AccorHotels has signed an agreement with
Thailand-based real estate developer Khaolak Inter
to open a brand new 251-room Pullman Khao Lak Resort in 2021.
The resort is the group’s second partnership
with Khaolak Inter following the opening of Novotel Phuket Patong
“This partnership marks an important step for AccorHotels and we
are very excited to partner with Khaolak Inter Co., Ltd. to expand our portfolio in Southern Thailand with the Pullman brand. Pullman
represents global nomads of hyper-connected travellers and sophisticated explorers who enjoy combining work and pleasure,”
said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer AccorHotels Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.
Located just an
hour’s drive north of Phuket Island on the gorgeous Andaman
seaboard, Khao Lak is 80 kilometres north of Phuket International
Airport and just 1.5 hours by speedboat from the popular scuba and
snorkeling hotspots of
Surin and Similan Islands.
Designed by Tierra,
Design and Hypothesis, Pullman Khao Lak is situated on a
stretch of gentle-sloping beach near to the historical
heritage town of Ta Kua Pa.
The resort will feature 50 family suites
and a large kids club specially designed for guests travelling
with children. For couples and business travelers looking for a
peaceful getaway, the resort will also offer 7 private villas and an
adult-only infinity pool that overlooks the Andaman.
“We look forward to another exciting
partnership with AccorHotels with the launch of Pullman Khao Lak.
The resort offers travellers a gorgeous backdrop of the island’s
sunsets with stunning views of its surrounding nature that
showcases a rich historical local culture. The combined expertise
with AccorHotels will give us an opportunity to contribute to the
growth and development of the local community in the area.” said
Michael Choo, Director of Khaolak Inter Co., Ltd.
The resort will also feature meeting facilities,
three F&B outlets, three pools, a health and
fitness centre, a beach club and a spa.
