First paying guest for new IHG resort in Phuket
IHG (InterContinental Hotel Group) recently announced the soft opening of InterContinental Phuket Resort in a multi-religious ceremony as it welcomed its first paying guest, Khun Jaraspim Liptapanlop.
Inspired by Phuket’s natural landscape, the resort will be a tribute to Thailand’s rich heritage and modern contemporary lifestyle, marking the luxury brand’s debut in Phuket.
Scheduled to open officially on 1 September 2019, the new sanctuary for discerning travellers will offer a collection of 221 elegantly-appointed rooms and villas on the pristine Kamala Beach, also known as the Millionaire’s Mile.
A thoughtfully curated collection of gourmet experiences, wellness rituals and event venues against the stunning backdrop of Phuket’s rainforested mountain range is designed to make InterContinental Phuket Resort an ideal destination for both leisure and business travellers alike.
With a perfect beach-front location near the protected northern cove of Kamala Beach, the resort evokes a sense of serenity in a natural landscape of lush forested hills where white powdery sand meet the azure waters of Andaman Sea.
The property offers integrated recreational facilities that cater to all travellers’ requirements. As a mark of distinction, the expansive Club InterContinental lounge experience features a second-floor beach vista frontage, indoor and outdoor dining areas as well as a large private sundeck and infinity pool.
Other facilities include five swimming pools with breathtaking views, a well-equipped Fitness Centre, tennis court and Planet Trekkers Kids Club to keep the young and old engaged.
Bjorn Courage, the resort’s general manager, said: “Being the world’s first luxury hotel brand founded 70 years ago, we are delighted to continue this pioneering spirit by introducing the InterContinental Life to Phuket.
“Rooted in Thai traditions and craftsmanship, InterContinental Phuket Resort brings discerning travellers on a multi-sensory journey that will heighten curiosity about this beloved beach destination and inspire the kind of memorable experiences that guests expect from InterContinental Hotels and Resorts.”
