Work is underway on a major new luxury resort project near Phuket’s main tourist destination, Patong.
Located on a hillside plot at the southern end of Patong, the new Andakira Crest Tri Trang Resort & Spa Pool Villas is being created by the Andakira Group.
Once open, the resort will feature a series of suites and villas, all including iPod docking stations, espresso machines, Wi-Fi, large LCD TVs, balconies with outdoor day beds and “deluxe” minibars. Several suites will also have direct access to the resort pool or private jacuzzis.
The luxury villas meanwhile, range from one- to three-bedroom and feature large indoor and outdoor areas, private pools and butler service.
The resort’s developers say the Andakira Crest will mainly cater to “honeymooners, individual leisure travellers, famil[ies] and groups”, and there will be many activities targeted at these sectors, including a swimming pool, fitness centre, gift shops, a games room, mini-golf, bicycle hire, cooking classes and a tour desk. The Anda Spa & Holistic Wellness Village will offer multiple treatment rooms, including couples’ areas, plus yoga and tai-chi classes.
F&B options include two ocean-view restaurants, a bistro, cigar room and a rooftop sky lounge and garden café. There resort will also have its own organic gardens, providing food for the restaurants.
For the MICE market, there will extensive facilities, including a large conference hall.
“Patong Beach is a booming tourism city… but it’s the culture and atmosphere developing in this part of Phuket that led us all to believe that Andakira Crest was the right fit for the neighbourhood,” said Azuan Noordin, corporate group general manager of Andakira. “We’re honoured that group chose the right location for its new expansion of the brand.”
Andakira Crest Tri Trang Resort & Spa Pool Villas is currently under construction and due to soft-open in December 2015.
