Centara Expands to Laos

Centara Hotels & Resorts will manage its first hotel in Laos in 2017 with the opening of the five-star Centara Grand Hotel in Vientiane.

Located in the downtown district of the Laotian capital, the hotel will adopt a French colonial design theme.
Centara will manage the new-build property under a management contract.

The 200-room hotel, owned by Simuong Group, will cost Bt1.5 billion (US$46.2 million) to build.

“We are very proud of the fact that our top-tier Grand brand is expanding,” said Centara Hotels & Resorts chief executive officer Thirayuth Chirathivat.

“The brand is carrying our unique style of Thai hospitality into new markets, backed by the confidence of international investors.”

“Vientiane is an exciting destination for us, and it joins our Grand branded properties in Maldives, Vietnam, Bali, Mauritius, Shanghai, Addis Ababa, Doha and, of course, Thailand.”

Including the Vientiane property, Centara has a total of 20 Grand hotels.

“Laos is a natural market for us, being a direct neighbour of Thailand, and we are delighted that we shall have a five-star hotel in the centre of downtown Vientiane,” said Centara Hotels & Resorts senior vice president for sales and marketing Chris Bailey.

“This will add to our marketing strength in Southeast Asia, providing an exciting new destination for our large customer base around the world and adding to the opportunities for our business partners.”

Centara Grand Hotel Vientiane will have 200 rooms and feature Centara’s five-star facilities, including two restaurants, a Spa Cenvaree, a Kids’ Club, swimming pool, fitness centre and meeting facilities, including a ballroom.
