The hotel - which is the first Selina to be fully operational in Southeast Asia - expands the brand's global footprint, which consists of a portfolio of 155 open and secured properties.
The hotel offers guests direct beach access and features stunning views of the Andaman Sea. Rawai Beach is known for its long-tailed boats, the Sea Gypsies Fish Market, beach volleyball and seafood restaurants.
The hotel, which is a collection of uniquely designed buildings, creates a collaborative beachfront compound that brings guests, expats and Thailand's growing entrepreneurial community together. Surrounded by beautiful art installations, places to relax, read, and practice wellness, Selina Phuket is a destination for self-discovery, togetherness and soaking in the beauty of the scenery around you.
The hotel features an expansive 24-hour waterfront coworking facility with a private pool, a stunning rooftop yoga and wellness center that overlooks sea, an onsite beach club, and HOWM Beach Bar and Kitchen a cafe restaurant with rooftop seating and panoramic water views that serves a Latin Thai fusion concept as well as an all-day classic brunch menu with a focus on healthy quality produce and quality barista coffee.
Selina Phuket boasts 52 rooms of mixed accommodations, including ocean view suites, one and two bedroom apartments, private cabanas with outdoor seating, standard rooms, and shared-style accommodation.
Each space allows guests to personalize their stay based on privacy preference, comfort, and budget – a unique lodging experience the average hotel does not offer.
The property also includes a beachfront pool deck, a cinema room, a common kitchen and a wide variety of programming and wellness activities such as beachside yoga, new and full moon gatherings, healing modalities, and detox packages.
Introductory room rates vary depending on seasonality, but Cabanas (which sleep two guests) start from $51 USD per night. Selina also will offer community accommodation that will be ready later in 2022 and will begin at $25 per night for a bed in one of the shared-style rooms. ■
