Sur­rounded by a salt­wa­ter la­goon, Banyan Tree Phuket has been mar­keted as the beach­front re­sort in Thai­land’s is­land prov­ince. With all- pool vil­las, the re­sort is just 20 kilo­me­tres from Phuket In­ter­na­tional Air­port (HKT). Lo­cated just hours from In­dia by air, Phuket is a pop­u­lar choice among many of In­dia’s hol­i­day­mak­ers. The re­cent move to be­gin di­rect air con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween In­dia (from Delhi and Mum­bai) and Phuket can only spell well for the two. Com­ment­ing on how this will bode well for the re­sort prop­erty, Shan­non

Creado, Area Di­rec­tor for Sales & Mar­ket­ing, Banyan Tree Phuket, says, “In­dia is a very im­por­tant mar­ket for us. For Banyan Tree Phuket, there are go­ing to be new av­enues that will be opened with the di­rect con­nec­tiv­ity. The new con­nec­tiv­ity from Delhi and Mum­bai to Phuket prom­ises to get in more tourists, es­pe­cially over the week­end.”

The re­sort of­fers vil­las for a lux­u­ri­ous stay, meet­ing fa­cil­i­ties for the cor­po­rate trav­eller, and sev­eral F& B op­tions to all its guests. With a bou­quet of of­fer­ings, the leisure trav­eller is not all that the prop­erty is look­ing to charm. Creado adds, “We have a grand new ball­room that is go­ing to be opened by April, and with that we hope to not just get busi­ness clients for meet­ings, but our tar­get will also be the cel­e­bra­tions mar­ket that in­cludes wed­dings, an­niver­sary par­ties, birth­day cel­e­bra­tions, etc.”

To ac­cel­er­ate ar­rivals from In­dia, Creado says, “We are in the process of ap­point­ing our own rep­re­sen­ta­tion in In­dia. This will help us un­der­stand the In­dian mar­ket bet­ter in terms of what they are look­ing for and the kind of cus­tomi­sa­tion they need.”

Creado also adds that the year 2019 looks very promis­ing al­ready, as the brand has quite a few ho­tels in the pipe­line.
