InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has entered a management agreement with Prime Living Soonvijai to develop new Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bangkok Soi Soonvijai hotel in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 200-room property is being built next to the flagship medical facility Bangkok General Hospital, and will also offer convenient access to the main city centre and Central Business District (CBD).

IHG South East Asia operations vice-president Leanne Harwood said: "We’ve been seeing encouraging signs of recovery in Bangkok’s tourism industry, once again proving the city’s resilience, and this includes the city’s growing position as a medical tourism destination."

The new property will feature fitness centre, swimming pool and recreation areas, as well as the brand’s signature Great Room for guests to dine and interact during their stay.

"The hotel’s opening will complement the expansion of Bangkok General Hospital"

The hotel will also feature self-service business centre, as well as free Wi-Fi in all guest rooms and throughout the property.

Prime Living Soonvijai co-founder Dr Chayaporn said: "As a relatively new player in the hospitality market, partnering with a reputable international hotel company such as IHG puts us at the forefront of the industry and is a major part of our growth strategy.

"The hotel’s opening will complement the expansion of Bangkok General Hospital and we look forward to delivering great guest experiences when it opens in 2018."

Through its five brands, IHG operates 17 properties in Thailand. In addition, the group is developing further nine hotels in the country.

With its nine hotel brands, IHG franchises, leases or manages around 4,700 hotels and 697,000 guest rooms in around 100 countries.
