Wyndham Makes Grand Entrance into South East Asia
Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay boosts hospitality giant’s portfolio in Thailand.
September 07, 2016 // Franchising.com // PHUKET, THAILAND – South East Asia’s inaugural Wyndham Grand® location will debut in Phuket later this year, thanks to a management agreement recently signed between Parisorn Company Ltd and the world’s largest hospitality company, Wyndham Hotel Group.
Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay is expected to open just north of Patong Beach in November offering stylish rooms for hotel guests. CLUB WYNDHAM ASIA®, a part of the Wyndham Vacation Ownership business, has also signed an agreement subject to specified requirements which once complete, will give CLUB WYNDHAM ASIA members access to luxurious apartments at the resort.
Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay’s 214 rooms and facilities are carefully designed to highlight its stunning locale nestled on the edge of a cliff which boasts sweeping views of the Andaman Sea. The resort is a stone’s throw away from Phuket’s vibrant entertainment precinct yet just far enough to enjoy only the sounds of peaceful waves rolling into shore.
The Wyndham Grand brand is decidedly not pretentious, but approachable by design. With local culture and style infused into every hotel and resort around the globe, guests can enjoy the grand things in life including pristine guestrooms, relaxing spas and one-of-a-kind dining experiences.
Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said, “Wyndham Grand hotels are located in some of the world’s most sought after destinations, including Shanghai, Istanbul, Chicago and now Phuket. The brand’s premium offerings and distinctive experiences create a perfect platform to deliver our unique mixed-use model to travellers looking for an approachable take on luxurious travel in Thailand.”
“This mixed-use development model is unique to Wyndham Hotel Group and our vacation ownership business arm. We are committed to growing our vacation ownership portfolio in Asia and I am sure our CLUB WYNDHAM ASIA members will appreciate this new luxurious option for their future travels,” Mr. Robinson added.
“Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay will be ideal for both business and leisure travellers looking for a stylish stay in Phuket. Our luxurious pool villas with private infinity pools will be well suited to the growing luxury travel market,” said Khun Sumit Soontornnont, Co-owner of Parisorn Company Ltd.
"We are extremely proud of what we have been able to accomplish with our latest project, Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay. Not only does the property boast the largest number of pool villas in the Kalim-Patong area, the views are stunning and the overall property is spectacular. I could not be more grateful to work with Wyndham, the world's largest and best hospitality company” added Khun Sitikorn Soontornnont, Managing Director of Parisorn Company Ltd.
“It is an honour to be working with Wyndham, their expertise in the area of both hotel management and vacation ownership gives them a unique edge which is well positioned with our long term strategy for the hotel. We are confident that under their management, Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay will be a leading resort for holiday-makers and business travellers in the country,” said Khun Prasit Chinprasert, Co-owner of Parisorn Company Ltd.
Phuket is a top tourism destination not only in Thailand but in the larger Asia Pacific region; the island is renowned for its beautiful white sand beaches, a wide array of water activities, dining experiences, world-class golf courses and cultural excursions. The island received 28.36 million arrivals in 2015, and tourism growth is anticipated with new infrastructure projects underway including an airport expansion.
The resort’s luxurious 214 guestrooms will bring the outdoors in by illuminating its plush setting and spectacular sea views. The 48m 2 standard rooms will offer guests the luxury of space together with plush furnishings and a full suite of in-room amenities. Each of the resort’s 152 pool villas, the most in the Kalim-Patong area, will feature a private outdoor sundeck and a six- or nine-metre infinity pool overlooking the ocean, providing guests with privacy and seclusion as well as ultimate comfort and relaxation.
Dining at Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay will be a multisensorial experience with two restaurants serving authentic Thai cuisine and international favourites amidst breathtaking sea views. Extensive leisure facilities will include two outdoor swimming pools overlooking the sea, a spa offering traditional Thai therapies, a well-equipped gymnasium, and a kids club. A picture-perfect venue for events, Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay’s ballroom will feature high ceilings and expansive glass panels to provide a versatile backdrop to suit both extravagant gala dinners and casual business meetings.
