Hotel Indigo to offer nature-inspired stays at The Forestias

Hotel Indigo is expanding its presence in Thailand with plans to develop a new property under the brand in The Forestias development of Bangkok.

The development of this 274-key hotel comes from an agreement between IHG Hotels & Resorts and the property developer Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited.

Drawing on the environment

Slated to open in 2026, Hotel Indigo The Forestias Bangkok will become a part of the city’s highly anticipated mixed-used Forestias development spanning 64 hectares on the eastern fringe of Bangkok. Nature will be the leading inspiration for the new hotel.

Saowarin Chanprakaisi, Senior Director, Development, South East Asia & Korea, IHG, said: “MQDC and IHG have a shared vision of providing our guests with the best stay experience while operating in total harmony with the natural environment. We are thrilled to be part of this exciting project that will set the benchmark for community living.”

“The Hotel Indigo brand is growing in Thailand, and adds to IHG’s continued expansion in the luxury and lifestyle space. Hotel Indigo properties provide a gateway to some of the world’s most inspiring and culturally rich neighbourhoods while capturing the very spirit of their communities. Hotel Indigo The Forestias Bangkok will have a strong appeal to travellers searching for an authentic hotel experience that is strongly rooted in its community and environment.”

Mr. Paisit Kaenchan, Head of Hotel & Hospitality Business, Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC), commented: “We are delighted to work with IHG to introduce Hotel Indigo The Forestias Bangkok to this unique development. The Hotel Indigo brand is perfect as the flagship hotel for The Forestias thanks to a design philosophy that brings its neighbourhood to life.”

“Through this we will see a strong connection forged between our guests, the community and the environment, and our visitors can expect to be fully immersed into the eco-educational and nature experiences offered at The Forestias.”

“Combining innovation and technology, The Forestias will become a destination of the future to live, work and play in a sustainable way. More than half of the project space will be forest and green spaces rich in wildlife, with residential, community and leisure spaces sensitively integrated.”

A new lifestyle hub

The new property by Hotel Indigo promises an immersive stay that brings you close to nature. The design will draw on the rich environment it’s surrounded by, in a development aiming to bring nature, wildlife and people together in harmony.

Guests of the new hotel will be able to make use of amenities including a cafe, lounge and pool bar, which serve dishes made from local ingredients, as well as a gym, swimming pool and more than 6,500 sq m of meeting space.

Within the development, the hotel will join retail, dining and entertainment options, alongside residential and office space, meeting areas and a hospital. The development will also be home to IHG’s 85-room Six Senses The Forestias hotel also featuring 27 residences close to a five-hectare forest park.

The hotel, and this development, will be just 20 minutes from Bangkok city centre and a 15-minute journey from Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Both the city centre and airport will be accessible by a high-speed rail link.

More growth is ahead for IHG in Thailand, with 39 hotels currently in operation and another 37 properties in the pipeline.
