NOVOTEL Bangkok IMPACT has been chalking up good business since its February soft opening, recording just below 30 per cent occupancy in the first month of operations, and more than 30 per cent last month.
The hotel’s general manager, David Baldwin, said that while business has been slow this month due to the Thai Songkran holiday, occupancy was starting to pick up again, and he expected it to soar over the next couple of months.
He added that about 80 per cent of the hotel’s business originates from events at the adjoining IMPACT Muang Thong Thani MICE complex, with the remaining coming from nearby corporate and government agencies.
The 10-storey, 380-room Novotel Bangkok IMPACT is scheduled to open its spa, indoor swimming pool, fitness centre and an Italian restaurant next month, and a rooftop wine bar in the last quarter.
IMPACT Muang Thong Thani, located in greater Bangkok, hosted more than 800 events last year.
