BANGKOK, THAILAND – Accor, the largest international hotel operator in Southeast Asia, has announced that one of Phuket’s largest and most popular beachfront resorts will soon be rebranded as Pullman Phuket Arcadia Karon Beach Resort, introducing inspiring and energising premium hotel experiences to one of Asia’s most desirable destinations.
Scheduled to open in April 2023, Pullman Phuket Arcadia Karon Beach Resort is nestled in 75 acres of lush gardens, directly on the soft, sandy shores of the Andaman Sea. A phased renovation project will take place over the next 24 months to modernise the resort in line with Pullman’s brand markers that are centred around immersive art and design, technology-enabled spaces and wellbeing.
The resort comprises 662 rooms and suites, ranging from 44 to 170 square metres and all featuring private balconies with garden or sea views. This makes it ideal for every type of stay, from couples’ escapes and immersive family vacations to rewarding business breaks and balanced work and play. The resort will introduce a number of experiences amongst the expansive grounds, with a focus on activities for families and MICE guests.
Guests can dine and indulge at eight diverse restaurants and bars, including a beach club, relax in a choice of three swimming pools, unwind at the spa, play tennis on floodlit outdoor courts, or work out at the fitness centre. A kid’s club will also provide a full range of activities for youngsters. Event organisers will be able to achieve peak performance with some of Phuket’s best meeting facilities, including a ballroom, five flexible function spaces and outdoor event venues, plus a business centre. These facilities are immersed in one of the largest tropical grounds in Phuket and one of the longest beachside frontages of any resort on the island.
“Pullman Phuket Arcadia Karon Beach Resort will undoubtedly become a dynamic and stylish destination for energizing travellers and new entrepreneurs with its unsurpassed seafront setting, vibrant facilities, and distinctive dining concepts. Pullman is a pioneering travel brand with a remarkable 150-years of history. Today, it is the world’s leading contemporary premium hotel brand, with an extensive portfolio of addresses across the world. We look forward to working alongside our owner partners as we embark on the next chapter of this legendary resort,” said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer for Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea.
Pullman Phuket Arcadia Karon Beach Resort is perfectly positioned on Phuket’s sunset coast of the spectacular Karon Beach. It is located less than 10km from the restaurants and nightlife of the popular Patong Beach, 17km from Phuket’s heritage-rich old town, and 48km from Phuket International Airport.
Accor is the largest hotel operator in Thailand with a network of 87 hotels and resorts across key destinations. Pullman Phuket Arcadia Karon Beach Resort will become the third Pullman hotel in Phuket.
