The Pullman Khao Lak Resort has recently opened its doors in Thailand introducing a new era of elegant Thai hospitality, ancient heritage and intuitive design to the hot and up-and-coming beachfront destination. The hotel takes up a prime position overlooking the Andaman Sea.
Nestled on the soft sands of Bang Muang Beach, in the north of Phang Nga province, the sensitive low-rise retreat fuses the cosmopolitan vibe of Pullman Hotels & Resorts, Accor’s high-end international brand, with the captivating culture of this coastal region. The property features 253 stylish rooms, spacious suites and luxurious villas, all of which boast spectacular sea or mountain views, high-speed Wi-Fi, a sofa bed, balcony and an oversized shower with premium amenities.
The family suites provide exceptional options for parents, with bunk beds, direct access to the garden, or even private steps into the resort’s sparkling swimming pool. For truly special occasions, each of the six Beachfront Pool Villas provides contemporary living space and a large plunge pool, just steps from the sea.
Pullman Khao Lak Resort reflects the rich backstory of the nearby town of Takua Pa, the finest harbour on the west coast, in its design concept. The experts at Tierra Design, led by Martin Palleros, modelled the resort on a traditional merchant’s house, with a series of courtyards and ponds. The towering, curved sculpture at the entrance has been crafted from handmade red bricks, a famous material of the local area, creating a dramatic first impression for all visitors.
Hervé Duprat, General Manager, Pullman Khao Lak Resort said in a statement that the property is very excited to welcome guests, and to showcase the charm and heritage of the relatively undiscovered part of Thailand. He mentioned that while the resort is only 100 kilometres north of Phuket, the laid-back nature of the region would feel a million miles away from hustle and bustle of the main tourist hubs. It was also mentioned that the company’s aim is to re-establish the area’s ancient trade routes through modern day travel and hospitality.
