Minor Hotels introduces NH Hotels & Resorts brand to Bangkok

NH Bangkok Sukhumvit Boulevard, the first NH hotel in Bangkok and second in Thailand, marks Minor Hotels’ expansion of the NH brand beyond Europe and the Americas.

Minor Hotels is set to debut its NH Hotels & Resorts brand in Bangkok with the NH Bangkok Sukhumvit Boulevard, the second NH property in Thailand. This move marks a significant step in Minor Hotels’ strategy to expand the NH brand beyond Europe and the Americas.

Global hospitality group Minor Hotels has signed a management agreement with Boulevard Hotel Company Limited for the centrally located property in Bangkok. The NH Bangkok Sukhumvit Boulevard will open in Q4 this year after rebranding and enhancements to incorporate NH’s brand touches.

Situated in Bangkok’s bustling commercial and shopping district, just off Sukhumvit Road, the 309-key hotel offers unparalleled convenience. It is located only 200 meters from the BTS SkyTrain public transportation system, making it easy for guests to explore the city’s attractions, shopping centers, and restaurants. The renowned Bumrungrad International Hospital is within walking distance, and Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) is just a 30-minute drive away.

Currently operating as the Boulevard Hotel Bangkok, the property has recently undergone extensive renovations, including updates to guest rooms, the lobby, restaurant, and pool areas. The newly designed rooms feature contemporary designs in neutral earth tones with modern fixtures, catering to both leisure and business guests. Amenities include an all-day dining restaurant, a lobby bar, meeting facilities, a fitness center, and a large outdoor swimming pool.

“We are delighted to partner with Boulevard Hotel Company Limited to debut our upscale NH brand in Bangkok,” said Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels and Group CEO of Minor International. “NH will be the third brand we introduce to Bangkok, joining Anantara and Avani, providing visitors to the world’s most visited city with another way to stay with Minor Hotels.”

Kirin Narula, Chairman of Boulevard Hotel Company Limited, expressed pride in partnering with Minor Hotels on the inaugural NH property in Bangkok. “Minor Hotels has an impressive track record of success in Thailand, and we look forward to collaborating to deliver excellent guest experiences at the NH Bangkok Sukhumvit Boulevard.”

NH Hotels & Resorts, founded in Spain in 1978, is one of Minor Hotels’ eight brands. With over 230 NH properties globally, predominantly in Europe and the Americas, the brand’s introduction to Asia is a strategic move. The NH Bangkok Sukhumvit Boulevard follows the NH Boat Lagoon Phuket Resort, which opened in 2022, and NH Zhengzhou Jinshui in China in 2023.

This expansion reinforces Minor Hotels’ commitment to growing its portfolio and enhancing its global presence, providing high-quality hospitality experiences to guests worldwide.
