Interval International Adds Three Absolute World Group Resorts To Its Global Vacation Exchange Network
Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the addition to its portfolio of three new Absolute World Group resorts located in prime vacation destinations in Thailand.
They include 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; and The Beach Samui, an ultra-luxury destination resort on one of the most pristine and undeveloped beaches on the island of Koh Samui. This trio of resorts joins the three Absolute resorts in Thailand that are part of Interval’s global exchange network.
Tucked between two white sand beaches, yet only minutes from the Phuket beach resort town of Patong, Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa has something for both families and couples. The beautifully landscaped grounds include a multi-level infinity swimming pool, a wellness spa and a fully equipped fitness centre. The resort also has a full-service restaurant serving locally sourced traditional Thai and Mediterranean food. The studio and one- and two-bedroom apartments all have private balconies with sea views, full kitchens, and state-of-the-art audio visual equipment, including an LCD TV and home theatre sound bar.
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.
Situated in the sleepy fishing village of Thong Krut on the undeveloped southern tip of Koh Samui, The Beach Samui overlooks turquoise water, sheltering red coral reefs rimmed by a pristine white sand beach, and lush coconut groves. Guests will enjoy panoramic views from the resort’s infinity pool of the necklace of islands making up Moo Koh Ang Thong National Marine Park. There also will be an onsite steam room, plunge pool, spa treatment rooms, fully equipped gym, as well as beachside cabanas and a yoga sala. The concierge will organise offsite golf, scuba diving excursions and speedboat rentals. When completed at the end of the year, all units will have uninterrupted ocean views with open plan interiors designed by internationally acclaimed Yoo Design Studio. Plans call for each apartment to have a private terrace with hot tub, rain shower, Wi-Fi, iPod dock, 50-inch satellite TV, and DVD player.
