New Resort in Phuket - Indigo Pearl - Opens for Business

Travel News Asia Monday, 4 December 2006

The Indigo Pearl, a unique new luxury resort featuring contemporary Asian design inspired by the historic 100-year-old tin mining industry of Thailand's paradise island of Phuket, officially opened to guests on Friday.

To celebrate its opening, the Indigo Pearl is offering a special rate of US$188 which includes accommodation in a Pearl Bed room, buffet breakfast in Tin Mine and return airport transfers. The introductory offer is valid until 21 December 2006.

The Indigo Pearl is located on Nai Yang Beach on Phukets Northwest shore, just 10 minutes from Phuket International Airport.

It is great to have Indigo Pearl open after months of planning and preparation. Weve had a fantastic response so far with the resort already full over Christmas and many guests now booked in for 2007, said General Manager Anthony Ross, former general manager of the stylish Sentosa Resort and Spa in Singapore.

The US$21 million fusion of modern architecture and Thai tradition was designed by world-renowned architect, interior and landscape designer Bill Bensley.

Everything down to the finest detail fits in with the theme of tin mining, extending through every facet of the resort, from the names of the restaurants and bars to the staff uniforms, commented Bill Bensley.

The 277 luxurious rooms and suites are scattered in an enclave of lagoons and jungle and in keeping with high-tech modern demands have access to high-speed wireless internet links, satellite TV, 24-hour room service and IDD telephone.

With eight food and beverage outlets, the resort on a secluded Andaman Sea beachfront with its own private beach club also aims to serve the best crowd-pulling Sunday brunch in Phuket.

At the helm is Executive Chef Dion McGrath, a New Zealander joining from the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo with extensive experience of international cuisine from a decade as a top chef in Hong Kong.

Apart from familiar facilities such as swimming pools, tennis courts and a childrens club, Indigo Pearl also offers several specialist recreational options -- including a cooking school, scuba-diving centre, fitness and meditation pavilion, and a snooker hall with its own bar serving fine whiskies from around the world.

Just minutes from Sirinath National Park, Indigo Pearl is also targeting the meetings and incentive (MICE) market, with its historic infrastructure accommodating a large Conference Pavilion for up to 900 delegates - including a 600sqm Grand Ballroom and nine adjoining meeting rooms.
