Mr. Prawit Janyasittikul, Chief Executive Officer of Phuket Square Co., Ltd., which manages Jungceylon, gleefully announced, “We are thrilled to usher in a new chapter for Jungceylon with the completion of our AEI. This full transformation encompasses revamped and re-configured spaces alongside innovative retail concepts. Since the start of this ambitious development and renovation plan in 2022, we’ve rejuvenated over 200,000 sqm with an investment exceeding 1 billion baht. The revitalized mall now proudly hosts more than 300 stores divided across four distinct zones, each meticulously designed with natural themes to evoke freshness and relaxation.”

With international tourists constituting over 80% of Jungceylon’s clientele, the mall has fine-tuned its marketing strategies to attract this crucial segment, particularly the burgeoning Free Independent Traveler (FIT) group. For the latter half of 2024, a robust marketing budget exceeding 60 million baht has been earmarked for exhilarating promotions and initiatives aimed at infusing even more vibrancy into the mall and offering enticing experiences for both Thai and international shoppers.

Coinciding with Jungceylon’s metamorphosis, the adjoining hotel, once known as Millennium Resort Patong Phuket, has undergone a complete makeover and has been rechristened as M Social Phuket. The chic hotel boasts advanced AI voice-controlled assistants in all 418 rooms and suites, enabling guests to control IoT-enabled lighting, air conditioning, and smart TVs with simple voice commands. M Social Phuket marks the debut of the M Social brand in Thailand and is the sixth such hotel globally.

Mr. Prawit further elaborated, “Given the mall’s proximity to the newly rebranded M Social Phuket, we anticipate heightened shopper traffic and robust tenant sales. Both developments synergistically reinvigorate the Patong Beach vicinity, infusing it with hues and dynamism that pulse through the area.”

The Jungle Zone

The Jungle Zone, a four-story marvel along Patong Road 2, adjacent to the main entrance of the shopping mall and connected to M Social Phuket, is adorned with the “Amid the Shady Trees” theme, exuding a tropical resort-like ambience with lush greenery and wildlife-themed architecture and design:

  • B Floor (Basement): Spanning over 7,500 sqm, this floor has:
    • Souvenir shops from Phuket and across Thailand offering intriguing merchandise;
    • Food Bazaar and Grab&Go, a food court dishing out a medley of delicious Thai and international cuisines at pocket-friendly prices;
    • The Thairapy zone, focusing on natural spa products, traditional Thai massage, health spas, and beauty services;
    • Street Fashion zone catering to fashion aficionados;
    • Banking zone providing essential financial services;

The latest crown jewel is a 2,000 sqm indoor electric go-kart racing track, “Power Drive Karts,” situated on the third floor—the first of its kind in Phuket.

The Botanica Zone

The Botanica Zone, a three-story structure adjacent to Patong Road 3 and M Social Phuket, is decked out with the “Color of Flower Blooming” theme, featuring vibrant floral sculptures and modern park-style gazebos.

The Bay Zone

The Bay Zone is a semi-outdoor multipurpose area in the heart of the mall with a “Sense of Sea Breeze” theme.

This oasis hosts promotional events and premier stores such as Shabushi, McDonald’s, Fuji Japanese Restaurant, Le Siam, KFC, Tim Hortons, and Superdry.

The Garden Zone

The Garden Zone, spanning over 4,700 sqm, connects the entrance from Patong Road 3 to The Bay Zone. It’s an epicenter of international restaurants, lifestyle cafés, and chic hangout spots with an “A Green Mythical Romance” concept, enhanced by Phuket’s Sino-Portuguese shophouses in a modern classic style. Offering a spacious and relaxing atmosphere akin to a beautiful garden, this zone includes notable eateries like Hachiban Ramen, The Thai Food Factory, Zen, Urban Food, Spoon, Wine Connection, Spice House, Wabi Sabi, Churrasco, Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Roxane Café, Yayoi, Irish Time Pub, Greyhound Café, Whynot, Café 101, Pizza Hut, Lacasa, Lavanille, and Pimnara Boutique Hotel.

