InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has launched its first Holiday Inn Express on the island of Phuket.
The new Holiday Inn Express Phuket Patong Beach Central offers 277 rooms in the centre of Phuket’s main resort area, all featuring free Wi-Fi, 32-inch LCD televisions and private balconies.
The property also features a breakfast bar, 24-hour fitness room and a swimming pool.
“Today’s savvy traveller is looking for quality accommodation in a prime location and Holiday Inn Express offers the most important elements guests look for in a hotel without the frills,” said Jonathan Mills, head of operations for Holiday Inn Express. “This is the formula of the brand’s success across the world and we are confident that the Holiday Inn Express Phuket Patong Beach Central is well-poised to meet the demands of this growing segment in one of Thailand’s most popular leisure destinations.”
The Phuket property becomes the second Holiday Inn Express in Thailand, following the launch of the Holiday Inn Express Bangkok Siam in June last year. IHG now plans to open several more Holiday Inn Express hotels across Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia over the next 12 months.
