Minor Hotel Group (MHG) has announced it is to open a new resort in Phuket. Bundarika Villas & Suites will be situated on the Northwest coast’s Layan Beach and will feature 77 villas and suites. The group has also purchased a large plot of land adjacent to the resort, which it is believed will be used to develop into a high-end residential project. The group’s total investment for the project is approximately THB 3 billion and will be ready to open in 2013.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotel Group, said, “We are very excited to announce this new addition to Minor’s portfolio and what will become a second Anantara resort in Phuket. Bundarika offers guests an exclusive retreat and is ideal to be rebranded to an Anantara next year after renovation and an operational improvement programme.”
