Free spending money from Centara

Free spending money from Centara

The Baht Bonanza program is available throughout 2012, with the exception of certain holiday and seasonal dates as specified per individual hotel.

Participation in Baht Bonanza is completely free, with the money available for use in the hotel restaurants, spa, and other selected activities.

Hotels and resorts within the program are located in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Krabi, Samui, Koh Pha-Ngan, Trat, and Rayong.

Baht Bonanza works on a sliding scale. If a guest deposits 10,000 baht upon arrival, Centara adds free of charge the sum of 5,000 baht, giving the guest a total of 15,000 baht to enjoy during his or her stay. A 20,000 baht deposit will see 12,000 baht added by Centara, bringing the total to 32,000 baht. Other amounts deposited see an incremental increase in the amounts matched by Centara, up to a deposit of 100,000 baht being matched by a Centara contribution of 100,000 baht.

In this way, the scheme is attractive both to independent travelers and to families or groups, as it has the flexibility to be used by all categories of guest.


Baht Bonanza has to be agreed within the first 24 hours of stay, and no refunds are available for unspent residual value.

There is a top-up option, in which a new Bonanza package can be issued to the value of the guest’s choice upon the settling of the existing package.

Centara Hotels & Resorts is Thailand’s largest hotel and resort management company, with a total of 54 properties throughout Thailand and a growing overseas portfolio that includes the Maldives, Indian Himalayas, Vietnam, Philippines, Bali, and Mauritius.
