Meliá Phuket Karon will be the group’s sixth property in Thailand. Scheduled to open in 2021, Meliá Phuket Karon will be located on 40 rai of “untouched tropical woodland, more than half of which has been set aside for an Adventure Eco Park created to simultaneously promote and preserve the natural beauty and ecology of Karon”, noted a release announcing the new resort this week.
