Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thailand's leading hotel operator and Baansuay Group (Suratthani) PCL. announced the signing of a Hotel Management Agreement (HMA) for Centra by Centara Hotel Surat Thani. Senior executives from the two companies officially executed the agreement at a signing ceremony held recently at Centara's flagship Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld.

The largest of Thailand's southern provinces, Surat Thani is a main transit point for travellers en route to some of the Kingdom's most famous islands, including Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.

The project comprises the complete renovation of an existing low-rise hotel, with work currently underway and an anticipated opening date of 1st July 2023, which includes the renovation of 110 rooms, all-day dining Dim Sum restaurant, casual in-style Japanese restaurant and meeting room. The completion of a second phase is expected in early 2025, which will see the construction of a new building to house additional facilities including large function room, fitness centre and swimming pool.

The guest journey at Centra by Centara Hotel Surat Thani invites travellers to experience the local community with a concept design that bridges that gap between ethnic communities in surrounding Bandon Bay with contemporary furnishings and local arts and crafts.

The 110-key hotel will offer spacious accommodation ranging from 24 to 36 square metres, featuring amenities and services that allow guests to relax at their home away from home, including connecting rooms for families. Essential facilities include a lobby envisioned as dynamic multi-use spaces, two restaurants which will be positioned as a destination in themselves, as well as a deck and garden area with blurred indoor-outdoor boundaries.

Centra by Centara Hotel Surat Thani is located in the city centre, a 15-minute drive to Lomprayah Tapee Pier and Tha Thong Pier, and a 30-minute drive from Surat Thani International Airport.
