Ascott Opens Somerset on Thonglor

Ascott has opened its eighth property in Bangkok, Thailand. The 262-unit Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor is one of the largest serviced residences in Bangkok’s prime Thonglor (Sukhumvit Soi 55) district which is well known amongst expatriates and travellers for the convenience and vibrant international lifestyle it offers.

With Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor’s location, business and leisure travellers can enjoy a variety of dining, retail and entertainment options. These include some of Bangkok’s most notable restaurants, upmarket malls such as J Avenue and H1, the major Cineplex Eakamai, as well as trendy nightspots which are located across the entire Thonglor district.

Long-stay travellers with children will welcome the added advantage of being close to established international schools such as the American School of Bangkok and Singapore International School of Bangkok.

Furthermore, Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor has excellent transport links. Its proximity to the Thonglor Skytrain Station provides travellers easy access to the main financial and business districts in the Sukhumvit-Thonglor area, as well as various attractions and landmarks in the city.

Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor offers a range of apartment types from studios to one and two-bedroom units. The stylish apartments come with contemporary décor, modern fittings, a fully-equipped kitchen, home entertainment system and wireless internet access.


Travellers can enjoy a leisurely swim in the property’s pool, work out in the gymnasium, relax at the jacuzzi or discover Bangkok through residents’ programmes. The serviced residence also offers a pool and indoor playroom for children. In addition, executives will find the extensive business facilities and support indispensable.

Mr Alfred Ong, Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Australia, said, “Ascott has built a strong presence in Thailand over the last decade with our three distinct brands – Ascott, Somerset and Citadines – which cater to travellers’ different lifestyles. Our properties in Thailand have been performing well with an average occupancy of above 80%. Ascott’s latest serviced residence, Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor, will offer travellers another international-class accommodation which they can call home. It also reinforces Ascott’s position as the market leader in Thailand with over 1,700 apartments in nine properties.”
