Centara Grand at CentralWorld Review

Siam - Bangkok


Bangkok has a new addition to its ever-expanding and rising skyline. Centara Grand at CentralWorld is a five-star flagship hotel in the centre of all the action, yet one can still find a tranquil atmosphere here. The hotel consists of 505 elegantly appointed and luxurious accommodations with a vast range of business and recreational facilities within. Centara Grand is an ideal choice for all, but its connection to the Central mega mall, which offers an unparalleled array of products and services, makes it a paradise for shopaholics.

Where is it?

Centara Grand is adjacent to the CentralWorld complex, Southeast Asia's largest lifestyle shopping centre, home to over 500 leading brand shops, 50 dining outlets, and state-of-the-art cinemas. The hotel is located on the eastern side of the shopping mall and the lobby is accessible from various zones in the mall.

The hotel is centrally located and easily accessible via a breezy SkyWalk from Siam and Chidlom BTS Skytrain stations, which also link to the MRT Underground network, providing convenient connections to other exciting areas of Bangkok.  Silom and Sukhumvit can be reached in less than 15 minutes. A short stroll from Centara Grand can lead you to wholesale clothing outlets at Platinum Fashion Mall and Bangkok's famous IT Complex, Pantip Plaza, both located in Pratunam.

What are the Rooms like?

Centara Grand features luxurious accommodations in a variety of styles and configurations, including 469 Rooms, 36 Suites, and nine World Executive Club floors. Guestrooms and suites at Centara Grand are located from the 28th to the 54th floor. Without question, all rooms offer spectacular views of Bangkok.

I stayed in a Deluxe World room, decorated in contemporary style and it was an ultra-modern living experience. A big inviting bed positioned at an angle and near the windows was adorned with cushions and fluffy pillows. A Panasonic Viera flat-screen television is cleverly mounted on a swivel arm allowing it to be viewed from bed, the working table, or even from the bathroom.

A unique circular bathtub with a powerful rain shower is set in the centre of the bathroom.  A set of complimentary toiletries offers the fragrance of the Buddhist symbolic lotus flower. Apart from the head-to-feet mirror, my favorite amenity is the view though the window above the washbasin. A very nice bathroom indeed. All accommodations within this five-star property are equipped with modern facilities and services. These include free high-speed internet access, satellite TV programs, pay-per-view movies, games, radio and in-house music, mini-bar, refrigerator, safety deposit box, IDD line telephone, and iPod dock.


Restaurant & Bar

Centara Grand has nine in-house restaurants and bars, open from early morning until late at night. Room service is also available around the clock. Globe Bar, located in the hotel lobby, is a perfect meeting point to enjoy the sounds of the 70s and 80s and to sip a unique selection of cocktails, whiskies, and beer. The World on the 24th floor is where International buffet breakfast is served. Both a tasty set-menu and à la carte options are available for lunch and dinner.

A dining experience not to be missed, 55, a gourmet restaurant, and RedSky, a chic urban bistro and bar on the 55th floor, feature spectacular panoramic views of the City of Angels. Alternatively, guests will also find an extensive choice of restaurants in CentralWorld shopping centre, mostly located on the 3rd, 6th, and 7th floors. Food Loft and Zense at Zen are highly recommended.


The fitness centre Lifestyle on 26 offers advanced exercise equipment and facilities that will enable you to achieve your personal physical potential. Lifestyle features a state-of-the-art fitness centre, swimming pool, and two outdoor tennis courts. A juice bar and the nearby Spa Cenvaree are perfect alternatives to soothe your tired muscles after a workout or a long day of shopping. Located on the 26th floor and open from 06:00 – 24:00.

Business Facilities

For Executive Suite guests, Centara Grand offers the magnificent World Executive Club Lounge equipped with private library, a selection of meeting rooms, free broadband internet access, with a complimentary executive breakfast, afternoon tea, evening cocktails (17:30 – 19:00), and all-day snacks, coffee, and refreshments. The club lounge is open 24 hours a day and covers the entire 51st floor of the hotel.

The Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld is one of the biggest in the region. It features 15 meeting rooms, a world-class ballroom, a boardroom, an outdoor venue, and a theatre-style convention hall with 6,000 seats, with a fully integrated support system and a dedicated team of industry professionals to ensure the success of any event.

The Verdict

Truly a five-star hotel, Centara Grand at CentralWorld offers something for everyone: world-class accommodations, a wide range of facilities, and a luxurious club lounge for executive travellers.  A selection of the finest restaurants and bars, great shopping venues, all with convenient access, and an especially fantastic view of Bangkok that can be seen from every room. The hotel is packed with all of the essentials you need for the perfect Bangkok holiday experience.
