Continuing with its rollout of the brand across Thailand, Meliá Phuket Mai Khao opened its doors this month, inviting guests to enjoy some Meliá luxury on Mai Khao’s sandy shores…
Fronting Phuket’s longest stretch of sand, and close to the beautiful Sirinat National Park, Melia Phuket Mai Khao opened last week on Phuket’s north western coastline. The striking new property features a collection of details and designs all with the aim of creating a relaxing and restorative atmosphere, from saltwater swimming pools, private villa pools and a reflection pond with sunken seating, to water gardens and irrigation misting. Shaded by a broad spectrum of native plants, the resort’s design uses a neutral palette of colours as a complement to Mai Khao’s sandy shore, creating a bright environment where high ceilings, floor-to-roof glass panels, and decorative metal screens blend harmoniously with the surroundings and take full advantage of the natural light.
“Thailand is an incredible destination which popularity has grown in the last years and we are proud to be collaborating with Phuket Villa Group to increase the visibility of its magnificent locations,” said Magdalena Martorell, General Manager of Meliá Phuket Mai Khao. “Phuket Mai Khao is one of the first resorts in the area and we look forward to welcoming our guests and make them experience an unforgettable service and build a lifetime of memories.”
The resort’s design showcases a contemporary aesthetic, while maintaining elements of traditional Thai touches. The beachfront property offers sumptuous suites and luxurious wellness-inspired pool villas for both families and couples to experience this tropical setting, while enjoying all the trademark facilities of a Meliá hotel. The modern, light-filled, and spacious mediterranean inspired suites and villas each feature outdoor bathtubs, open-air showers, and vast outdoor terraces, enabling guests to truly take in the surrounding nature. Guests are invited to relax in private cabanas or plunge pools, whilst those staying in the portfolio of ‘Wellness Villas’ can indulge in an open-air Vitamin C shower, daily massages, ultrasonic essential oil diffuser, GermGuardian air purifier, Tempur-Pedic pillows, yoga fit ball and mat, and more.
The hotel also offers a diverse culinary landscape, and guests will be able to enjoy Mediterranean and fusion cuisine at the chic Gaia Beach Club, where they will be able to sit poolside in cabanas and sun loungers whilst sipping cocktails in comfort. Elegant all-day dining restaurant Sasa specialises in Southeast Asian cuisine with Mediterranean flair, and Elyxr Café serves light meals and snacks, freshly squeezed juices and locally brewed liquors.
Wellness seekers will be able to take advantage of the resort’s signature YHI Spa, home to five luxurious treatment rooms. In addition to its extensive menu of massages, facials, body scrubs and wraps, spa therapists also provide poolside and in-villa treatments. Meliá Phuket Mai Khao’s modern fitness centre is equipped with the latest fitness machines and the kids club Kidsdom, with workshops for the young guests.
