Outrigger Hospitality Group Acquires Three Thailand Resorts

Trio of Beach Resorts in Koh Samui, Phuket and Khao Lak to Re-Open Under the Outrigger Brand and Management by the End of the Year

Thailand, Phuket. July 21, 2021

Outrigger Hospitality Group announced today that it has completed its purchase of the Manathai Hotels and Resorts brand - inclusive of three premier beach resorts in southern Thailand.

The resorts consist of 372 keys in three of the most sought-after beach locations in Asia. Outrigger will refresh the former Manathai Koh Samui, Manathai Khao Lak and Manathai Surin Phuket before rebranding and re-opening by the year-end high season as Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort, Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort and Phuket Manathai by Outrigger®.

The investment is directly aligned with Outrigger's strategic business plan to expand its presence in Asia Pacific and beyond, furthering its mission to be "The Premier Beach Resort Brand in the World."

"This acquisition trio demonstrates our confidence in Thailand's tourism industry and commitment to the global expansion of Outrigger's leisure resort portfolio," said Jeff Wagoner (right), president and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group. "Our past success in Thailand stemmed from celebrating unique cultural aspects of the destination - which is something that we plan to continue at all three of the new properties."

Outrigger Koh Samui Beach Resort

The 148-key Outrigger Koh Samui is located on the quiet sands of Lamai Beach on the east coast of Thailand's second-largest island, which is a 70-minute flight from Bangkok and 55 minutes from Phuket. The property, which exudes a soft ‘colonial' elegance, includes 34 suites, a spa, three restaurants, a kids club and facilities for weddings and events. The resort is nestled in an enclave of lush coconut trees, adjacent to the beach, steps from a rich choice of dining and shopping outlets.

Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort

In Khao Lak, a 75-minute drive north of Phuket airport, the 158-key Outrigger Khao Lak sits on Bang Sak Beach, a long stretch of fine sand coastline with uninterrupted views of the Andaman Sea. The property's room portfolio includes 12 suites and villas. There are two restaurants, a bar, an expansive pool with ocean views and a kids club. Popular local activities include elephant trekking, canoeing, forest and waterfall discoveries.

Phuket Manathai by Outrigger®

In Phuket, 30-minutes south of the international airport, the Phuket Manathai by Outrigger® is an elegant 66-room boutique property on the edge of the powder white sands of Surin Beach, within walking distance of an array of dining, shopping and entertainment venues. The property features one main restaurant, a pool bar and decadent spa. Thirty-seven of the rooms are suites.

Outrigger Hospitality Group continues to look for expansion opportunities and will have representation at the Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS) in Los Angeles this month and the Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP) in Singapore this October.

Food & Beverage: Necessity Breeds Invention


Hotel restaurants were not immune to the devastation that Covid caused in the food & beverage industry last year. In order to survive, many operations expanded their services to include packaged food sales, prepared meals to go, mini pop-up grocery stores, meal kits, takeout, and delivery to make up for lost revenues. These hybrid operations have become increasingly popular in hotels because they maximize limited F&B space and also attract local business. In those restaurants where customers are willing to dine in, there is a greater emphasis on safety protocols. Tables and chairs are spaced far enough apart to provide a sense of safety and comfort between parties. There are also stricter cleaning and disinfecting practices occurring in between dining encounters. In addition, there is a greater emphasis on outdoor dining with its offer of fresh air. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to manage their F&B operations in the wake of the pandemic.
