Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts proudly announces the signing of a new property The Passage, Koh Samui Resort in Thailand.  Rebranded as Mövenpick Resort Laem Yai Beach Samui, the prime beach front property will re-open under Mövenpick management in November 2014.


The hotel will be the third property in Thailand, alongside the Bangtao and Karon Beach hotels in Phuket, to be managed by the upscale international hospitality company.

Known for Swiss efficiency in service and operational excellence, Mövenpick officially signed the property on May 15, 2014. The group will oversee refurbishments in line with its high standards which are a hallmark of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. The renovations will include the introduction of 23 new deluxe rooms as well as a series of upgrades to current amenities.

As one of the key locations on Laem Yai beach in Samui, the Mövenpick property is a boutique resort offering striking beach-front views which are famed for spectacular sunsets. Just 18km from Samui International airport, the hotel is only a short distance from the island’s vibrant port town of Nathorn, with its myriad of markets, shops and restaurants.

Commenting on the importance of the Thailand market, Andreas Mattmüller, chief operating officer, Middle East & Asia says: “This region is a significant growth sector for our brand, with the country seeing a 19.6% growth increase in tourism for 2013; we believe our resort on Laem Yai Beach is a great asset for us and offers huge potential”.

Tossapol Satitwittayakul, Executive Director of the Thana Group, the hotel’s owning company added: “Through our association with Mövenpick we see strong potential for progress thanks to the company’s international reach. Working together, we are committed to building on the best customer experience in Samui”.

Due to ongoing and sustainable success in the Asian market, Mövenpick is turning its attention increasingly to Thailand, with plans to operate five properties by 2015. Locations set to open in 2015 include White Sand Beach, Pattaya and Chiang Mai, Suriwongse. Further projects in the country include properties at Hua Hin and Chiang Mai to open in 2017.
