Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Destinations -

Cen­tara Ho­tels & Re­sorts is busy de­vel­op­ing Cosi, an af­ford­able life­style brand which tar­gets ‘tech-savvy trav­ellers’. De­tails of its third pro­ject, the 142-room Cosi Krabi Ao Nang Beach, fol­lows on from its first prop­erty on Sa­mui Is­land and ground-break­ing of its sec­ond ho­tel in Pat­taya.

In place of the typ­i­cal lobby counter are self-serve kiosks that speed up check-in and check-out while the Hub serves as a 24/7 so­cial and me­dia café where guests can grab a sip or a bite and con­nect with friends. Guests re­ceive daily cred­its to use for food and drink any time at the WYSIWYG Café and can con­nect their phones to the 43-inch SmartTV. The new Krabi ho­tel, due to open in 2020, will have five USB ports per room.

Along­side its Thai ex­pan­sion, Cen­tara will be en­hanc­ing its Gulf pro­file when its 600-room, four-star re­sort is sched­uled to open on Deira Is­lands Dubai in 2020.
