Contracts have been exchanged for the purchase of the Moevenpick Resort Karon Beach Phuket by Kingdom Hotel Investments and an affiliate of Malaysian Group TA Global Berhad.
According to a notice to the Stock Exchange the purchase price for the 338 key property is USD90,208,000 or approximately USD267,000 per key.
