Thailand: ONYX Hospitality Group has appointed Paul Halford as general manager of the OZO Phuket at Kata Beach.

Halford joins ONYX with close to 20 years of hospitality industry experience at hotels and resorts in Australia, Vanuatu, Fiji and Thailand, including a 10-year tenure across multiple Radisson Hotel Group locations. Most recently, he was general manager of Park Plaza Bangkok Soi 18.

In his new role, he will lead the pre-opening and positioning of the OZO in Phuket, scheduled to open in June 2019. The family-oriented resort will feature 255 rooms and suites located on Kata Road, surrounded by a wide range of restaurants, shops, a popular night market and vibrant nightlife scene.

The property boasts the closest location to the beach among non-beachfront hotels in the immediate area.

Halford said: "We are absolutely delighted to open OZO Phuket, welcoming the first guests to experience our all-new hotel. OZO is a new holiday destination in Phuket, which is Thailand's largest island and famously known as the 'Pearl of the Andaman'. The resort has a fantastic design of in-room functions with the best sleep quality OZO has to offer, in addition to the energising breakfast selection and à la carte all-day dining at EAT, with Asian and international favourites. Guests will also enjoy a relaxation space and stay connected at Chill or spend quality time with family at the free-form main pool and Splash activity pool. The hotel's location is amazing, with attractions and eateries for the whole family to enjoy, a relaxed vibe and the pristine white sands of Kata Beach just a short stroll away. We believe OZO Phuket will deliver quality service based on our core concept of 'sleep, connect and explore' for our guests."
