Minor Hotel Group (MHG) will take over the
management contract of the 568-key Amari Atrium Bangkok hotel on 1
The property will undergo an extensive
renovation including guest rooms and public areas prior to being
rebranded as Avani in 2014.
The 23-storey hotel is located in New Petchburi Road, a busy commercial and retail area in the Asoke-Sukhumvit
area of the Thai capital.
Centred around a
12-storey atrium lobby, the hotel offers two Executive Floors,
along with Deluxe and Superior guest rooms.
Facilities at the
hotel include a selection of restaurants and bars, a swimming pool
and sun deck, a fitness centre, a ballroom and additional meetings
and events space.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor
Hotel Group, commented, “We are very excited to announce our first
Avani in Thailand and also to enter into this partnership with the
GP Group. Taking over the management of this well established city centre hotel will be a great launch platform for our new Avani
brand here in Bangkok.”
Avani Hotels & Resorts is the new hotel brand
which was launched by MHG in 2011 to complement the group’s
five-star Anantara brand.
There are currently two Avani resorts
in operation, both in Sri Lanka, and MHG has plans to grow the
brand across Asia, India, the Indian Ocean and in the Middle East.
Two additional resorts will join the portfolio later this year, in Quy Nhon, Vietnam and in Sepang, Malaysia.
