Centara Hotels and Resorts to expand outside of Thailand
Centara Hotels are venturing outside of its collection of Thailand properties and are opening a series of new hotels this year, providing luxury accommodation for traveller on Maldives, India Himalayas and Egypt holidays.
Up until now, Centara Hotels have operated 21 hotels and resorts across Thailand and just three properties overseas, but the end of 2009 saw the start of new management agreements being signed for Maldives resorts, Cairo hotels, and India boutique properties.
The new properties include Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives, Moksha Himalaya Spa Resort, Centara Boutique Collection in India and the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Spa Sokhna which will provide luxury holiday in Egypt.Located just one hour from Egypt's capital Cairo, between Suez and Zafarana, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Spa Sokhna is being seen as one of the most up and coming resorts in the region which will provide travellers with luxury relaxing Egypt holidays.
Chairman of the executive board of Central Plaza Hotel Plc, Suthikiati Chirathivat, said:
"Our move into these three very exciting overseas markets with top quality properties and highly respected local partners is very indicative of the international growth policy for Centara Hotels & Resorts. Each property enhances the Centara brand. At the same time we are very proud to be representing Thailand in these destinations, bringing the gentle touch of Thai hospitality to these destinations."
Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Centara Hotels & Resorts, Chris Bailey, said:
"We have a business plan that sees us creating regional hubs that will allow us to grow in the most efficient and cost effective way. In the Indian Ocean, we want to add more properties in the Maldives but also be present in Sri Lanka, Mauritius and the Seychelles."
As well as providing new hotels and resorts for travellers on Maldives, India, and Egypt holidays, Centara Hotels & Resorts are looking to expand across the United Arab Emirates.
