With a history of nearly 60 years, Thai Airways is a trusted airline amongst frequent flyers. Authentic Thai culture paired with impeccable service has been a hallmark of the brand. A key destination for the airline is Phuket, famous with tourists as an evergreen Asia holiday destination.
Phuket is a historic city with old houses bearing the Sino-Portuguese architectural style, merging designs with Eastern and Western influences. Also known as the Andaman pearl, the city is globally renowned for amazing beaches and crystal-clear waters, alongside a concentration of high-end resorts.
The Royal Orchid Lounge combines local and Sino-Portuguese appeal with the essence of the Thai Airways’ signature orchid purple, pampering passengers with premium services. The check-in area and the food kiosk mimics Phuket’s familiar street food lifestyle.
The interiors are abundant with carefully selected furniture that resonates with Phuket local craftwork. The VIP section design caters to the traveling epicurean, furnished with Sino-Portuguese motifs with a hint of Chinese patterns, representing their connected history together.
All appliances within are energy-saving and environmentally friendly. Aiming to please the most demanding of customers, the design of Thai Airways’ lounge hopes to impart the Phuket sensorial experience through premium customer service within a suite of facilities.
