Bringing exclusive and luxurious Thai hospitality to Egypt holidays , the prestigious and enxclusive Thailand-based brand of Centara Hotels & Resorts has just opened their first ever five-star luxury resort in Sokhna, Egypt.

The brand new Centara Grand Beach Resort & Spa Sokhna was initially scheduled to open by late April and is now ready to welcome visitors on Egypt holidays and shower them with their legendary and exclusive Thai service and warm hospitality.
