Centara Hotels & Resorts recently broke ground in North Pattaya for another COSI hotel. COSI is a new brand designed for the modern, connected lifestyle of a growing travel market segment. It offers friendly, simple and affordable accommodations, with innovations like smartphone integration, selfservice check-in, and a unique 24-hour lifestyle café concept with more freedom and flexibility. The first COSI hotel opened in Samui in December.
COSI Pattaya Naklua Beach will offer 282 hi-tech rooms, all with Smart TVs. Free WiFi and convenient USB ports are in every room and throughout the hotel. COSI also features a swimming pool, laundromat, and the all-hours “Hub”, a social hangout and digital playspace, with integrated WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Café. Guests can enjoy free food and drink there using the daily credits they get with their stay. The location is a short walk to the beach and 5-minutes’ drive to Central Festival Pattaya. The hotel will open in 2019.
The development of the COSI brand is an integral part of the company’s ambitious, five year expansion plan. Within that timeframe, Centara expects to add close to 40 more COSI hotels to its portfolio, all situated in resort and city locations throughout Thailand and Asia.
