Deutsche Hospitality to make SE Asia debut

Steigenberger Hotel Riverside to open in Bangkok
Deutsche Hospitality will unveil its first hotel in south-east Asia when the Steigenberger Hotel Riverside opens in Bangkok in 2019.
“The hotel is our gateway to the market in Thailand and allows us to establish a brand presence in a city of superlatives,” explains Puneet Chhatwal, who has been chief executive of the company since 2012. “This also strengthens the presence of Deutsche Hospitality in our target growth market of Asia.”
Located on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the hotel will offer 259 rooms including deluxe rooms, suites, superior suites, honeymoon suites and a presidential suite. Its conference and banqueting facilities will extend over an area of 900m2.
Its F&B concept will boast features such as a pool restaurant, a roof terrace bar and restaurant and a VIP lounge. A 1,200m2 spa and gym area will contain both an indoor and an outdoor pool. There will also be shuttle boat tours.
The hotel will be operated via a management agreement, under which Thai company River Garden will be property owner and contractual partner.
Deutsche Hospitality, which rebranded from Steigenberger last year, encompasses more than 125 hotels across three separate hotel brands – Steigenberger Hotels and Resorts, Jaz in the City and IntercityHotel – of which over 25 are at the development stage.
