The resort will stay open only until 1 June 2019, then close for the renovation work. Centara plans to redesign all rooms and suites, add luxury villas, and introduce exciting new dining concepts and services. The objective is to retain the unique, classic charm of the existing hotel, but transform it to a new level of luxury.
Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui has been welcoming and delighting guests for 23 years, during which time it has witnessed the development of the surrounding town and island into one of Thailand’s most popular holiday destinations. Thanks to its prime location, first class Thai style hospitality and exceptional facilities, it has stood the test of time consistently winning a host of international awards and proving one of the true Grande Dame hotels of Samui.
