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 quarter four 2016, and Mövenpick Resort Mai Khao Phuket which will open in quarter four 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.
“We are thrilled today to sign an agreement with such a distinguished developer and to increase our properties under Mövenpick management in Thailand,” said Andrew Langdon, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts senior vice president Asia.
“This is our second property in Bangkok and the debut of our exclusive serviced apartment brand, Mövenpick Residences.
“It’s our third resort in Phuket, while in Khao Yai we are delighted to be opening up the first truly internationally managed resort in this well-known domestic destination.
“We are very much looking forward to bringing our upscale brand and Swiss-inspired hospitality standards to all these destinations.”
Mövenpick Residences Ekkamai 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.
Mövenpick Resort Khao Yai will feature 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.
