The Soft Opening of Peace Blue Naiharn in Phuket took place in the weekend of 19 - 20 October and was an overwhelming success with all available accommodation fully booked from Friday and until Monday. Even when some of the guests from Friday evening moved out, they were quickly replaced by new guests.
A couple of guests at the Soft Opening had come a day before to stay at the Lemontree resort one last time before Friday moving over to Peace Blue, which was only partly finished when they arrived. The artificial grass was rolled out and fitted to the pool area while they were waiting.
"We are 80 percent done," the owners, Patty and Golf, said in their welcome speech where they introduced themselves and their staff. But the last 20 percent will no doubt rather be 30 percent, before everything is done. There are still 10 rooms on the second and third floor that needs to be fitted and there will be an abundance of small things that only surface when the guests start using the resort.
But so far, the resort will close again until it will open for good on the 23rd of November 2018. This is the final deadline when Patty and Golf definitively will return the old Lemon Tree resort to its owner and move all their guests over to Peace Blue Naiharn.
One important building that was not yet ready, was the Pool Bar. This facility is centrally located in middle of the spacious yard between the villas to the South and the wing with the rooms to the North, just a few meters from the Swimming Pool. This Pool Bar will clearly become a very popular and lively social meeting place for all the guests when it opens up.
Below, enjoy a few of the many photos taken on the second day of the Soft Opening. Take them as an appetizer and then see you again after 23rd November.
