Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort in Pattaya was ranked #1 in Thailand, while Centara Grand Beach Resort in Phuket was #4 and Centara Karon Beach Resort, also in Phuket, was #7 in the family category of Travelers’ Choice Awards released by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel website.
“Being family-friendly is part of our company DNA,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, Centara’s CEO. “We work hard to welcome families with children and offer them a superior holiday experience. It starts with the design of the hotel and continues through family amenities, activity programmes, and service attitude. These awards are evidence we’re succeeding.”
TripAdvisor gives the awards annually, based on the reviews and opinions of millions of its users. The rankings are based on people who have stayed at each hotel during the past year.
Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort was the first true themed resort in Thailand. Its Lost World motif features several swimming pools, waterslides, giant sculptures and palm trees towering over a lazy river and Monsoon Island. Children enjoy the Kids’ Club, E-zone, and organised activities supervised by hotel staff. The resort even has a family version of club level: its Zulu Family Club has a play area for toddlers while their parents enjoy an afternoon refreshment. The resort lies along a 230-metre stretch of sandy beach.
Like Centara Grand Mirage in Pattaya, Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket is a 5-star resort built around a waterpark with multiple pools, river, and waterslides. Its Kids’ Club and Camp Safari are complemented by a cliff jumping platform, and water sports in the Andaman Sea including kayaking, sailing, windsurfing and snorkelling. The resort features Sino-Portuguese style and has direct access to Karon Beach.
Centara Karon Resort is a unique concept for Phuket, featuring four distinct zones so guests can find the perfect match for their needs. Family amenities include rooms that easily accommodate four; three large swimming pools, including the Lagoon pool with two waterslides; and a Kids’ Club, Camp Safari, and E-Zone to keep children and teens entertained.
This year marks the third time Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort has won TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice award for family-friendly accommodations. Other Centara resorts in Thailand have received the recognition from TripAdvisor users each year since 2014. Centara was also recently listed among Smart Travel Asia’s Hot 25 Family Hotels. – TradeArabia News Service
