Japan’s Okura Hotel expands into Thailand

Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co., the group behind the recently re-opened Okura Hotel in Tokyo, is expanding into Thailand.

The Hotel Verve Bangkok will be rebranded as Hotel JAL City Bangkok, opening in the second quarter of 2020.

Hotel JAL City Bangkok is situated adjacent to Hotel Nikko Bangkok, which was opened in January this year.

Both are also close to the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre and Queen Sirikit National Convention Center, as well as multinational restaurants, bars, community-type malls and international hospitals.

Marcel P. van Aelst, CEO, Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co., Ltd., commented: “We are delighted to be able to introduce the Hotel JAL City brand outside Japan for the first time, and are hoping it will help bring broader recognition of the Okura Nikko Hotel brand in Thailand. We aim to provide services that take advantage of the convenient location of the new hotel, which is situated adjacent to Hotel Nikko Bangkok.”
