2018 New Thai Hotels Master List

New Hotels in Thailand 2018

All new hotels and resorts opening in 2018

Presenting the sixth annual Master List of new hotels and resorts in Thailand. This is a comprehensive list of 4 and 5 star properties scheduled to open in Thailand in 2018 and also in the pipeline at various stages of development all the way through to 2020

You can find the 2017 New Thai Hotels Master List here

As always please keep in mind that until the doors on each property actually open, all dates are tentative. The further in the future a property is projected to open, the more likely it is that those dates will change- almost always later in the future.

Sign up to the newsletter to keep up to date on the latest openings and news on luxury hotels and resorts in Thailand. I typically send this newsletter out 4 times a year.

If you are associated with a new property, or know of one and would like it added to the master list please contact me here, or let me know through Twitter
