Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 19 May 2015 – Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is making its Bangkok debut, with the opening of a contemporary hotel in one of the Thai capital’s most prime locations, Sukhumvit Soi 15.
The five-star Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok represents the Swiss hospitality firm’s first city hotel in Thailand, but its fourth countrywide, with three upscale beach properties already in operation; one in Koh Samui and two in Phuket.
“Strategically positioned in Bangkok’s bustling business, leisure and entertainment district and just a few steps from Sukhumvit Road, Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok boasts an enviable location,” said Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and Asia.
“Bangkok remains one of South-East Asia’s main business hubs and to open a brand new hotel in one of the city’s most established areas, popular with visitors, residents and expats alike, is another important step for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts as we continue to expand our footprint across the region,” he added.
The Swiss hospitality firm operates Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok under a management agreement with the property’s owning company, Kijsompong Co., Ltd.
“Working in partnership with a world-class hotel management company like Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will enable us to make the most of this unique business opportunity in central Bangkok,” confirmed Charoen Kokar, Director, Kijsompong Co., Ltd.
Highlights of the 297-key Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok include a 20-metre rooftop pool and bar, 330 square metres of meeting space and a cosy courtyard featuring a unique two-storey waterfall.
“This provides a haven of tranquillity in a hotel that’s warm, inviting and welcoming to guests who are looking for an urban escape,” said Simon Rindlisbacher, General Manager of Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok.
The dining offering showcases Mövenpick’s renowned gastronomic expertise, with outlets serving a range of high-quality cuisine from Thai classics to European and international dishes. In addition, the Rainforest Rooftop Bar is a not-to-be-missed city experience where guests can enjoy cocktails and gourmet tapas, whilst taking in views of the magnificent Bangkok skyline.
Mövenpick’s Bangkok debut signals the firm’s on-going expansion commitments in Thailand, where the firm has signed and sealed deals for two further properties; one in Pattaya opening at the beginning of 2016 and another resort property planned for Hua Hin.
