The GLOW hotel brand is shining a fresh light on the popular tourist destination of Phuket with the grand opening of GLOW Mira Karon Beach this month.
Located a few minute’s walk from the white powder sands of one of Phuket’s longest beaches, the hotel holds a prime position with easy access to the ocean and the area’s lively dining and nightlife scene. The property features two main dining outlets, the all-day restaurant, Chen’s, and the chill Lobby Bar, as well as a Pool Bar, for light bites and drinks.
Chen’s offers guests the choice of indoor or outdoor seating with a private terrace surrounded by tropical foliage. The menu ranges from traditional Thai favorites, such as curries, stir-fries, and noodle dishes, to western-style comfort food like burgers, pasta, and pizza.
The 154-room hotel has a selection of room types ranging from the 20m2 Standard (King) through to Family Suites, at 42m2, with bunk beds for the children and a plush king-sized bed for adults. All rooms also feature a 49” flat screen TV, air conditioning, and a rain shower and handheld shower in private bathrooms, along with private balconies to drink in the sea view. The contemporary playful design, with pops of bold colors, is inspired by the island’s heritage and the colorful Sino-Portuguese style of Old Phuket town. This vibrant aesthetic can be found throughout the hotel, including in the spacious lobby area.
“With our newest GLOW hotel in Phuket, we wanted to create a fun, contemporary place that also incorporated elements of the island’s rich history,” said Markus Gloor, Director of Operations.
GLOW Mira Karon Beach also features a 24-hour fitness center with a full selection of cardio equipment and weights.
The property is the seventh GLOW hotel to open in Thailand and the latest addition to the Fusion Hotel Group’s growing portfolio. In July the company opened Fusion Original Saigon Centre in Vietnam and the group has plans to open a new GLOW property in Bangkok in December 2022.
