Centara Hotels & Resorts’ new upscale resort, Centara Ao Nang Beach Resort & Spa Krabi, has opened its doors as the first branded beachfront property in Ao Nang – a popular tourism gateway in the southern Thailand.
Gracing the more serene part of Ao Nang Beach, just 40 minutes from Krabi International Airport and a short stroll from many local shops, bars and restaurants, the new resort houses 179 rooms and suites, ranging from 39m2 to an expansive to 81m2.
The Pool Access Rooms offer the opportunity to step straight into the resort’s tropical outdoor pool from a private terrace, and some rooms even feature private plunge pools. Meanwhile, fun-filled vacations can be enjoyed in the resort’s Family Residences, which come equipped with bunk beds, kitchenettes and more.
Guests can savour authentic Thai and international cuisine at the all-day restaurant, which features a dramatic glasshouse and an idyllic alfresco terrace, while the Beach Bar specialises in tasty tapas and wood-fired pizzas. The Pool Bar is a great spot for refreshing daytime drinks and the Lobby Lounge is an easy-going space to sit back, relax and catch up on the day’s events.
Key facilities include a lagoon-style pool; Camp Safari, the resort’s kids’ club; SPA Cenvaree; a fitness centre; and a 292m2 meeting room and pre-function area.
“We are delighted to welcome guests to Centara Ao Nang Beach Resort & Spa Krabi, as we introduce a new era of international hospitality to this vibrant destination,” enthused the resort’s general manager, Michael Gaarde-Nielsen. “With our stunning seafront location, choice of accommodation, exceptional amenities and warm Thai service, I am confident that this outstanding new resort will become a firm favourite among couples and families alike.”
The opening of Centara Ao Nang Beach Resort & Spa Krabi extends Centara Hotels & Resorts’ leadership position in Thailand. The group now operates almost 40 hotels and resorts across the country, with many more under development.
Most recently, the 145-key Centara Sonrisa Residences & Suites Sriracha opened on Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard, the 22-villa Maikhao Dream Villa Resort & Spa Phuket has joined the Centara Boutique Collection, and the 142-key Maikhao Hotel Phuket is now managed by Centara. COSI Pattaya Naklua Beach will start welcoming guests this month, follow by COSI Ao Nang Beach in Q3 of 2020 and COSI Vientiane Nam Phu in Q4 of 2020.
