Chalong - New resort.

Recommended Posts

For Information.

In another thread I once asked if anyone knew what was planned for the cleared area on the waterfront between Kan Eang 2 and the Yacht Club.

It seems a new resort is planned- The Passport Resort and Yacht Club is about to begin construction. It will abut the sea wall, and promotional pics show large motor vessels tied up a few meters away (Difficult to achieve I would have thought as it is tidal and very shallow).

There are containers on site at the moment, probably as temporary offices/worker accommodation.   What they have also recently installed is a floating jetty, which reaches deeper water at low tide.

That is Ao Chalong Villa Resort and Spa, and you are correct, it is still in business.

A group of what seemed to be houses (now demolished) on the new Passport site, were called Bungalow Ao Chalong.

I know it's called that. I know the owner (Thai/Chinese guy). It was odd that a Google search brought it up at the same location, leaving me to assume it was the same place.

I got the Bungalow name from an historical look at the site on GE. It is described as a guest house.

I guess it is this one

Wyndham Chalong Phuket, slated to open in 2Q2020 and also owned by Cissa Group, will feature 150 pool villas, including two- and three-bedroom options. Located near Chalong Bay, the resort will also offer an all-day restaurant, a bar, a spa, a fitness centre and modern meeting spaces.

And for those interested in Nai Harn:

Wyndham Nai Harn Resort Phuket, scheduled to open in 4Q2019, will become the first internationally-branded hotel in the Nai Harn area of Phuket. Owned by Cissa Group, the resort will boast a large swimmable lagoon covering the entire ground floor, flowing between the buildings and directly accessible from many of the 353 rooms and suites. Other features include restaurants, a swim-up bar, a rooftop garden and lounge, a spa and wellness centre as well as meeting rooms.

No. The resort that is subject of this thread was named in the first post. It's situated on prime land right on the bay and work is due to begin very shortly.

The place to which you refer is in a back street area near the zoo. It would be more accurately described as a residential villa project than a resort.

Wyndham also have a project in Kata. Seems like they're investing a few baht.
