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.

They are essentially changing from a serviced apartment to a hotel and unless they have a hotel operating license, the legality of what they are doing is questionable.

You are quite correct Sunchai. Oakwood would not move on this concept unless it had the correct certification, which indeed it has.
