specialty of Centara and this new resort property is no exception. Children will enjoy an environment unlike anything else, with a whimsically themed Kids' Club-- Camp Safari for the youngest ones and a teenage-friendly E-Zone where there are engaging activities to keep kids of all ages entertained.  Other facilities worth exploring are the lagoon-shaped swimming pool complete with Jacuzzis as well as a children's water play area and water slide. 

For adults, the 'Cense by SPA Cenvaree' is a perfect escape.  Step into a world of tranquility and pampering with an extensive spa facility that is set over two floors and takes guests on a journey through the healing traditions of Southeast Asia.  Guests can choose from a broad range of therapies, including massage, body treatment and facials that feature Thai herbs, floral extracts and aromatic oils.  A fitness center also allows for further rejuvenation for the body and mind. 

Dining options include an all-day dining venue serving varied buffet-style breakfasts, and an international and Thai a la carte menu for lunch and dinner with indoor and outdoor dining options. The resort's poolside restaurant offers an eclectic selection of quality food & drink, serving everything from fresh seafood and fish to chops and steaks, and perfect burgers with modern twists. In-room dining is available throughout the day, and the swim-up pool bar is another appealing feature for adult guests.

The overall area of Jomtien is getting a face lift, making it much more attractive to tourists with new sidewalks, building sports, recreation and water facilities, adding greenery and playgrounds as well as a new police substation.  All of these improvements will guarantee additional benefits to the area and a safer experience.

Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels & Resorts, said, "He is proud to be overseeing the ongoing expansion of the Centara brand.  We anticipate great things of Vietnam tourism in the years to come and continue to see the strength in the tourism industry in Thailand."
