Holiday Inn and Outrigger open their doors in Southern Thailand

Two well-known hotel chains are taking over and making over two Thai properties located in popular beach areas.

The former Sala Talay Resort and Spa, which is now known as Holiday Inn Resort Krabi Ao Nang Beach.  Currently the resort offers 55 rooms and suites ranging from 45-95 square meters, all with crisp bedding, walk-in rain showers, bathtubs, free WIFI and balconies.  The plan is to expand to 188 rooms by adding a new wing to the property.  The wing will house the Holiday Inn KidSuites, which will include child-friendly features like bunk beds, TVs with game consoles and play corners.  Three large swimming pools surround the area where the new wing will be located, including one with a water slide.
