IHG Expands Vignette Collection with Sixth Property Set to Open in Thailand in 2028
IHG Hotels & Resorts, a prominent global hotel company, has recently signed its sixth Vignette Collection property in Thailand, further solidifying its presence in the region. The new addition, Phuket Nai Yang Beach, is a beachfront resort set to open its doors in 2028. This announcement marks a significant stride for IHG's Luxury and Lifestyle portfolio, now recognized as the second largest globally.
This latest signing underscores IHG's ongoing collaboration with Dinso Resort Co. Ltd, as Phuket Nai Yang Beach joins the recently-opened Dinso Resort & Villas Phuket, Vignette Collection, and an upcoming Dinso Resort & Villas Koh Chang, Vignette Collection. Saowarin Chanprakaisi, Senior Director of Development for South East Asia and Korea at IHG, expresses delight in the growing pipeline for Vignette Collection in Thailand. Detailed information about these properties and IHG's expansion can be found on the company website.
Central to Vignette Collection is the concept of balancing individuality and belonging. Each property within the collection maintains its distinctive identity while sharing a common vision to offer a more authentic way to travel. The success of the brand is evident in the debut of Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok in 2022 and the recent opening of Dinso Resort & Villas Phuket, both garnering praise for providing unique travel experiences.
Situated on the Southern tip of Nai Yang Beach, the upcoming property will offer 115 rooms and suites with breathtaking views of the Andaman Sea and nearby wildlife parks. The resort will feature eight Presidential Suites, four restaurants, a rooftop bar, extensive meeting spaces, a swimming pool, fitness center, and a spa. Its strategic location, a short 15-minute drive from Phuket International Airport, ensures easy access for travelers.
The Phuket Tourist Association (PTA) targets the arrival of 14 million international and domestic tourists by the end of 2023, surpassing pre-Covid levels. To support this growth, the island is investing in infrastructure projects, including a second airport and the development of expressways. Nai Yang Beach, Phuket Nai Yang Beach, Vignette Collection, is strategically positioned to cater to those seeking access to the nearby Sirinat National Park and championship golf courses.
Pattranit Mahattanawisit, Managing Director of Dinso Resort Co., Ltd, emphasizes the growing demand for distinctive lifestyle-led experiences and unique services in Phuket. Phuket Nai Yang Beach, Vignette Collection, aims to fulfill this demand by offering a thoughtfully designed and sustainably developed boutique property, contributing to the island's reputation as a premier tourism destination.
Phuket Nai Yang Beach, Vignette Collection, is set to join the global Vignette Collection portfolio in 2028, alongside properties in Lisbon, Porto, the U.S., Australia, Bangkok, and Dubai. With 19 hotels in the pipeline, Vignette Collection aims to reach 100 properties in 10 years, providing the next generation of travelers with unique stays in memorable destinations.
