However, it has lacked a full-service boutique product from with an exciting international brand which will attract discerning hotel guests looking for a vibrant and innovative getaway'' he added.

Chuan Spa will be introduced to Phuket for the first time bringing a signature range of pampering spa treatments based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
