|Notes from Managing Director
As the family who owns the resort love traveling and relaxing amidst the beauty and serenity of nature, Andaman Princess Resort & Spa was founded two years ago with the vision of "providing leisure travelers who visit Koh Kor Khao, a premium accommodation which offers flawless service as well as total relaxation and privacy"
According to Mr. Thanongsak Tangsawatdirat, the resort's Managing Director, "they chose Koh Kor Khao as the island offers the guests″ the true beauty of nature in an unspoilt location which can provide optimum relaxation".
The resort's sprawling area of 19 acres houses eighty-two well-appointed guest rooms (62 Deluxe Rooms, 16 Villas and 4 suites) which come complete with a private balcony and modern amenities. The Thai Heritage Villas feature classic atmosphere with high ceiling and full length panoramic bay windows with large bathrooms overlooking inner gardens and surrounding pools.
There are also restaurants within the vicinity of the resort to satisfy their guests' gustatory needs. All-day dining can be enjoyed on the upper floor of the main building while the Lobby Bar & Lounge is the place to sip cocktails and drinks while listening to live music in the evening. For a more romantic setting, the Beachside Restaurant offers seafood and Oriental cuisine overlooking the beautiful Andaman Sea.
For pampering needs, the on-site spa is a haven of tranquility which provides soothing and relaxing treatments. A host of other services and activities are available at the resort so the adventure-seeking guests can enjoy sightseeing, water sports and yacht cruising.
The resort is catered to middle class and high end travelers, offering exceptional accommodation and services with prices lower than other resorts with similar standards. With the current global economic crisis, Mr. Thanongsak is positive that it will not greatly affect the hotel industry since "many high end travelers still continue to travel and major international hotel brands and independent hoteliers are increasingly developing hotels and resorts". They have in fact increased in number of bookings and the property is getting hugely popular in Russia aside from the Scandinavian, German, Swiss, and British markets.
Under Mr. Thanongsak's leadership, they are continually working towards more improvements in the resort's services and facilities to only bring the best to their guests and to be one of the leading resorts in southern Thailand.
With a planned airport construction in a few years' time, the future looks bright for both the Andaman Princess Resort & Spa and the Phang- Nga tourism.
