Centara Hotels & Resorts of Thailand will soon open their first stand-alone spa and restaurant properties in India in collaboration with the Acron Group.
Centara’s signature wellness brand, Spa Cenvaree, and their three restaurants, Chili-Hip, Vibes, and Zing, will form part of Acron Place, a $10 m wellness, restaurant and retail lifestyle center in Candolim, the famed beach Riviera in North Goa.
Centara, Thailand’s leading hotel chain, is part of the Central Group of Companies, Thailand’s leading retail group established for more than 60 years and a major owner, developer, and operator of malls, department stores, fast food, and commercial properties. In addition, to iconic business hotels in Bangkok, the chain operates over 55 world-class resorts in idyllic locations in Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, and the Maldives.
The Acron Group, a leading property development company in the hospitality, construction, and retail sectors, based in Mumbai, India, with numerous residential, commercial, warehousing, and hospitality developments to their credit, have ongoing projects in Mumbai, Goa, and Bangalore.
“We are delighted to be collaborating with Acron in our entry into India’s hospitality and wellness industry, and we are confident of the tremendous future potential for both companies in hotel and spa developments across the country,” said Suthikiati Chirathivat, Chairman of Centara Hotels&Resorts, “Goa presents the perfect lifestyle destination to commence our operations in India. Spa Cenvaree has been enormously successful in all its in-hotel locations, and we are convinced that this is the right time and place to introduce authentic Thai spa and wellness experiences in India, in a stand-alone property. Our three restaurant brands will delight guests with a superb blend of Asian and international cuisines and the gracious service that Thailand is famous for.”
Amar J. Britto, Acron Group’s CEO, said: “Acron has specialized in high-quality residential, commercial, and hospitality developments since 1988. Following collaborations with renowned Indian and US chains for our hotel properties in Mumbai and Goa, we are excited about the launch of this new partnership with the Centara Hotels&Resorts of Thailand. We believe that, in time, both our companies will achieve great heights and strengths in India’s burgeoning hospitality and wellness space.”
Recognized as an innovative spa brand in the Asia Pacific region, Spa Cenvaree is present in a network of 27 upscale properties, and will soon expand its presence to new destinations including Mauritius, China, Sri Lanka, and Bali, bringing its portfolio of spas to a total of 40 across 9 counties. The signature treatments, experiences, and wellness products at Spa Cenvaree are well known internationally.
