The Soneva Group has sold the Evason Phuket resort.
With immediate effect, the resort will no longer be operated by Six Senses Resorts & Spas. The value of the deal has not been disclosed.
Sonu Shivdasani, founder & CEO of the Soneva Group, said; “Although it did not fit into The Soneva Group’s strategic plans, Evason Phuket is a wonderful property that will continue to thrive under new ownership. I would like to take this opportunity to give my personal thanks to all of the hosts at Evason Phuket for their commitment and hard work.
“We are working hard to provide alternative employment to as many hosts as possible. In addition, we have agreed a package for any Evason Phuket hosts whom we can’t employ elsewhere.”
Shivdasani added that the sale follows a new strategy “to focus on owning and managing our own properties and to work with just one brand, the Soneva brand”.
The deal is separate from the acquisition of the Six Senses and Evason brands by US-based Pegasus. The Soneva Group continues to retain a majority stake in Six Senses Hua Hin and Evason Hua Hin and Six Senses Laamu.
