Jungceylon – one of Phuket’s largest malls – will unveil a brand new look and exciting retail concepts from end 2022
After 15 years in operation, Jungceylon will be embarking on a revamp. Conceptualised as the Oasis of Patong, the shopping mall will reaffirm its position as Phuket’s shopping paradise with a range of exciting new lifestyle attractions to welcome the return of tourists from around the globe.
Jungceylon, one of Phuket’s largest malls in the vibrant Patong neighbourhood, is preparing to undergo major renovation works from 2022 to 2023, transforming the mall into the Oasis of Patong. The first phase of the work is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2022. Through the revamp, Jungceylon will be a one-stop shopping paradise encompassing fresh and immersive concepts that will enhance the shopping experience in this lively and convenient locale.
Mr. Prawit added that the makeover of Jungceylon marks a significant asset enhancement initiative (AEI) since the mall opened in 2006. Describing the new concept, he said, “With the revamp, we will transform Jungceylon into a shopping oasis in Patong. In line with our vision of introducing a new shopping experience in the heart of Patong, the mall’s interiors will be embraced by lush greenery, and shoppers will enjoy a relaxed, comfortable and fresh environment. Beautiful gardens and big fountains inside the shopping centre will harmoniously combine naturalness with architecture in the perfect form of a ‘Tropical Resort Mall’. The nature theme will cover four zones: The Jungle, The Bay, The Botanica, and The Garden, which will house new stores and services, including a cluster of fashion shops, family restaurants and spots for hangouts.”
New attractions will also be added to enliven the spaces. These include:
LOVE EAT: This new restaurant zone is decorated in the style of a courthouse, blending nature and culture perfectly. Spanning an area of over 3,000 square metres, it will introduce a unique “Digital Delicious” experience, where the real and the virtual worlds meet – a first in Thailand under the EAT & PLAY concept. Serving innovative digital dining experiences that combine the science of fine dining cooking with the art of technology beyond imagination and the technique of blending information from the real world and the virtual world, this Sensory Experience will showcase internationally recognised works across all dimensions.
- Digital Amusement: Spread across more than 2,000 square metres of space, this interactive digital show is the first in Thailand. It will convey experiences through mixed reality and virtual world technology. Visitors can experience the fun and excitement in digital art through different concepts in each exhibition area. For instance, at the Culture Zone, Thailand’s traditions, arts and culture will be showcased in a unique digital light show. There will also be zones for Art, Fashion, Adventure, Games, and more.
- Tourist Service Centre: A new one-stop service centre for tourists, offering information and other services such as the booking of taxi services, airport shuttle bus, air ticket reservations, advance airline check-in, currency exchange services, mobile phone and internet SIM sales points, luggage storage services, and others.
With its plethora of offerings, the company expects Jungceylon to be a must-visit shopping destination for both locals and tourists in the heart of Phuket,
