Khao Lak Hotel Pipeline Adds Marriott And Pullman

Category: Hotels, Posted:18 Jun 2018 | 07:54 am

Phuket’s Northern neighbor Khao Lak’s surging hotel development footprint is adding new properties under the Marriott and ACCOR’s Pullman brands.

First is the 300 key Khao Lak Marriott Resort and Spa in the Bang Muang area opening in 2021.

Second is a new Pullman featuring 252 keys, which will mark the return of the ACCOR brand to Khao Lak.  

With a pipeline that includes names like Sheraton and Holiday Inn, there is a marked influx of international brands to the area.

Some existing properties are also ramping up new product with the most prolific being a planned expansion of the JW Marriott Khao Lak.

One thing that has us scratching our head though is the propensity of the new developments to follow a fairly generic formula with a number adding large- scale MICE facilities.

Same same, but different remains a key mantra in Thailand’s hotel growth model.
