The new JW Grand Ballroom is bright, stylish and naturally lit, with 758 square metres of floor space. “We are delighted to unveil the new JW Grand Ballroom”.
JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, the pioneering retreat on Thailand’s stunning sunset coast, has unveiled its new world-class event space, The JW Grand Ballroom, as the hotel opens up another exciting new frontier in Thailand’s meeting and conference sector.
Following the successful conclusion of our 18-month renovation, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa now offers an expanded inventory of 420 rooms, suites and villas, 11 restaurants and bars, world-class leisure facilities including Southeast Asia’s longest swimming pool, signature experiences and world-class meeting venues, all set along the golden shores of the Andaman Sea.
With one of the largest luxury MICE venues in southern Thailand, creative catering services and unique guest experiences, from nourishing culinary workshops and tasting sessions in the JW Garden to coffee breaks themed like a Thai floating market, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa is helping to reposition Khao Lak – and the entire Andaman coast – as a dynamic new MICE destination.
JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa now features over 9,300 square metres of indoor and outdoor event meeting space, including seven function rooms, ranging from the compact 12-guest Griffin Boardroom to the expansive 810-delegate JW Grand Ballroom.
The launch of this 810-guest, 758-square metre event space, which marks the culmination of the resort’s 18-month transformation, sets the stage for gala dinners, major conferences, destination weddings and more.
Now, with the opening of this exceptional new event space, we will be able to offer fresh and innovative experiences for large-scale corporate groups, opening up a new frontier for Thailand’s thriving MICE sector,” said Abhimanyu Singh, General Manager of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa. Chic, stylish and naturally lit, this 758-square-metre venue can host up to 810 attendees for gala dinners, award ceremonies, corporate conventions, one-of-a-kind weddings and more.
This makes it a compelling option for every type of escape, from families’ and couples’ vacations to destination weddings, business incentives, team-building escapes, corporate conferences and more,” he added. These indoor venues are only the start; creative set-ups and personalised activities can also be arranged in the resort’s elegant outdoor spaces, including the lush Infinity Lawn and the soft, sandy beach.
The brand-new ballroom was part of a significant expansion and complete renovation of this five-star beachfront resort. With its long, palm-fringed sandy beaches and crystal-clear seas, Khao Lak has established a strong reputation as a destination for leisure vacations and beachfront weddings. As the sun sets over the Andaman Sea, these natural amphitheatres create idyllic options for outdoor events, from cocktail receptions to beachfront dinners, while providing a beautiful backdrop for filming and photo shoots.
JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa is located one hour’s drive north of Phuket International Airport, an emerging aviation hub with direct flights from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and the Middle East. It can be flexibly divided into three separate spaces for more intimate events, and the inviting pre-function area can also host exhibitions.
The property features a unique 2.4 km long lagoon pool waterway. It is fully equipped with the latest audio-visual technology.
