Kata Rocks Resort is a floating gathering of white clouds caught on the hillside headland between the land and the amazing Andaman Sea at Kata Beach, Phuket.
It sits proudly as the untouchable heights of a “pie in the sky” that reeks of sheer and utter indulgence, which mere mortals cannot reach. With expanses of brilliant white splashed with dove grey lush furnishings, it is a graceful egret soaring. [See our earlier post of Kata Rocks, Nov 2013]
Late November 2014 will see another sleek upmarket communal villa complex open by Bespoke Hospitality Management Asia. Following the success of its X2 Villa property in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, Phuket was next in line for the expansion of this concept of “group” luxury accommodation.
Revisiting the traditional Asian family compound way of living, X2 Phuket Oasis Villa will comprise of a central large house, and a resort size swimming pool with a surrounding 7 individual villas all of sheer decadence. It is the ultimate way to capture the spirit of group accommodation for 14 people, families, groups of friends, corporate retreats or special events.
It is one of 51 islands that form the Mu Koh Chang National Park archipelago, which is an international tourist destination for its lush rainforests, waterfalls, wildlife and beautiful coral reefs.

Samui Island is the scene for a takeover by Sheraton’s Starwood brand of the existing Samui Imperial, a 141 room resort that is going to get the makeover of all makeovers without even closing its doors.
Sheraton Samui Resort will become the 24th property under various brands of Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Thailand’s burgeoning hotel market place and its fourth property on Samui Island. With a refurbishment schedule strategy orchestrated to minimize any impact during this transitional phase, management promises that guests will not be inconvenienced at all.
The city of Ayutthaya, sitting on the Chao Phraya River, was once upon a time known as the “Venice of the East” and is now home to Sala Hospitality Group’s newest addition, Sala Ayutthaya- though not as early as originally planned and reported here.
With a view that will overwhelm your senses, this latest addition directly faces Wat Phutthaisawan, a history drenched reminder of another world. The temple was known as the “Monastery of Lord Buddha of the Heavens”, and heaven is exactly where you will think you are upon stepping into Sala Ayutthaya.
