Marriott International has signed with Asset World Corporation (AWC) to introduce The Ritz-Carlton to Phuket, Thailand.
The existing Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa, Phuket will undergo renovation and be rebranded as The Ritz-Carlton, Phuket when it opens in 2025.
The new hotel will offer 182 guestrooms, suites, and private villas, eight F&B options, three swimming pools, spa, fitness centre, and four function rooms.
The property is located on the east coast of the island overlooking the Andaman Sea, just a short distance from Phuket’s old town.
Rajeev Menon, president, Asia Pacific (excluding China), Marriott International, said: “We are confident that The Ritz-Carlton, Phuket, once opened, will be well-positioned to meet the increased demand of luxury travel to the destination, in line with the Thailand Government’s goal of attracting more discerning travellers to the Thai Kingdom.”
“The launch of The Ritz-Carlton, Phuket will add to AWC’s portfolio of hotels in Phuket, which meet the needs of a diverse range of travellers,” said Wallapa Traisorat, CEO and president, AWC.
Other hotels under AWC include the Courtyard by Marriott Phuket Town, and Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa Nai Yang Beach.
