Centara upgrades and rebrands Koh Chang resort

Koh Chang Tropicana Beach Resort & Spa, managed by Centara, is undergoing a multi-million baht upgrade prior to being rebranded as Centara Koh Chang Tropicana Resort. Rebranding will take place at the beginning of November 2012, following completion of the renovation program.

Centara Hotels & Resorts acquired the management contract for the property, which is set on Klong Prao Beach on the island’s west coast, in April of this year.

“We are delighted to have added this exceptionally fine resort to our management portfolio and look forward now to the completion of this very extensive upgrading program and the rebranding of the property,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, Chief Executive Officer of Centara Hotels & Resorts.

The upgrade will see renovations and remodeling undertaken to the entrance, lobby, and reception, and the creation of a new lobby bar.

The ocean-facing Sea Breeze restaurant and bar will also be completely renovated.


The resort’s existing Sand Spa is being remodeled and will be rebranded as a Spa Cenvaree.

Interior remodeling is being undertaken on 22 of the cabanas to make the accommodation more family-friendly, a new kids’ club and adventure playground is being installed, and a waterslide is being added to the splash pool.

All guestrooms and outlets will have complimentary Wi-Fi following the rebranding.

The resort’s 157 spacious rooms and suites are designed to enhance the sensation of living in a tropical setting and are contained in two wings, Superior and Deluxe, spread throughout landscaped gardens.

With its natural surroundings the resort is a tranquil one, and along with the oceanfront swimming pool, water sports, and spa, there are nearby attractions such as forest paths, waterfalls, a fishing village, and an elephant camp to explore.
