INTERCONTINENTAL Hotels Group's (IHG) boutique brand will see a second property coming up in Thailand, with the Hotel Indigo Phuket Naithon Beach Resort opening on June 1, 2014.
Located 15 minutes from the airport, the resort will feature 120 rooms and 15 villas, with facilities such as an all-day dining restaurant and bar, swimming pool and spa.
IHG will manage the resort on behalf of owner and operator, Tiansin Property Development Co.
Said IHG Asia Australasia managing director Jan Smits: “Globally, we are aggressively expanding Hotel Indigo’s distribution – our focus is on bringing our newest and fast-growing Hotel Indigo brand into markets where there is demand, with current developments in key cities like New York, Hong Kong and Bangkok, where the first Hotel Indigo in Thailand will be located.”
There are 38 Hotel Indigos worldwide and the brand continues to expand in major cities such as Madrid, Vancouver, Mexico City, Glasgow and Liverpool. In Asia-Pacific, Hotel Indigo made its debut late last year in Shanghai, and will soon see openings in Taipei and Bangkok, among others.
Hotel Indigo targets upscale travellers, and each hotel is inspired by its local neighbourhood.
