SINGAPORE – Oakwood® today announced the opening date of its seventh property in Thailand, and fourth in the capital, Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok. Following the commercial success of Oakwood Hotel & Residence Sri Racha, V.M.P.C. Group awarded Oakwood its second management agreement during a recent signing ceremony. Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok, scheduled to open on 19 May 2021, will add 142 elegantly appointed studios and one-bedroom apartments to the Thai capital.
“We are delighted to receive this vote of confidence from V.M.P.C. Group. The opportunity to manage this premium real estate on their behalf is a privilege we do not take lightly. Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok will enhance the hospitality landscape surrounding the iconic Chao Phraya River and offer an elevated experience for guests seeking a residential stay. Drumming the heartbeat of local Thai community whilst delivering the spirit of Bangkok with life along the river, global travellers can finally enjoy a personal safe sanctuary where they can define hospitality excellence on their own terms,” said Dean Schreiber, interim chief executive officer of Oakwood.
Located a short distance away from Asiatique The Riverfront, a famed open-air mall by the river as well as ICON SIAM, one of the largest shopping malls in Asia, Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok also offers the convenience of being flanked between two BTS train stations – Saphan Taksin and Surasak. Guests of the property will enjoy amenities such as an outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre, sauna, two meeting venues, lobby bar, restaurant as well as a Residence Lounge.
“The success of Oakwood Hotel & Residence Sri Racha gave us confidence in Oakwood’s business model. We believe that Oakwood’s international acclaim for delivering world-class service excellence and strong global network will add value to our property. Bangkok has tremendous potential for a differentiated hospitality experience, especially in the area along the Chao Phraya River. The opening of Oakwood Hotel & Residence Bangkok puts us in good stead to elevate the standard of residential lifestyle for local guests and the gradual return of international visitors,” said Prinya Tieanworn, chief executive officer of V.M.P.C. Group.
