The First Tonino Lamborghini Boutique Hotel in Phuket to Welcome Guests in 2023
Tonino Lamborghini, the legendary Italian brand famous for its luxurious products and designs, partners up with Utopia Corporation, one of the largest real estate developers in Phuket, to bring the “Italian feeling” to the paradise island of Phuket in form of a completely one-of-a-kind luxury boutique hotel.
Scheduled to welcome guests in 2023, Tonino Lamborghini Boutique Hotel Phuket will be situated on the beachfront at secluded Chalong Bay, overlooking the azure Andaman Sea. This spectacular low-rise retreat will be curated by Alexander Wong, founder of Alexander Wong Architects, whose original avant-garde style has won multiple global awards.
For a dramatic first impression, guests will be welcomed into a world of international glitz with a Glamour Lobby that features slatted rosewood LED screens. With 39 suites and 7 villas, all of which are equipped with cutting-edge amenities and adorned with designer furnishings and abstract artworks, a beyond-expectation experience is what to expect here.
Alexander Wong, the hotel’s designer, considers Phuket to be the “Miami of Asia”, due to its international allure and cultural appeal. Reflecting the spirit of South Beach, Tonino Lamborghini Boutique Hotel Phuket will feature its signature Red Pool, which will embrace the best elements of a chic Floridian beach club. The Miami restaurant is a multi-sensory feast for diners, with a contemporary menu and a colourful ceiling inspired by the French post-impressionist painter, Henri Rousseau. Guests can also stay in shape at the state-of-the-art Power Gym.
“Our goal is to bring a branded Tonino Lamborghini experience to the best places worldwide, and soon we will bring the Tonino Lamborghini spirit to Phuket: one of the world’s finest tourist destinations. Tonino Lamborghini Boutique Hotel will be a luxury hotel with captivating architecture, bespoke interior design and top-quality services, with the ultimate purpose to satisfy the top-level requests of international clientele. Together with Utopia, we will strive to offer a new concept of hospitality. Our clientele will feel the values of our family’s DNA and heritage, Italian spirit, extreme attention-to-detail, and the energy that Tonino Lamborghini brand transmits. As my father always says; ‘If I cannot give you Italy, I will give you Its feeling!’”
