Outrigger Hotels and Resorts today announced that it will manage the idyllic Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and Spa as its third hotel property in Thailand. Outrigger assumed full sales and marketing responsibility for the resort on November 3, 2011, and will have complete operational control by November 1, 2012. The resort will continue to operate under its current name, Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and Spa, until November 1, 2012, at which time it will be rebranded as "Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and Spa".

Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and Spa, which has 112 villas, four restaurants, two bars, a spa, fitness centre, and a dive and activity centre, is located on the quiet northern peninsula of Phi Phi Don island. The whole area is characterized by white powder sands, colourful coral reefs, turquoise waters and spectacular views of the inner Andaman Sea. The resort is a much sought-after property, ranking first of 36 Phi Phi Don island properties on TripAdvisor®, the world's largest travel site offering consumer generated reviews, photos, and advice on hotels, attractions, restaurants, and vacations. Phi Phi Island is located 30 miles from Phuket and 26 miles from Krabi in the Andaman Sea in southern Thailand. The island can be accessed by public ferries as well as the hotel's new private luxury boat. Both Phuket and Krabi are serviced by domestic and international flights.

Thirty-eight new villas will be built over the next year, bringing the total number of villas in the resort to 150. Renovations worth US$1.7 million will be made to the property to align it with Outrigger's brand standards prior to the resort's relaunch as Outrigger Phi Phi Island Resort and Spa on November 1, 2012.

Darren Edmonstone, Outrigger's Managing Director for the Asia-Pacific region, said: "Phi Phi island is famous for its absolutely majestic scenery, and the Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort and Spa is a magical, award-winning property. We are proud to have been chosen to manage this iconic resort and welcome this property into our growing collection of beachfront resort hotels in Asia-Pacific."
