BANGKOK, 18 August 2022: Thailand’s leading hotel operator Centara Hotels & Resorts appoints  Metta Boonyaritipong as opening general manager for Centra by Centara Hotel Bangkok Phra Nakhon.

Opening in October, the 180-key Centra by Centara Hotel Bangkok Phra Nakhon will provide a comfortable base for guests to explore the area’s notable landmarks, including the Grand Palace, Wat Pho, National Museum, Pak Khlong Talat flower market, as well as discover the historic district’s street food and family-run eateries.

Metta transfers to Centra by Centara Hotel Bangkok Phra Nakhon from Centara Sonrisa Residences & Suites Sriracha, where she has held the general manager post since July 2020.

The seasoned hospitality professional started in southern Thailand as a Personal Assistant to the group general manager for Centara resorts in Surat Thani.

“We have closely witnessed Khun Metta’s career growth and shared in her success throughout the years. She is a very effective leader and manager, and we are delighted to have her head up our new hotel in the storied quarter of Phra Nakhon in Bangkok,” said Centara Hotels & Resorts executive vice president – hotel operations David Good.
