“The resort will offer direct beachfront access to guests while providing the exciting variety of sporting activities which have proved so successful in upholding the Club Med concept down the years,” said the report.

While Krabi is anticipated to play an increasingly significant role in Thailand’s tourism sector in the coming years, it is also expected that the collaboration between Apex Development and Club Med will lead to a mutually rewarding partnership combining the reputation of Club Med as a global leader in all-inclusive resorts with the long experience of Apex in developing resorts and residences, reported HotelIntel.co

Thai property developer Apex Development, listed in the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) with a registered capital of B1.49bn, has also become a key player in the Thai ​commercial property development market, including playing key roles in the development of the Mövenpick Resort & Residences in Jomtien, Pattaya, and the Sheraton Phuket Grand Bay Resort and Grand Bay Residences at Ao Po, on Phuket’s east coast.
