FRANKFURT, GERMANY—Pentahotels has signed a new management agreement with The Nest Property Company Ltd., a subsidiary of PM Group, to open the first Pentahotel in Bangkok in 2020. Pentahotel Bangkok, Ploenchit, will be located in Lumpini. It is the brand’s first official step toward expansion in Southeast Asia, building on plans to open its second Hong Kong property this summer.
The hotel will have 157 guestrooms, a swimming pool and gym. As a new-build property, tailored to Pentahotels’ design standards, the property will include the brand’s design-led environment, which includes the signature Pentalounge.
“The Pentahotels brand concept offers an entirely new hotel experience to guests, which has seen tremendous success in Europe and Asia. In Bangkok, we have chosen the Lumpini location for its international business appeal and vibrant local and expatriate scenes, and we are confident that this new location will pave the way for our successful operations in Thailand,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group, Pentahotels’ parent management company.
JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group acted as the exclusive advisor to PM Group in sourcing a hotel operator and negotiating the terms of the agreement.
