Park Group to Manage First Thai Resort North of Phuket

Friday, October 31, 2014
PHUKET: Park Hotel Group has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Southeast Asia with two new management contracts.

The company has been appointed to manage a beachfront resort in Khao Lak, Thailand, and a hilltop resort in Bali, Indonesia.

The agreement signed with Southsea Group will see Park Hotel Group open its first property in Thailand, Park Hotel Khao Lak Beach Resort Phang Nga, in the first half of 2015.

Park Hotel Nusa Dua Bali is scheduled to commence operation in the first quarter of 2015.

Allen Law, Park Hotel Group's CEO said: ''Park Hotel Khao Lak Beach Resort Phang Nga and Park Hotel Nusa Dua Bali are important milestones for both our brand and for the group.

''As our group's first hotels in Thailand and Indonesia, both of which are influential and growing markets that we feel is of strategic importance. We're very excited to be entering Phang Nga and Bali; the former being a rapidly developing tourist destination is a stone's throw from the Phuket International Airport, while Bali remains one of Southeast Asia's leading tourist destinations.''

Park Hotel Khao Lak Beach Resort Phang Nga is located along Khao Lak's coast, with direct access to Pakarang Beach on the Andaman Sea. Set amid 2.3 hectares of lush tropical gardens, it is around an hour's drive from the Phuket International Airport.

Accommodation at Park Hotel Khao Lak Beach Resort Phang Nga will be available in the form of 125 Deluxe and Premier Rooms that range from 38sqm to 55sqm. All rooms will have a private balcony and beachfront sea views. Food and beverage offerings include two restaurants, a caf??, a bar and a lobby lounge. Other facilities include a spa, fitness centre and business centre.

''Khao Lak is a destination of growing popularity and with a lot of potential. We're very happy to have found the right partner. We remain focused on expanding the Grand Park and Park Hotel brand in Southeast Asia and other leading destinations globally,'' Mr Law added.

Park Hotel Nusa Dua Bali is located on hilltop in the popular precinct of Nusa Dua and offers magnificent views of the bay of Tanjung Benoa. Located 15 minutes from the Ngurah Rai International Airport, it is within easy access to the beaches of Nusa Dua, Tanjung Benoa, Uluwatu and the entertainment areas of Kuta and Jimbaran.

With a current portfolio of 10 properties across Singapore, China, Hong Kong and Japan, the two hotels increase the number of hotels under management to 12 and expand Park Hotel Group's reach to two new countries in Southeast Asia.

These additions to the group's upscale hotel portfolio come ahead of the Singapore openings: Park Hotel Alexandra in the second quarter of next year, and Park Hotel Farrer Park in 2016.

Hopefully the third (at least) rebranding of the South Sea Grand Resort and new management will bring more success and visitors to this beautiful part of Khao Lak.

Is this greenfield or brownfield development along the Laem Pakarang?

Sign up that man, Allen Law.
If he can "throw a stone" from Khao Lak to HKT I want him on my team.

If you read my comment you should realise that this resort is not a new development. It is an existing one that was constructed and in operation before the Tsunami and rebuilt afterwards but managed by different management companies or the owner group itself. Park is just another management company with a different brand name for the same resort, one of four on the same stretch of land fronting Laem Pakarang on the inland side of the beach road.
