Centara Opens a Hotel in Mai Khao Beach, Phuket

News Centara Hotels & Resorts has just concluded the management contract concerning the operation of a newly built 5-star hotel in Mai Khao Beach – one of the most popular destinations in Phuket, Thailand. Centara Grand West Sands Resort & Villas Phuket is just 15 minutes away from Phuket International airport. The owner and developer of the hotel, Central & City Developments Ltd, has initially decided to operate this property under the name West Sands Phuket. However, later it was decided to use a hotel management company.

Centara plans to make this resort interesting and attractive to wide masses of tourists – from single visitors to family couples, tourists with children and even tourist groups. The superb location right on Mai Khao Beach makes these plans possible. The hotel is located in a picturesque place of 47 acres with 500 meters of its own beach with pristine nature. The hotel will feature stunning looks of the truly spectacular west coast of Phuket.

On the territory of the resort will be located a waterpark with 12 slides, a 335 m long lazy river and a giant superbowl slide. The first phase of the project is completed at the moment. It includes 316 rooms (97 one bedroom suites, 18 two-bedroom grand suites, 36 one-bedroom grand suites, 12 three-bedroom penthouses, 115 deluxe rooms and 38 villas). The second phase will be finished in October 2012, and the last third phase will start operating in October 2013. This will increase the total number of rooms to 784.

On the territory of the resort are also located restaurants, bars, a spa, a kid’s club, a fitness center, a tennis court, and more.
