Mövenpick has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Thailand to nine properties after signing an agreement to re-brand and manage the renowned Nai Lert Park Hotel in Bangkok.

The hotel, located in an oasis of lush landscaped gardens on Wireless Road, will re-open under Mövenpick’s management in early 2019 after a comprehensive refurbishment programme.

Offering 294 guest rooms and a wide range of business and leisure facilities, it will be Mövenpick’s third property in the Thai capital, joining Mövenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok and Mövenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok.

Close to major attractions, malls, embassies and corporate offices and within a 10-minute walk of Ploenchit BTS skytrain station and Phetchaburi MRT metro station, the property offers guests convenient access to the entire city.

“Opportunities to manage legendary hotels do not arise often, and we’re delighted to bring Mövenpick’s signature style to the Nai Lert Park Hotel, which has been a Bangkok landmark for more than three decades,” said Andrew Langdon, Chief Development Officer for Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.

“We look forward to moving this captivating property into an exciting new era as we introduce a health-conscious generation of guests to Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok and further provide world-class wellness facilities in association with the adjoining BDMS Wellness Clinic.”

Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Public Company Limited (BDMS) was established on 30 October 1969. Through business expansion, the company was listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand on 2 October 1991 and registered its conversion to Public Company Limited in 1994.

BDMS, ranked in the top five private hospital groups globally in terms of revenue, is also one of the most prestigious hospital networks in the Asia-Pacific region with a total of 45 hospitals across the network that have been accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI).

BDMS offers world-class medical care and treatment to both local and international patients, complemented by the latest medical technology.

Dr. Poramaporn Prasarttong-Osoth, COO of BDMS group, said, “We are excited to work with Mövenpick to introduce a Wellness Resort with world-class hospitality as well as specialised in-house wellness programmes that are designed for prevention and the achievement of a healthy lifestyle.”

All rooms and suites will feature contemporary designs and high-tech amenities while resort facilities will include a large freeform outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre and wellness spa. The hotel’s restaurant will serve all natural, organic Thai and international cuisine, the lobby lounge will offer all-day health-conscious refreshments and the pool bar will provide a perfect spot for informal gatherings.

Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok will also feature a ballroom and function rooms with direct garden access.

The Nai Lert Park Hotel originally opened in 1984 but closed its doors at the end of 2016 to undergo a complete refurbishment.
