Centara Grand Phratamnak is another hotel with all known networks of Centara. It is located on a hill called Phratamnak in Pattaya city. Our team was able to personally visit it, and now we share our impressions.
Knowing this network, we assumed everything will be on a five stars level, and we were not disappointed at all.
Centara Grand Phratamnak 5* is situated almost at the sea, with only a few meters separating it from the beach. There is a private parking space, swimming pool, coffee shop, several restaurants, and a bar with good music playing on the roof.
First impressions are very nice, probably due to the fact that it seems as if you're on a big cruise ship. The place was elegantly decorated with beautiful and comfortable furniture, interestingly huge aquariums, crystal chandeliers, with a piano standing in the center, dim light, and pleasant music.
On arrival you will be greeted by the venue’s friendly staff that will escort you in, and offer refreshing drinks.

"Oceana" takes you into the underwater world; where you can see sharks, rays and other marine life through the glass of aquariums. The menu features international cuisine.
