InterContinental Hotels Group has signed a management agreement with Origin Property Public Company Limited to bring the Staybridge Suites brand to the Asia-Pacific region with two properties in Thailand.
The Staybridge Suites Bangkok Thonglor will open in 2019, in association with Nomura Real Estate Development Company Limited, and the Staybridge Suites Chonburi Siracha is slated for 2020.
“We are delighted to work again with our partner Origin Property Public Company Limited to expand our portfolio of differentiated hotels brands regionally," Rajit Sukumaran, chief development officer, Asia Middle East Africa at IHG, said in a statement. "With the rising demand for long-stay accommodation in Bangkok and Siracha, this represents an excellent opportunity for us to introduce Staybridge Suites. Longer term, we are excited about the potential to expand the brand further across Asia Pacific.”
The 303-guestroom Staybridge Suites Bangkok Thonglor will be located along the Thai capital’s main Sukhumvit Soi 55 road, a 10-minute walk from the Thonglor BTS station.
The 400-guestroom Staybridge Suites Chonburi Siracha, meanwhile, will attract business travelers doing businesses in two of the busiest container ports in South East Asia.
The developers, Origin One Company Limited and Origin One Thonglor Company Limited, are a subsidiary (“One Thonglor”) of Origin Property Public Company Limited. Origin One also owns Holiday Inn & Suites Siracha Laemchabang, which is due to open in 2020.
