Seeing is Believing’ has always been the cornerstone of Centara’s philosophy and Thailand’s leading hotel group is once again encouraging Australian and New Zealand travel professionals to experience their product first-hand by introducing new industry rates for next year.
With very attractive industry rates and an online booking system Centara are looking forward to welcoming and playing host to Australian and New Zealand travel retailers, wholesalers, tour operators, airlines and hotels. The rates can be booked on the group’s ‘Trade partner’ site where industry staff can check eligibility and then book their rate with real time availability.
With rates starting from as little as THB 1,100 ($AUD 44.00 / $NZD 48.00) travel industry professionals can choose between a range of different experiences, ranging from 3.5-star value to the most exclusive luxury stays in the 5-star ‘Centara Grand’ properties.
In the Maldives, travel professionals can enjoy an ‘Ultimate All-Inclusive’ plan delivering a cash free holiday and that includes champagne breakfasts, a choice of three lunch and dinner options, free flow open bars, access to non-mortorised water sports, off island excursions and daily access to a variety of spa treatments at the award winning SPA Cenvaree.
‘We believe that experiencing our products first-hand is not only just a reward for booking but will also give travel professionals more confidence to sell the product to customers’ says Charlie Ridout, sales and marketing representative of Centara Hotels & Resorts in Australia and New Zealand. ‘Centara constantly thrive for optimization and innovation of their product offering and we look forward to showcasing the latest developments to our travel industry.’
Centara Hotels & Resorts currently operate 33 deluxe and first-class properties across Thailand, as well as 6 hotels and resorts in the Maldives, Vietnam, Bali, Sri Lanka, Qatar, Laos, Oman, Turkey and China.
The Centara properties’ appeal is a broad one and can be divided into four ‘core’ brands that cater to a vast range of travellers’ needs:
The Centara Grand hotels and resorts are in the five-star category with landmark properties in prime resort and beachfront locations, and key city areas whereas the core four-star brand, Centara, enjoys premium settings in city-centre locations and beach and island destinations with property sizes being smaller in size to the Grand brand but offering extensive leisure facilities.
Centara Boutique Collection consists of resorts designed for independently minded travellers that appreciate uniqueness in design and an individual approach to hospitality.
‘Centra’ is Centara’s value brand featuring trendy hotels in a range of destinations for those looking for good value in a convenient location.
