The Swiss hotel management company, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, has signed an agreement with leading real estate developer Nusasiri to manage three properties in Thailand.
The three properties will be Mövenpick Residences Ekkamai, Bangkok and Mövenpick Resort Khao Yai, both scheduled to open in Q4 2016, and Mövenpick Resort Mai Khao Phuket which will open in Q4 2017.
The announcement raises Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ total number of hotels and residences in Thailand to seven as the country’s thriving tourism sector continues to drive the global management firm’s portfolio in Asia.
Mövenpick Residences Ekkamai is the first property under the exclusive Mövenpick serviced apartment brand. It will consist of 160 residences – serviced apartments of one, two and three bedrooms – featuring an all-day dining restaurant, lobby lounge and rooftop lounge and bar. Other facilities include a meeting space, swimming pool and fitness centre.
Extensive modern resort facilities will be available to guests within a beautiful beachfront setting at Mövenpick Resort Mai Khao Phuket. The property will comprise some 220 rooms and feature a unique F&B proposition including an interactive all-day dining restaurant and an eclectic beach club. Meeting facilities, a kids club, three swimming pools, a fitness centre and signature spa complete the offering.
Stunning European heritage-inspired exterior design will add a rich sense of grandeur at Mövenpick Resort Khao Yai, featuring 114 rooms comprising hotel suites and two, three and four bedroom villas, with a core selection of facilities set within a landmark European-inspired clubhouse encompassing an all-day dining restaurant, lobby bar, café, meeting space, swimming pool, fitness centre and spa.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts currently has eight hotels in operation in Asia, four of which are in Thailand, its largest market in the region. The Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok and the 260-room Mövenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya are the latest additions to the group’s burgeoning portfolio in the region.
Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay will open this year, followed by Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali in early 2017. The Swiss-hotel management company is focused on accelerated regional growth, with the company vision to manage over 30 hotels in Asia by 2020.
