Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts has recently just signed an agreement for a rebranded modern 5 star hotel in Sukhumvit with Bangkok Dusit Medical Services, which will see the Nai Lert Park Hotel in Downtown Bangkok transformed into a new property.
The Nai Lert Park hotel originally opened in Bangkok’s Central Business District back in 1984, and will be re-opening under management by Mövenpick come early 2019 once renovations are done. The property is located at the heart of the capital’s CBD, near several malls, embassies, corporate offices, as well as the two transport hubs; the Ploenchit BTS Skytrain and Phetchabury MRT Metro stations.
The property will be rebranded as the Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok, a 294-room modern 5 star hotel in Sukhumvit that’ll be the firm’s third property in Bangkok, to operate alongside Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok and Mövenpick Residence Ekkamai Bangkok, and will be expanding the firm’s Thailand portfolio to nine hotels, spread across the Kingdom, in Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Khao Yai, Pattaya and Phuket.
The Mövenpick Asara Resort & Spa Hua Hin was the company’s most recent opening in Thailand, a 96-room oceanfront resort which opened early in August on the Gulf of Thailand. The property was also rebranded, operating from the refurnished Asara Villa & Suite Hua Hin, which the hospitality firm acquired in a business transaction earlier.
This resorted is located at the heart of Hua Hin, and is a two-hour drive away from the capital. All of these new developments are part of Mövenpick’s plans to be have 125 properties in operation by the year 2020.
To that end, the hospitality firm has 11 openings lined up for 2018, spread across 11 countries, which include a new modern 5 star hotel Sukhumvit and the Mövenpick in Hua Hin. The other developments are as follows:
- Thailand: Mövenpick Resort Khao Yai;
