PHUKET: South East Asia’s inaugural Wyndham Grand location will debut in Phuket later this year, thanks to a management agreement recently signed between Parisorn Company Ltd and the Wyndham Hotel Group. Wyndham Grand Phuket Kalim Bay is set to open in November 2016 CLUB Wyndham ASIA, a segment of Wyndham Vacation Ownership, has also signed an agreement subject to specified requirements which once complete, will give CLUB Wyndham ASIA members access to luxurious apartments at the resort.
The resort’s 214 rooms and facilities are carefully designed to highlight its locale nestled on the edge of a cliff which boasts sweeping views of the Andaman Sea.
The company’s PR for the resort says the 48m2 (516.7 sq. ft.) standard rooms will offer guests the luxury of space together with plush furnishings and a full suite of in-room amenities.
Each of the resort’s 152 pool villas, the most in the Kalim-Patong area, will feature a private outdoor sundeck and a six- or nine-metre infinity pool overlooking the ocean, providing guests with privacy and seclusion as well as ultimate comfort and relaxation. According to Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim, the mixed-use development model is unique to Wyndham Hotel Group and their vacation ownership business arm.
He added that they are committed to growing their vacation ownership portfolio in Asia. Still under construction, the renderings for the project look pretty enticing. At any rate, it looks like Wyndham is ready to provide some competition for Absolute Resorts and Anantara?
