Movenpick Hotels & Resorts, an upscale Swiss hospitality group, has detailed its expansion plans for Southeast Asia. 

Thailand is a key market for the group. Following the successful opening of the Movenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok in May, the group plans to expand its presence with the 264-room Movenpick Siam Hotel Pattaya early in 2016. Also on the Thai horizon are a further three properties in Phuket and Koh Samui, for a total of five hotels in Thailand by 2017.

Movenpick Hotels & Resorts will also be entering the Indonesian market with the 2016 opening of the Movenpick Resort & Spa Jumbaran in Bali. The 295-room resort will overlook Jumbaran Bay and feature a 500sqm ballroom, custom-designed kids’ club, business centre and meeting rooms, gym, library and spa. It will also be home to the Samasta Mall, which will consist of a wide collection of boutiques, restaurants, gourmet market and a Mövenpick ice cream parlour. 

Further hotels are being developed at strategic locations across Asia. These include Movenpick Hotel & Convention Centre Kuala Lumpur and Movenpick Resort & Spa Kuala Terrengganu in Malaysia; Movenpick Resort Boracay in the Philippines; Movenpick Hotel & Srate Guest House Chifeng, China; and Movenpick Resort & Spa Quy Nhon, Vietnam. 

These will join the group’s current portfolio of eight hotels within Asia, which are spread across Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, China and the Philippines.
