Bangkok is set to get its third Avani hotel. Slated to open at the end of the year, the Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel will be along the city’s main commercial, business, and leisure artery of Sukhumvit in its up-and-coming On Nut and Phra Khanong neighborhoods.

The new-build 382-guestroom hotel will be part of the Century The Movie Plaza 2 retail complex with direct access to Bangkok’s Transit System (BTS) train line. The On Nut and Phra Khanong neighborhoods have much to offer travelers. The nearby W District been growing in popularity since its recent opening, with plenty of popular restaurants and avant garde galleries with work from local artists. Guests can take a short walk to a boat ride along the Phra Khanong Canal where they can see local Buddhist temples, Chinese shrines, and Muslim mosques rarely visited by outsiders.

“There is a rising demand for contemporary upscale hotels in Sukhumvit, and we are pleased to work with Avani Hotels & Resorts that fits the profile of the travelers we are targeting,” Kittiphun Poolvoralaks, executive xirector of Eak Pattanakit Co., said in a statement.
