Banyan Tree Plans Q2 2020 Opening of Luxury Resort in Krabi, Banyan Tree Krabi

Thailand, Krabi. December 04, 2019

Singapore-based Banyan Tree Holdings Ltd, one of Asia's foremost luxury hotel groups, has announced plans for a new resort in Krabi in the second quarter of 2020.

Now under development in a serene location on Tubkaek Beach, some 35 kilometers from Krabi Airport, Banyan Tree Krabi fronts powdery white sands and the shallow-shelved coast of the Andaman Sea. In the near distance, a dozen karst limestone towers jut from pristine waters. Nestled directly behind the hotel lie the lush forests of Mu Ko Phi Phi and Khao Ngon Nak national parks.

The new Thai resort will offer 72 pool suites and villas, among them seven 2-bedroom options and one three-bedroom villa.

Facilities include all-day dining, a ballroom, a wedding chapel, a beach club, a kids' club, and a fitness center. In keeping with Banyan Tree's holistic branding, the resort will also host a rainforest-themed spa.

Banyan Tree Holdings Ltd. said that it expects to open the doors of Banyan Tree Krabi to guests between April and June 2020.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
