If you haven’t considered taking a tried-and-tested approach to selling Centara Hotels & Resorts, now is the time to start. The Asian accommodation provider is offering professionals employed at a travel agency, tour operator, hotel or resort, airline, car rental company or cruise line 10% off all its online partner rates. Plus, for every Centara stay, these travel industry members will earn points that can be redeemed for money off their next visit.

With a new resort launching in Thailand in September 2019, there’s never been a better time to stay with Centara. The Centara Ao Nang Beach Resort & Spa Krabi is soon to open its doors on the country’s south-west coast, on the quieter end of Ao Nang Beach. It’s just a short walk from the town’s eateries and bars, so fresh seafood prepared and cooked by the locals is never more than a short stroll away – especially as it's served in-resort too. The rooms are modern and airy, styled with soothing, ocean-inspired hues, and its beachfront swimming pool is elevated to make the most of the sea views.
Elsewhere in the province, the Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi can be found tucked away in a secluded cove, its backdrop is one of the region’s iconic grey limestone cliffs. The resort is only accessible by boat, so guests can enjoy the beach’s privacy while unwinding during blissful spa treatments, tasting Thai delicacies on the silky sand and trying out a range of watersports in the turquoise sea.
Phuket is also a popular Thai destination for Centara stays. The Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket draws its design from the classic Sino-Portuguese architecture that characterises Phuket Town and is built around a comprehensive pool system. Just a stone’s throw away from the resort’s pools, guests can bury their toes in the hot sand of Karon Beach, which is sheltered by a lush, green hill and frequented by couples and families.
But it’s not just Krabi and Phuket in which Centara has put down roots. The accommodation provider has properties in Bangkok, Rayong, Khao Lak, Hat Yai, Pattaya, Hua Hin, Koh Chang, Chiang Mai, Mae Sot, Koh Samui, Trat and Udon Thani. Or, if you or your client would rather check out a different part of the world with Centara, hotels are also available in Qatar, Oman, the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. So, what are you waiting for? There really is no better education than first-hand experience.
