Moevenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok, the hospitality firm's third property in the city, is set to re-open in 2019
Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts has expanded its Thailand portfolio to nine properties Kingdom-wide after signing an agreement to rebrand and manage the renowned Nai Lert Park Hotel in Downtown Bangkok.

The iconic upscale urban resort strategically located on Wireless Road in the Central Business District, yet nestled in an oasis of lush landscaped gardens set back from Bangkok's bustling streets, will re-open under Moevenpick's management in early 2019 after a comprehensive refurbishment programme.

Offering 294 stylish guest rooms and a wide range of business and leisure facilities, it will be the hospitality firm's third property in the Thai capital, joining Moevenpick Hotel Sukhumvit 15 Bangkok and Moevenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok.

Close to major attractions, malls, embassies and corporate offices and within walking distance of Ploenchit BTS skytrain station and Phetchaburi MRT metro station, the property offers guests convenient access to the entire city.

"Opportunities to manage legendary hotels do not arise often, and we're delighted to bring Moevenpick's signature style to the Nai Lert Park Hotel, which has been a Bangkok landmark for more than three decades," commented Andrew Langdon, Chief Development Officer for Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts.

"We look forward to moving this captivating property into an exciting new era as we introduce a health-conscious generation of guests to Moevenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok and further provide world-class wellness facilities in association with the adjoining BDMS Wellness Clinic," he added.

Bangkok Dusit Medical Services Public Company Limited (BDMS) was established on 30th October 1969. Through business expansion, the Company was listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand on 2nd October 1991 and registered its conversion to public company limited in 1994.

BDMS is ranked in the top five private hospital groups globally in terms of revenue, one of the most prestigious hospital networks in the Asia-Pacific region with a total of 45 hospitals across the network that have been accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI). BDMS offers world-class medical care and treatment to both local and international patients, complemented by the latest medical technology.

Dr. Poramaporn Prasarttong-Osoth, COO of BDMS group, says, "We are excited to work with Moevenpick to introduce a Wellness Resort with world-class hospitality as well as specialised in-house wellness programmes that are designed for prevention and the achievement of a healthy lifestyle."

All rooms and suites will feature contemporary designs and high-tech amenities while resort facilities will include a large freeform outdoor swimming pool, fitness centre and wellness spa. The hotel's restaurant will serve all natural, organic Thai and international cuisine, the lobby lounge will offer all-day health-conscious refreshments and the pool bar will provide the perfect spot for informal gatherings.

Moevenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok will also become a preferred meetings and events destination with its ballroom and function rooms featuring natural light and direct garden access, able to cater to groups of all sizes, from intimate social occasions to large-scale corporate conferences, while the hotel's garden provides a romantic setting for al fresco events and weddings.

The Nai Lert Park Hotel originally opened in 1984 but closed its doors at the end of 2016 to undergo a complete refurbishment. When it opens next year, it will offer guests the high-quality international standards and facilities for which Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts is known.
