Marriott International, a US-based hotel company, is opening three new properties in Thailand in 2012.
The new properties, Rayong Marriott Resort and Spa, The Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit, and the Marriott Executive Apartments Bangkok – Sukhumvit Thonglor, will all open in 2012.
Craig Smith, the company chief operating officer for Asia, said, ‘We are delighted to be expanding our footprint in Thailand and bringing these three wonderful new hotels to the country. We have had a long relationship with Thailand having opened our first hotel here, the JW Marriott Bangkok, some 15 years ago. It is great to be able to bring these new hotels to Thailand which we feel will have a very positive impact on both domestic and international travellers to the country. We are totally committed to Thailand for the long term, and in addition to these three hotels we will continue to grow in Thailand with a further five hotels set to open in the next three to four years.’
The 296-room, Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit is located close to the BTS Skytrain station, and is aimed at the business travel segment, offering both leisure and business facilities. The 206-room, Rayong Marriott Resort and Spa, is located on the Mae Phim beach and offers beautiful ocean views, while Marriott Executive Apartments Bangkok – Sukhumvit Thonglor is a full service luxury hotel for extended stays, located in the same building as the existing Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit. All the hotels are offering amenities including restaurants, lounges and bars, and event space, as well as leisure facilities.
