Mandarin Oriental Phuket
Scheduled to open in 2022, the Mandarin Oriental Phuket will occupy 9.5 hectares of land in Laem Singh Bay on the west coast of Phuket island.
Laem Singh Beach is one of Phuket’s most beautiful beaches and hides on the west coast between Kamala and Surin beaches. Being nestled in a steep-sided bay, lined with nodding palm trees and dotted with giant boulders, it has the feel of a secret beach. It’s not a very well-kept secret, though, as it’s overlooked by a popular viewpoint along the coastal road.
The northern part of the beach is good for body-boarding. The swimming and snorkelling is excellent in the southern part, with loads of fish to see around the rocky headland which separates the beach from Kamala Bay.
The hotel’s 105 rooms, including 37 pool villas, will offer guests panoramic views of the Andaman Sea.
The site itself includes a white sand beach with rocky outcrops, providing excellent access for snorkelling and swimming.
The Mandarin Oriental Phuket facilities will include three restaurants and bars, a range of flexible function facilities, a spa, fitness centre and two outdoor swimming pools. A kid’s club and a host of outdoor leisure pursuits will also be available.
James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental said, “Phuket is one of Asia’s leading leisure destinations and we are delighted to have found such a special site on which to develop our resort. The group’s established reputation and experience in delivering award-winning service and facilities at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, when combined with this stunning new property, will provide guests a unique proposition for a luxury visit to the entrancing Kingdom of Thailand. We look forward to working with our partners to create this.”
The resort is around 30-minutes by car from Phuket International Airport.
