Minor Hotel Group has opened its first Oaks
property in Asia and confirmed that another Oaks hotel will open
in China next year.
Oaks Hotels & Resorts is one of the leading
providers of serviced apartments in Australasia and the UAE, which
Minor Hotel Group took over ownership of in 2011.
The brand has added a number of properties to
its portfolio in 2012, most recently in Thailand – Oaks Bangkok
Sathorn – which is the 41st in the brand’s portfolio, and the
first of its planned expansion into Asia.
The 115 apartments at the Oaks Bangkok Sathorn are generously proportioned with
separate bedrooms, a living area and kitchen in a choice of
studio, one, two or three-bedroom configurations, ranging from
39 up to 185 square metres. Balconies open to city and river views
offering an urban sanctuary above the bustling city.
Oaks Bangkok Sathorn
is located next door to and shares some facilities with Anantara
Bangkok Sathorn, another of Minor Hotel Group’s properties in the
city, and is just a short stroll to Bangkok’s Bus Rapid Transit
(BRT) where guests can connect with the sky train (BTS) and easily
access many of the attractions on offer in this vibrant, sensory
Guests can work out in the gym, enjoy a swim in one
of Bangkok’s longest hotel pools, indulge in a spa treatment at Senses Spa, or play tennis on the onsite court. Dining includes
the innovative 100° East all-day dining restaurant and gourmet
pizzeria Crust. For business guests an array of conference and
meeting facilities are available.
Oaks Sanya in China will be the next to join
the portfolio when it opens in late 2013. The new property is
currently under development on Hainan Island, and will feature 122 two and three-bedroom duplex
apartments, each with kitchen facilities.
Oaks Sanya will also
feature a Chinese restaurant, a bar, a kids club and a gym. The
apartments overlook both bays of the Serenity Coast peninsula and
are located five minutes’ walk from the beach.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotel Group, said, “Since taking
ownership of Oaks Hotels & Resorts in 2011, we have been looking
forward to expanding the brand into Asia and these two properties
are the start of that expansion. Oaks is a great complementary
addition to Minor Hotel Group’s portfolio and we plan to continue
to grow the brand in Asia and beyond in the year ahead.”
