One of the fastest growing markets of Southeast Asia, Thailand, hosted an impressive 29 million visitors during the year of 2015. Now Hilton Worldwide plans to plant roots in the growing economy. Hilton plans on opening five hotels and offer an experience unlike any other found currently. Three of these Hilton hotels will open in Bangkok, one in Phuket, and the last one in Pattaya. It’s hard to imagine Hilton, currently operating 600 properties in the world, failing to be successful in the endeavor.
What’s going to make these hotels stand out from the current hotels in Thailand, will be the excellent guest focused experience that Hilton Hotels are known for. Hilton plans on hiring over 3,000 employees in Thailand. These employees will go through rigorous training and only the best will be working, when the hotels open their doors. Doors open of the first hotel, the 300 room Hilton Phuket Patong in 2018.
Apart from these new developments, Hilton Worldwide is planning to open a new luxury hotel under the Waldorf Astoria brand, which will be the first of its kind in Bangkok. Located on Ratchadamri Road in the heart of the business district, the highly anticipated 170-key upscale hotel is scheduled to open early next year under a management contract with Magnolia Finest Corp, he said.
