Marriott International has signed a deal to open its first Ritz-Carlton property in Thailand’s capital, scheduled to open in 2023.
Housed within a 50-storey commercial tower across Lumphini Park, The Ritz-Carlton, Bangkok will be part of the ‘One Bangkok’ lifestyle district. It will offer 32 suites, 259 guest rooms, and an array of amenities including four restaurants and bars, a fitness centre, and a ballroom for large events.
Currently, The Ritz-Carlton brand operates in Koh Samui and Phulay Bay. This third property will raise Marriott’s portfolio to 132 luxury properties in APAC, including 26 Ritz-Carlton hotels.
“An extraordinary addition to our luxury portfolio”
Craig Smith, president and managing director of Asia-Pacific, Marriott International, Inc, said: “We are thrilled to announce plans for our first Ritz-Carlton hotel in the dynamic capital of Thailand, a country where we currently operate two Ritz-Carlton resorts.
“Having a Ritz-Carlton in Bangkok – especially in the exciting One Bangkok district – will be an extraordinary addition to our luxury portfolio for our Marriott Bonvoy loyalty members, tourists, business travellers and local residents who seek the brand’s luxury accommodations, world-class service and culinary expertise.”
One Bangkok will be a ‘global landmark destination’ in the city’s CBD and is expected to open in 2022. It will offer a mix of hotels, commercial offices, shops, dining outlets, as well as cultural events — all set within a landscape of green and open spaces.
“Everything the modern lifestyle demands in one place”
Soon Su Lin, CEO, development of One Bangkok, added: “We look forward to showcasing this iconic luxury brand within One Bangkok, which will give guests everything the modern lifestyle demands in one place. The Ritz-Carlton’s signature service will also set the benchmark for the operational excellence and level of service we aim to provide at One Bangkok for all our residences, commercial workspaces, and lifestyle shops and restaurants.”
