Opened in August 2008, the Ao Po Grand Marina is ideally situated in a prime location at the entrance of the Phang Nga Bay in Phuket, Thailand. With 24 hour access, no tidal restrictions, deep water fuel dock and a first class Marina village coming soon this 200 berth marina can accomodate yachts upto 80m in length and is fast becoming a popular destination for yachting companies, enthusiasts and is going to host the 2009 Puravarna Phang Nga Bay Regatta.
The Ao Po Grand Marina and the soon to be established Ao Po Marina Village are part of a 150 rai (240,00 sq m) area development plan in the North East of Phuket. The construction of the Marina Village is due to start in October 2008 and includes the development of private villas, a 80 room, 5* boutique hotel, major facilities such as restaurants, bistros, retail outlets and offices for marine related businesses and a club house, not forgetting of course the creation of 2 man-made lagoons! It definately promises to be a good stop off on any yacht trip in Thailand.
