Movenpick Hotels & Resorts expands its portfolio with the opening of Movenpick Suriwongse Hotel Chiang Mai early this month.

Conveniently located in one of the city’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, the hotel overlooks the sprawling Night Bazaar district and is a short walking distance to many cultural attractions such as Chiang Mai Old City Wall and Tha Pae Gate. The Ping riverside and the Sunday Walking Street are just 10 minutes away on foot.

The hotel offers 266 guestrooms in seven different types from Classic, Superior, Deluxe, Premier, Junior Suite, Suites, and Family Suites. For diners, the hotel serves Thai and international cuisines at its all-day dining venue, Feung Fah Restaurant, which is designed with wooden elements to emulate the style of a local food market.

Le Bistrot is a themed Italian-Thai fusion eatery, featuring a terrace with views of the bustling Night Bazaar. For a refreshing drink, the hotel's Lobby Bar and Rooftop Pool Bar both offer tempting selections, whilst the Sweet House serves freshly brewed coffee and home-made bakery items.

Featuring two multifunctional venues including a 400-delegate capacity ballroom, the hotel can cater to a wide range of events, from intimate cocktail receptions to conferences or large-scale celebrations.

“The opening of Movenpick Suriwongse Hotel Chiang Mai bolsters our cluster strategy in Thailand where we aim to operate hotels and resorts in leading cities and holiday destinations across the country. It also strengthens our presence in Southeast Asia where our development pipeline continues to grow at pace,” said Olivier Chavy, president and CEO, Movenpick Hotels & Resorts.

“The new property in Chiang Mai will capitalise on the northern Thailand city’s growing popularity with tourists looking to experience its culture, nature, history and gastronomy,” added Vinai Chitaratsanee, General Manager, Movenpick Suriwongse Hotel Chiang Mai.

“Chiang Mai appeals to visitors from all over the world who come to discover its unique blend of old and new, rural and urban and our hotel is well positioned to help them discover the most splendid city of cultures.”
