Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts said: “Our guest mix will be both leisure and business, and the hotel facilities will reflect this.”

The hotel will showcase 154 guestrooms, with two food and beverage outlets, a swimming pool, a spa and a fitness centre. The hotel will also include extensive meeting facilities.
