Swiss hotel group Movenpick Hotels & Resorts opened its first serviced residence in Asia yesterday, located in the Thai capital. The Movenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok – situated in the west of the city in the Ekkamai retail and dining district – is the group’s second property in the country and the first of three new properties Movenpick is set to begin managing by Q4 2017.
The Movenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok includes 158 one- and two-bedroom serviced apartments. Residences come in at between 32 and 75 square metres, and offer kitchen equipment, complimentary wifi and floor-to-ceiling city-view windows. Additional facilities within the property include a 25-metre outdoor saltwater swimming pool, an indoor rooftop fitness centre and what the property describes as a “modest but well-equipped” meeting space. An on-site all-day restaurant is also present.
Andrew Langdon, Movenpick Hotels & Resorts global chief development officer and senior vice president Asia, said he expects the property to capitalise on the Ekkamai district’s popularity among long-stay overseas visitors.
“The high quality of finishing and variety of spacious layouts, combined with our Swiss attention to detail is sure to make Movenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok a high-demand option in an area that’s already popular with long-term expatriates,” said Langdon. “With seven unit types to choose from, guests can find the perfect base to suit their personal lifestyle needs.”
Movenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok is running a promotional offer of THB30,000++ (US$857++) per month for a one-bedroom residence, along with a complimentary two-night stay in Khao Yai for bookings made before April 30, 2017.
