Swissotel Hotels & Resorts has been appointed to manage its second resort in Phuket, and fourth property in Thailand. Currently operating as dusitD2 Phuket Resort, it is scheduled to commence operation as Swissotel Phuket Patong Beach Resort in June 2016. This is the second resort that the brand will manage for owner Destination Properties; the first being the Swissotel Phuket Kamala Beach Resort, which the leading hotel group has successfully operated since 2012.

Located 45 minutes from Phuket International Airport, Swissotel Phuket Patong Beach Resort is in the Patong area of Phuket, one of the most visited parts of Phuket and famous for its nightlife. The hotel is mere minutes from Patong beach and a 15-minute leisurely walk from Bangla road, a street famous for its outdoor bars and lively atmosphere.

"This is a wonderful new addition for the Swissotel portfolio and we are very excited to be expanding our presence in Phuket," said Lilian Roten, vice president, Swissotel Brand. "Through its contemporary design and stimulating surroundings, the hotel will serve as an ideal base for guests to explore the Patong area and delight in experiences that are truly authentic to Phuket."

The hotel features 390 guestrooms, four restaurants and bars, a swimming pool and a health and kids club. It also has three meeting rooms and a new rooftop ballroom with a seating capacity of 250 that is under construction. The MICE facilities are currently expanding to accommodate more events and these new features will debut in September 2016.

Phuket is in Southern Thailand facing the Andaman Sea coastline, and is the country's largest island. It is Thailand's most prosperous province with tourism as the island's leading industry. Phuket was named one of the Top 3 Island Destinations by Conde Nast Traveler in 2013 and the island is also a year-round destination for meetings, conferences and events.

"We are delighted to deepen our relationship with Swissotel," said Gary Murray, CEO, Destination Resorts Co. Ltd. "The popularity of Phuket as an exciting destination continues to grow and our Phuket properties are ideally located for visitors to the region. Swissotel gives us the superb, professional, efficient management style that creates a consistently excellent experience for our guests."

Swissotel Phuket Patong Beach Resort will soon join the growing portfolio of Swissotel Hotels & Resorts in Asia Pacific, including Swissotel Nai Lert Park and Swissotel Le Concorde in Bangkok Thailand, Swissotel The Stamford and Swissotel Merchant Court in Singapore, as well as Swissotel Sydney, Australia, amongst others.
