IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) has signed a management agreement with KW Group to open the hotels in 2022 at The Beach Plaza Phuket, the largest mixed-use development in Kata Beach, located just five minutes from the sea.
Holiday Inn Phuket Kata Beach will have 134 rooms and offer guests a range of dining options and meeting facilities as well as a swimming pool and gym. Holiday Inn Express & Suites Phuket Kata Beach will bring another 135 rooms.
Serena Lim, vice president of Development for IHG, South East Asia and Korea, said:
“We remain on track to double the size of our mainstream estate across the Kingdom in the next three to five years and the combined strength of this partnership will ensure we deliver on our brands’ promise and delight guests when the two hotels open in 2022.”
IHG said the Beach Plaza exemplifies the government’s new vision to position Phuket as a leading tourism, wellness and long-stay destination in Asia.
IHG has 19 hotels under its Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express brands in Thailand, with another 16 due to open in the next three to five years.
