International luxury hotel chain, Oakwood Suites Bangkok is set to open by the end of 2019, while Oakwood Suites Yokohama is also poised to open in mid-2020.
Oakwood Suites Bangkok is strategically located along Sukhumvit Soi 24 within the popular Phrom Phong district.
Just a four-minute walk to the BTS Skytrain Station, the property is in close proximity to a diverse range of restaurants and malls as well as Bangkok’s Central Business District.
Offering some 232 well-appointed studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, Oakwood Suites Bangkok will redefine the jetsetting lifestyle of savvy travellers on short trips and extended stays.
In the meantime, after 12 successful properties in Japan, Oakwood Suites Yokohama marks the brand’s expansion into Japan’s second-largest city.
With a collection of 175 elegant apartments occupying levels 46 to 51 of The Tower Kitanaka, the largest and tallest residential building in Yokohama, guests will find Oakwood Suites Yokohama’s locale highly favourable.
“Oakwood Suites offers residential comfort for well-heeled global citizens who desire unparelled service delivered in an unobtrusive manner.
“By expanding into Bangkok and Yokohama, we are greatly increasing Oakwood Suites’ footprint and bringing a new type of contemporary luxury to guests and travellers alike in both markets,” said Dean Schreiber, interim chief executive officer of Oakwood and managing director of Oakwood Asia Pacific.
“Mapletree is pleased to expand our lodging footprint in Japan. Oakwood Suites Yokohama will be our second Mapletree-owned serviced apartment in Japan, following Oakwood Apartments Azabudai, Tokyo.
“As part of our business strategy, Mapletree will continue to pursue opportunities to develop and acquire assets and bring the Oakwood brand to global markets,” said Chua Tiow Chye, deputy group chief executive officer of Mapletree.
Oakwood Suites Yokohama will offer the elevated convenience of direct access to the Bashamichi Train Station and a plethora of shops and dining options within its retail and cultural zone.
Guests will be able to enjoy a waterfront residential lifestyle, as the tower sits right next to Yokohama Bay in the popular Minato Mirai area and a stone’s throw away from Yamashita Park, famed for its waterfront views of the Port of Yokohama.
A half-hour train ride from Tokyo, Oakwood Suites Yokohama is set to be a highly anticipated accommodation option upon opening, ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.
Conceived as a sanctuary for sophisticated travellers, Oakwood Suites offers exclusive residences for jetsetters and senior executives with an emphasis on prime locations within Asia Pacific’s most central commercial districts.
