This month, DoubleTree will celebrate the opening of two new properties, in two of the world’s most visited cities, Bangkok and Phuket.
Accommodating business travellers and leisure travellers, DoubleTree by Hilton Bangkok Ploenchit will open its doors in Bangkok’s city centre with close access to one of the area’s lively streets, cultural landmarks, trendy nightlife and the Ploenchit BTS Skytrain, offering convenient access to the rest of the city.
The brand also recently opened DoubleTree by Hilton Phuket Banthai Resort. Situated on the Andaman Sea, it is an idyllic tropical getaway to Thailand’s southern beaches that contrasts the bustling metropolitan north. The newly converted property sits in the heart of Patong and offers guests a complete resort experience with a number of breathtaking pools and swim-up bars, an array of international cuisines at The Port and The Shore, and for a limited time, will feature a deluxe cookie-themed suite complete with an in-room DoubleTree Cookie bar and cookie scented amenities and décor.
“Asia Pacific continues to be an integral part of the DoubleTree by Hilton growth story, especially during the brand’s 50th anniversary year. In addition to these new properties, we are slated to open close to 100 DoubleTree hotels throughout the region in the coming years, totalling more than 24,000 rooms,” said Shawn McAteer, global head and senior vice president, DoubleTree by Hilton. “Destinations throughout Thailand continue to see an increase in international visitors and we are excited to extend our warm welcome that guests have come to appreciate.”
“Our momentum in Asia Pacific, which is home to more than half of the world’s youth population, presents a tremendous opportunity for DoubleTree by Hilton to further deepen The Hilton Effect through meaningful career opportunities,” said Sean Wooden, vice president of brand management, Asia Pacific at Hilton.
“This year, Hilton has been certified as a Great Place to Work in Thailand and six other countries across Asia Pacific. For the third year running, we also continue to be the top hospitality company to work for in the list of Asia’s Best Multinational Workplaces. With every new DoubleTree by Hilton property that we launch, we open doors to growth and progress for more communities throughout the region.”
