Minor Hotels has signed a management agreement with Phuket Boat Lagoon Co. to rebrand the existing Boat Lagoon Resort in Phuket to NH Boat Lagoon Phuket Resort, marking the arrival of NH Hotels to Thailand and the brand’s Asia debut.
The rebranding process will be completed in phases, and is set to open in mid-2023.
The 271-key NH Boat Lagoon Phuket Resort will be located on the east coast of Phuket, in the heart of Boat Lagoon, Phuket’s first full-service marina. There will be a mix of rooms and serviced apartments, alongside facilities such as an all-day dining restaurant, lobby café, swimming pool with a bar, gym, tennis court and a kids’ club.
Long-stay guests can enjoy the range of local shops and conveniences nearby, including Villa Market, restaurants and entertainment facilities including an ice-skating rink.
The resort will also cater to the business events market, and offer extensive meeting and event facilities such as a business centre, and a 1,000m2 marquee for large events.
Dillip Rajakarier, group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels, said: “We look forward to working together to further position the property as a key leisure and MICE destination in Phuket, as well as driving the high-potential long-stay segment.”
Acquired by Minor Hotels in 2018, NH Hotels has an existing portfolio of over 330 hotels in 30 countries across Europe and the Americas.
