Marriott International, Inc. announced it has signed an agreement to open its first Ritz-Carlton hotel in Bangkok with One Bangkok Co., Ltd., a joint venture between TCC Assets and Frasers Property.
The hotel is expected to occupy a planned 50-storey tower in the One Bangkok lifestyle development, now rising in the city’s commercial centre. Construction on The Ritz-Carlton Bangkok has already commenced, with the hotel expected to open in 2023.
“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,” said Craig Smith, President and Managing Director of Asia-Pacific, Marriott International, Inc.
“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.”
Plans for The Ritz-Carlton, Bangkok feature 259 guestrooms, including 32 suites and one Ritz-Carlton Suite, on 25 levels of the tower. The hotel is being designed as an urban resort, with contemporary style and locally influenced design, four restaurants and bars, and fitness facilities.
Plans also include a signature Ritz-Carlton Spa with six treatment rooms, wet lounges, whirlpools, saunas and steam rooms for both guests and locals. The hotel is also slated to include function facilities, as well as a ballroom that would be the largest of its kind in Thailand.
