unique in its concepts and design but it has also managed to keep a traditional Thai flair to it. No wonder it is already received many accredited

With the current worldwide situation we all have to put our efforts together to drive more traffic to Thailand, and distinctive destination resorts
such as Indigo Pearl help establish Phuket as one of the leading tourism destinations in the world. I very much look forward to working closely
with everyone in the resort and to take it to the next level.”
