(15/05/23) Yotel has signed a deal to open its first hotel in the Kingdom of Thailand.
The new-build Yotel Bangkok is scheduled to open in 2025 as part of the cutting-edge Cloud 11, a 250,000 sqm mixed-use development opposite True Digital Park that will feature one of Thailand’s largest rooftop parks.
Designed by internationally acclaimed Snøhetta in collaboration with A49 Architects for Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC), a leading Thai real estate developer, Cloud 11 aims to become a hub for creators in four key sectors: gaming, music and podcast, film and animation, and digital.
Slated to open in 2025, Yotel Bangkok will be located within Cloud 11, one of Asia’s largest content creator hubs with a project value of over US$1.2 billion
“We believe that the power of creativity arises from an enabling environment. Therefore, Cloud 11 is committed to empowering creators by creating a comprehensive ecosystem that connects local creators to global stakeholders,” said Khun Onza Janyaprasert, Project Director of Cloud 11. “The opening of Yotel Bangkok at Cloud 11 will be another significant piece that complements our ecosystem. With its modern and sustainable smart design and creative use of technology, Yotel Bangkok will be a hospitality venue that truly caters to the multifaceted lifestyle of creators. It will not only provide innovative and convenient service amenities, enabling guests to have freedom and flexibility, but it will also foster connectivity among people and promote efficient work. The unique experience offered by Yotel Bangkok will undoubtedly fuel boundless creativity.”
Featuring 250 rooms, the hotel will showcase Yotel’s latest features including the brand’s signature robotic concierge, motorised SmartBeds, and other fully integrated technologies for which Yotel is known.
Guests will have access to the brand’s multi-functional dining and co-working space, a 24-hour fitness centre, a Grab + Go snack station, two meeting hubs that can be used to network and relax, as well as a sky bar on the 22nd floor overlooking Bang Krachao.
Directly connected to the BTS SkyTrain via a 300-meter skywalk, guests of Yotel Bangkok will have swift and direct access to the city’s coolest districts including Thong Lo, Ekkamai and Asoke, as well as the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre located in Bang Na.
Guests will also be within walking distance of nearby retail and dining options, multi-purpose event halls, and an educational institute.
“At Yotel we constantly strive to immerse ourselves within the world’s smartest destinations,” said Hubert Viriot, CEO of Yotel. “Cloud 11 is going to be a hub for tech innovation and digital learning, making it the perfect location for our first hotel in Thailand and for our Generation Go guests. We’re thrilled to be the chosen brand for the development as our values are perfectly aligned with MQDC’s vision and mission for Cloud 11. Additionally, we’re expecting to see major demand for hotel rooms, as the area becomes an interconnected community for government, private agencies, universities, start-ups, and the world’s leading technology companies.”
The signing of Yotel Bangkok follows the signing of a Yotel in Tokyo, Japan (opening late 2024) and expands the current portfolio in the region which also includes the Yotel Singapore Orchard Road and Yotelair Singapore Changi.
