Bangkok, October 11, 2011 – Phuket’s largest resort, the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa on Karon Beach, is re-opening 128 of its newly refurbished deluxe-plus rooms on November 1 in time for what may be the island’s busiest high season ever.
The refurbishment project in the Andaman B wing of the 664-room resort complements last year’s upgrading of the premier beachfront Andaman A wing.
Originally opened in 1983, the Hilton Phuket Arcadia (then known as the Phuket Arcadia), came under the management of Hilton International in 2004, which has since elevated rooms and suites to a contemporary Thai international standard of comfort and decor.
The newly-upgraded Andaman B wing adjoins the resort’s lobby and reception area, garden pool and Sails restaurant.
The resort, set on 75 acres (195 rai or 30 hectares) provides direct access to Karon Beach in a lush tropical setting and features five separate wings with views over gardens, lagoons and the beach.
General Manager, Andre Gomez, said the hotel had always prided itself on delivering exceptional guest experiences. He said each refurbished room had been equipped with a 37-inch flat screen TV and decorated in tropical tones and mood décor and a four-point glass featured bathroom.
With the Tourism Authority of Thailand forecasting a record 19 million foreign arrivals in 2012, tourism operators throughout the kingdom – and especially in key tourism destinations such as Phuket – are gearing up for the busiest and most successful high season in many years, and perhaps ever.
Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort offers six room categories including 126 suites, four restaurants and a cafe, a 1500 square-metre Thai spa with 15 treatment villas, extensive sports and recreation facilities, Ocean Beach Club, five swimming pools, three pool bars and a sports bar, Kidz Paradise for children aged four to 12, a business centre and meeting and convention facilities.
Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa (www.phuketarcadia.hilton.com) and its sister properties – the Millenium Hilton Bangkok, Hilton Pattaya and Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa – are members of Golf In A Kingdrom: The Thailand Golf Experience (www.golfinakingdom.com), a co-operative marketing program that features Thailand’s premier golf courses, resorts and hotels.
