InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) will debut its luxury boutique brand Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in two new markets next month, with Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok opening in Thailand on 1 October 2020 and Kimpton Shinjuku Tokyo opening in Japan on 2 October 2020.
Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, the first hotel in South East Asia for the brand, will open in the Thai capital at the heart of the Langsuan area and next to Lumpini Park. The hotel will feature 362 rooms, including 131 serviced residences, and a variety of F&B outlets.
Inspired by New York’s art and fashion scene, the Kimpton Shinjuku Tokyo is located close to the iconic Shibuya Crossing and Shinjuku Station. Kimpton Shinjuku Tokyo will offer 151 guest rooms, two F&B outlets, three meeting and event spaces, a health and fitness centre, and a chapel on level 16 doubling as an immersive art gallery for exclusive exhibits.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in 2015 and has since seen exciting growth beyond the US into Greater China and Europe. The brand is set to continue its momentum with over 30 new hotels in destinations including Bali and Paris in April 2021, and Hong Kong and in Malaysia in 2023.
