Thailand to Open Two New Holiday Inns

Holiday Inn is expanding its presence in Asia with the debut of Holiday Inn Resort Phuket Mai Khao Beach and the Holiday Inn Express Phuket Patong Beach Central in Thailand.

The resort has 246 guest rooms and sits right on the Andaman Sea. Rooms feature walk-in rain showers, wireless internet, balconies and more.  Guests have access to a beachfront infinity pool, a leisure center and fitness center, as well as the Tea Tree Spa.

Dining options span three restaurants and bars offering both local and international cuisine.

Agents should book this resort for families due to its KidSuites facilities. These rooms offer privacy for both parents and children, each with separate sleeping areas. The kids' section of the suite comes with a bunk bed and a play corner complete with flat screen TV, DVD player and game console.

The Holiday Inn Express is scheduled to debut in 2013.  It will feature 280 rooms with facilities such as the Great Room, meeting rooms, gym and swimming pool
