Cen­tara prop­er­ties on a high in Bangkok

Travel Bulletin - - BROCHURES -

Bangkok’s Cen­tara Grand at Cen­tral­world joined the city’s high-al­ti­tude club at the end of last year with the open­ing of its rooftop UNO MAS restau­rant, 54 floors above the streets of the Thai cap­i­tal. The Span­ish-mediter­ranean restau­rant and ta­pas bar be­came the lat­est ad­di­tion to Bangkok’s mod­ern tra­di­tion of high-rise din­ing and nightlife, one of a string of rooftop venues cap­i­tal­is­ing on the night-time ci­tyscape. This year the ho­tel is still on a high af­ter the Cen­tara Grand & Bangkok Con­ven­tion Cen­tre was named among the ‘Top 25 Con­fer­ence Ho­tels’ in Asia by on­line mag­a­zine Smart Travel in its Au­gust awards. The prop­erty is among the largest con­fer­ence venues in Bangkok, with a World Ballroom for up to 1,000 peo­ple seated the­atre-style and a Con­ven­tion Hall ac­com­mo­dat­ing up to 7,000 for a cock­tail re­cep­tion. It also of­fers a series of 17 Lo­tus Suites for be­tween 10 and 400 peo­ple and high-rise cor­po­rate venue M23 on the 23rd floor. Also in Bangkok, sis­ter prop­erty Cen­tara Grand at Cen­tral Plaza Lad­prao Bangkok of­fers al­ter­na­tive venues in the Lad­prao busi­ness district. Lo­cated near the famous mar­kets of Chatuchak, the ho­tel’s Bangkok Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Hall ac­com­mo­dates up to 3,800 peo­ple for a cock­tail re­cep­tion, while its Vib­havadee Ballroom has ca­pac­ity for 2,000 guests for a re­cep­tion and is di­vis­i­ble into three pil­lar­less venues. Both prop­er­ties are key events venues within Thai­land’s Cen­tara group, which now com­prises six ho­tel brands - four un­der the Cen­tara name, as well as Cen­tra and COSI, and spa brands Spa Cen­va­ree and Cense by Cen­va­ree.
