The Forest by Yoo, Phuket

We are delighted to announce we have signed an agreement with leading Thai developer – World Corporation, to bring both our hospitality brands, the luxury By YOO Residences and upper upscale YOO2 Hotel, to Phuket, Thailand.




The Forest by YOO, will be a design-led lifestyle hotel and residences located amongst tropical forest at the southern end of Patong Beach. Set to open in 2026, designed by London based YOO Design Studio, the development will be a showcase of YOO Studios award-winning design and will be designed to limit impact on the existing forest and seek to enhance with the addition of tropical gardens. Spread over two separate zones, both properties will deliver on the YOO ethos of enriching lives through exceptional lifestyle experiences and extraordinary living spaces.

The 131 By YOO villa residences will be luxurious, fully serviced private escapes designed to allow guests and owners to make the most of spending time with family and friends. The YOO Clubhouse with restaurant, bar, pool deck, gym and wellness facilities will also draw guests in will be designed with fun and relaxation in mind.

The YOO2 hotel is set to be a vibrant destination with expansive amenities and facilities including a spa and wellness centre, offering both beauty, relaxation and longevity treatments, a state-of-the-art gym and kids club designed to allow all guests to re-connect and leave re-energised and invigorated. A daily fitness and wellness program with guided beach or mountain runs and sunrise yoga will be available to provide the balance the modern-day traveller seeks. At YOO2 hotels, food and drink take centre stage, with multiple must visit innovative dining and drinking concepts created for not only hotel guests but all visitors to Phuket, providing guests with international classics, local specialties and experience-led options.

Delivering on the YOO ethos of connecting travellers with each other and with the local soul of a destination, a series of curated “explore, taste and experience” masterclasses, in local cooking, cocktails and craft, will feature alongside food and arts tours to allow guests to connect with the people and culture of the destination. As with all YOO Hotels, YOO Design Studio will work with local designers, artisans and artists during the design process to draw inspiration and create an end product that is sophisticated and luxurious yet bold, eclectic and relaxed
