The billboards have been up for months announcing The Explorer Phuket and now finally after plenty of speculation plans for the development have been unveiled.

Two billion Baht will be invested in the development which occupies a prime fifty-seven Rai (91,200m2) site on the main road linking the town of Cherngtalay to the five star Laguna Resort.  The Explorer Phuket will include a shopping mall, conference centre, car and motorbike showroom as well as a four star resort and a range of residential lagoon-side pool villas.

The development is certainly in a prime location with a large catchment area of residents including locals and expats and also tourists from the nearby Laguna hotels.  Project manager, Apirak Kebsap, gave his reasons for selecting the site  "The Explorer Phuket may be a kilometre from the beachfront, but we don't think that matters too much in this prime location. We looked around the island and noted that the north did not have a decent shopping mall of the size and quality of Jungceylon in Patong or Central Festival near Phuket Town."

The developers hope that The Explorer will eventually be a popular destination stating, "It may even rival those two [Jungceylon and Central Festival] in scale eventually. Investment on Phuket is still very strong compared to other parts of Thailand."

The final plans for The Explorer Phuket and available pool villas are expected in February and Phuket Ocean Villas will bring you up to date with pricing as soon as it becomes available.
