Movenpick Resort and Spa Phuket, Thailand Sells for USD 90 Million
Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels has completed the single largest hotel transaction in Thailand in recent years. Movenpick Resort and Spa Karon Beach Phuket was sold on behalf of Kingdom Hotel Investments to Crystal Caliber Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysia-based TA Global Berhad.
Occupying a prime location along Phuket’s western coast on Karon Beach and set within extensive landscaped tropical gardens, the 338-key Movenpick Resort and Spa Karon Beach is one of Phuket’s most established resorts. In addition to a wide range of room categories, the resort features 30 two-bedroom residences, eight food and beverage outlets, four swimming pools, in excess of 14,526 sq ft (1,350 sqm) of dedicated meeting space and a variety of recreational activities.
The sale of the Movenpick Resort and Spa Karon Beach brings Jones Lang LaSalle’s total transacted hotel volume in Thailand to in excess of USD 440 million (THB 13.5 billion) over the last 24 months. The substantial volume of hotel transactions and robust pace of market activity are testament to the continued strength of the domestic and regional demand for opportunities in Phuket, as well as the wider Thai market.
