The property will ideally complement the Moevenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket, the first property the company opened in Thailand in 2006.
Both Phuket properties harmoniously blend Thailand’s gentle way of life with the Swiss tradition of hospitality and attention to detail to create two striking holiday getaways for discerning travellers.
Moevenpick Residences Laguna Beach Phuket is located on Bang Tao Beach, one of Phuket Island’s most pristine beaches and famous among golfers. The Phuket International Airport and several world-class golf courses, including Blue Canyon Country Club and the Laguna Phuket Golf Club are within a 20-minute drive from the property.
The resort features luxurious penthouses and two and three-bedroom suites, all blending the best of Thai and contemporary design. Modern interiors evoke an easy living design complete with large balconies and some come with a private pool or Jacuzzi. All are designed to provide a perfect haven for families, friends and long-term guests, creating a delightful ambience for a memorable holiday.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to operate this exclusive retreat and to expand our presence in Thailand, one of Asia’s top leisure destinations,” said Andreas Mattmueller, Chief Operating Officer of Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East & Asia. “We have plans to increase our portfolio in the country and to operate six hotels in Thailand by 2014.”
Guests can choose from a variety of leisure and entertaining facilities including an expansive swimming pool nestled amid tropical gardens, lively dining options and a modern fitness centre. Spa enthusiasts will enjoy Blossom Spa, a world-class facility offering traditional Thai treatments.
Guido Karl Wenk, owner of Diamond Management Co. Ltd. and property owner said, ‘We are delighted to team up with Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts. Their experience in the market will assist our efforts to further promote our property to international levels.”
Since 2010 Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts has extended its Asian presence beyond Thailand and Vietnam, with new developments announced in China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and India. The recent opening of Moevenpick Heritage Hotel Sentosa in Singapore and Moevenpick Resort & Spa Cebu in Philippines indicate the strategic Asian expansion for the Swiss-based hotel company.
