The city's gastronomy will be keenly promoted by Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, says Jee Hoong Tan, Director of Sales & Marketing in an interview with Irene Susan Eapen.

Located in the heart of Bangkok, Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, the city’s only urban city resort has been closely working with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to promote the city’s shopping and gastronomical experiences.

“Our hotel offers breathtaking views of the lush garden and the free-form swimming pool. The uniqueness of our property is
the Cabana Room and Duplex Cabana, offering direct pool access from a private terrace,” said Jee
Hoong Tan, the hotel’s Director of Sales & Marketing while talking about the hotel’s guest trends and future plans.

“We have been working closely with TAT to promote Bangkok as a destination for shopping and gastronomy through Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, which is our signature modern-Thai restaurant and also by showcasing ourselves as a family getaway and a wedding
destination.”

“On an average, Indian travellers stay for two to three days at our property. We have had travellers who enjoyed savouring every moment of their stay in our hotel regardless of whether they were on business trip or for leisure.“

The hotel organizes offsite tours and team outings. In addition to the classic cultural sightseeing tours, it has designed the ‘Bangkok by Food’ programme which offers private tours organized by its concierge to enable food lovers to relish the city's best local street food.

Expansion Plans

“In 2018, we are opening properties in Bali and Yangon; while new hotels in Busan, South Korea and Kuala Lumpur will open
in 2020. India has always been our targeted market and we are constantly looking for partners to work with,” he signs off.

Keeping the pulse on the Indian travel industry for over a decade!
