Akaryn Hotel Group, the pioneering Thai hospitality company with an appealing collection of luxury hotels and resorts around the Kingdom, has announced the appointment of Swiss native Thomas Singenberger as Hotel Manager at akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok, which is set to open in the first quarter of 2018.

Two of Bangkok's acclaimed high-end shopping malls – The Emporium and The EmQuartier – are within walking distance of the hotel, as are two of the city's most attractive public parks, one of which is Benjasiri Park, opened to commemorate Queen Sirikit's 60th birthday with jogging, cycling tracks and a boating lake.

The hotel is the closest boutique luxury accommodation on Soi 20 to Sukhumvit Road, which is often referred to as Bangkok's cosmopolitan artery, and the chosen address for a vast choice of world class restaurants, stylish cocktail bars, sophisticated spas and independent galleries, including Adler Subhashok Gallery, which is the Bangkok version of its Parisian counterpart and hosts exhibitions by big name international and Thai contemporary artists.

Bringing understated luxury and a new sense of style to Bangkok's most vibrant tourism zone, akyraSukhumvit Bangkok will present guests with an artistic aesthetic designed to inspire a lifestyle as much as a stay. The hotel will offer casual gourmet dining experiences whilst making the most of its location with a sophisticated rooftop pool bar serving signature signature craft beers, snacks and barbecue dishes overlooking the metropolitan skyline.

"As a new concept luxury urban retreat, akyra Sukhumvit Bangkok is all about creating an intimate atmosphere in the heart of one of Asia's most iconic cities," explains Thomas.
