GHM has signed a management agreement with Aquarius International Development (AQI) to operate a 200-key resort on Koh Chang, the third largest island in Thailand.
The Chedi Aquarius Koh Chang will feature an all-day-dining restaurant, a cliff-edge restaurant, rooftop bar, spa, infinity pool with pool bar, and conference facilities overlooking the Gulf of Thailand.
Scheduled to open in 2023, the new Chedi would complement the brand’s acclaimed hotels in Muscat (Oman), Sharjah (U.A.E.), Andermatt (Switzerland) and Luštica Bay (Montengro), as well as hotels under development for the Maldives, U.A.E., India and Taiwan, all set to open in the coming year.
GHM CEO Tommy Lai said that this new resort is shaping up with an integrity of design and a certain poise that are hallmarks of the Chedi experience. They have been on the lookout for a way back into Thailand since 2013, and The Chedi Aquarius Koh Chang is the perfect vehicle.
Nixon Chung, COO of AQI said that they are delighted to partner with GHM to bring the prestigious Chedi brand back to Thailand. With its pristine location in this ecotourism haven, impeccable design and exceptional amenities, The Chedi Aquarius Koh Chang will represent the very best of Thai hospitality. They look forward to welcoming guests from the 4th quarter of 2023.
GHM, by design, is a resort group that has focused on emerging, rather than mature, destinations. Readily accessible by air and by road from Bangkok, flights to the nearest airport in Trat take one hour; overland, the drive is 300 kilometres. The ferry from the mainland takes less than an hour
