In its efforts to provide more hotel and hospitality services in the country, Movenpick Hotels and Resorts recently signed a deal with the Bangkok Dust Medical Services (BDMS) to manage and rebrand a famous landmark hotel in the city: the Nai Lert Park Hotel.
Under New Management
The Nai Lert Park Hotel was originally built and officially opened in 1984 in one of the city’s central business districts. It is now under renovations and would be managed by the Movenpick management at the beginning of 2019. This Sukhumvit hotel near BTS is accessible to major city attractions, embassies, malls, offices, and other places that tourists in the urban area would love to explore.
Expanding Portfolio for Movenpick
Movenpick has already established its name in the hotel and hospitality industry in Thailand. The rebranded Sukhumvit hotel near BTS isn’t the first of its kind either: Movenpick has already invested and is currently running two properties in Bangkok: Movenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok, and Movenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok. The new deal will be the ninth property in its portfolio in Thailand.
In early August this year, Movenpick rebranded Asara Villa and Suite Hua Hin and reopened it as Movenpick Asara Resort and Spa Hua Hin. It is a beautiful oceanfront resort with 96 rooms for its guests. It is a perfect destination for many tourists who hope to relax near the country’s clear waters. The property is just two hours away from the capital.
Aside from rebranding the famous Bangkok landmark, the group also plans to open 11 new properties across nine countries this year. Some of these are the Movenpick in Hua Hin, Movenpick Hotel Basra in Iraq, Movenpick Resort and Spa Kuredhivaru in Maldives, Movenpick Hotel du Lac Tunis in Tunisia, Kenya’s Movenpick Hotel and Residences Nairobi, Movenpick Hotel Sylhet in Bangladesh. Movenpick Hotel and Convention Centre KLIA in Malaysia, Movenpick Resort El Ein Bay in Egypt, Movenpick Hotel Apartments and Movenpick Hotel in UAE, and Movenpick Resort Khao Yai in Thailand.
The group has more than 40 projects in their development pipeline, with the hopes to enter new markets including Muscat, Oman, Abidjan, Cove d’Ivoire, Was Al Khaimah, UAE, Abuja, Nigeria, and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
