Phuket, Thailand (PRWEB) April 10, 2007
Central & City Developments has announced this week that it will build Phuket's first Water Park at its prestigious West Sands Resort, located at Mai Khao Beach on the North West coast. West Sands is the first in a series of Lifestyle Resorts by Central & City Developments, whose major shareholders are Sir Terry Leahy CEO of Tesco Plc supermarkets and Mr Paul Mercer.
Mr. Mercer was asked why he thought that the resort needed such a feature and was happy to explain, "There are many studies and case examples to prove that developments with unique features such as a Water Park have greater occupancy levels, this is very important to potential investors as it gives a better return on their investment. Of course it will also give families staying at the resort a better holiday experience as well." He went on to add, "Investors need to think seriously about the rental market after any guaranteed rental program offered by the developers has finished and what special features will give better occupancy."
The Water Park will take up 6400 sq.m (4 Rai) and cost around 150 million Thai Baht (US$4 million), it will have state of the art water rides, a children's play area plus many more features. Central & City Developments have paid particular attention to making sure the design of the Water Park adds to the design of the resort as a whole and becomes a positive feature. Following the example of some of the many 5 Star hotels that have managed to provide this style of feature and still offer luxury resort lifestyle and service such as the Jemeirah Hotel in Dubai, they are sure they can pull it off.
