What was considered to be high season came in with consolidated occupancies of 60% against 87% a year earlier.
Bill Heineke's Minor International who has ownership interest in the JW Marriott and Anantara hotels on and island and owns properties operated by Four Seasons and Marriott along with its own Anantara brand saw less pronounced drops of 47% from THB 750 million down to THB 400.36 million this year. Occupancies shrunk from 80% down to 58%.
The Erawan group which counts the Patong Ibis and Six Senses Destination Spa here in Phuket amongst its large scale hotel assets dropped down to THB 20.95 million from THB 134.24 in 2008.
