Travelodge has signed its third hotel in Thailand and its first in Phuket.

The Travelodge Phuket Town, scheduled to open in 2020, will feature 159 rooms, an all-day dining restaurant, a gymnasium and a large swimming pool.

The hotel will be located in Phuket Town, just a few steps away from Central Festival Phuket, with convenient access to shopping centres, attractions and entertainment in the area.

“Following the debut of the Travelodge brand in Thailand in mid-2017, Travelodge Phuket Town represents our continued commitment to expanding the brand’s footprint throughout Thailand,” said CEO of Travelodge Thailand Jonathan Wigley. “We are confident that Travelodge Phuket Town will offer guests a value stay with the brand’s exceptional hospitality, fuss-free quality and trendy living ethos that is consistently provided across all Travelodge properties.”

Stephen Burt, chairman of Travelodge Asia, added: “Phuket is one of the most popular and quality beach destinations in Asia and we are very pleased that Travelodge is making a footprint in such a popular destination. We are excited about the expansion opportunities for Travelodge in Thailand. The Travelodge Pattaya and Travelodge Sukhumvit Bangkok marked our initial entry into the country last year, and with the successful kick off with both properties, we have since witnessed an impressive pipeline of new opportunities which is testimony to the strength of our brand here.”
