InterContinental Phuket Resort celebrates soft opening

The InterContinental Phuket Resort has welcomed its first paying guest in a multi-religious ceremony.

Scheduled to open officially on September 1, the new resort offers a collection of 221 rooms and villas on Kamala Beach, also known as the Millionaire’s Mile.

The expansive Club InterContinental lounge experience features a second-floor beach vista frontage, indoor and outdoor dining areas as well as a large private sundeck and infinity pool. Other facilities include five swimming pools all with breath-taking views.

The resort’s four restaurants and bars are committed to sustainability and respect for local farmers using traditional recipes with a modern touch.

“Being the world’s first luxury hotel brand founded 70 years ago, we are delighted to continue this pioneering spirit by introducing the InterContinental Life to Phuket,” said Bjorn Courage, general manager of InterContinental Phuket Resort.

“Rooted in Thai traditions and craftsmanship, InterContinental Phuket Resort brings discerning travellers on a multi-sensory journey that will heighten curiosity about this beloved beach destination and inspire the kind of memorable experiences that guests expect from InterContinental Hotels and Resorts.”
