The Ascott Limited Thailand Reaches 5000-Unit Milestone with Two New Additions to Its Thailand Portfolio

THE ASCOTT LIMITED THAILAND REACHES 5000-UNIT MILESTONE WITH TWO NEW ADDITIONS TO ITS THAILAND PORTFOLIO – SOMERSET RIVERSIDE BANGKOK AND LYF RIVERSIDE BANGKOK

The Ascott Limited, CapitaLand’s wholly-owned serviced residence business unit, is proud to announce the signing of Somerset Riverside Bangkok and lyf Riverside Bangkok, in partnership with Raimon Land PLC (RML), Thailand’s leader in luxury real estate development, to breach the 5000-unit inventory and 25-property milestones as part of its strategic expansion plan. Located by the banks of the Chao Phraya River and boasting its own boat pier, both properties will have direct access to the famous river’s plethora of cafes, bars and restaurants offerings such as Asiatique, Lhong 1919, The Jam Factory, IconSiam, and at the same time enjoy easy connection to the Taksin Boat Pier, BTS Skytrain, The Gold Line and other land transport systems to reach central Bangkok as well as its world class financial, entertainment and arts districts.

Somerset Riverside Bangkok features 52 stunning guestrooms with intelligently designed living spaces, state-of-the-art in-room amenities and floor-to-ceiling windows to enhance the spectacular views of the river and the Bangkok skyline, all nestled between the 23rd to 27th floors of the award-winning condominium, The River. 

Lyf Riverside Bangkok will offer 71 innovatively designed guestrooms as well as multi-functional social spaces such as ‘Connect’ co-working and lounge zone, a ‘Bond’ social kitchen, a ‘Wash & Hang’ laundromat, an outdoor terrace and ‘Burn’, a semi-outdoor fitness area.  The co-living apartments are equipped with comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms and high-speed complimentary WiFi, all designed for guests to experience more than just shared living, with access to a myriad of community activities, authentic local experiences, as well as exclusive perks and networking opportunities.

Besides its own facilities, guests from both properties will be able to access the outstanding amenities at The River, including three infinity lap pools, a fully equipped fitness centre and two multi-purpose courts.

Mr. Brian Tan, Country General Manager for Ascott in Thailand & Laos, commented: “We are thrilled to introduce our Somerset and lyf brands to the Chao Phraya River.  We look forward to injecting Ascott’s unique brand of hospitality and elevate our guests’ experience with the service we are renowned for. With the addition of these two new properties, Ascott will have 25 serviced residences and hotels in Thailand with a combined inventory of 5,011 units.  We look forward to grow our footprint further in this dynamic country, and to help contribute to its recovery from the current downturn.”
