November 30, 2016 // Franchising.com // InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has opened the doors to Holiday Inn Express Krabi Ao Nang Beach on the popular Ao Nang Beach in Krabi, Thailand.
Offering a refreshing, hassle-free and affordable stay for guests, the 218-room hotel marks the much anticipated debut of Holiday Inn Express, one of the largest and fastest growing hotel brands in the world, into Krabi.
A scenic 30-minute drive from Krabi International Airport or two-hour drive from Phuket International Airport will bring travellers to the breath-taking coastline of Ao Nang Beach, where Holiday Inn Express Krabi Ao Nang Beach is situated, adjacent to the existing Holiday Inn Resort Krabi Ao Nang Beach.
Amadeo Zarzosa, Vice President, Operations Resorts & Hotel Openings AMEA, IHG, commented: “Krabi is one of the most popular beachside destinations in Thailand, for both domestic and international travellers. Tourism growth in Thailand has shown a healthy increase year on year and we are glad to be able to introduce a new brand and property to a new destination in the country. Holiday Inn Express Krabi Ao Nang Beach offers the growing segment of smart leisure travellers everything they need and nothing they don’t, in a great location at a great price.”
Conveniently nestled amongst a plethora of restaurants, bars and streetfood options, guests are spoilt for choice with a wide selection of international and local cuisine, including some of the area’s most renowned seafood establishments that dish up exciting Thai flavours to delight curious palates. Guests seeking beach essentials and souvenirs are steps away from Holiday Beach Walk Shopping Plaza, while those looking to indulge in retail therapy can take a 10-minute walk to Ao Nang Centre.
