The property has been relaunched following a refurbishment and rebranding of the former Parkview Executive Suites.
“We are delighted to introduce the Somerset brand to Lao PDR through Somerset Vientiane,” said Tony Soh, Ascott’s chief corporate officer.
“We have worked closely with the owners to put in place a comprehensive refurbishment program that will progressively transform its apartment units, common area and guest amenities, in order to uphold our Somerset brand standards that are well-established across Asia.”
Located in the Sikhottabong district of the Lao capital, Vientiane, the Somerset offers a range of 116 units, ranging from studios to two-bedroom apartments. Facilities at the property include a gymnasium, swimming pool, tennis court, sauna, jacuzzi, children’s playground and residents’ lounge. There is also a business centre for corporate travellers, and Ascott said it has increased the building’s internet speed.
The Laos opening means that Ascott is now present in seven Southeast Asian countries. It will also launch its first ever property in Myanmar in 2018.
