Accor announced that it will not extend its 25-year long agreements with three Centara hotels in Thailand from January 2012

The Sofitel Centara Grand Bangkok, Sofitel Centara Grand Resort and Villas Hua Hin, and the Novotel Centara Hatyai will leave the Accor network and operate as individual Centara properties. The first collaborative agreement between Accor and Centara took off with the Sofitel Centara Grand Resort and Villas Hua Hin back in 1986.

“Sofitel is most grateful for the close and collaborative relationship with Centara over the past 25 years. This will continue through to the conclusion of the agreements and may be followed with other collaborations in the future,”

said Markland Blaiklock, senior vice-president of Sofitel Asia-Pacific.
