Cachet signs Phuket resort

Cachet Hospitality Group has announced the signing of a management agreement for Cachet Resort Dewa Phuket, a conversion property owned by R&B Partners.

Located on Thailand’s largest island, the hotel marks the company’s second resort property, and adds to Cachet’s expanding portfolio in Southeast Asia, following on the heels of the recently announced Savant Vela Hotel – Bangkok.

Operations as a CHG managed property will begin May 2017, with interior renovations to be completed November 2017, helmed by Cachet Interior Design.

“We are honoured to collaborate with R&B Partners and eager to introduce the Cachet resort brand to this region,” explains Kimy Chen, President of Southeast Asia, Cachet Hospitality Group. “With 59 flights from Bangkok per day, Phuket is an extremely accessible and appealing vacation destination. Travellers to the island are ready to experience our acclaimed designs, enticing F&B programs and innovative amenities.”

Set beside the shores of Nai Yang Beach, the 128-key lifestyle resort is surrounded by the forest of Sirinat National Park, and situated a 7-minute drive from Phuket International Airport. The sprawling property will feature CHG’s signature offerings, including rejuvenating bath amenities, a grand arrival area, and global culinary experiences.

On-site facilities will include two dining venues, approximately 1,000m² of meeting and event spaces, a spa, fully equipped fitness centre, yoga-focused wellness centre, Kids Club, and two swimming pools.

Reinterpreted by CID, Cachet Resort Dewa Phuket’s standard guestrooms, villas and residential suites will feature sleek, contemporary interiors with polished concrete floors, deep mahogany, black marble, coconut shell finishes, and exposed ceilings. The contemporary aesthetic is balanced by incorporating classic Thai blue silk on the pillows, chairs, and beds, and adorning the guestrooms with authentic Thai sculptures and artwork.

The resort’s restaurants and bars will offer both Thai and international cuisine with personalised service and local and international chefs. The Aleta Restaurant Bar and Grill will serve up an array of dishes fusing its Mexican heritage with Thai flavour, while Stonehaus, the Californian wine bar brand, will offer premium drinks with a view.

“We are delighted to partner with Cachet Hospitality Group. As the Phuket market grows increasingly sophisticated, our prime Nai Yang Beach location is more coveted than ever,” comments Lars Ydmark, Managing Director of R&B Partners. “With our transformation into Cachet Resort Dewa Phuket and the introduction of Cachet’s exciting F&B and social programs, we are poised to set a new standard for what is Nai Yang Beach, Phuket.”
