BHMA Away Pranburi Beach Resort

Flight Centre Travel Group’s hotel and accommodation business BHMA has announced the signing of a hotel management agreement in Thailand.

The resort, which operated as Pulakorn Private Beach Resort, has been rebranded on 1 November 2018, marking the fifth Away property in Thailand. The agreement was made with Thai developer Ban Pulakorn (2550) Co., Ltd. to operate Away Pranburi Beach Resort.

“In key visitor hotspots throughout Asia and the world”

BHMA CEO, Peter Lucas, said: “We are pleased to announce that Away Pranburi Beach Resort will be the fifth Away branded hotel in Thailand, following Away Koh Kood, Away Kanchanaburi, Away Chiang Mai Thapae and Away Chiang Mai Phucome.

“The new management agreement follows our stated objectives of growing the brand in key visitor hotspots throughout Asia and the world.”

Away Pranburi Beach Resort is located on a beach near a local fishing village in the popular resort district of Hua Hin. It offers a private environment for holidays, weddings and events. The resort can cater for up to 100 delegates in a fully-fitted meeting room and beach weddings for up to 200 guests.
