August 8, 2019 — Radisson Hotel Group today announced the signing of a new upscale Radisson property in Thailand, located on Phuket’s sunset coast, in partnership with Thai-Chinese Property Holdings.
Scheduled to open in Q1, 2023, Radisson Phuket Mai Khao Beach is strategically located on the island’s northwest shore, with direct access to Mai Khao Beach – an 11km-long stretch of sand overlooking the Andaman Sea. Just 15 minutes’ drive from Phuket International Airport, this destination is also easily accessible.
Radisson Phuket Mai Khao Beach will feature 222 contemporary rooms and suites, ranging from the spacious 35 square meter Superior Rooms to the expansive 132 square meter Two-bedroom Suites. A collection of ground floor rooms will offer direct access to the property’s relaxing outdoor pool, and more than 20 of the rooms and suites will feature private pools.
In addition to the large outdoor lagoon pool, which covers 491 square meters, Radisson Phuket Mai Khao Beach will feature a well-equipped fitness center, a kid’s club and dining options, including a vibrant all-day dining destination, a specialty restaurant and a lobby lounge. The property will also be able to host events, with a choice of two meeting rooms, a business center and professional support making this a delightful venue for corporate retreats.
Under a sale and leaseback arrangement, investors will be able to purchase units at Radisson Phuket Mai Khao Beach, providing exclusive privileges and a memorable vacation destination. The units will be put into a mandatory rental program, while the operations of the property will be managed by Radisson Hotel Group, enabling investors to benefit from the group’s global distribution reach.
