Red Hot Phuket 4×4

Category: Hotels, Posted:27 Aug 2013 | 06:00 am

As we wind down the last four months of 2013 or the final 122 days lets look at the hottest hotel happenings coming up in Phuket.
Our four-by-four of hotels to watch are –
Iniala
This six star ultra private hotel just over the bridge in Phang Nga is creating a stir in luxury circles. With Danny Drinkwater at the helm, a Michelin star chef, fine art gallery and assortment of world-renowned designers there are great expectations on this product raising the bar around Asia. Soft opening in November.
Kata Rocks
Developer Richard Pope caught property buyer's attention when he sold a unit to Man Vs, Wild's Bear Grylls. Now the much-anticipated hotel is coming online with some well-known former Aman folks behind the wheel. Opening December.
Point Yamu by Como
In the works for quite sometime, and names such as Philippe Starck, Jean Michel Gathay and Paolo Navroni proving divine design inspiration the starship Point Yamu is finally ready for take off. Opening November.
Anantara Layan
Phuket's trendy beachscape keeps marching north, from Surin and Bangtao now up to Layan. Bill Heinecke's Minor Hotel Group has undertaken an extreme makeover of the former Bundarika and by all accounts the latest Anantara is doing to be a head turner. Look forward to the launch of the ultra luxury villa estate adjunct to the resort which features iconic designer Jaya Ibrahim. Opening late this year.
That's four and we have not even got around to the latest round of new beach clubs including Nikki Beach in Layan, and the trio of Zazada, Bimi and Bongo at Surin.
Time passes quickly but Phuket just keeps getting better by the day.
