โ€œHaving travelled to Phuket and Phang Nga numerous times over the years I am aware of the many fantastic golfing facilities there and the reputation the region has as a golfing destination, with this in mind I am thrilled at the opportunity to introduce Aquella to the market, from early discussion with the team at Absolute Golf Services.

Iโ€™m sure the addition of this wonderful property will only serve to enhance Phuketโ€™s and Phang Ngaโ€™s reputation within the golfing industry as a must visit destination.

I look forward to getting on the ground and joining the Absolute Golf Services team to work with them to establish Aquella amongst the best In Thailand and indeed Asia!โ€

The elegant clubhouse, home to The Approach restaurant will wow dinners with its Thai fusion and international cuisine, along with many more great leisure facilities within the building. Having the highly experienced GM like Simon will ensure the team exceed all expectations in guest experience, whilst delivering AGSโ€™s renowned operational performance excellence. We are delighted how this project has developed and are excited to welcome the first guests to the Aquella Golf and Country Club.โ€
