The newly built hotel, which comes under the core brand portfolio of Centara Hotels & Resorts, is integral to the Watergate Pavillion Fashion Mall.
“We have had an enthusiastic response from our guests and visitors during the soft opening period, and now we are delighted to be opening fully with a great range of facilities and restaurant outlets in this very busy and trendy part of Bangkok,” says Wim NM Fagel, general manager of the hotel.
The hotel has 281 rooms and suites and is designed for both business and leisure travellers.
“Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel is in one of the best locations in the city, being perfectly sited for both business and consumer visitors to the Pratunam fashion and garments district, and for those visiting the Rajaprasong shopping district,” says Chris Bailey, senior vice president for sales and marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts.
"We believe it will be popular amongst visitors who require a four-star hotel in this neighbourhood, just five minutes’ walk from the Airport Rail Link."
Mr Fagel says that the hotel’s restaurants are an important attraction that will be a natural choice for local residents and tourists alike.
"Café 9, the all-day restaurant, is already proving very successful as it is an ideal place to relax during a shopping trip, and to rendezvous with friends in this bustling district," he says.
“Our two new venues, Chili Hip on the 20th floor and Walk, our rooftop open-air sky lounge on the 21st floor, will we believe add very much to the trendy local entertainment scene and become major attractions in their own right."
Chili Hip is a Thai restaurant offering authentic Thai cuisine and selected Asian specialties, served in a contemporary manner with a casual, fun ambience for guests of all ages. The restaurant, which includes a private room, is an evening-only venue. One floor above, on the rooftop level with spectacular city views, Walk is a great place to enjoy drinks before or after dinner, or to party, as it opens at 17.00 hrs and goes through to 01.00 hrs. The bar serves a selection of signature drinks along with wines and champagnes by the glass, there is a DJ station with music each night, and snacks and light meals are served from Chili Hip. Cense by Spa Cenvaree provides spa services that will be welcomed by the tired shopper, there is a fitness centre, and Moom Sabai is an outdoor relaxation area on the 9th floor that provides comfortable sun loungers.
Centara Watergate Pavillion Hotel Bangkok is designed for functions and has two meeting rooms of 90 square metres each, supported by fully adaptable conference and presentation equipment such as video teleconferencing, LCD projectors and screens together with wireless internet access, all complemented by a professional secretarial service.
