|Reception Sala, Evason Phuket|
Evason Phuket has been sold by The Soneva Group to an international and Thai hospitality and leisure group for an undisclosed amount. Effective immediately, Evason Phuket will cease operation and will no longer be operated by Six Senses Resorts and Spas.
The Soneva Group, operated by Sony Shivdasani, sold the property to a third party, a separate deal from the Pegasus acquisition of the Six Senses and Evason branded resort and spa management contracts. The Soneva Group will retain a majority stake in Six Senses Hua Hin, EvasonHua Hin, and Six Senses Laamu.
Sonu Shivdasani, founder and CEO of the Soneva Group, said: “Although it did not fit into The Soneva Group’s strategic plans, Evason Phuket is a wonderful property that will continue to thrive under new ownership. I would like to take this opportunity to give my personal thanks to all of the hosts at Evason Phuket for their commitment and hard work."
He added, “We are working hard to provide alternative employment to as many hosts as possible. In addition, we have agreed a package for any Evason Phuket hosts whom we can’t employ elsewhere."
