Three of Absolute World Group’s luxury properties in Thailand are the latest additions to Interval International’s expanding global portfolio, it has just been announced.
The resorts, which all enjoy idyllic locations in the region, are:
– Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa, a mixed-use resort set on a picturesque headland on the southwest coast of the popular holiday island of Phuket
– Absolute South Beach Resort, another mixed-use development located on Pratumnak Hill in the up-and-coming area of South Pattaya
– The Beach Samui, an ultra-luxury destination resort on one of the most pristine and undeveloped beaches on the island of Koh Samui.
“Our latest resorts are located in newly developed areas, away from throngs of tourists,” said Bryan Lunt, Absolute World Group Chairman and CEO. “While each of these eclectic boutique properties has a unique character, they also boast the highest standard amenities that have become our hallmark. We’re delighted to expand our already successful relationship with Interval and invite its members to enjoy our new resorts.”
Nestling between two white sand beaches, yet minutes from the Phuket beach resort town of Patong, Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa is an ideal choice for both families and couples looking for a relaxing getaway.
The beautifully landscaped grounds include a multi-level infinity swimming pool, a wellness spa and a fully equipped fitness centre. The restaurant serves both locally sourced traditional Thai and Mediterranean food and for guests who’d rather eat in, all the studio and one- and two-bedroom apartments have full kitchens. The apartments also feature balconies with beautiful views, state-of-the-art audio visual equipment, including an LCD TV and home theatre sound bar, and are perfectly equipped for a completely stress-free “home from home” luxury stay.
Absolute South Beach Resort is a “boutique chic” resort south of Pattaya City, a destination which has recently been undergoing resurgence in development. On-site, there is a rooftop swimming pool and sundeck with panoramic views of the ocean across to the bright lights of the city. A secluded beach is an easy 10-minute stroll and there are plenty of options for shopping, dining and nightlife nearby. The bright, modern studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments have full kitchens and LCD TVs.
The third resort, The Beach Samui, is situated in the sleepy fishing village of Thong Krut on the undeveloped southern tip of Koh Samui. This dream location away from it all overlooks turquoise water, sheltering red coral reefs rimmed by a pristine white sand beach, and lush coconut groves.
Guests will be able to enjoy the truly panoramic views from the resort’s infinity pool of the necklace of islands which make up Moo Koh Ang Thong National Marine Park.
Facilities will include an onsite steam room, plunge pool, spa treatment rooms, fully equipped gym, as well as beachside cabanas and a yoga sala. The concierge will be on hand to organise offsite golf, scuba diving excursions and speedboat rentals.
Due to complete at the end of this year, all units will have uninterrupted ocean views with open plan interiors designed by internationally acclaimed Yoo Design Studio, and each apartment will boast a private terrace with hot tub, rain shower, Wi-Fi, iPod dock, 50-inch satellite TV, and DVD player.
