Best Western had a ground-breaking ceremony to its first hotel at Bangkok under its Vib lifestyle brand. The establishment is expected to open on late 2017 or early 2018.
The hotel company is continuing to mark its ever growing presence in Thailand by developing another hotel in Bangkok. The Vib Bangkok is strategically located close to Sanam Pao BTS skytrain station.
Aimed toward young travelers, Vib, which is short for vibrant, offers modern and chic amenities that are appealing to its target consumers. This includes free Wi-fi, enormous common areas, and food stalls that are perfect for on-the-go. Vib Bangkok Sanampao will also offer gaming pods and smart TVs in guest rooms, according to Travel Weekly.
Vib Bangkok is under the development of Matasiri Co., which is the company that also owned the Best Western Plus Wanda Grand Hotel in Bangkok that opened in 2016, according to Travel Daily Media.
"With its ultra-modern design, state-of-the-art amenities and bright, vibrant social spaces, Vib Bangkok Sanampao will resonate with Asia's new generation of travellers. We look forward to introducing this exciting new concept to Thailand in late 2017," said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts' Managing Director of International Operations in Asia.
Another hotel that will be built in Bangkok under the Vib brand is also underway, making it the second Vib Hotel in the city. The hotel is under development and is expected to open on 2019.
The Vib Sathorn Hotel is strategically located close to the Saphan Taksin BTS skytrain station and Robinson Bangrak shopping mall. It will offer 180 rooms and will boasts the same amenities that distinguish the Vib brand.
It will offer spacious lobbies for the guests to relax in. Like Vib Bangkok, the public space will be tech-centered where guests can enjoy interactive technology service, according to their website.
