CENTARA’S LATEST BEACHSIDE INNOVATION TAKES OFF
BANGKOK, March 26, 2015– Centara Hotel & Resort’s “beach bar” concept is being implemented across a number of Centara properties, after a successful opening of the original Coast Beach Bar & Grill at the Centara Samui Grand Beach Resort, on the tropical Thai island of Koh Samui.
Coast Beach Bar & Grill is an all-day destination located on the most beautiful southern stretch of Samui’s Chaweng beach, combining a tranquil beachside setting with a bar and grill restaurant. Designed in a relaxed, modern style, each beach bar will form a natural hub around which guests can enjoy the sand and sea sights, while eating and drinking beach-side at the times that suit them.
Indoor and outdoor seating options at Coast range from large sofas to round beach ‘day’ beds and sunken terraced banquets. Popular international dishes such as tapas are served continually, while the bar’s dedicated cocktail mixologists serve up an intricate array of tropical cocktails. During both day and evening, fresh seafood is chargrilled to perfection, and is served with a variety of salads and other popular side dishes. During the dinner hours, guests can chose from an abundance of innovative dishes, with a focus on grilled imported meats and local seafood.
To help create the perfect tropical beach atmosphere, Coast makes a point of always playing the latest in imported ambient music, favoring modern jazz and electronica styles. Additionally, an ever-changing line-up of live entertainment starts each sunset so guests can experience some local musical talent and participate in a lively social environment.
The roll-out of Centara’s other Coast concept bars will continue throughout 2015, with Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya’s Oceans being rebranded as Coast beginning May 2015 and Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket building a dedicated new Coast restaurant opening in October 2015.
