Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort unveiled in Thailand
Beach resort brand Outrigger Resorts revealed the innovative design features at the newly branded Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort. The resort welcomes its first guests on 15 December 2021.
Ideal for both couples seeking romance and families, the beachfront property offers 158 rooms, suites and villas, with room sizes varying from 40 to 77sqm. Couples can enjoy villas with a private plunge pool – perfect for honeymooners. Shortly after opening, families will also be able to experience a newly-built Coral Kids’ Club – which will include a playground and games room.
The resort redesign was conceived by Bangkok-based Santhaya & Associates (S+A), an award-winning architectural firm and partner with Outrigger since 2013 for projects in Thailand, Fiji and Mauritius.
Designs for Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort were inspired by the local environment.
Sophie Bughin, a partner at Santhaya & Associates, said: "As designers on this project, our aim is that guests feel a seamless connection between sea, sand and the green tropical landscape. We are combining local culture, a sense of discovery and features such as textured prints and outrigger canoe motifs."
At Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort, a large landscaped garden is featured in the heart of the resort. The garden leads down to the beachside pool, then rows of casuarina trees and over six kilometres of uninterrupted fine sand on Bang Sak beach.
New culinary elements will be showcased, including the new beachfront Edgewater Bar & Grill, which features pool lounge chairs, sofas, daybeds, tropical swing chairs, mood lighting and music. It exudes a relaxed vibe and presents a menu of favourite western and Asian dishes. The large open kitchen will showcase the chefs at work.
"We aim to create an enticing ‘chill-out’ atmosphere with sensational food and drinks served all day," said Joerg Hontheim, Outrigger’s Area Director for Food and Beverage in Thailand.
In addition to Outrigger Khao Lak Beach Resort, Outrigger will also open the Outrigger Surin Beach Resort in Phuket on 15 December. Outrigger
Koh Samui Beach Resort is scheduled to open by Easter 2022
All guest rooms in the three new Outrigger Thailand properties will include wall-stencilled palm fronds, vintage black and white artworks, colourful murals, bamboo pendant lamps and rope details inspired by traditional outrigger canoes.
"The intention is that Outrigger Resorts in Thailand, while being quite different, will also share a common design DNA and clearly be seen as sister properties," said Faun Israsena Na Ayudhya, Managing Director of Santhaya & Associates.
Outrigger Khao Lak is SHA Plus Certified and all Outrigger hosts are 100% vaccinated.
From now through 5 December guests can book this property at up to 25% off using promo code CYBER21 at www.outrigger.com.
