Citadines Bangkok Sukhumvit 11
SPOTLIGHT...........................................................................................................................

The Ascott Group (Ascott) opened another three new Citadines serviced residences in Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Soi 8, 11 and 23, joining the Group’s first Citadines in Bangkok at Soi 16. The opening of these properties strengthens Ascott’s leadership position as the largest international serviced residence operator in Thailand with a total portfolio of over 1,700 units across nine properties.

All four Citadines are strategically located within the Sukhumvit area, surrounded by retail, food & beverage, shopping and entertainment outlets, hospitals, international schools, embassies and office buildings. They are also close to two skytrain stations - Asok and Nana.

Ascott’s other properties in Thailand are Ascott Bangkok Sathorn, Somerset Lake Point, Bangkok and Somerset Park Suanplu, Bangkok. The Group will be opening another two new properties in Bangkok – Somerset Sukhumvit Thonglor and Somerset Amar Garden in 2009.
