Hilton Garden Inn lands with a Bang in Thailand

by | 06 Jan 2022 | Projects

The debut of Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao, developed and managed by GCP Hospitality, marks the brand’s entry to one of South-East Asia’s most-visited countries.

Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao gives the brand a foothold in Thailand’s world-renowned tourism hotspot.

Hilton Garden Inn takes a punt on Phuket

Hilton Worldwide’s third property on the sun-soaked island of Phuket has opened its doors. Thailand’s first Hilton Garden Inn hotel is located near the popular Bang Tao Beach, and is within a stone’s throw of lots of local highlights, including shops, entertainment facilities and attractions like the Laguna Phuket Resort Complex and Boat Avenue.

The 177-key Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao is also just a 25-minute drive from the island’s international airport.

Jenny Milos, vice president of focused service and all suites brands, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said: “Being one of the strongest focused-service brands in the market, Hilton Garden Inn is rapidly growing throughout Asia Pacific with almost 50 operating hotels and 110 properties in the pipeline. With the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao, we look forward to serving the evolved preferences of modern travellers, expressed through the brand’s signature positive, upbeat service, its luminous spaces and modern amenities, and its stylish and approachable design delivered at an affordable price point.”

What to expect at Hilton’s latest outpost

The hotel offers guests two rooftop swimming pools, as well as a 24-hour fitness centre complete with LifeFitness equipment. The brand’s signature restaurant, Garden Grille & Bar, serves up local and international fare, while The Pool Bar on the roof offers delicious cocktails with panoramic views.

Paul Hutton, area vice president and head of South East Asia for Hilton said: “We are delighted to welcome our third Hilton hotel in Phuket with the opening of Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao, where our portfolio in Thailand now spans 14 distinctive hotels and resorts. Hilton Garden Inn’s brand entry to Phuket Island’s vibrant hospitality scene is testament to Hilton’s commitment to deliver exceptional hospitality experiences.”

The property was developed, and is managed, by GCP Hospitality.

Christophe Vielle, CEO and co-founder of GCP Hospitality, said: “The opening of Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao is especially significant for us. It marks the first and only Hilton Garden Inn hotel in Phuket and further confirms GCP Hospitality’s commitment to expand its hotel portfolio in Thailand.

“This hotel also serves as a promise from GCP Hospitality to bring world-class hospitality to some of the world’s most exciting destinations. Bang Tao is a location that perfectly marries nature with urban living – making it the perfect fit for travellers seeking to discover the best that Phuket has to offer.”
