Meanwhile, it will attract independent travellers from other core markets including Middle East, the United States, and the emerging mainland China market.

The hotel is also in talks with the Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association, the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau on how to bring tourists and business travellers back into the area.

After the attack on the Erawan Shrine on August 17 that killed 20 people, Centara Hotels and Resorts said the group lost more than Bt10 million from room cancellations and a huge drop in food and beverage consumption at its hotels. About 3,400 room-nights were cancelled, mostly at Centara Grand at Central World (900 room-nights), Centara Grand Ladprao (800) and Centara Pattaya (700).