    Wow, Jungceylon sounds like it’s going to be incredible! The investment and innovation are off the charts.

    • Brian24 June 25, 2024

      It’s a lot of money for a renovation. Will it actually attract more tourists?

      • Tina R. June 25, 2024

        Good point, Brian. I think the AI assistants in the hotel might be a big draw, though.

      • Sam Garrett Jr. June 25, 2024

        Tourists love new and shiny things. A billion baht is huge but could really pay off!

  2. Melody V. June 25, 2024

    A sound and light show with a concert sounds amazing! I wish I could attend the opening celebrations.

    • Kyle June 25, 2024

      Honestly, most malls and events oversell the experience. Let’s see if it’s actually any good.

  3. Sarah H. June 25, 2024

    I wonder if the focus on luxury and international brands is excluding local culture and vendors?

    • Paulicinia June 25, 2024

      There are souvenir shops and a ‘Thairapy’ zone, but your point is valid.

    • Jason R. June 25, 2024

      If it brings in money, does it really matter who it’s for? Economic growth is important for Phuket.

    • Sarah H. June 25, 2024

      Long-term sustainability is important too, not just economic growth.

  4. TommyBoy June 25, 2024

    M Social Phuket sounds like a gimmick with all that AI nonsense. Just use a light switch!

    • Emily R. June 25, 2024

      Tech is the future, TommyBoy. Get with the program. Simplicity is overrated.

    • TommyBoy June 25, 2024

      When AI crashes, simplicity will save the day. Mark my words!

  5. Joe Smith June 25, 2024

    Love the idea of an indoor electric go-kart track. What a unique addition!

    • Lisa June 25, 2024

      It could be a total game-changer for indoor entertainment. Will really stand out!

    • Joe Smith June 25, 2024

      Exactly, Lisa! Hope they maintain it well and it’s not just a one-time novelty.

  6. Natalie H. June 25, 2024

    This is such a huge project! I hope the local economy sees good returns on this investment.

    • Riley B. June 25, 2024

      Has to! There’s too much riding on this for it not to benefit locals.

  7. Mark.te June 25, 2024

    They better keep those promotions coming if they want to keep attracting crowds. Discounts alone won’t cut it.

    • Lauren_C June 25, 2024

      Agreed. Events and entertainment create lasting memories and repeat visits.

    • Mark.te June 25, 2024

      Exactly, Lauren. Just hope they keep things fresh and not monotonous.

  8. Alan Robertson June 25, 2024

    Wonder if the AI in the hotel will understand multiple languages well? Tourists come from everywhere!

    • Jessica P. June 25, 2024

      That’s a good question. Voice recognition tech is not always reliable.

  9. Michael K. June 25, 2024

    Patong Beach needs this type of investment. It has massive potential but needs modernization.

    • Ravi Patel June 25, 2024

      Modernization can be good but it shouldn’t erase the charm that initially drew tourists.

    • Michael K. June 25, 2024

      True, Ravi. Balance is key; mix of new without losing old charm.

  10. Tanya Y. June 25, 2024

    300 stores across four zones!? That’s a bit overwhelming. Would need a full day to explore.

  11. Brandon June 25, 2024

    Phuket needed a facelift for its malls. Glad to see someone stepping up.

  12. Laura Beltran June 25, 2024

    Sounds like a megaproject. Hope it doesn’t lead to over-commercialization of Patong Beach.

  13. Rob June 25, 2024

    And another chunk of city turned into a shiny mall. How original. Not!

    • Anais L. June 25, 2024

      Cynical much? This is good for the economy, whether you like it or not.

    • Rob June 25, 2024

      I get the economic part, but I just wish there was more focus on organic growth, not just commerce.

  14. Devin W. June 25, 2024

    Putting this much money into a mall sounds risky. What if it doesn’t pay off?

    • Hannah M. June 25, 2024

      Businesses risk a lot for potential gain. That’s part of any big investment.
