Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s global portfolio of 31 extraordinary hotel brands, has officially opened the doors to Le Méridien Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort. This newly updated property aims to introduce a new era of culturally infused hospitality to Phuket’s stunning sunset coast.
Nestled in the golden sands of Mai Khao Beach and surrounded by the natural beauty of Sirinat National Park, the Le Meridien Phuket Mai Khao Beach resort provides a serene tropical hideaway for guests to unwind in style.
On the announcement of the property’s official opening, Jakob Helgen, Marriott International’s Area Vice President for Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmar, said, “We are delighted to start welcoming guests to Le Méridien Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort as we continue to introduce our industry-leading brands to Thailand’s most desirable destinations.
With its stunning seafront location and outstanding facilities for couples, families and out-of-town events, this sophisticated resort is set to become a popular choice for domestic and international travellers who want to discover a different side of this popular island.”
The newly refurbished property, which also benefits from a rebranding, is inspired by the era of glamorous travel. It features 244 bright and inviting rooms and suites ranging from 41 to 110 square metres in size, in a contemporary local style design, with every room having a balcony or terrace and views of the gardens, pool or sea.
In addition, a selection of family rooms with bunk beds are available, and the newly reimagined resort has also introduced brand-new pool access rooms, private cabana rooms, two-bedroom suites and private pool suites.
The resort features an outdoor lagoon pool, a children’s fun pool, a kids’ club and plenty of outdoor activities. Travellers will also have direct access to Mai Khao Beach, which set the stage for beachfront yoga and water sports such as paddle-boarding and kayaking. After a fun-filled day, the beach serves as the perfect spot to sit back and admire the evocative Andaman sunsets.
Throughout their stay, guests can grab light bites, cool drinks and locally-inspired snacks at The Nook, the resort’s casual café, while Ocean Kitchen is the signature Mediterranean restaurant where guests can savour an appetizing selection of freshly prepared European and Middle Eastern cuisine, including prime grilled meats, fresh seafood, wood-fired pizzas and healthy dishes, accompanied with craft and draft beers, fine wines, creative cocktails, tropical juices and more.
Le Méridien Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort also offers a range of event spaces, including a 214.5 sqm ballroom, which can be adapted to become three smaller meeting spaces, with two additional intimate areas, all with cutting-edge facilities.
“I am delighted to welcome the world to Le Méridien Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort. Blissfully secluded yet easily accessible, this is a destination that will immerse guests in a world of natural beauty and cultural charm. From our sensitive design philosophy, which highlights Phuket’s heart and soul, to our curated experiences, we hope to surround visitors with the authentic spirit of Phuket.
By incorporating eco-friendly solutions, including rooftop solar panels to power the property, we are also helping to create a sustainable future for this idyllic island,” said the resort’s General Manager, Ms Jirarat Ninpadub.
Nestled on a secluded stretch of Phuket’s northwest coast, overlooking the azure Andaman Sea, Mai Khao Beach is an exceptional destination for guests who want to step off the beaten track and explore the natural beauty of Phuket.
