StayWell Holdings has announced the signing of luxury hotel, The Prince Akatoki Riverside, in the heart of Bangkok. Scheduled to open in fourth quarter 2021, The Prince Akatoki Riverside Bangkok solidifies expansion plans for the luxury brand. The launch of the hotel marks the first branded property in South East Asia for the group, and the third The Prince Akatoki hotel globally after London and yet to open Guangzhou.
The Prince Akatoki Riverside Bangkok will have 255 rooms, including three floors of Club Rooms with Executive Lounge, and a Presidential Suite that spans over 1,850 SQFT. With multiple eateries, three bars, and six meeting rooms planned, the property will appeal to leisure and business travellers alike.
Masahiko Koyama, President of Prince Hotels Inc. said he could not be more excited to bring the best of Japan to Thailand’s cosmopolitan capital of Bangkok, with the new The Prince Akatoki property signing.
“Together with StayWell Holdings, we look forward to continuing to transform Prince Hotels Inc. from a Japanese-exclusive brand to a global brand. With London, Guangzhou and now Bangkok in our portfolio, The Prince Akatoki offers guests a luxury Japanese hospitality experience regardless of where they are travelling,” Koyama said.
“As the most visited city in the world, Bangkok is an integral part of our expansion plans, with already strategic regional sales and marketing office in the region this flagship hotel will be instrumental in increasing Prince Hotels exposure in the region. The Prince Akatoki Riverside Bangkok will allow those travelling to South East Asia the opportunity to experience a new brand which reflects both visual elements synonymous with Japan and signature experiences that are unique to Japanese hospitality,” he said.
Simon Wan, President and Director of StayWell Holdings, said that the group’s expansion into Thailand not only cements their commitment to the Asia region, but also demonstrates the industry’s ability to forge ahead despite times of crisis.
