    Hilton Worldwide today opened its first DoubleTree by Hilton property in Phuket, Thailand. The 250-room DoubleTree Resort by Hilton – Surin Beach is located on the west coast of the island on Surin Beach.

    Formerly the Courtyard by Marriott, the rebranded, four-story DoubleTree Resort by Hilton, Phuket – Surin Beach is located between Phuket International Airport and Patong, the island’s tourist center. The resort offers over 80 suites and has three food and beverage outlets which include Asia Alive, an all-day dining restaurant, The Boardwalk, a pool bar serving snacks and a food and beverage retail outlet, The Food Store. There will also be four meeting rooms as well as a business center, fitness club, outdoor lagoon-style pools, water slides and a kids club.

    The DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Phuket – Surin Beach will offer the warm welcome of the brand’s signature chocolate chip cookie presented to every guest at check-in; an array of upscale amenities and guest services and the rewards of the Hilton HHonors guest loyalty program.

    It's impressive to see how much Hilton has been expanding the past few months especially with their DoubleTree and Conrad brands!

    Impressive indeed. This one is now a DoubleTree by Hilton in Phuket, which was a former Courtyard by Marriott.
    Marriott had another Courtyard by Marriott in Phuket which is now a Swissotel.

    It's indeed interesting how fast Hilton grows the DoubleTree and Conrad portfolio of their brands, but then, Hilton is owned by Blackstone, one of the wealthiest private equity companies in the world today.

    It had already changed to Doubletree when I was there in August, as mentioned in the FLounge. :)

    For a stay in April, would people recommend the DoubleTree or the Hilton? It appears that the DT is more expensive and lacks a lounge. I enjoy swimming in the ocean, so if one property is better for that (they are at different beaches) that would make a difference.
