With some of the biggest names in hospitality occupying its impressive array of skyscrapers and colonial palaces, there’s no shortage of big-brand hotel offerings in Bangkok. For discerning travellers who seek something a little more boutique, we’ve got some good news.
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced that it will be debuting its leading boutique hotel brand, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, in the Thai capital. This marks the brand’s first foray into the Thai market and its second property in South East Asia.
“We want to address the rising needs of travellers in the region for a sophisticated yet personalised lifestyle travel experience,” said Clarence Tan, Managing Director South East Asia and Korea (SEAK), IHG.
“The brand is iconic for its heartfelt and unconventional approach to boutique hospitality, and we’re confident that Kimpton Bangkok will be no exception.”
Slated for a 2020 opening, the new-build hotel will feature 249 artfully designed guest rooms, including 124 serviced residences, in the heart of Bangkok’s trendy Luangsuan area.
Kimpton Bangkok will be part of Singhorn Village, an expansive mixed-use leisure and business district with a wide array of bespoke dining, retail and event options available on guests’ doorstep.
