InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) announced the signing of a management agreement with Elysian Hotel Management Company, for a unique new property near Khao Yai National Park in central Thailand.
Set to open in 2020, InterContinental Khao Yai Swan Lake Resort will be an integral part of the Swan Lake mixed use project which is being positioned as a ‘destination retreat’. The resort creates a genuine sense of connection to nature with stunning views over seven man-made lakes, mountain views, and over 50,000 trees in the 100-acre site.
Guests at the 61-key resort will enjoy the features they expect from an IHG Resort with a club lounge and resort centre, pool and gym. In early 2021 facilities will be expanded to include a train-inspired spa, as well as a kids’ club and wedding chapel, making the resort a dream wedding venue for nature lovers.
Designed by award-winning architect and interior designer Bill Bensley, it takes historical inspiration from the area’s gateway for rail transportation to north-east Thailand during King Rama V’s reign. Opening with 45 luxury rooms, unique train-car suites will be added as its premium accommodation in 2021.
