Hilton Hotels have confirmed their takeover of two Hotels in Thailand, located in Bangkok and Phuket, respectively. With another property set to open in the nation’s capital over the coming months, Hilton continues to expand its coverage in Thailand.
As part of the latest deal, the group will assume responsibility for management of DoubleTree by Hilton in the Ploenchit region of Bangkok, although ownership of the property will be retained by Majestic Grande Company Limited. Located at Sukhumvit Soi 2 and Offering a total of 251-rooms, DoubleTree by Hilton Bangkok Ploenchit will also feature a dining and bar outlet, along with a swimming pool and fitness centre. The hotel will begin operations this year.
The Phuket hotel, owned by Stone Bitters, will be branded Hilton Garden Inn in Bang Tao, Phuket. Hilton Garden Inn Phuket Bang Tao will feature a total of 177 rooms, along with two dining and bar outlets, a swimming pool and a fitness centre. The hotel is scheduled to officially open for business in 2020.
“We are deeply committed to expanding our presence in Thailand and introducing more brands from our portfolio,” said Hilton Senior Vice President of Development, Asia and Australasia, Guy Phillips.
“Hilton Garden Inn is a category-leading mid-market brand and we are confident it will be a great success in Thailand,” said Sean Wooden, who is the Vice President of Brand Management, Asia-Pacific. “DoubleTree by Hilton is already proving to be a great success in a country,” he continued.
With the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok slated to open its doors later in 2018, these two latest deals will further consolidate Hilton’s multi-brand presence in Thailand, where sustained growth and development in the tourism sector show no sign of abating.
