Completely Vertically Integrated
We are the only vertically integrated hospitality company with strong capabilities to tackle and anticipate the challenges of master planning and developing an integrated resort. We are able to take a property from inception to delivery with efficiencies that is entirely brand specific. Our in-house design team, Architrave, and project services team are extremely involved in all phases of the development – master planning, designing, developing and coordinating, to ensure developers a timely delivery of their asset.
In Phuket, our team successfully converted what was once an abandoned tin mine into today’s largest integrated resort in Asia. Laguna Phuket now houses six hotels, branded residences, a golf course, club and other amenities.
Our strong pipeline of integrated developments includes Laguna Langco, Vietnam where we faced the challenges in developing the infrastructure for a 280 hectare project. Through our established team, we effectively master planned and developed roads, water supply and sewage that would be able to house up to 6 resorts. At present, a Banyan Tree resort and Angsana resort are under construction and will be launching in the next two years.
We are also employing our capabilities all across China, where large tracts of land are being developed into gated residences and luxury hotels offered to the Chinese elite.
Maximizing Centralized Services
Being experienced developers, we are able to ensure that efficiencies and economies of scale are maximized along with guest experiences. We have employed this model effectively in Bintan, the Maldives and Phuket where the Angsana resort is positioned next to a Banyan Tree resort with shared back of house facilities. This model has allowed us to lower costs without cannibalizing rates, thereby boosting returns for our developers.
