The newly-built property, its second in the Thai capital, features 158 serviced apartments and offers long-stay guests a choice of fully furnished studios and one- and two- bedroom apartments in Bangkok’s vibrant Ekkamai neighbourhood, an area known for hip cafés, fine restaurants and boutique shopping options.
Built by award-winning Thai developer Nusasiri Plc., Mövenpick Residences Ekkamai Bangkok is the global hotel group’s second offering in Thailand’s gateway city, and stands as a flagship for the brand’s contemporary serviced apartment concept in Asia.
Andrew Langdon, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Global Chief Development Officer and Senior Vice President Asia, said: “We are delighted to partner with such a well established name in Thai real estate as we extend Mövenpick’s reach beyond hotels and resorts into the fast growing serviced apartment sector.

Units range in size from 32 sqm to 75 sqm with bright, contemporary décor and a choice of sweeping city views through floor-to-ceiling windows. All the residences come fully fitted, including kitchen equipment, also feature flat screen TVs offering numerous cable channels in multiple languages and complimentary WiFi.
