Phuket’s THB4.5 Billion Andamanda is Open!

Thailand’s newest integrated resort, the Andamanda Phuket will soft open next week on 21st May 2022. Styled as a leisure and entertainment offering, a water park debut will be the first phase of a larger development by Thailand’s Proud Group with a total investment of THB4.5 billion (USD134 million).

Andamanda will bring a world-class attraction to the resort island featuring 12 slides, 36 activities, and a 10,000 square meter wave pool. Thai culture is a recurring theme with a storyline on the legend of The Lost Kingdom of Nagon. The water park attractions have been designed by WhiteWater West whose credentials include Disney, Six Flags, and Atlantis.


Located in the fast-developing Kathu area, which is strategically situated between Phuket Town (City) and Patong, easy access to Andamanda will be aided by a significant new infrastructure project. The long-awaited Patong Tunnel made news in January of this year when Thailand’s Cabinet approved a THB14.7 billion budget for both a four-lane tunnel and expressway connection to Kathu. Expected to complete by 2027, Kathu is expected to evolve into the island’s new CBD area with key economic indicators such as Central Festival and Floresta already established as the island’s centerpiece.

BKK Social Club was crowned the best bar in Thailand. Located within the Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok, BKK Social Club secured the best bar in Thailand award as well as a place in the top 10 rankings.

BKK Social Club is followed by Tropic City (No. 17), Vesper (No. 19), Asia Today (No. 43), and The Bamboo Bar (No. 46).

Including the 4 Bangkok bars in the 51-100 ranking released earlier last week, brings Thailand to a grand total of 9 bars on the 1-100 list. It is a highly commendable recognition, given that (lest we forget), alcohol was banned for a majority period of the pandemic. Thereby we applaud our local industry greatly — on the list or not.

Amazing Thailand, Amazing New Chapters!

After the Great Lockdown, The Tourism Authority of Thailand is anticipating the Great Reboot and of course the Great Rebound. The launch of a new marketing campaign Amazing Thailand's "Amazing New Chapters" focuses on three New Chapters inviting the world’s travelers to experience a deeper connection with the Kingdom’s unique culture and precious environment.

Chapter 1: Awaken Your Senses

This chapter highlights tourism products and services that will awaken all five senses; delicious Thai cuisine and the picturesque natural scenery discovered throughout the kingdom.

Chapter 2: The One You Love

Chapter 2 focuses on tourism segments including families, couples, and friends, inviting travelers to create beautiful memories together in Thailand.

Chapter 3: The Earth We Care

This chapter aims to highlight how nature has been revitalized. The COVID-19 situation has increased ecotourism awareness among the world’s travelers and how their behavior has impacted the environment. There is an increasing trend to spending more time in nature and being increasingly conscious of the impact on natural resources.

Another focus for TAT is to communicate a passion for Responsible Travel, something tourism operators throughout Thailand have embraced, providing a higher quality experience for their guests as a result. This has been achieved by considering all tourism implications on the environment, wildlife, plantations, and local Thai communities, providing tourists with a more meaningful experience.
