HONG KONG—Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the official opening of the 199-room Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort, located in one of Southeast Asia’s premier resort locations. Developed by Kamala Bay Ventures—which through its affiliates also owns Park Hyatt Siem Reap and Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa—Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort is the first Hyatt-branded property in Phuket and the second Hyatt resort in Thailand, following Hyatt Regency Hua Hin.
“Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort is strategically located in one of Southeast Asia’s top holiday and tourist spots, which will establish Hyatt’s brand presence in this highly sought after resort market,” said Larry Tchou, group president of Asia Pacific, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “Our Hyatt Regency properties aim to create a distinct experience for guests by catering to their individual needs and allowing them to connect and recharge, all while incorporating the localness of their destination.”
Situated on the west coast—10 minutes from both the beachside restaurants of Surin and the nightlife of Patong, yet only 40 minutes from the international airport—Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort is nestled on a terraced hillside overlooking the beach of Kamala Cove. From almost every vantage point of the property, guests can enjoy unobstructed views of the Andaman Sea.
Sunset Grill is the resort’s signature restaurant offering both indoor and outdoor dining, focusing on daily sourced local sustainable products, market-fresh vegetables, seafood, seasonal selections, and prime meats served from its show kitchen. Meanwhile, overlooking the pool, The Pool House offers all-day dining of authentic Thai and Italian cuisine where Executive Chef Alessandro Martinelli brings 15 years of culinary experience to create authentic Italian cuisine with local products. In addition, The Pool Bar is where guests can enjoy the sunset and cocktails accompanied by tracks from the resident DJ.
The resort also offers a fitness center, equipped with strength and cardiovascular machines; a 235-square-foot infinity pool overlooking the beach; and Nahm Spa, which houses eight private spa suites.
While parents are occupied, children can enjoy the facilities of Camp Hyatt, equipped with a full range of games, toys, and electronic entertainment, or take part in a variety of activities, such as collecting shells, playing in the sand, and visiting a local worm farm.
Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort offers more than 4,300 square feet of meeting and conference facilities, including a pillar-free ballroom, a spacious pre-function area, three multi-functional rooms, and a boardroom.
