New Thai Hospitality Brand Haven’t Met Silom Opens
Bangkok (Thailand) – November 24, 2017 (travelindex.com) – The hip new technology driven brand offers comfortable yet practical city stays with integrated technology that connects guests with each other and city experiences with complimentary use of 4G connected, interactive in-room smart tablets loaded with a custom hotel app. The tablet has a dedicated chat room for guests to meet up in, chat with each other, and plan activities and trips around the Thai capital. It also features a local area map, a hotel directory, restaurant and room service menus, as well as music streaming via JOOX.
Haven’t Met Silom features 70 smart, stylish rooms in two categories spread through 9 floors. The Awesome (20sqm) room and Sensational (24sqm) room offer comfort and convenience with practical layouts enhanced by quality furnishings and fittings. Room rates start from THB 2500.
Cloud 9 Restaurant offers guests a daily breakfast buffet, complemented by a la carte Asian and International dishes, with generous portions served at affordable prices. There is also a 24-hour lounge with complimentary soft drinks and snacks. Cloud 9 Casual Rooftop is the hotel’s stylish al fresco pool bar with quality drinks, creative Thai fusion food and stunning cityscape views Mr. Chayaphon Hunrungroj, Chairman of Sincere Capital Land said, “We invested THB120 million in this new project to target millennial travellers from Asia and around the world. Thailand has a lot of new hotels launching, but not many of them target the real needs of millennial travellers. As a new Thai brand we aim to offer affordable, experience- led stays. Our target occupancy is 80% in the first year and we expect this to reach 90% in the second year.”
Mr. Patrick Pratummanee, Executive Director explains the inspiration behind the Haven’t Met concept. “Today’s young, affluent travellers are looking for practical comfort in convenient location. They need a base to explore the city and they want to know the best things to see, to do, and what’s new. They also want to share their travel experience with their social network and make new friends.”
Haven’t Met Silom offers these entire benefits and the hotel app lets them plan their trip together before they check in, share experiences during the stay and upload memories after their trip. The app gives them the inside track on what Bangkok has to offer, and they can then experience the city with a choice of specially selected travel experiences that can be booked directly on the tablet.
“The experiences are what really connect guests to Bangkok so we have selected the best and partnered with a range of operators to offer a wide range of memorable excursions and adventures. The experiences are all carefully chosen so travellers can really get under the skin of the city,” adds Mr. Pratummanee
Haven’t Met Experiences include everything from sampling local street food to the finest gourmet dining. Guests can choose to visit a pop-up market, or explore the city’s sophisticated retail malls. They can relax with a sublime spa treatment to sooth their muscles after a session of Muay Thai boxing training, then head out on a party night to the city’s coolest rooftop bars.
“In a city as varied as Bangkok the key to a memorable stay is being able to choose the experiences you will enjoy the most” adds Mr. Pratummanee. “Exploring local and international attractions, discovering the history and traditions of the city, or diving into contemporary culture. That is what travel is all about. Haven’t Met Silom introduces the many faces of Bangkok,” he adds.
The company expects to break even in five years and the team at Haven’t Met Hotels is currently exploring new destinations in Thailand to launch owned and managed hotel properties in downtown, riverfront locations in Bangkok and other cities, as well as resort destinations like Phuket.
