Centara Hotels & Resorts has added five properties to its diverse portfolio in a drive to strengthen its footprint in Thailand and Vietnam.

Michael Henssler, chief operating officer at Centara, said the company is off to a dynamic start in 2024.

"As we expand our footprint in Thailand, Vietnam and beyond, we are excited about the future and the expansive opportunities that lie ahead for brands," he said.

Centara signed a strategic hotel management agreement (HMA) with Phi Phi Paradise Co for its Villa 360 property.

Scheduled to reopen as Centara Villas Phi Phi Island in October 2024, this resort offers 40 villas ranging from 56 to 133.5 square metres, with a full array of facilities.

Mr Henssler said Centara also signed an HMA at the end of 2023 with Kornsiri Hospitality Management for Tiva Ao Makham Resort Phuket.

The greenfield project is set to redefine health-focused travel with exceptional facilities.

Offering 68 rooms along Phuket's southeastern coast, the resort will be Centara's 11th hotel in Phuket and the newest edition to its boutique collection.

In Vietnam, the company is set to open two properties in Vung Tau City, a popular destination along the southern coast, in the first quarter of 2027.

The 261-key Centara Life Vung Tau promises exceptional stays that are flexible and full of daily delights.

Meanwhile, Centara Residence Dio Dua will offer 536 rooms.

Adding to the allure of Van Don as a premier tourist destination in northern Vietnam, Crystal Holidays Harbor Van Don will be opening a second tower in the second quarter of 2025 as part of its plan to develop five hotel and resort apartment buildings within its five-star international standard resort and entertainment complex.

"We are proud to welcome these exceptional properties into our portfolio as we embark on this exciting phase of expansion," said Andrew Langston, senior vice-president for business development at Centara.

"These new signings represent significant milestones for Centara Hotels & Resorts, setting the stage to further pursue unique opportunities and partnerships around the world while fuelling our momentum to shape the future of hospitality."
