Marriott International has announced the signing of the five-star Delta Hotels by Marriott Mai Khao Phuket Resort by Thailand's Apex Development PCL.
The mixed-use property is due to be fully operational by December 2021 and is set to bring Delta's philosophy to Phuket's sophisticated resort and property development scene, targeting both international tourists.
Delta Hotels by Marriott Mai Khao Phuket Resort and Residences will comprise a 179-room hotel, and 58 pool-villa beachfront condominiums with views of the Andaman Sea.
A 10-minute drive from Phuket International Airport, the 14 rai site features 200 metres of beach and a large natural lake.
Pongphan Sampawakoop, chairman of Apex Development, said: "This project on Mai Khao Beach will be the first Delta Hotels by Marriott-branded hotel in Southeast Asia. With the Delta Hotels by Marriott brand, we are looking forward to welcoming international business and leisure travellers and savvy resort home buyers to one of Thailand's most exciting resort destinations."
