Pan Pacific Hotels Group today confirmed that
its agreement to operate the popular Pan Pacific Bangkok hotel in
Thailand until the end of 2010 will not be renewed.
The group has
managed the hotel, owned by Ramaland Development, under the Pan
Pacific brand since 1995. Ramaland Development is owned by Kajima
Pan Pacific Hotels Group will still operate the Pan
Pacific Serviced Suites Bangkok, which opened earlier this year,
on Thonglor, Sukhumvit Soi 55.
“We have had a great relationship with Ramaland
Development Co. Ltd the last 15 years and we wish them every
success with the property,” said A. Patrick Imbardelli, President
and CEO of Pan Pacific Hotels Group. “We will be strongly
pursuing new opportunities for our brands in Bangkok and Thailand.
We are confident of the long term prospects of this amazing
country and it will not be long before we find that brand-defining
and brand-relevant hotel for us.”
The Pan Pacific Bangkok is one of the best
hotels in the colourful city, and has a very strong Japanese
following thanks, in part, to its very lose proximity to Thaniya Plaza.
The hotel will be rebranded as the
Bangkok Lumpini Park on 1 January 2011.
