As Phuket expands its retail and lifestyle attractions, the “upper midscale” brand from Radisson Hotel Group enters the downtown area.
Park Inn by Radisson, the “upper midscale” brand from Radisson Hotel Group, will make its debut in Thailand with the launch of a brand new hotel in downtown Phuket.
Phuket welcomed a record 8.4 million international visitors in 2017, making it Thailand’s most popular resort destination. The island’s expanding international airport hosts travellers from around the globe and remains a favourite for Nordic visitors.
Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2020, the three-floor Park Inn by Radisson Phuket Town will form part of a mixed-use development featuring shops and dining outlets.
It will feature “at least” 130 contemporary rooms offering complimentary Wi-Fi, while facilities will include a restaurant and fitness centre.
The hotel group promises easy access to shopping malls such as the Central Festival Phuket, the King Power Duty Free Store and Blu Pearl, the Mall Group’s multi-billion-baht lifestyle development which features multiple retail outlets, a water park, convention centre and theatre.
Temples, museums and the classical architecture of Phuket Town, along with the resort’s famous coastal attractions, are “also just moments away”, Radisson Hotel Group says.
“Phuket is famous for its stunning beaches, but an increasing number of visitors are now being attracted by the island’s retail and lifestyle offerings,” comments Chairat Mepremwattana, managing director of the Multi Property Development Co.
“Park Inn by Radisson Phuket Town will be well suited to this segment, including shoppers, business travellers and culture seekers.”
The hotel will be the brand’s fourth location in Southeast Asia, following Park Inn by Radisson Davao and Park Inn by Radisson Clark in the Philippines, and Park Inn by Radisson Putrajaya in Malaysia.
