Thailand-based hotel operator Centara Hotels & Resorts is renovating its five-star flagship property, Centara Grand at CentralWorld Bangkok. The company is investing TH฿650 million in the room improvement project, which will see a complete floor-to-ceiling renovation of all 505 guestrooms and suites, an undertaking that will happen two floors at a time to avoid disruption to guests.

The designs for the new room interiors draw inspiration from Thai artisans, textures and patterns and will create a modern and contemporary aesthetic. Guestrooms, including bathrooms and furniture, will be totally redesigned and upgraded, and technology and connectivity will be installed at a standard reflecting the demands of today’s travelers.

Centara Grand at CentralWorld Bangkok marked its 10-year anniversary earlier this year. The 57-story hotel has views of the city from its guestrooms, restaurants and rooftop bars, and a direct connection to the adjacent CentralWorld mall, since the hotel sits in the heart of Bangkok’s shopping and business district.

The room improvement project is expected to be completed in April 2021.
