IHG has signed a management agreement with Siam Sindhorn to debut its Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand in Bangkok, Thailand.
The hotel, scheduled to open in 2020, will be the first Kimpton hotel in Thailand, and only the second across the South East Asia region.
The new-build Kimpton Bangkok will feature 349 guest rooms, including 124 serviced residences.
The hotel will be located in the heart of the Langsuan area right beside Lumpini Park, one of the largest public parks in the city.
Kimpton Bangkok will be part of Sindhorn Village, a 22-acre mega mixed-use development with a rich selection of bespoke dining and retail options.
The hotel will feature two dining outlets, a swimming pool, gym and spa. Occupants of the serviced residences will have access to the Executive Club, and the property will be equipped with seven meeting rooms with capacity to host functions close to 200 guests.
Clarence Tan, Managing Director South East Asia and Korea (SEAK), IHG said, “In line with our plans to bring our Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand to highly sought-after destinations across the globe, we want to address the rising needs of travellers in the region for a sophisticated yet personalised lifestyle travel experience. The brand is iconic for its heartfelt and unconventional approach to boutique hospitality, and we’re confident that Kimpton Bangkok will be no exception — delighting guests with an unscripted ridiculously personalised experience, right in the heart of one of Bangkok’s most desirable locations.”
Acquired by IHG in January 2015, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is recognised for its award-winning portfolio of unique restaurants and bars led by talented chefs and bartenders.
