Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. announced expansion of its footprint in Thailand with the announcement of its latest property in the country; the Sheraton Phuket Grand Bay Resort. Boasting a private beachfront and hillside location with unobstructed views of the sparkling Andaman Sea, the 200-room resort will feature all of the Sheraton brand’s signature offerings.
Slated to open in January 2019 on Thailand’s largest island, the hotel will have three distinctive dining venues, 1,326 square meters of meeting and event space, a luxurious spa, fully-equipped fitness center and picturesque outdoor swimming pool.
Sheraton Phuket Grand Bay Resort is located in northeast Phuket in the Grand Bay area, home to the Ao Po Grand Marina. The hotel is an approximate 25-minute drive from Phuket International Airport and an hour’s drive to Patong, the hub of entertainment on the island.
Starwood currently operates five Sheraton hotels in Thailand, including Sheraton Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers; Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa; Sheraton Hua Hin Pranburi Villas; Sheraton Samui Resort; and Sheraton Pattaya Resort. The brand’s development pipeline also includes Sheraton Phuket Kalim Beach Resort, which is slated to open in 2018.
