Centara Hotels & Resorts are looking to entice families that form a large part of its business, this summer. Its hotels and resorts categorised by Centara as family-friendly offer free accommodation for up to two children under the age of 12 years sharing their parents’ room and bedding, and if breakfast is included in the room rate, the kids get to enjoy breakfast too.
All the family-friendly hotels have a Kids’ Club, a Centara brand staffed by qualified child-minders and divided into two sections: Camp Safari for the young ones, and E-Zone for the older children and the teens. Leisure activities in the resort grounds and on the beach also take into account the needs of the youngsters.
Three of Centara’s seven resorts in Phuket, Thailand, offer outstanding family features.
The Centara Grand West Sands Resort & Villas Phuket, located on the northwest coast at the huge expanse of Mai Khao Beach has been created around a vast water park. Dubbed “Splash Jungle”, it features 12 waterslides, including the huge and exhilarating Boomerango and the Super Bowl, along with a wave machine, and a lazy river that runs for 225 m through the park.
At the popular beach resort of Karon, Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket is designed around a water park, although a more restrained one than that at West Sands. There are four swimming pools here, including a pool for the youngsters and a Jacuzzi pool, and the park includes a lazy river, waterslides and waterfalls.
Its third property, Centara Karon Resort Phuket, is characterised by four distinct residential zones. The Terraces is a nine-storey wing that features spacious rooms, each with its own oversize terrace, and with the option of a private outdoor Jacuzzi. Set around one of the resort pools, The Lagoon offers accommodation that is especially suitable for families ease.
