Best Western has held a ground-breaking ceremony for its first Vib hotel in Bangkok.
Located in north Bangkok, Vib Bangkok Sanampao will feature 89 rooms, all equipped with international power outlets, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. As per the brand’s contemporary concept, the hotel will feature a social lobby area with free Wi-Fi, “grab-n-go” snack stations and a fitness centre.
The property is scheduled to open in late 2017.
The hotel is being developed by the same company that owns the Best Western Plus Wanda Grand Hotel, which opened in north Bangkok in 2016.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the owner of Best Western Plus Wanda Grand Hotel once again for another exciting hotel in Bangkok,” said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western’s managing director of international operations for Asia. “Best Western Plus Wanda Grand Hotel has been a great success since it opened earlier this year, and I am confident that Vib Bangkok Sanampao will be similarly popular with guests.
“With its ultra-modern design, state-of-the-art amenities and bright, vibrant social spaces, Vib Bangkok Sanampao will resonate with Asia’s new generation of travellers. We look forward to introducing this exciting new concept to Thailand in late 2017,” Berrivin added.
Vib Bangkok Sanampao will join Best Western’s growing portfolio in Thailand, which currently includes hotels in Bangkok, Phuket and Buriram. The company will also enter a series of new markets in the coming years, including Pattaya, Hua Hin and Krabi, as well as adding more hotels in Bangkok.
