Centara Hotels & Resorts will expand the Centara brand to Japan for the first time. The newbuild upscale property will feature 515-rooms, located on a prime site in Osaka’s Namba district, the centre of leisure tourism for the city. The property is scheduled to open in mid-2023.
“Extending the Centara footprint to Japan has been a long-term strategic objective for the company, and this is a major milestone for the Centara brand as we have successfully added the 14th country to our portfolio,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, Centara’s CEO.
Centara Hotels & Resorts is partnering with Taisei Corporation and Kanden Realty & Development to bring the vision to fruition.
The hotel will occupy a stunning new 34-storey tower with 360-degree views of the city. The top floors will include a lounge along with customisable space for meetings and events, plus a rooftop restaurant and sky bar providing panoramic views.
Facilities will include award winning Spa Cenvaree, a fully equipped fitness centre, a diverse selection of restaurants and banquet facilities and the hotel’s spacious lobby will welcome guests with touches of Thai and Japanese style and ambience.
The addition of its first property in Japan is further proof of Centara’s expansion strategy, which calls for doubling the number of properties under its management by 2022.
