Jumeirah signs deal to run luxury Bangkok hotel

Five-star Jumeirah Bangkok will boast 305 rooms, set to be completed in 2014.

Jumeirah signs deal to run luxury Bangkok hotel
NEW DEAL: Jumeirah Group, which runs the Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach hotels in Dubai, is adding a new hotel in Bangkok.

Jumeirah Group, the Dubai-based hospitality company, said on Thursday it had been appointed to manage a luxury hotel in the heart of Bangkok.

The management agreement was signed by Gerald Lawless, executive chairman of Jumeirah Group and Ben Taechaubol, MD of Country Group (Thailand).

The 305-room, five-star luxury Jumeirah Bangkok, which will have a prime location on the legendary Chao Phraya River, close to the Sathorn Bridge and Bangkok's Central Business District, is slated to open in 2014.

The hotel is designed to offer a peaceful environment for business and leisure travellers in the middle of bustling Bangkok, the company said in a statement.

It will form the centerpiece of a mixed-use development that integrates international and local Thai styles, it added.

Jumeirah Bangkok is the second management agreement signed by Jumeirah in Thailand, following the Jumeirah Private Island Phuket project agreed in 2008.

This brings the total number of properties under development or in operation by Jumeirah globally to 41.
