How To Choose The Best Wedding Hotel In Phuket?wedding hotel phuket

Published by:

There are several hotels in Phuket island, most of them holding 3 to 5 stars according to popular ratings. But how do you know if this wedding hotel in Phuket is what you are searching for? Consider the following tips to make a great wedding, vacation and book the right accommodation that meets your needs and preferences:

Location

You may think that this hotel in Phuket is nearby the airport and located along the beach, but there are hundreds of other places where you can find a room most suitable for your stay. Phuket island is surrounded by four different regions, three of which are hardly ever accessed by tourists. You will definitely stay in a hotel in Western Phuket. Closest to the airport is Bang Thao Beach and further away is Kata Beach. While all beaches have pristine white sand, the Bang Thao Beach is livelier with thousands of people and its active nightlife, while Kata Beach is more quiet and relaxed. There are other beaches in between that provide unique features with tourist activities tapering off as you travel down south toward the Kata area.

Weddings and Romance

Weddings are typically happening in the island of Phuket. A couple and their guests can book themselves in a wedding hotel in Phuket for this momentous event. The hotel will have accessories and joyousness intended for this special day. Try to search for a five-star hotel with privacy, dining intimacy and private spas for a quality time with your new spouse. Many hotels feature two to four bedrooms within a suite so they can bring along family and friends for the event. It will be a trip to remember not only for the newlyweds but also for their guests.

Taking the Family

A ‘kid friendly’ hotel in Phuket will make the family enjoy the experience of visiting the island. You need to be around other families, provided with game rooms and babysitting facilities to make the vacation seem comfortable. Hotels that cater to families will have special accommodations for youngsters and even host supervised activities, tours or sports. Find a wedding hotel in Phuket that is homey to families and can even offer special rates and meals for children. With all the fun activities happening around, parents can sneak out in the afternoon or evenings to spend quality time by themselves.

Office Sharing Spreads Throughout Southeast Asia

In Bangkok, a new, co-working office space owned by the Amsterdam-based Spaces is will be opening in February 2018, one of many office sharing spaces taking up prime office & retail space not only across Thailand, but across the whole Southeast Asian region.

For Spaces, a subsidiary of Switzerland’s International Workplace Group, this new site is their first foray into Thailand, but the second location for the company in the region, having set up in Singapore back in 2016. Among Spaces’ many clients are giants like Booking.com, GoPro and PayPal, among others. It currently has plans to increase their 80 sites to 250, with the Southeast Asian market to include Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia, to name a few.

Office sharing started in North America as an effect of the startup culture, providing entrepreneurs with prime office & retail space for a fraction of the usual cost. In Southeast Asia, co-working is still in its infancy, but with expatriates and local entrepreneurs driving up demand, the office sharing market is set to grow.

CB Insights, a managing consulting firm, estimates that co-working spaces could make up 15% of the Southeast Asia’s prime office & retail space by 2030; compared to 2018’s 5%s. Cushman & Wakefield, meanwhile, forecast that co-working space demand across Asia will grow at about 10-15% annually.

Meanwhile, in other areas in Southeast Asia, Common Ground, a Malaysian startup firm, opened its very first co-working space in Kuala Lumpur at March of 2017, and, according to the company, the 17,000ft2 of space they managed to hit full occupancy within four months. They are just one of many co-working space operators across the country providing supply for the region.

Property consultancy firm CBRE published a report of co-working space, detailing costs, and giving out their advice for those moving into the co-working operation market. According to them, market operators need to keep their costs in check, as well as keep an eye on supply-demand dynamics, with competition in the field intensifying as more and more co-working spaces open across Southeast Asia. This increase in supply will drive up occupancy costs and clamp down profit margins.

CBRE says that the most important points for running a co-working space is building a community, providing an experience, and opportunities for both learning and profit for users.
