Best Western Adds New Premier Resort in Phuket, Thailand

(Bangkok – January 12th, 2016): Best Western Hotels & Resorts has unveiled plans to open a new upscale resort on the ever-popular resort island of Phuket.

The company has penned an agreement to operate the brand new BEST WESTERN PREMIER Himalai Resort, which will rise in the idyllic Kamala area of the island.

Kamala Beach is a stunning stretch of golden sand, lapped by the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea on Phuket’s popular West Coast. Located just north of Patong, the island’s main tourist area, Kamala retains a quieter, more relaxed ambience, while also being just a short drive from a multitude of shopping malls, restaurants and vibrant nightlife venues.
BEST WESTERN PREMIER Himalai Resort will provide a total of 425 upscale rooms and suites, all featuring a selection of modern amenities including flat-screen TVs, universal power sockets, USB ports and complimentary Wi-Fi.

When they’re not relaxing on the sun-kissed sands of Kamala Beach, guests will be able to take a dip in the resort’s outdoor swimming pool, work out in the fitness center, or sample sumptuous local and international cuisine at the resort’s two food and beverage venues.
BEST WESTERN PREMIER Himalai Resort will also cater to corporate guests, with meeting facilities and a business center.

“Phuket continues to enchant the global travelers with its stunning sandy beaches and ever-expanding range of visitor attractions,” said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ Managing Director of International Operations - Asia.

“Following the successful launch of BEST WESTERN Patong Beach in 2014, which has already become a firm favorite with our guests, I am delighted to be able to announce our next stage of development on this magical tropical island.

“BEST WESTERN PREMIER Himalai Resort will be an exceptional upscale hotel in an idyllic setting, combining the very best of Thai hospitality with Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ world-famous international standards. I look forward to welcoming our first guests to this exciting new hotel in 2019,” Mr. Berrivin concluded.
Best Western Hotels & Resorts currently operates three properties in Phuket: BEST WESTERN Phuket Ocean Resort, BEST WESTERN PREMIER Bangtao Beach Resort & Spa and BEST WESTERN Patong Beach. These form part of a nationwide collection of 9 hotels and resorts across Thailand.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
