IHG to Open Two New Hotels in Phuket

News InterContinental Hotels Group or IHG continues its expansion in South East Asia, namely, in Thailand. The popular hotelier will open two new hotels in Kata Beach, Phuket. This will be also the debut of two brands – the Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express – in the region. The hotels are set to open in 2022.

The new openings by IHG will be a part of large mixed-use development – The Beach Plaza Phuket. The complex in Kata Beach is located very close to the sea as it takes only five minutes to reach it. The Holiday Inn Express & Suites hotel in Phuket Kata Beach will have 135 rooms, and the second hotel – Holiday Inn Phuket Kata Beach – will have 134 rooms and will have a swimming pool, facilities for business guests, restaurants, and a gym. The properties will be open together with K.W. Group, a developer that has been working on the estate market of Phuket for decades.

IHG has very ambitious plans for its presence in Thailand as the country is a popular and established leisure and business destination. The hotelier plans to double the size of its portfolio in Thailand in the coming 3-5 years. The opening of two new hotels in 2022 is a part of this strategy. The Holiday Inn brand is perfectly suitable for guests in search of comfort and attentive service. These hotels are suitable for business and leisure guests. The Holiday Inn Express hotels offer affordable, simple, and comfortable rooms for travelers on the move.

After three decades of expertise in the hospitality market of Phuket, K.W. Group knows what travelers are searching for and what they need during their stay on the island. The company is sure that Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express are the right brands that fit the location. As Thailand welcomes a large number of tourists from all over the world every year, it is an advantage if Phuket hotels are managed by famous brands with global recognition.

The Beach Plaza Phuket is a new mixed-use development that is built in line with the new initiative of Thailand’s government that wants to make Phuket Asia’s leading wellness, tourism, and long-stay destination. Located approximately one hour by car from Phuket International Airport, Kata Beach is a popular destination that is suitable for solo travelers and families. The incredibly picturesque place with crystal clear water offers a range of water sports and various activities to keep tourists entertained.
