Nestled in the fantastic Southeast Asia yacht vacation location – Thailand, the Royal Phuket Marina is expected to become a leading destination for charter yachts and private yachts in Asia, thanks to a five-year five billion baht (approx. USD150 million) investment plan. This was unveiled by the five-star superyacht marina under a new campaign called ♯DestinationRPM.
“The Five Billion Baht planned investment over the next five years is part of my vision to make Royal Phuket Marina an iconic waterfront lifestyle destination,” says Royal Phuket Marina Chairman Gulu Lalvani. “Under our ♯DestinationRPM campaign, Royal Phuket Marina will become a destination in its own right – a thriving residential and business community and a destination that will support Phuket tourism attracting visitors from around the world.”
The plan includes two hotels, a low-rise condominium development, a water facility, marina expansion and the addition of a state-of-the-art RPM Children’s Zone. In terms of marina expansion, Royal Phuket Marina will present a groundbreaking top-class dry stack system, the first of its kind in Thailand, whereby yacht owners can store their luxury vessels under cover, protected from the elements, as one would with a Rolls-Royce or Ferrari. A concierge service will ensure yachts are in the water and ready to go anytime, upon request of an owner. The expansion will see the marina accommodate 250 yachts.
The five-year investment plan will secure Royal Phuket Marina’s position as the premier lifestyle destination in Phuket for residents and visitors, as well as an iconic waterfront lifestyle destination in Asia.
