Castle debuts with Thai double

The Castle Group has expanded into Thailand with two new luxury resorts, Katamanda in Phuket and Baan Taling Ngam Resort & Spa in Koh Samui. These two additions bring Castle Resorts & Hotels’ inventory count up to 26 properties throughout Hawaii, Micronesia, New Zealand and Thailand.

“Entering Thailand is an exciting new development of our company’s strategic expansion into Southeast Asia,” said Alan Mattson, president and chief operating officer of Castle Resorts & Hotels. “The consummation of these two management agreements in Thailand tops an incredibly successful year of growth for us. We plan to continue this aggressive expansion of our global presence from our Hawaii-based headquarters in 2008.”

In the past year, Castle Resorts & Hotels has acquired six management contracts. In 2007, Castle was also awarded contracts for Maile Sky Court, Queen Kapiolani Hotel and Ocean Resort Hotel Waikiki on Oahu; and the Hotel Santa Fe in Guam.
