Phuket Welcomes Mandarin Oriental
Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced that it will manage a new luxury resort in Phuket with local partner Grand Larn Luang, which is scheduled to open in 2022.
Mandarin Oriental, Phuket will be located on one of the rare undeveloped beachfront sites still to be found on ‘Millionaire’s Mile’ on the west coast of Phuket. It will occupy 9.5 hectares of land in the secluded and picturesque Laem Singh Bay. The hotel’s 105 rooms, including 37 bespoke pool villas, will offer guests exceptional accommodation, with significant outdoor spaces, all of which will provide panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and the sunset. The site itself encloses a white sand beach with rocky outcrops, providing excellent access for snorkelling and swimming.
Facilities include three restaurants and bars with magnificent oceanfront settings, comprising an all-day dining venue, specialty restaurant, sunset bar and a beach club. There will be a range of flexible function facilities, ideal for landmark events, social gatherings or business meetings.
The Group’s signature wellness therapies and treatments will be provided in a spacious Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a well-equipped fitness centre and two outdoor swimming pools. A Kid’s Club and a host of outdoor leisure pursuits will also be available.
James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental, said, “Phuket is one of Asia’s leading leisure destinations and we are delighted to have found such a special site on which to develop our resort. The Group’s established reputation and experience in delivering award-winning service and facilities at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, when combined with this stunning new property, will provide guests a unique proposition for a luxury visit to the entrancing Kingdom of Thailand. We look forward to working with our partners to create this.”
Sansrit Yenbamrung, CEO of Grand Larn Luang, added, “We are pleased to partner with Mandarin Oriental on this very exciting project, which will provide visitors with a world-class facility, coupled with the renowned service of Mandarin Oriental.”
