Centara Hotels & Resorts will greatly expand its presence in the South Thailand province of Krabi following the signing of management contracts for three new properties in the same master development in Klong Muang, Krabi.
The properties are Centara Pelican Bay Resort & Spa Krabi, Centara Pelican Bay Residence & Suites Krabi, and Centara Pelican Bay Villas Krabi. Perry& Son Co, Ltd is developing all three properties.
“Krabi has emerged as a prime tourist destination in recent years and has enormous potential for the future,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO for Centara Hotels & Resorts. “We are very proud to be a leader in developing Krabi for visitors. These three new ventures add to our presence in this beautiful part of Thailand.”
Centara opened its first Krabi resort, Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi, in 2006. A second resort, Centara Anda Dhevi Resort & Spa Krabi, followed in 2012.
The first of the three properties to open will be Centara Pelican Bay Residence & Suites Krabi, which is due to have its soft opening before mid-2014. The property has 92 residential units with one restaurant, a swimming pool, a business corner and a beach club.
Design and planning for Centara Pelican Bay Resort & Spa Krabi will start in the middle of this year, with the soft opening due in the first quarter of 2017. The resort will have 210 rooms. Facilities will include two restaurants and a bar, a swimming pool with snack bar, a Spa Cenvaree, a banquet room, a business center, a fitness center and a kids’ club.
Centara Pelican Bay Villas Krabi will be an all-villa resort. A mock-up villa has been completed, and master planning and construction will take place alongside Centara Pelican Bay Resort& Spa. The opening is expected to be at the same time.
