Marriott International this month celebrated the milestone opening of its 50th hotel in Thailand with the Madi Paidi Bangkok, Autograph Collection, a 56-room and suites boutique hotel in Bangkok’s Thong Lor district.
Marriott expects to add a further 10 hotels by the end of 2024 across its luxury, premium, select and longer stay brands in Thailand.
In the pipeline are a new Ritz-Carlton in Bangkok, and new leisure centric properties in Phuket and Khao Lak.
“We are absolutely delighted to celebrate Marriott International’s 50th hotel opening, marking a major milestone in our 27-year history in Thailand. A milestone that would not be possible without the trust and partnership of our hotel owners and franchisees,” said Jakob Helgen, area vice president for Marriott.
“With 50 hotels across 15 distinct brands in more than 10 destinations in Thailand and more expected to come, we take pride in offering a diverse range of accommodation that caters to both domestic and international travelers that highlights the beauty of the country,” he added.
The Ritz-Carlton brand is set to debut in Bangkok in 2024 with the opening of The Ritz-Carlton Bangkok. Occupying the first 24 floors of a 50-storey tower in the upcoming One Bangkok mixed-use development on Wireless Road, the hotel hopes to blend the brand’s legendary service with the best of Thai hospitality, design, culture, and cuisine.
The Tribute Portfolio brand is also expected to debut in the Thai Kingdom with the opening of the Tribute Portfolio Metropole Bangkok in 2024.
Other expected openings include two Marriott Executive Apartments in Sukhumvit 50 and 101, alongside the Le Méridien Phuket Mai Khao Beach Resort – all in 2023. Additionally, the flagship Marriott Hotels brand is also anticipated to debut in the resort town of Khao Lak in 2024.
Later this year, the experiential hotel brand, Moxy Hotels, expects to debut its playful spirit in the country with the opening of Moxy Bangkok Ratchaprasong in the city’s lifestyle district.
Courtyard by Marriott will add another two new hotels, one near the Suvarnabhumi International airport in Bangkok and another in Phuket, expected to open in late 2023 and 2024, respectively.
