Marriott is to introduce its upscale, deluxe Marriott lodging brand to Phuket in 2008 with a 202-room resort under a management agreement with Kamala Bay Terrace Co, Ltd., a subsidiary of Destination Properties. The Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa at Kamala Cove is the 11th hotel Marriott currently has under construction in Thailand and the fifth that it is developing with Destination Properties.

The boutique-like, 202-room Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa at Kamala Cove is a conversion of the Kamala Terrace Resort which originally opened in 1993. The hotel was closed in 2005 and is currently undergoing a major renovation and expansion. Given its location south of Kamala Beach, the hotel will have easy access to the array of attractions offered by Phuket, arguably one of the worlds most appealing holiday destinations.

We are thrilled by the rapid expansion of our lodging brands not only throughout Thailand, but specifically in Phuket, said Ed Fuller, president & managing director of international lodging for Marriott. Phuket is the largest and most-visited island in Thailand. When this resort opens, it will be our fifth property and third hotel brand on Phuket which positions us to offer travelers a lodging choice in the luxury, upscale and upper-moderate tiers.

Located on a hill south of Kamala Beach, the Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa at Kamala Cove will provide unobstructed, panoramic views of the Andaman Sea and will boast many rooms with large terraces, most of which will offer either a plunge pool, an outdoor Jacuzzi or a personal pool. Guest rooms will have Marriotts renowned plush bed and bath linens, flat screen TVs, internet access and in-room safes.

For dining and entertainment, the resort will have two restaurants, one of which will be an all-day casual outlet offering a grand buffet and the other will offer specialty dining.

Additionally, the resort will have an open lobby lounge featuring elements of Marriotts Great Room concept and a pool bar.

Recreational amenities will include the largest swimming pool in Phuket, a spa offering eight treatment rooms; a fitness center with a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi; a lap pool and a childrens pool; a recreation pavilion with a library and games room. Other amenities will include a gift shop and a business center.

For social events and conferences, the Phuket Marriott Resort & Spa at Kamala Cove will have 345 square meters of space comprised of the following: a 225-square meter ballroom which will be divisible into two section and three individual meeting rooms, each measuring 40 square meters.
