AccorHotels signs a Pullman in Khao Lak
22 June 2018
AccorHotels has signed an agreement with Thailand-based real estate developer, Khaolak Inter Co Ltd, to manage a new 251-room hotel, due to open 2021 and branded Pullman Khao Lak Resort.
The resort will be the hotel group’s second partnership with the real estate developer following the opening of Novotel Phuket Patong in 1996.
Differentiating from its neighbouring resort island of Phuket, the coastal resort town of Khao Lak is recognised for its quiet beaches, offshore islands and national parks.
The scuba diving and snorkelling hotspots of Surin and Similan islands are a 90-minute transfer by speedboat.
The resort will have 50 family suites and a large kids club. For couples and business travellers looking for a peaceful getaway, the resort will also have seven private villas and an adult-only infinity pool that will overlook the Andaman Sea.
Khao Lak is 80 km north of Phuket International Airport and should ongoing plans for a second airport on the mainland province of Phang Nga materialise, the resort will be considerably closer to an international airport.
