Central Pattana Public Company Limited. (CPN) is jazzing up the retail industry with its new ‘Lifestyle Dining projects’. Three ‘Lifestyle Dining & Gastro Bar Landmarks’, developed under a budget of more than THB 1.4 billion on a total area of 38,000 square meters, comprise Groove @ CentralWorld in central Bangkok, The Port@CentralFestival Samui in central Samui, and The Blossom @ CentralFestival Chiangmai in central Chiang Mai. The projects will respond to city people and tourists with high purchasing power, who love lifestyle dining and partying. The three landmark projects will help promote Thailand as a leading travel destination of the world.

Ms. Wallaya Chirathivat,  CPN’s Senior Executive Vice President for Business Development, Design & Project Construction for CPN, said: “CPN sees the growing popularity of the global lifestyle dining trend. Consumers’ dining lifestyles are changing. They are getting more selective when choosing a place to dine after work, resulting in the introduction of hip spots in famous cities, including the Meatpacking District in New York, Liverpool Street in London, Xin Tian Di in Shanghai, Lan Kwai Fong in Hong Kong, and Clarke Quay in Singapore. CPN is thus developing three ‘Lifestyle Dining & Gastro Bar Landmarks’ to become dining places that respond to every need. The three projects are Groove @ CentralWorld in central Bangkok, The Port @ CentralFestival Samui in central Samui, and The Blossom @ CentralFestival Chiangmai in central Chiang Mai. The places will surely become the best places to hang out for trendsetters.”

“The three ‘Lifestyle Dining & Gastro Bar Landmarks’ will also help promote Thailand as a leading travel destination of the world, which will support the increasing number of investors and tourists after the commencement of the AEC. The projects feature world famous dining and gastro bars coming in both indoor and al fresco styles, including: Harrods from England; Maxim’s de Paris and Fauchon from France; COVA from Italy; and Water Library and Wine Connection from Thailand. Some of the restaurants will be introduced for the first time in Thailand. The new projects will strengthen our shopping centers as our customers will happily spend time at our shopping centers from the morning until night,” added Ms. Chirathivat.

Groove @ CentralWorld will be developed under a budget of more than THB 600 million. The project is situated on an area of approximately 15,000 square meters in front of CentralWorld, facing Rama I Road. The project will become a landmark place for nightlife, thanks to its high potential location surrounded by five-star hotels and residences, and top office buildings. Furthermore, the shopping centers itself welcomes more than 180,000 customers a day, 40% of whom are tourists.

The Port @ CentralFestival Samui will be developed under a budget of THB 450 million. The new ‘Lifestyle Dining & Gastro Bar Landmark’ will be located on the best location of Chaweng Beach of Samui Island, which is a world-class beach destination. The island has high economic growth and welcomes about 1.9 million high-end tourists each year. There are more than 500 hotels on the island, more than half of which are four or five-star hotels. CPN believes The Port @ CentralFestival Samui, located on an area of 11,000 square meters, will become the first place where Thai and foreign tourists will think of when it comes to partying and nightlife.

Chiang Mai is a leading travel destination of Thailand, having more than five million tourists each year. There are about 40 five-star hotels in the province. The Blossom @ CentralFestival Chiangmai, constructed under a budget of THB 370 million, will become the first and only place for lifestyle dining and nightlife. Located on an area of 12,000 square meters, the ‘Lifestyle Dining & Gastro Bar Landmark’ in Chiang Mai under the theme Flora Blossom will definitely add liveliness to the town.
