Newly opened just steps from the seafront, JonoX Phuket Karon from Jono Hotels removes unnecessary hotel hassle and creates seamless stays for modern nomads, from Gen X to Gen Z or anyone in between.
Are you seeking a new way to stay, play, relax and recharge that delivers the benefits of a world-class hotel while getting rid of all the nonsense that can hold you back and drive you crazy? The wait is over; Jono Hotels (whose name derives from “Journey of the Nomad”) is here to keep you connected, make you smile and put the spirit of discovery back into your travels.
The world’s first Jono Hotel has opened in Karon Beach, the chic seafront enclave on Phuket’s sunset coast. Jono is an innovative and new lifestyle brand, which focuses on making life easier – whether you identify as Gen X, Gen Z or anyone in between. Like that reliable friend you invite on your trip, JonoX Phuket Karon has got your back. They aim to make every vacation fun, casual and carefree while using cutting-edge tech to put the entire destination at your fingertips, irrespective of whether you are there for work or play, young or old or on a short break or a long vacation.
“At Jono Hotels, we understand that the world has moved forward and the needs of travellers have changed. As a new player in the market, we can take a fresh approach to hospitality that does away with those annoying, inefficient practices of the past and shapes the entire experience around the needs of you, our guests. Personal and playful, smart and social, innovative and insightful, we want to make every stay completely seamless.
Like the warm and welcoming sea breeze that drifts off the Andaman Sea, JonoX Phuket Karon will be a breath of fresh air for modern explorers,” revealed Björn Richardson, Senior Vice President – Hospitality and Property Operations at Boutique Corporation PLC.
Set in the heart of the action, just a short stroll from the soft, sandy beach, JonoX Phuket Karon provides everything you need for a rewarding adventure without any unnecessary fuss. The property has 121 guestrooms, which range in size from the stylish 21-square metre Recharge Rooms, with plush king or twin bedding, to the more spacious 35-square metre RechargeX Rooms, which also offer bunk beds for youngsters.
It has a clean, contemporary design and intuitive amenities such as Smart TVs, high-speed Wi-Fi, walk-in power showers, kettles and more, allowing guests to take it easy to cut loose.
The hotel has also embraced the convenience of app technology so guests can forget the long waits at receptions and simply press “0” for the operator. The hotel’s dedicated app lets guests talk to the front desk in their native language, order room service, make travel arrangements, book activities, and more from their smartphone.
It also boasts a sparkling rooftop infinity pool, which will be the ideal place to rise above the crowds and chill out in style. The pool area also includes a separate area for children to splash, while a colourful kids’ playroom is available when parents need a break. Freshly-made local and international cuisine can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch and dinner at 360 Restaurant, and Altitude Rooftop Bar is open throughout the day and late into the night, letting guests socialise together and sip cool cocktails.
For executives and entrepreneurs, the new hotel has an intimate meeting room which can host up to ten people. The room has integrated audio-visual equipment to bring your presentations to life and solid doors that keep sound out. It is a private room that also doubles as a co-working space, making it perfect for the new generation of digital nomads.
