Centara Grand Resort & Spa Pattaya Set to Open in Late 2013

Coming up in the fourth quarter of this year, Centara Grand Hotels & Resorts will open a new high-end property in one of Thailand’s most accessible resort towns.

The Centara Grand Resort & Spa Pattaya is located in the center of Pratumnak Hill’s residential area and just a few minutes’ walk from the beach.  Pattaya itself is about an hour’s drive from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Decorated in a subtle “underwater world” theme, a nod to the nearby ocean, resort designers took special care to include a number of comforts and conveniences for families.   More than a third of guestrooms offer two double beds, a simple solution for mom, dad and kids.  Even better are the family residences that boast a children’s’ area with bunk beds and a separate tub and shower.  All rooms include flat-screen televisions and WIFI access.  Many have views of the ocean through large windows.
