Oakwood Bangna Bangkok switches focus to short stays
Bangkok, July 12, 2011

OAKWOOD Residence Garden Towers Bangna Bangkok has revamped its accommodation offerings and price structure to attract short-term stays.


The property’s general manager, Trevor MacDonald, said the property’s 66 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments had been transformed into 117 studio and one-bedroom units. The property is still equipped with serviced residence amenities.


He added: “As we have noticed a larger-than-expected demand from our short-stay clients, we have adjusted our studio rates to range from 2,700 baht (US$88) per night, which is comparable to that of many hotels in Bangkok.”


The original rates ranged from 3,800 baht a night for a studio deluxe apartment, to 110,000 baht a night for a three-bedroom unit.


The property is also looking to partner with travel agents, tour operators, airlines and OTAs to promote its packages and value-added offerings for short-stay guests, especially transit passengers and aircrew.
