“We are very happy to announce that Centara Pattaya Hotel has opened,” says Suthikiati Chirathivat, Chairman of the Executive Board, Central Plaza Hotel Public Company Limited. “This is another very significant step in our strategic development of the Pattaya market.
“The hotel is part of our core Centara brand, and complements our existing Grand and Boutique Collection brands in Pattaya. We therefore are widening our appeal in the market. Pattaya, we believe, has enormous potential for growth.”
Centara Pattaya Hotel general manager Austin Robinson says that the location is ideal for independent travellers, couples and families, and that the facilities of the hotel are designed to match the requirements of these different categories of guest.
“Becoming the latest member of the Centara family is very exciting for us, and my team and myself look forward to welcoming and serving our guests,” he said.
