COMO Hotels & Resorts will develop and manage a new property in Phuket. Located on Phang Nga Bay, on the island’s northeast coast, the new property will become the Singapore-based COMO’s ninth portfolio addition and its second in Thailand, following the Metropolitan in Bangkok. Opening is scheduled for September 2012.
The new property will feature 129 rooms, a 100-metre swimming pool, a COMO Shambhala Retreat with yoga studio, two restaurants and a private beach.
“The addition of this Phuket property is aligned with COMO Hotels & Resorts’ expansion plans within the region, supporting our growth strategy to include key destinations within the COMO portfolio,” said Harry Apostolides, COMO’s Vice President of Business Development.
“Phuket is one of the top tourist destinations in the region and we have focused on its east coast – an area of outstanding natural beauty and great biodiversity. The location perfectly frames the COMO experience of service and cuisine, complemented by a wellness focus delivered by our award-winning COMO Shambhala Retreat,” he added.
