Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 20 December 2012

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 brands 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 Groups properties in the city, and is just a short stroll to Bangkoks 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 city.

Guests can work out in the gym, enjoy a swim in one of Bangkoks 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

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 Groups portfolio and we plan to continue to grow the brand in Asia and beyond in the year ahead.
