Centara Hotels & Resorts, Thailand’s leading hotel operator, has signed hotel management agreements (HMAs) for three new hotels in Myanmar.
The HMAs cover management of three hotels developed by SL International Construction Co. Ltd., including Centra by Centara Hotel Thiri Hpa-An, Hpa-An Hilltop Resort & Spa, and Centara Hotel Mandalay.
“As we continue to expand into exciting destinations such as Myanmar, a beautiful destination with great tourism potential, we look forward to showcasing our Thai hospitality and family values on a wider international stage. For this project, we are very happy to be working with SL International Construction, a partnership which I trust will contribute positively to the tourism of the country,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels and Resorts.
In the last 12 months, Centara has inked management deals for a total of nine Myanmar properties, including the latest signings with SL International Construction.
Centra by Centara Hotel Thiri Hpa-An, a 77-key hotel nestled against one of Hpa-An’s legendary karst mountains, is opening first in 2021. Opening in 2022, a short distance away is Hpa-An Hilltop Resort & Spa, which will be managed under the Centara Boutique Collection brand of upper upscale and individual boutique hotels.
In 2024, the 200-room Centara Hotel Mandalay will open as part of a mixed-use project which will also include a shopping mall, office and casino.
