Five-star Meliá offering drops in Thailand

by | 08 Dec 2021 | Hotel Openings, Projects

Meliá Hotels International and Phuket Villa Group are celebrating the long-awaited opening of a stunningly serene property in South-East Asia.

Southern Thailand has been buoyed by the arrival of a luxury beachfront escape set in lush surroundings.

An idyllic tropical setting

The newly opened Meliá Phuket Mai Khao is a five-star resort fronting the Mai Khao Beach. At this prominent location in beautiful Phuket, guests are housed in a range of modern villas and suites.

Meliá Hotels International has hotels all over the world, but the common thread that binds them together is the marriage of Spanish hospitality with local touches. The combination of Mediterranean flair and Thai culture is exemplified here in the decidedly contemporary design aesthetic, where the villas and suites recall southern European architecture, and native plants help establish a real sense of place.

Impressive F&B and wellness programmes

Visitors are enveloped in an oasis of serenity throughout the Meliá-branded scheme, not least in the large courtyard area where tall trees surround the perimeter of a calming pool. There are a number of F&B outlets onsite as well, including the poolside Gaia Beach Club, all-day-dining restaurant Sasa and casual Elyxr Café.

The property looks set to become a haven for wellness aficionados thanks to its signature YHI Spa offering an array of treatments, which can also be delivered poolside and in-villa. Moreover, the state-of-the-art fitness centre is equipped with everything guests might need to keep fit while on holiday, and the grand ballroom and flexible function rooms can accommodate weddings and other events.

Meliá Phuket Mai Khao, which was launched by Meliá, is owned by real estate developer Phuket Villa Group.

“Through our partnership with Spain’s leading hotel group, we are thankful that we can significantly contribute to Phuket’s recovery in the wake of Covid19 by creating much-needed jobs for the local tourism sector and setting a new benchmark for hospitality on Thailand’s largest island,” said Maetapong Upatising, Phuket Villa Group managing director.
