Accor’s MGallery Hotel Collection is making a splash in the popular Thai destination with a stunning offering that takes full advantage of its pristine setting.
V Villas Phuket – MGallery, overlooking the Andaman Sea, offers guests a choice of idyllic private enclaves that are paradise personified. Melting into the landscape, this resort is the ultimate tropical getaway.
Island dreams in Phuket
Thailand has long been a magnet for travellers from all over the world, and now French hospitality giant Accor has given local and international guests another reason to visit one of its most popular destinations, Phuket. MGallery Hotel Collection’s latest outpost, V Villas Phuket – MGallery, is perched atop a hill on the jaw-dropping southern tip of the island, and boasts 19 private villas that blend the boundaries between inside and out.
Guests can choose between one-, three- or four-bedroom villas – each with their very own private infinity pool and deck – that overlook the glittering expanse of the Andaman Sea beyond.
Garth Simmons, chief executive officer of Accor for Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said: “The opening of our third MGallery resort in Phuket is testament to our confidence that travellers will continue to seek out more authentic and meaningful experiences. The MGallery collection now boasts more than 100 addresses globally, each one singularly captivating and unique in its own right, for a truly boutique experience.
“MGallery guests are inspired through their visits to these stylish, thoughtful and decidedly singular hotels, so we are delighted to unveil this new destination in Phuket for those seeking a truly serene experience overlooking the Andaman Sea. We know that the privacy and natural beauty of V Villas Phuket – MGallery will be a drawcard for many explorers as the world reopens.”
A holistic hospitality experience
V Villas Phuket – MGallery aims to give guests a truly holistic hospitality experience. In the design, the lush vegetation that characterises the area has been highlighted, and greenery abounds throughout the villa resort.
Every opportunity to frame views and dissolve walls has been taken, moreover, giving a fluidity and lightness to the spaces. And the materials used for the interiors of the private and public areas reflect the natural setting, and muted, calming tones mean that the bright blue sky and sparkling azure sea are the main focal points for the eye.
Onsite, there’s a choice of two F&B options – the Yon|Ocean House restaurant, with its three distinct dining spaces, and AKOYA|Star Lounge, a rooftop bar from where the spectacular sunsets can be fully appreciated. Meanwhile, those seeking some rest and relaxation need look no further than V Villas Spa, and beach lovers will delight in the white sands of Ao Yon Beach below, accessible via a hidden path that meanders down the hillside.
General manager Pannaphat Lapa said: “V Villas Phuket – MGallery will offer guests a new way to experience Phuket.
“Every detail of the resort is in harmony with nature, sunlight and ocean views. Its cliffside location will make guests feel like floating above Ao Yon Bay. Our butlers are dedicated to meeting guests’ every desire and making their holiday memorable.
“We are truly excited to welcome guests for a singular experience rooted in nature and absolute indulgence.”
