by | 06 Apr 2021 | Pipeline, Projects

The TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database indicates that the Thai capital’s dynamic hotel market shows no signs of slowing down, with more than 40 schemes earmarked for the city.

Despite Thailand’s tourism industry suffering a huge blow due to Covid19, Bangkok’s hotel market remains resilient, with our research suggesting that 41 properties and 10,991 rooms are still in the pipeline. We find out more about these upcoming openings.

Hotel openings in Bangkok by year

In 2021, seven hotels with 2,064 rooms will open their doors – three are already in the pre-opening phase.

Things will pick up further in 2022, with 11 launches and 3,074 new rooms being planned. Then in 2023, another eight openings are scheduled to bring 1,711 keys into play, while 15 more properties and 4,142 rooms are expected to complete in 2024 and beyond.

Of these 41 new hotels, 28 will be in the four-star category, while 13 will be in the five-star luxury segment.

Top three hotel brands expanding in Bangkok

Eastin Hotels, The Ritz-Carlton Hotels and DusitD2 Hotels & Resorts will each open two hotels in Bangkok over the coming years, according to our researchers.

Eastin leads the list in terms of room count, with a total of 977 keys having been mooted. For reference, Ritz-Carlton and DusitD2 are neck and neck in this regard too – the former is planning 383 new rooms, while the latter’s aiming to deliver 381 extra keys.

Bangkok’s most anticipated openings

The 521-room Eastin Grand Hotel Phayathai Bangkok will open its doors in Q2 2022, as part of a larger mixed-use development, with direct access to Phayathai BTS station. Its facilities will include an all-day dining restaurant, a Chinese speciality venue, an outdoor pool with a bar, a gym and an executive lounge. Moreover, 4,285 sqm of versatile event space – plus a 285 sq m wedding chapel – should make it ideal for hosting a range of corporate and private functions.

Not to be overlooked, Ascott Thonglor Bangkok will debut on Sukhumvit Road in the heart of one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, known for its lifestyle venues, international schools and multinational headquarters. Due to open in late 2021, this 451-room hotel will offer easy access to the Skytrain, and guests will be able to choose between studio, one-, two- and three-room serviced apartments.

Meanwhile, The Langham, Bangkok at Chao Phraya River will launch down by the river in early 2023. At this 250-key luxury hotel, there’ll be a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, some of which will be decked out with a separate kitchen. Its 1,500 sq m ballroom will also be one of the largest in the city, and its F&B options will include a Cantonese fine-dining restaurant and the Palm Court, serving the brand’s signature afternoon tea.
