Developers of Jumeirah Private Island Phuket, TGR Group Asia, have signed an agreemeent with ASA Group to provide aviation and VIP security services to the island.

ASA will provide private charter flights, VIP travel and security services for visitors and residents of the island.  Simon Wagstaff, ASA's chief executive, said it was a privilege to be part of the exclusive project. ''Our extensive experience taking care of VIPs means that we can offer visitors the service they will naturally expect.”

Jumeirah Private Island is located just 600 metres off the north east coast of Phuket and can be reached by helicopter or by a four minute boat ride.  In 2007 TGR appointed the Dubai based Jumeirah Group to manage the resort which is due to open in 2011.

The resort occupies 56,000m2 of land and has spectacular views of Phang Nga Bay and the Phuket coast line. Accomodation will be provided in seventy-two pool villas each featuring a private swimming pool and Jacuzzi.  Guests will also have use of the excellent facilities available including a luxurious spa and fitness centre, a large free-form swimming pool as well as four restuarants and bars. In addition, the resort will offer a tennis court, several boutiques, a business centre and a library with a dedicated reading room. A 400m private beach is located on the south side of the island for the exclusive use of hotel guests and residents.

The island will feature one pf Phuket's most spectacular marinas set amongst mangroves and able to cater for yachts up to ninety metres in length.  A exclusive yacht club will form part of the island's facilities and owners on the island will be provided with a private berth.

Sixteen private villa estates and thirty-eight private villa residences are available for purchase on the island, each with a contemporary tropical design and dramatic ocean views.

Dilokpol Sundaravej, TGR's development managing director, said he was looking forward to working with a company that provided VIP services with an emphasis on privacy and security. ''We feel our clients will appreciate this additional service available to them.”

In May, Airports of Thailand (AOT) gave the go ahead for ASA to develop Thailand's first world-class FBO (fixed base operator), which will offer aircraft operators, passengers and aircrew a range of professional services for business and private flights, including tailored solutions for high-end, diplomatic and large aircraft operations.  ASA will also provide several other VIP services, including security, aircraft charter, concierge services, over-flight and landing clearances, customs and immigration.
