Thailand's leading hospitality group, Centara Hotels & Resorts, not only showcases the best of the "Land of Smiles" with in well established destinations, but also in Thailand's most exciting emerging locations, such as Rayong.

Nestled on the country's Eastern Seaboard, just 2.5 hours' drive from Bangkok, Rayong is a traditional coastal community that feels blissfully removed from the tourist crowds associated with places like Pattaya and Phuket. At Centara Q Resort Rayong, guests can unwind and explore exquisite tropical surroundings, including unspoiled countryside, pristine beaches and offshore islands, lapped by the crystal waters of the Gulf of Thailand.

Centara Q Resort Rayong is an intimate seafront retreat with just 41 rooms, all of which are bright, spacious and offer stunning sea views from a private balcony or terrace.

Within the hotel, guests can chill out at the beachfront swimming pool, work out in the fitness centre, or pamper themselves at Cense by SPA Cenvaree. There is also an E-Zone for teenagers, mountain bike hire, and a choice of day trips to a sea turtle farm, local markets and more.The inviting pool at Centara Q Resort RanongCentara Q Resort Rayong features a range of dining options, including Queen restaurant, which offers an enticing menu of Asian and international dishes, Quicksand the laid-back beachside bar, and Qube, which serves daytime refreshments and cool poolside ice creams. In-room dining is also available.

Finally, for meeting planners, the Quorum event space can host up to 90 delegates, making it ideal for corporate retreats and team-building sessions.

Rayong province is a popular destination for Thai travellers, especially Bangkok residents seeking a convenient destination for weekend break. Many visitors to the province however, head straight to the island of Koh Samet rather than staying to experience the charms of mainland Rayong. Those who do stay are treated to a captivating coastal community that is idyllic and authentic, with long stretches of quiet coastline, exotic fruit orchards, fresh seafood, verdant forests and traditional towns and villages.

Located approximately 180km from Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi Airport, Rayong is easily accessible, making it ideal for standalone beach breaks or two-centre vacations combined with a stay in the Thai capital. It is also less than 40km from U-Tapao Airport, the fast-emerging international gateway to Thailand's Eastern Seaboard.
