On 20 October, Laguna Phuket welcomed more than 300 guests and members of the press to “Cassia Unveilings”, the opening event of its seventh hotel Cassia Phuket.
Guests were welcomed by G.M. Mr. Ilias Vamvakas and enjoyed refreshments throughout the evening before a flame ceremony kicked off celebratory fireworks marking the official opening of the property.
“Tonight is really a very special night. Twenty one years ago we launched a new brand in Phuket that was the Banyan Tree Phuket. Now, Banyan Tree Phuket is twenty one years old, it is mature, but now we have launched a new baby tonight,” said Mr. KP Ho during his speech,
“From today onwards, the Cassia brand will be open to the world. We already have other Cassia projects in development in Indonesia, China and elsewhere but we are so happy that, like Banyan Tree, Cassia was born here. We are truly committed to the future of Phuket. We have invested in and developed seven hotels in Phuket, hundreds of property units, golf course, socially responsible activities. To us, Phuket is truly our second home.”
Located within Laguna Phuket, Cassia offers 221 residences featuring one- and two-bedroom apartments, each with a separate living room and fully equipped kitchen. The resort also boasts free Wi-Fi, two pools, a spacious area at Bang Tao Beach, indoor and outdoor kids’ play areas, Chill Chill Spa and touch-screen concierge.
“Our concept is straight forward; Live, Laugh, Love Your Way. Choice is for you!” said Mr. Ilias Vamvakas, General Manager of Cassia Phuket,
“The hotel is stylish, colourful and cozy in itself, and as soon as you walked a bit further inside, you will see this magnificent lagoon and clear view over the beautiful Bangtao Beach. So when these elements are combined, it creates a unique experience with which we are sure our guests will fall in love,” he concluded.
