The Naka Phuket features sleek glass and stone pods “floating” above the mountainside and offering sweeping views of the beach and Andaman Sea.
Ready for something different on Phuket’s west coast? Architect Duangrit Bunnag is taking 1,740 acres and eschewing the traditional Thai resort blueprint in exchange for something more futuristic. Plans for The Naka Phuket show sleek glass and stone pods “floating” above the mountainside and offering sweeping views of the beach and Andaman Sea. Bunnang was also careful to work with the natural landscape and opted to change his design rather than remove mature trees.

And when it’s finally time for your vacation to begin, Le Coral Hideaway Beyond Phuket wants to make sure you enjoy every minute possible. The resort’s complimentary Fast Track Immigration service and luxe limo transfer will have you relaxing on a chaise faster than you can imagine starting in mid-March.

When staying at a hotel not many people put much thought into who owns the property as opposed to who is running it.
Many people assume that the hotel is owned by the company whose name is above the door, when in fact in many cases a property is owned by one party and the management of the hotel is contracted out to another company. The managing party may be the hotel chain itself or a third party hotel management company. These management companies could have management contracts with several hotels with a portfolio comprising various brands.
Why am I talking about this? Because a recent re-branding of an iconic property in Chiang Mai has brought some of this out into the open, along with a little acrimony.
