Phuket renewed in chic style at Club Med


For Easter enjoy a taste of Thai at Club Med's amazing beachside Resort

Club Med Phuket will be looking brand new later this year after a stunning makeover that highlights its Thai culture, French influence and all set in the breathtaking seaside location of Phuket - the Pearl of the Orient. The new look oozes splashes of traditional Thai colours of purple and gold, and reflects French flair with design elements that will delight all guests from tots to teens and mums and dads to grandparents alike, wherever they turn.

Hugging the white sand beach in the peaceful and still waters of Kata Bay, the established tropical gardens encircle the accommodation wings, and a Mandara Spa secluded under the canopy soothes frayed nerves and eases tired muscles into holiday mode.

The new lobby & Reception welcomes travelers with a Thai inspired temple style entrance in red and gold. Comfortable sofas and low tables add a royal ambiance.

The new focal point of the resort will be a new and spectacular Thai boat oval bar. The color purple takes centre stage with a mix of bright colors to add modernity to traditional Thai design. It is an ideal spot for conviviality and meeting new friends. The expanded lounge is surrounded by armchairs and sofas that all reflect the same color and pattern effects. Together with its low wooden tables by local artisans, it is the perfect place to unwind with a cool drink or a snack.

Bali's hugely successful "quiet pool" concept is being replicated in the Phuket Resort, with an adults only pool area and tranquil zone with spectacular views right onto Kata Bay. Surrounded by super comfy long chairs and gazebos, it provides peace and intimacy for over 18's.

The restaurants have been divided into "stylized boutique zones' each with a different interpretation of Thai culture and offering gourmet cuisines from around the globe, many cooked before your eyes at food stations to ensure fresh and appetizing options. The 5 senses  theme will enable our customers to choose an ambiance, with an international gourmet buffet loaded with a variety of culinary experiences.

The 5 different pavilions will be named Saveurs (taste), Fragrances, Music, Colors and Material. Four of the pavilions are air-conditioned and one is al fresco. The restaurant is overlooking the quiet pool and offers a direct view through to the ocean.

The Spa has received a makeover too, and guests will be welcomed in a Thai reception pavilion sunken in a Zen garden, specializing in Thai massages and a wide range of spa treatments.

A purpose built area houses all that is the Kid's Club and Baby Cub – (the first Baby Club in Asia Pacific) – with its own sheltered swimming pool, playground and interactive play area.

For the active guests there is a 9 hole golf course, multiple tennis courts, daily yoga and water fitness classes, a gym, and many sporting areas offering complimentary equipment and tuition.
