JW Marriott, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary hotel brands, has announced the opening of the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, an all-suite luxury retreat nestled in a beautiful beachside setting on southern Thailand’s Andaman coast.
The resort’s 52 stylish two-bedroom suites range from 89 to 111 square meters with bright indoor and outdoor spaces, Southern Thai-inspired design, contemporary living areas and private terraces or balconies that overlook the natural tropical surroundings. On the ground floor, a collection of pool access suites allows guests to step straight into the inviting 2.4 km-long lagoon swimming pool, Southeast Asia’s longest.
JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites shares the extensive facilities of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, and is located in the box seat for family activities, overlooking the new Aqua Play Zone, an exhilarating destination for families and where the water fun, literally, lasts all day long. Highlights include the wave pool where kids and families get the chance to duck and dive before heading over to the fountain trampoline, an inventive activity designed for, what else, jumping!
The aqua theme continues with a waterslide and outdoor playground before kids and parents can retreat to the Sala Restaurant & Bar, a cool, casual outlet serving comfortable, familiar and healthy classics. Sala is expected to quickly become basecamp for kids during their stay so they are close to the action – and can take part in the daily pasta making, mixology masterclasses and marshmallow roasting held at Sala.
Friends and family can also have a go at Muay Thai Sea Boxing, a hilarious but highly competitive sport where two boxers sit astride a poll and try to knock each other off. One of many other activities available are helping the environment in the Art of Trash workshop, or guests can simply cruise around the 2.4 km pool on their floating hammocks, grabbing an ice-cold fresh coconut on the way courtesy of the resort boats that ply the waters - before catching a movie at the beach. Alternatively, families can enjoy a beach picnic in our family tents – or enjoy the interactive Teppanyaki Show at Sakura Japanese restaurant.
The resort’s collection of 11 restaurants and bars offer an array of dining choices, ranging from traditional Thai cuisine with sunset views at Ta-Krai to authentic Italian cuisine at Olive, and international fare at Waterfront. New additions include Sala Restaurant & Pool Bar, while Drift Beach Bar & Grill is the resort’s new steak and seafood grill, inspired by regional Mediterranean cuisine. All-day refreshments and cocktails can be enjoyed at the Deli, Beach Bar, Infinity Pool Bar, Aquamarine Pool Bar and Czar Lobby Bar.
Family vacations are all about reconnecting with your loved ones, and a key ingredient for this is the JW Garden, an outdoor space dedicated to cultivating organic vegetables and herbs. Here families are guided by the resort’s chef to pick fresh ingredients and learn how to cook Thai dishes. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a family picnic among the fragrant herbs and flowers, or even in the privacy of their own suite or villa.
The unique Suites experience also provides access to state-of-the-art meeting facilities, a fully-equipped fitness center, tennis and squash courts, the Kids Club and Quan Spa, which offers holistic healing therapies from traditional Thai massages to revitalizing body wraps and scrubs, many of which use organic coconut oil produced onsite at the resort. A series of serene spaces such as cozy cabanas let guests reconnect and create memorable moments, whilst Khuk Khak Beach offers an idyllic setting to stroll, splash or sit in the shade of palm trees.
“The opening of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, with its spacious accommodation and outstanding service co-located with the expanded and renovated JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, provides the perfect accommodation option for families, young and old, enabling all guests to come together and create meaningful connections,” said Jakob Helgen, Area Vice President – Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmar, Marriott International.
“I am delighted to unveil JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites and to welcome travelers from around the world,” said Abhimanyu Singh, General Manager, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites. “The JW Marriott brand focuses on what matters most in life, connecting with our loved ones and enriching the mind, body and spirit.”
