Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort – focussing on family fun | The Thaiger

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort is inviting families with kids of all ages to enjoy the ultimate island experience with comfortable family bungalows, child-friendly facilities and features, all set within 70 tranquil acres of beachfront beauty.

Offering stunning seaside stays for the whole family, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort boasts two freeform infinity pools overlooking the white-sand beach at La Ba Gao Bay, which boasts clear, protected, shallow waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

The resort also offers plenty of engaging activities with a fitness centre, yoga classes, tennis court and watersports centre. The menus at the resort’s four restaurants include kids’ meals, and babysitting and child-focused services are also available, as well as a schedule of activities collectively known as the Phi Phi Family Playground.

Chao Treenawong, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort’s General Manager, highlights the appeal of Koh Phi Phi as a family escape. “Parents choose to stay with us because they want their children to get away from the screen and enjoy nature with fun, energizing, activities to fill their day, top class accommodation options and fantastic dining,” he says.

Light, airy and comfortable, all the rooms, bungalows, suites and villas at Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort are designed for three or more occupants, and many come with an extra sofa-bed suitable for a child. There’s also a spacious two-bedroom Family Bungalow, also with a sofa bed, perfect for four or more guests. Meanwhile, cots and extra beds are available on request.

When it comes to dining, families have plenty of choice with international buffet breakfasts, a la carte lunches and dinners, as well as snacks, ice-cream, juices and fruit served from the pool bar or bean/Co café. There are also plenty of dishes designed specially for younger guests.

The unique Phi Phi Family Playground ticks all the family friendly boxes. Youngsters are kept entertained with a Little Islanders Programme for 3-10 year olds while older kids can enjoy the Young Explorers Programme, specially designed for 10-16 year olds with activities that range from crafts to swimming classes, kayaking adventures to beach games and fitness boot camps, cooking classes to hands-on sustainability workshops.

Creating a healthy connection between families who stay at the resort and the environment is part of the ethos at Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and new Marine Discovery Centre launched earlier this year as an interactive attraction to showcase local marine life with colourful displays and an integrated clownfish and bamboo shark nursery onsite.

“The centre not only teaches families about how we’re taking an active role in protecting Thailand’s endangered marine species,” explains Khun Chao. “It also encourages young people to get involved and feel connected to the destination, which adds tremendously to their enjoyment.”

Another family friendly bonus at Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort is that guests looking to book a late summer getaway or an early winter vacation in 2018 can take advantage of the Early Bird Promotion with a special 15% discount for bookings made 60 days in advance.

Bangkok luxury poised to push through the US$300 ceiling

Bangkok luxury poised to push through the US$300 ceiling | The Thaiger

For hotel owners and managers in South East Asia, one of the great mysteries of the past ten years has been the low rate profile of Bangkok’s luxury hotel set. Despite soaring and sustained tourism growth, rising airlift and a strong economy, rates at Bangkok’s top tier properties have remained fairly stagnant.

Have we reached the tipping point?

I had had the opportunity to visit the latest entry to the Bangkok luxury class a few days ago, the Rosewood. With 159 keys which includes a limited number of posh houses with private pools and terraces the property is seeing an exceptional response and already achieving high rates.

What’s impressive about the entry is a take on the design approach that sees hotel developers apply a non-uniform approach with AvroKO coming in to focus on the restaurants and bars, while the rooms and public areas were led by Celia Chu Design and Associates.

While the speakeasy Lennon’s has not be opened yet, the 6,000 record vinyl collection is impressive and the bar will clearly have a strong pull. Taking the approach to designing restaurants and not typical hotel outlets, the Chinese eatery Nan Bei is a breath of fresh air and limited seating provides a bespoke appeal.

Taking a step back, and looking at recent entries like the Waldorf Astoria, and upcoming 101 key Capella, what is clear is luxury properties are shifting in terms of key drivers of the segment of art, fashion, residential vibe, bar and restaurant offerings, wellness and events.

So, what about rates?

On a broad basis Bangkok’s top tier hotels have averaged rates of US$200-240 for the past few years. This set has seen longer serving properties such as the St. Regis, Kempinski, and Okura effectively flatline on rates, though newer entries have come up including the Park Hyatt. On the broader horizon is the return of the Four Seasons and Capella by the river and the Orient Express at the MahaNakhon skyscraper.

With the entry of Rosewood driving rates, my expectation is that a few of the set will follow and at the end of 2019 we will set limited number of hotels crash through the US$300 average room rate barrier and effectively smash the legacy glass ceiling of Bangkok’s luxury hotels.

As in any business there will be winners and losers. Smaller hotels with some rate leading premium key types will be able to push up average daily rates. Segmentation is another key and hotels on the river that lack substantial corporate numbers will remain challenged until transport links to the area improve.

Where in the world are Bangkok luxury hotels heading?

To sum up 2019, size and location matter, the shift on food and beverage and social events along with niches like wellness and  smaller meetings/weddings are the key to the future. As for the quantum leap in rates, it’s about time Bangkok hoteliers be confident and push rates towards a more global norm.

Third runway for BKK Suvarnabhumi Airport

Third runway for BKK Suvarnabhumi Airport | The Thaiger

The Thai cabinet yesterday approved the construction of a third runway at Suvarnabhumi International Airport as part of the country’s ambition to become the aviation hub of ASEAN.

The 21.7 billion baht project will increase the combined capacity of Suvarnabhumi international airport’s runways to 94 arrivals and departures per hour from the current 64, said Lt-Gen Weerachon Sukonthapatipak, deputy government spokesman.

Suvarnabhumi Airport (aka. BKK) was opened in 2006 as Bangkok’s second airport. Initially it replaced the tired Don Mueang Airport but Don Mueang was later revamped as a low-coast airport to service the growing traffic demands.

Meanwhile Suvarnabhumi Airport was, and still is, operating above its designed capacity. An earlier bid to build a third terminal has been mired in controversy and is currently shelved pending a new brief from Airports of Thailand with a new round of design bids called for in the future.

Average hotel prices drop in Thailand in 2018

Average hotel prices drop in Thailand in 2018 | The Thaiger

The latest Hotel Price Index (HPI) released by Hotels.com reveals no sign of a slowdown for the global travel industry. Prices are up for overnight accommodation by 3% globally in 2018 across every regional index, except for the Pacific region, including Thailand.

Hotel.com has 85 websites in 34 languages, and lists over 325,000 hotels in approximately 19,000 locations. Its inventory includes hotels and B&Bs, and some condos and other types of commercial lodging.

Travellers to and around Thailand paid an average price of 1,720 baht a night for their domestic accommodation last year, a 7% drop compared to 2017, and paid the same average price of 4,437 baht a night for international accommodation in both 2018 and 2017.

The growth in travel comes despite global uncertainties including Brexit, California wildfires, South African drought and Japanese earthquakes. Travellers also showed resilience and renewed confidence in destinations touched by unrest: Paris, Egypt, Turkey; regions experiencing currency fluctuation: South America; and areas affected by natural disaster: North America.

Despite the overall growth in global accommodation prices, average prices paid for domestic accommodation in Thailand have decreased, with average prices for international beds remaining stable.
