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


The Wetherby Arts School at Olympia

The Wetherby Arts BRIT School Olympia

More exciting news for London’s cultural landmark – Olympia.

Launching in 2025, The Alpha Plus Group will be opening The Wetherby Arts School at Olympia – a 60,000 sq ft new performing arts and educational senior school. The school will also provide various educational, creative and cultural opportunities for the local community as part of a unique partnership with the BRIT School.

John Hitchcox, Chairman of Yoo Capital said: “Our aim is to build a hub of creativity that encompasses all the arts at Olympia and that’s why we’re so excited to announce this agreement with the Alpha Plus Group. Not only will this bring a world class school to Olympia, but Wetherby’s partnership with the BRIT School will also provide local children with a crucial introduction to the creative industries, inspiring the next Adele, Jesse Jay or Tom Holland. We’re committed to making Olympia a place where arts and culture thrive and by bringing together these leading arts institutions – as well as announcing London’s first major theatre outside of the West End since the 1970s – Yoo Capital is doing just that.”




Lloyd Lee, Managing Partner at Yoo Capital said: “Our vision for Olympia has always been to create a world class cultural hub in West London, and that begins with investing in local, grass roots talent. Three years ago, we made a firm commitment to this ideal of building from ground up a unique public private partnership with Alpha Plus and BRIT to create this school for the arts. With the Council’s welcome support in sharing this vision, we believe this has potential to become a new model for how our firm can continue to invest into London communities in ways that are both socially responsible and fiscally responsible.”

The £1.3bn redevelopment of Olympia – which will be completed in 2025 – includes a 4,400 capacity live music venue manged by AEG Presents; a 1,575-seat performing arts theatre for Trafalgar Entertainment; 100,000 sq ft of restaurants, bars and eateries; two globally renowned hotels – a Hyatt Regency and citizenM; 550,000 sq ft of offices and 2.5 acres of new public realm.
