Thailand: Pan Pacific Hotels Group has signed its first PARKROYAL Serviced Suites in Bangkok, with developer Phachara Suites Co. Ltd.

PARKROYAL Suites Bangkok will be opening in Q2 2019 and will be the Group's first property in the Bangkok market. It will join Pan Pacific Hotels Group's portfolio of serviced apartments in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Ningbo as well as soon to open properties in Jakarta and Johor. Pan Pacific Hotels Group was recently named Top 5 Serviced Residences in the region by the readers of DestinAsian, a leading consumer travel publication.

The 194-unit PARKROYAL Suites Bangkok is located at Sukhumvit Soi 6, off Sukhumvit Road, the main artery of Bangkok running through its tourist, commercial and residential areas. The nearest station, Nana BTS skytrain station, is a  five minute walk from the property, which is also within walking distance of some of the city's newest shopping malls, including Central Embassy and Terminal 21.

PARKROYAL Suites Bangkok will be a conversion from the current Phachara Suites and will undergo a thorough refurbishment. When it reopens, the property will offer 194 suites, featuring studios (50 square metres) and two-bedroom units (130 square metres).Amenities include an all-day dining restaurant, meeting facilities, fitness facilities including a swimming pool.

Thanin and Nuanswat Laohapiengsak, principals at Phachara Suites Co Ltd, said: "We're delighted to own the first PARKROYAL-branded property in Bangkok. We love the energy of the brand, which resonates with this city of a thousand smiles. The PARKROYAL brand is about warm and passionate people who genuinely care for others, and to us, this is key to helping our guests feel a sense of belonging. The rebranding to PARKROYAL will breathe new life into the property, and we're excited to see PARKROYAL Suites Bangkok grow into one of the most people-centric places to stay in Bangkok."

Lothar Nessmann, CEO of Pan Pacific Hotels Group, said: "PARKROYAL is rapidly growing in Southeast Asia - besides Singapore, we operate properties in capital cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Yangon, and Ho Chi Minh, along with planned openings in Jakarta. We are excited to see the popularity of our brand, which is all about our people and the real connections they forge with our guests. It's great to return to this city, where we once operated a hugely-successful Pan Pacific serviced suites product, and look forward to creating more joyful experiences for travellers to Bangkok."
