The 390-key hotel will feature a rooftop beach club, rooftop pool, restaurants, lounge, grab-go kiosk gym, spa, movie theatre, video arcade, and kids’ club. At the lobby, guests will be greeted by the hotel’s mascot – a life-sized sculpture of a red lacquered elephant wearing earphones – and a red tuk-tuk, a nod to Thailand’s most prominent national icons.

The property is also nearby the beach and surrounded by retail malls, restaurants and nightlife.

Ramzy Fenianos, chief development officer, Asia-Pacific, RHG, said: “With its striking design, upbeat vibe and the flexibility to let guests seamlessly switch between business and leisure, Radisson Red has the power to inject new life into hotels and destinations. This makes it the perfect fit for Patong Beach, one of Thailand’s most dynamic tourism hubs.”

“This is the first hotel to be designed to meet the desires of (post-lockdown) travellers to Phuket. We are not just selling a room, but more so, we are selling an amazing Instagrammable experience in our resorts,” added Gary Murray, founder & CEO, Destination Group.

RHG currently operates six hotels in Thailand across four brands in Bangkok, Phuket and Hua Hin, with further expansion plans in the pipeline.
