Centara Hotels & Resorts is excited to announce the addition of five distinctive properties to its diverse portfolio, strengthening its footprint in Thailand and Vietnam and setting the stage for strategic growth initiatives both domestically and overseas.

"Centara Hotels & Resorts is off to a dynamic start in 2024, with the unveiling of several new properties that exemplify our commitment to strategic growth and delivering exceptional experiences. As we expand our footprint in Thailand, Vietnam, and beyond, we are excited about the future and the expansive opportunities that lie ahead for brands," stated Michael Henssler, COO of Centara Hotels & Resorts.

Centara has signed a strategic Hotel Management Agreement (HMA) with Phi Phi Paradise Company Limited for its Villa 360 property. Set to reopen as Centara Villas Phi Phi Island in October 2024, this stunning resort offers 40 villas ranging from 56 to 133.5 square metres, an all-day dining restaurant, a sunset sky bar, an outdoor swimming pool, and pool bar, spa, fitness centre, and a convenient onsite mini shop.

At the end of 2023, Centara also signed a Hotel Management Agreement (HMA) with Kornsiri Hospitality Management Limited Partnership for Tiva Ao Makham Resort Phuket, a greenfield project set to redefine health-focused travel with exceptional facilities including yoga, cycling, and a Pilates reformer studio, as well as a sauna, steam room, and onsen available to all guests. Offering 68 rooms along Phuket’s southeastern coast, this will be Centara’s 11th hotel in Phuket and the newest edition to its Boutique Collection.

Looking towards Vietnam, Centara is set to open two exceptional properties in Vung Tau City, a popular destination along the southern coast in Q1 of 2027. The 261-key Centara Life Vung Tau promises exceptional stays that are flexible and full of daily delights, elevating the essentials across an all-day dining restaurant, modern meeting rooms, swimming pools, a pool bar, a fully equipped fitness centre, spa, and kids club. Meanwhile, Centara Residence Dio Dua will offer 536 rooms, a warm reception, a fitness centre, a swimming pool, and a dedicated kids club.

Adding to the allure of Van Don as a premier tourist destination in northern Vietnam, Crystal Holidays Harbor Van Don will be opening a second tower in Q2 2025 as part of its plan to develop 5 hotel and resort apartment buildings within its 5-star international standard resort and entertainment complex, Complementing the existing Centara-branded Tower A, which boasts a dedicated purpose-built convention centre, Tower B comprises 496 rooms along with a variety of dining options, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, and inviting swimming pools.

These new additions not only mark a promising start to the year but also exemplify Centara Hotels & Resorts' dedication to providing unique experiences characterised by world-class hospitality, exceptional service, and the warmth of Thai family values in stunning destinations across the globe.

"We are proud to welcome these exceptional properties onto our portfolio as we embark on this exciting phase of expansion. These new signings represent significant milestones for Centara Hotels & Resorts, setting the stage to further pursue unique opportunities and partnerships around the world while fuelling our momentum to shape the future of hospitality," said Andrew Langston, Senior Vice President - Business Development of Centara Hotels & Resorts.
