Mövenpick opens second Thai property
Dubai, May 13, 2011
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts said it has inked a deal to manage the 39-Residence The Palm Beach Club, which has been rebranded as Mövenpick Residences Laguna Beach Phuket.
The property will ideally complement the Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket, the first property the company opened in Thailand in 2006, said a company statement.
Mövenpick 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.
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.
The resort features luxurious penthouses and two and three-bedroom suites, all blending the best of Thai and contemporary design.
'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 Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East & Asia.
'We have plans to increase our portfolio in the country and to operate six hotels in Thailand by 2014,' he added.
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.
Guido Karl Wenk, owner of Diamond Management Company and property owner said, 'We are delighted to team up with Mövenpick. Their experience in the market will assist our efforts to further promote our property to international levels.'
Since 2010 Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has extended its Asian presence beyond Thailand and Vietnam, with new developments announced in China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and India.-TradeArabia News Service
