PHUKET, THAILAND — Global hospitality group Golden Tulip has launched operations in Phuket with the opening of the luxury Golden Tulip Mangosteen Resort and Spa, the tropical island’s only location to experience world-renowned ancient Ayurveda Spa techniques.
The all-villa resort’s secluded location in Phuket’s serene mountains offers unrivalled views of Phuket Town, its surrounding bays and out to the islands of the Andaman Sea. Villas offer privacy with outside garden bathrooms and rain showers, private Jacuzzis and quiet terraces with hammocks.
The resort is also just minutes away from pristine beaches and prime shopping districts from its tropical hillside location.
The former Mangosteen Resort & Spa has undergone an inspirational re-fit since Golden Tulip re-flagged the property and is the perfect place to relax, chill out and enjoy the excellent views, perfectly complimented by Thai hospitality and the much sought after Ayurvedic Spa experience.
Claude Baltes, the General Manager of the Golden Tulip Mangosteen Resort and Spa said the company had invested heavily in bringing the resort up to Golden Tulip standards, especially in relation to being the only Ayurveda Spa destination in Phuket.
“Phuket remains an extremely popular destination for domestic and overseas visitors and we are certainly proud of our Ayurveda Spa and the team of managers and therapists we have welcomed on board at the resort to compliment the overall experience we provide,” Mr Baltes said.
“The underlying principle of Ayurveda is that prevention is better than a cure. The emphasis for any programme at our spa is on individual diagnosis – Ayurveda considers diet, lifestyle and toxicity to eliminate the root cause of illness. Ayurveda is a way of life we are delighted to be able to bring to our resort.
“This together with our cosy, yet chic location in the hills and our close proximity to some wonderful beaches indicates Golden Tulip are on the right track engaging this resort and spa as a core launch pad to our expansion in Thailand and Asia.”
The Golden Tulip Mangosteen Resort and Spa’s food and beverage menus are wide and varied in its fine dining restaurant, equipped with its own private underground wine cellar, to combine fine beverages with a succulent selection of Asian, western and Mediterranean dishes.
