Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT -

Ac­corho­tels has opened two lo­ca­tion-spe­cific ho­tels: the Ibis Bangkok Im­pact ho­tel in Thai­land and Ibis Saigon Air­port ho­tel in Viet­nam.

The new prop­erty that opened in the Land of Smiles adds 587 rooms to the nearby 380-room Novo­tel. There are 18 storeys of­fer­ing 475 twin rooms and 112 king rooms, 54 of which are in­ter­con­nect­ing rooms. Each room is equipped with a 32-inch flatscreen LED TV and tea- and cof­fee-mak­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

The ho­tel is lo­cated next to the Im­pact Muang Thong Thani com­mer­cial com­plex con­sist­ing of an arena, con­ven­tion cen­tre and ex­hi­bi­tion halls.

The area will soon wel­come the new Metropoli­tan Rapid Tran­sit Pink Line and is a 30-minute drive from down­town Bangkok. The prop­erty is also a 15-minute drive from Don Mueang In­ter­na­tional Air­port or a one-hour drive from Su­varn­ab­humi In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Leisure op­tions due to ar­rive soon in­clude a wa­ter park, go-kart track, shop­ping cen­tres, a beach club and ma­rina.

High­lights of the ho­tel in­clude a spa­cious lobby area and 500-seat Taste Restau­rant, of­fer­ing healthy meal op­tions, lo­cal spe­cial­i­ties and pas­tries. A 24-hour Ibis café and bar is avail­able for guests to en­joy drinks or snacks, while the Ibis web cor­ner of­fers wifi ac­cess and a dig­i­tal juke­box.

Pa­trick Basset, chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer of Ac­corho­tels, up­per South­east and North­east Asia, said: “The city presents in­ter­na­tional event plan­ners with count­less op­por­tu­ni­ties for unique func­tions that com­bine value and flex­i­bil­ity with Thai­land’s dis­tinc­tive cul­ture and hospi­tal­ity. The new Ibis Bangkok Im­pact not only puts Asia’s sec­ond-largest ex­hi­bi­tion and con­ven­tion venue on our guests’ doorstep, but the en­tire city at their fin­ger­tips, which we be­lieve will at­tract even more vis­i­tors.”

Mean­while, the Ibis Saigon Air­port also opened in March, lo­cated near Tan Son Nhat In­ter­na­tional Air­port and just a five-minute walk from the do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional ter­mi­nals.

The prop­erty of­fers 282 rooms, in­clud­ing stu­dios, one- and two-bed­room ser­viced apart­ments equipped with kitch­enettes. All rooms are sound­proofed and of­fer the sig­na­ture“Sweet Bed by Ibis”, as well as black­out cur­tains.

F&B out­lets in­clude all-day-din­ing restau­rant Oopen, of­fer­ing a global cui­sine with buf­fet and à la carte op­tions. Rooftop bar The Hub of­fers views of air­craft land­ing and tak­ing off, and serves a range of fu­sion dishes with a wide se­lec­tion of beers and cock­tails from noon to 1am. Themed events and meet­ing pack­ages are avail­able for con­fer­ences, team-build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and cor­po­rate func­tions in the grand ball­room, which can be di­vided into three smaller func­tion rooms and a meet­ing room. Other fa­cil­i­ties in­clude a gym, swim­ming pool and sauna rooms.

Basset added:“Ibis Saigon Air­port is well po­si­tioned, given its lo­ca­tion and dy­namic of­fer­ings, for the an­tic­i­pated con­tin­ued eco­nomic and tourism growth in Viet­nam.”ac­corho­tels.com
