Nobu signs for Bangkok double with local developer
Nobu Hospitality has inked a Thai-wide development agreement with the country’s real estate group, Asset World Corp Public Company (AWC).
The exclusive collaboration will begin with two projects in Bangkok, comprising one hotel and one restaurant.
AWC and Nobu Hospitality detailed they will soon announce the precise location of the new Nobu Hotel in Bangkok, which will feature a distinct program and experience being collaboratively planned by both partners.
