Kardashian clan were ‘great guests’ at luxury Iniala resort, north of Phuket

A spokesperson for the lush Iniala resort confirmed the celebrity Kardashian-Jenner family booked the entire three villa resort, plus the penthouse, for six days, before flying home yesterday (April 2).

Each villa booking comes with the “Iniala Entourage”; a team of staff that includes a driver, butler, chef, spa therapist and housekeeper. The 45 or so film crew were staying nearby.

In Thailand to film episodes of their reality show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’, Kim Kardashian and her nine other family members filmed two episodes at the resort, plus in other nearby locations.

The spokesperson said the famous family did ziplining in Phuket, watched a Muay Thai fight, went to Phi Phi island and also visited temples.

They also visited the Home Life orphanage in nearby Thai Muang, and brought presents to the children living there.

The orphanage is one of the projects supported by Inspirasia, a charitable foundation set up by Iniala founder Mark Weingard.

Iniala opened in December, and the Kardashians were the resort’s first big name celebrity guests, the spokesperson said.

“They were perfect. We had no problems at all from them. They were very polite, and were great guests, and got on very well with the staff.

“They loved it [Iniala]. I was speaking to the crew last night, who are still here, and they said they [the Kardashians] have visited some pretty amazing places, but have never experienced anything like Iniala. They were absolutely blown away.

“It’s great to have someone of their status staying.”

This morning, Kim Kardashian posted a photo of the limestone karsts in Phang Nga on her Instagram account, with a message saying “Thank you for the beautiful memories Thailand”.
