“It’s an exciting time for Regent. The Phuket property will immediately become a flagship for the Regent brand in this absolutely crucial resort island market in Asia,” said Regent Hotels and Resorts’ president, Ralf Ohletz von Plettenberg.
Regent Phuket Cape Panwa is already welcoming guests, offering 70 rooms with panoramic sea views and 35 pool suites. The resort is located on Cape Panwa on the south-eastern tip of Phuket.
The hotel was designed by Bangkok-based Blink Design Group. Its founder and creative director, Clint Nagata, said the firm is helping Regent “return to its Asian roots”.
