Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 9 July 2009

The Baan Taling Ngam beach resort in Koh Samui, Thailand, has invested a further 90 million Baht to continue an upgrade programme it first initiated in late 2008.

The new investment will be spent over the coming months to complete a modernization programme of the guest rooms, villas, public areas and other guest services.

Specific plans include:

▪ Construction of a 150 metre pier with facilities for dining, non motorized water sports, visiting yachts and an on site diving school.

▪ New in-room soft furnishings, and upgrading of all bathrooms

▪ New restaurant concepts
▪ New retail delicatessen and boutique
▪ In room interactive T.V.
▪ New fitness centre

All of the above are expected to be completed without any disruption to guests or existing services.

The resort has already completed a 40 million baht upgrade of guest support systems, including free high speed Wi-Fi internet access for all guests throughout the resort, installation of the latest version of Fidelio Opera reservations system, and purchasing new golf carts for guest transportation around the resort.

Televisions are also being replaced with the latest LCD flat screens with full HD and digital surround sound.

Nearly 1.2 kilometers of wooden railings throughout the resort will have been replaced by the end of July to ensure that Baan Taling Ngam is 100% compliant with the very strict health and safety requirements of the UK and European Union.

While many resorts on Koh Samui are now cutting back on investment plans, we are actually heading in the opposite direction and have embarked on the next stage of a major programme designed to upgrade the hotel, said veteran British hotelier, Nigel Tovey, General Manager of the Baan Taling Ngam. We believe in the future of Ko Samui as an outstanding holiday destination and were showing this by putting our money where our mouth is.
