Banyan Tree debuts its new brand, Cassia Residences, in Thailand

A completely new hospitality concept combining hotel and serviced apartments, Banyan Tree’s newest brand, Cassia Residences, features cutting-edge design, colourful street art and customised living and dining options.

Opening within the Group’s integrated beach resort of Laguna Phuket, Cassia Residences Phuket has been designed for families, friends and couples seeking the freedom to create their own space, craft their own holiday and fully immerse themselves in the local culture and environment.

Cassia Phuket brings a fresh approach to hospitality with 221 stylish residences complemented by a special opening offer that can be tailored to the specific needs of guests. Cassia Phuket’s offering includes one and two-bedroom apartments, each with a separate living room and fully-equipped kitchen.

Cassia Friends (the nickname for Cassia’s staff) are on hand to take care of guests and recommend the best local sights and sounds; from sunbathing on the best beaches and checking out Phuket’s spectacular night scene; to enjoying island-hopping tours, spa massages and Thai boxing classes.  Cassia Friends will be the guests’ go-to team for an enjoyable holiday.

During pre-arrival, guests can choose different stay options on the website – preferred apartment packages, airport transfer methods, spa and room add-ons, a la-carte housekeeping and tour packages.  Guests choose what they pay for at Cassia Phuket.

Cassia Phuket boasts original features such as mezzanine areas and 24-hours seamless Wi-Fi for comfortable, fuss-free living as well as a wide collection of facilities including pools, a gym, mini convenience mart, home-delivery service and touch-screen concierge. Two swimming pools and direct access to the stunning Bang Tao Beach mean guests can swim and sunbathe when they wish.

And whether their goal is to gain inner nirvana or gear up for the next beach party, guests will be able to enjoy quick and soothing massages and facials, as well as nail and waxing treatments at Chill-Chill Spa.
