Outrigger Hotels and Resorts will take over management of Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and Spa, taking its Thailand portfolio to three properties.
Outrigger assumed full sales and marketing responsibility for the resort on 3 November, and will have complete operational control by 1 November 2012. The resort will continue to operate under its current name, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and Spa, until November next year, at which time it will be rebranded as “Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and Spa”.
Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and Spa has 112 villas, four restaurants, two bars, a spa, fitness centre, and a dive and activity centre. Thirty-eight new villas will be built over the next year, bringing the total number of villas in the resort to 150. Renovations worth US$1.7 million will be made to the property to align it with Outrigger’s brand standards prior to the resort’s relaunch as Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and Spa next year.
