On March 28th 2011 at Royal Phuket City Hotel, Mr.Somkiat Sangkhaosutthirak, a Vice Governor of Phuket, presided over the opening of the workshop called “The way to create uniqueness of Andaman spas”. There were 120 spa entrepreneurs, related government and private sectors who attended the workshop.
Mr.Sompong Onprasert, Head of Office of Commercial Affairs Phuket said “Now there are 200 spas in Phuket with a total of a 10,000 bed capacity. Spa business generates 1,000-2,000 million baht of income to the country. The government wants to support this to be the selling point of Andaman Provinces.
Consequently, the spas in these regions should express their uniqueness together with the local wisdom of Thai therapy into their businesses. Moreover, there must be a marketing strategy development, service quality development and a franchise business support to make this business more strong.”
