IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) announces that its Luxury & Lifestyle collection brand, Vignette Collection, will come to the famed beach destination of Patong in partnership with Dinso Resort Co, Ltd in mid-2023.
The sustainability focused Dinso Resort Phuket, Vignette Collection will be IHG’s fourth opened or pipeline Vignette Collection property in Thailand, following the launch of its 17th and newest brand last year. Built mainly through the use of wooden materials, the luxury escape is seamlessly integrated into its hillside surroundings and welcomes guests seeking a tranquil, nature-based getaway.
Saowarin Chanprakaisi, Director, Development, South East Asia and Korea, IHG, said: “It’s fantastic to work with first-time partner Dinso Resort Co., Ltd to open our fourth Vignette Collection hotel in Thailand. We see a demand for authentic and experiential experiences, and with the spotlight on environmental and social issues, meaningful and responsible stays. This new collaboration shows confidence in the purpose-driven Vignette Collection brand in the market, which has grown quickly since the successful opening of Sindhorn Midtown, our first Vignette Collection property, in Bangkok earlier this year.
“Situated in the popular destination of Patong, Dinso Resort Phuket, Vignette Collection will add to IHG’s growing presence in Phuket, where we have hotels across four of our world-renowned brands – InterContinental, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. Before the pandemic, Phuket attracted over 10 million visitors per year and, after Bangkok, was the most visited destination in Thailand. We look forward to welcoming guests to this beautiful hillside resort.”
Wanchai Akkaravivat, Managing Director, Dinso Resort Co., Ltd, said: “We have always had a strong vision for Dinso Resort – to be a design-led and lifestyle-focused nature resort that’s built carefully, thoughtfully and sustainably. We took our time to develop its barefoot luxury experience coupled with its own distinct character and identity, and when we saw Vignette Collection come to life in Thailand, we knew it was the perfect brand for our property.
“We have found the ideal partner in IHG, have seen their success in launching new brands in new markets, including the InterContinental brand into Phuket, and fully believe in its ability to deliver results while making a positive impact on the Phuket community. As a Vignette Collection hotel, Dinso Resort will offer a one-of-a-kind stay with memorable rituals for every guest and a commitment to support the Phuket community.”
A 60-minute drive from Phuket International Airport and just eight minutes from the bustling tourism hub of Patong, Dinso Resort Phuket enjoys a hillside location that offers guests an exclusive and immersive nature getaway.
Certain to attract families, couples and friends alike, the hotel offers a choice of 148 rooms and suites and 26 tree-top pool villas with stunning views of the Patong coast. Facilities will also include two restaurants and bars, a meeting room of 150 square metres, a swimming pool, fitness centre and spa. The property enjoys easy access to the picturesque, white sand Patong Beach, and a wide array of restaurants, bars, night markets and shopping centres.
IHG has 30 hotels across nine brands in Thailand and a pipeline of 36* properties which are set to open as it grows its Luxury and Lifestyle portfolio in the country by 50% by 2026, while doubling its estate across all brands.
Dinso Resort Phuket, Vignette Collection will support the brand’s continued global expansion since its launch in 2021. With three hotels already open and six in its global pipeline across markets including Austria, Portugal and Thailand, Vignette Collection is a collection of luxury hotels in vibrant destinations around the world – each unique in its own right, with a distinct outlook and story to tell.
Dinso Resort Phuket will be open for bookings via IHG website here and will be part of the Vignette Collection in mid-2023.
