New Thai resort targets family groups

Khao Lak is what Phuket used to be a couple of decades ago; authentically Thai with an easy going charm and deserted beaches.

But the big hotel chains are quickly catching on to Khao Lak's allure with the latest arrival the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, an all-suite retreat nestled in a beachside setting on southern Thailand’s Andaman coast.

This resort - targeting the family market - offers a selection of two-bedroom suites and is just an hour’s drive north of Phuket.

“The opening of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, with its spacious accommodation and outstanding service, will complement our existing property in Khao Lak, enabling all guests to come together and create meaningful connections,” said Jakob Helgen, Marriott International's area vice-president.

“As the world starts to travel again, this new opening will further stimulate the country’s tourism sector and attract families back to the Land of Smiles.”

On the ground floor, a collection of pool access suites will allow guests to step straight into what is billed as south-east Asia’s longest swimming pool - a 2.4km lagoon that features a water slide, a wave pool, and an aqua trampoline.

Young guests staying in the pool access suites can choose to be transported to their room by boat and guests of all ages can look out for the resort’s Coconut Boat, which will cruise around the lagoon every day loaded with fresh, ice-cold coconuts.

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites will share the extensive facilities of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa - giving guests the facilities of two resorts for the price of one.

The dual resorts will boast 11 restaurants and bars offering cuisines from traditional Thai to Japanese and Italian.

“I am delighted to unveil JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites and to welcome travellers from around the world,” said general manager Abhimanyu Singh.
