Luxury beachfront resort THE NAI HARN in Phuket, is limbering up for its eagerly awaited launch on December 28 this year with a recent team building event on Nai Harn Beach, voted as the Thailand’s Best Beach by TripAdvisor.
A total of 126 staff bonded over a host of games and activities, highlighted by a full beach cleaning activity on the famed beach after which the resort is named.
Located on beautiful Nai Harn, THE NAI HARN will offer 130 luxurious guest rooms and suites with panoramic views over the Andaman Sea, a bespoke luxury spa and a stunning new pool Rooftop Deck and food and beverage spaces.
The resort will provide authentic destination experiences, extraordinary culinary happenings and expertly curated connections to the best of island life and southern Thai culture – as well as touches of glamour and indulgence courtesy of a ‘Press For Champagne’ button on every terrace and decadent Beach Butler service on the beach.
The resort has also engaged the services of legendary barman, Salim Khoury, who worked at the American Bar at The Savoy in London for 34 years, and who will organise the set up, training and preparation of cocktail lists at all bars and be in residence for one month following the opening. He will use Chalong Bay Rum, an indigenous spirit to Phuket made from organically grown sugar cane from Thailand, to feature on the list.
Originally launched in 1986 and most recently named the Royal Phuket Yacht Club, THE NAI HARN has undergone an extensive 18-month remodeling programme during which time it has been closed to restore the legendary resort to the pinnacle of luxury hospitality.
High profile guests over the years have included Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, Prince Albert of Monaco, Prince Henrik of Denmark, former French president Jacques Chirac, the late actor Sir Peter Ustinov, dance legend Rudoph Nureyev, US actor Forest Whittaker and Roger Moore, who once fought Dr No on his famously eponymous James Bond Island off the coast of Phang Nga, a short speedboat hop away. www.thenaiharn.com
