BANGKOK - Accor has announced the signing of its latest deal in Thailand with V Villas Phuket. The 24-pool villa resort will join the group's MGallery Hotel Collection, and is being developed on a hilltop in Ao Yon Beach, Phuket, about an hour by road from Phuket International Airport and 20 minutes from Phuket Town.
When completed, the resort will feature five dining outlets, a swimming pool and a spa & wellness centre.
"We are honoured to collaborate with our valued partners once again to introduce V Villas Phuket, following the success of V Villas Hua Hin and VIE Hotel Bangkok over the years. Synonymous to the V Villas vision and concept, V Villas Phuket seeks to offer guests exclusivity and privacy in each luxurious villa, each boasting spectacular views.
"The hotel is also an ideal fit for our MGallery brand as each hotel in the collection tells a unique story inspired by the destination. From bespoke design and sensorial mixology to wellbeing dedicated to self-care, MGallery guests are inspired and enriched through their delightful visits to these stylish, thoughtful and decidedly singular hotels," said Mr Patrick Basset, COO of Accor for Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.
"V Villas Phuket is destined to be an unforgettable destination with its privileged location high up on the hills overlooking the Ao Yon Bay in Southern Phuket. The hotel also provides direct access to one of the area's last hidden and beautiful secluded beaches. Like its sister property in Hua Hin, it will offer an unparalleled level of service and privacy including dedicated butler service.
"One standout feature will be the hotel's dining concept with a restaurant and outdoor deck facing the azure blue water and a roof top bar offering a 360 degree view 50 m above sea level for what promises to be a stunning sunset spot," added Mr Vichaya Poolvaraluk, owner of V Villas Phuket.
The cliff-side location of V Villas Phuket offers views across Chalong Bay and the hills of Ao Yon.
Accor has 89 hotels in Thailand, and 10 hotels are scheduled to open over the next five years. The group currently manages a portfolio of 36 hotels under the MGallery Hotel Collection across the Asia Pacific.
