The Novotel* IMPACT Muang Thong Thani, a THB 2
billion project, located in Nonthaburi on the outskirts of
Bangkok, is scheduled to open in January 2011.
The 10-storey hotel will feature 380 guest rooms
of which 276 are Standard Rooms, 46 Deluxe Standard Rooms, 40
Premium Rooms, 4 Handicapped Rooms, 10 Honeymoon Suites A and 4
Honeymoon Suites B. Originally there was a Royal Suite planned for
the 10th floor but this has since been cancelled and has been
replaced with a club lounge.
Interior works, which start this month, are
expected to be completed in October.
After that, electrical system is to be installed. The period
October and December 2010 will be when all systems are checked
touch-up works gearing up to the official launch. Standard and Premium
mockup rooms are already finished.
*When we spoke to
a spokesperson from IMPACT Exhibition Management about this
property he admitted that Accor has not yet signed a management
contract for the hotel - which means it is not currently
officially a Novotel - although he did say that a verbal agreement
had already been reached. Teams from Accor are doing inspections,
and IMPACT are hoping the management contract will be signed very
Update 3 September 2010:
Since this article was written, a spokesperson from IMPACT
confirmed with us that a management contract between the two
parties has now, finally, been signed.
