Radisson Hotel Group’s upper-midscale Park Inn by Radisson brand will make its debut in Thailand with the launch of a brand-new hotel in Phuket Town, the island’s provincial capital.

Phuket’s Appeal

A record 8.4 million international visitors came to Phuket in 2017, making it Thailand’s most popular resort destination. The island’s expanding international airport receives direct flights from Beijing, Sydney, London, Dubai and Moscow, and Katerina Giannouka, president, Asia Pacific for Radisson Hotel Group, said the city is “rapidly evolving” from an upscale resort island into a diverse, all-year-round tourism destination.

Scheduled to open in Q1 2020, the 130-guestroom Park Inn by Radisson Phuket Town will be part of a mixed-use development featuring shops and dining outlets. The hotel will be next to Highway 402—Phuket’s main north-south highway and a major commercial corridor.
