IHG takes Kimpton into Thailand with Bangkok signing

InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a management agreement with Siam Sindhorn to debut the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand in Bangkok.

The property will become the first Kimpton hotel in Thailand, and second across the south-east Asia and Korea region.

Opening in 2020, the new-built Kimpton Bangkok will feature 349 curated and artfully designed guest rooms, including 124 serviced residences, under an hour’s drive from Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Located in the heart of the Langsuan area and nestled right beside Lumpini Park, one of the largest public parks in the city, it will offer the best of both worlds - convenient access to the city’s prime districts including Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam and Chidlom, combined with the tranquillity and unobstructed greenery views of Lumpini Park.

Commenting on this landmark signing, Clarence Tan, managing director for south-east Asia and Korea, IHG, said: “In line with our plans to bring our Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand to highly sought-after destinations across the globe, we want to address the rising needs of travellers in the region for a sophisticated yet personalised lifestyle travel experience.”

Kimpton Bangkok will be part of Sindhorn Village, a 22-acre mega mixed-use development, with a rich selection of bespoke dining and retail options available at guests’ doorstep.

To explore other offerings and attractions around the city, guests can take the metro from the Chidlom BTS station conveniently located a short walk away.

Chalaluck Bunnag, managing director of Siam Sindhorn, said: “IHG is world-renowned for delivering true hospitality and the Kimpton brand is no exception - promising an unforgettable stay centred around its inspiring and vibrant design, distinct restaurant concepts, unique culinary know-how and sincere guest service.

“We are delighted to partner with IHG to bring this new and exciting boutique hotel concept to Thailand, and look forward to welcoming guests when we open our doors in 2020.”
