Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has opened its fourth property in Thailand, unveiling Mövenpick Resort Khao Yai. Located less than a three-hour drive from Bangkok on the fringes of the Khao Yai National Park, the 112-room resort offers an indulgent castle-style experience surrounded by a mountainous landscape.
“Home to a rich National Park, Khao Yai has long been a favoured getaway for Bangkok residents and domestic travellers seeking an escape into nature. With the opening of our first hotel here, we are looking forward to showcasing the 70-year culinary legacy of the Mövenpick brand, and delivering a guest experience that is authentic and memorable, through a sustainable and responsible approach,” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer of Accor, Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.
The picturesque landscape is complemented by the hotel’s unique Tuscan architecture and spacious rooms are decorated in the Renaissance and Modern Baroque styles. The resort features 62 guestrooms, ranging from a 45-square-metre Deluxe Room to the grand three-bedroom Penthouse as well as 50 villas, many with garden and pool views reminiscent of Italy, perfect for friends and families travelling together.
The hotel offers an all-day dining experience at Flavours of Khao Yai with a choice of indoor and alfresco seating where diners can enjoy an unobstructed mountain view alongside a range of delectable local and international cuisine.
For a relaxing dining experience drawing on the bucolic charms of the natural surroundings, Castleton Café is styled as a green café and embodies the tranquil atmosphere of the resort. Guests can enjoy afternoon tea in the mountains and a variety of refreshments including a farm-to-table organic salad with fresh produce from the onsite organic vegetable farm.
Providing optimal wellness with health-recovery programs, Panacee Wellness Khao Yai offers guests the opportunity to optimise their strength, energy, and holistic wellness with a range of spa treatments to relieve stress inside-out, delivered by the spa’s wellness experts. Guest can choose from a selection of holistic health check-ups, vitality (anti-ageing) therapies, hair and facial detox treatments.
Leisure facilities include a swimming pool and an 18-hole golf course with preferential rates for in-house guests.
In addition to the lush Khao Yai National Park – the country’s oldest, and part of the UNESCO World Heritage-protected forest complex – the area is home to many points of interest, including Chokchai Farm, Jim Thompson Farm, GranMonte Vineyard and Winery, PB Valley Khao Yai Winery, and Heaw Narok Waterfall.
