All-girl pop sensation find


Phuket’s glamorous 5-star resort Indigo Pearl was recently the chosen location for the filming a photo-book and DVD video by South Korean pop idols Girls’ Generation.
 
The nine girls Sunny, Hyo Yeon, Yae Yeon, Jessica, Soo Young, Seo Hyun, Tiffany, Yoon A and Yuri checked in at the luxury resort for eight days shooting All about Girls’ Generation ‘Paradise in Phuket’.
 
Their new photo book features 300 pages of previously unseen images including everything from their arrival at the airport to pyjama parties at the resort, an elegant evening in the prestigious Bensley Suite, the recording of their latest music video Echo, and much more.
 
Released on 8th February, the photo-travelogue has become an overnight best-seller and is part of a six-DVD collector’s boxset All About Girls’ Generation.
 
The girls were attracted to Phuket and in particular Indigo Pearl for its “green energy, not easy to encounter in the city amidst a busy schedule”.
 
The resort is styled and designed by internationally renowned Bill Bensley inspired by the island’s tin mining history, incorporating art pieces and industrial relics into the interiors and landscaping.  It is committed to sustainability and works closely with local charities and conservation groups to help protect the natural environment.
 
Set against a backdrop of dense forest filled with rare wildlife, Indigo Pearl is located only 10 minutes from Phuket International Airport; touching Nai Yang Beach on Phuket’s northwest shore; and is adjacent to Sirinath National Park.  The resort offers 260 stylish rooms, villas, private pool and garden pavilions and suites scattered in an enclave of lagoons, pools and lush greenery.
 
It is a popular choice for celebrities and socilates and has welcomed amongst others: Verne Troyer; an American stand-up comedian, actor, stuntman and performer, best known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers series; Martin Solveig; a French electronic music DJ and producer from Paris; Hirano Aya; a famous voice over for Japanese cartoons, actress and singer; Bob Geldof an Irish singer, songwriter, author, occasional actor and political activist and Pernilla Wahlgren; Swedish singer, actress and presenter.
 
Most recently Indigo Pearl launched a luxurious new room category, the D-DUK spa and family suite, and a cutting edge spa, Coqoon Spa, most notable for its treetop treatment room accessible by ‘flying bridge’.
 
Indigo Pearl has been voted one of the best new hotels in the world by Condé Nast Traveler and ranked among the world's “TOP 50 Dream Resorts” by Honeymoon and Travel magazine.
 
For design, it also collected ‘Best Design Concept Hotel/Resort in South East Asia’’ at the HAPA (Hospitality Asia) Awards 2008–2010, and was honoured as ‘Asia’s Leading Design Hotel’ at the World Travel Awards 2010.
