From budget hostels to luxurious resorts, and everything in between, there is no dearth of accommodation options in Phuket.
However, it still seems that we can do with a few more options. Looks like IHG feels the same.
Having partnered with Destination Group of Thailand, IHG is rebranding 2 of their independent hotels as Holiday Inn resorts in Phuket.
Independent hotels Surin Phuket Beach Resort and Karon Phuket Beach Resort will undergo renovations and be rebranded into Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Surin Beach and Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Karon Beach in 2023.
Both resorts have good ratings on most sites. Hopefully, IHG will make it only better.
Karon and Kata beach are gaining popularity with tourists who want to stay away from the crowded Patong.
IHG already has a good presence in Phuket.
Crowne Plaza Panwa Beach was missing from IHG’s site for a while, though it was accepting reservations directly. It seems to be back with IHG now.
We will soon have 2 new Holiday Inn Resorts in Phuket. It’s always good to have options. And Holiday Inn is an excellent brand in the essential/select-service hotel category.
