Best Western goes to Buriram


BEST Western International (BWI) is to open the Best Western Royal Hotel in Buriram, a North-Eastern province of Thailand.

Glenn de Souza, BWI’s vice president International Operations – Asia & the Middle East, says: “With the onset of the Asean Economic Community (AEC) in 2015, eastern Thailand sits at the crossroads of one of the world’s biggest growth zones. Located close to the border with Cambodia and on the key route between Bangkok, Laos and Vietnam, Buriram is at the heart of Asean (The Association of Southeast Asian Nations). The relaxing of visa policies, along with the development of the Asian Highway and Trans-Asian Railway networks, means both business and leisure travellers will soon be able to travel across the ASEAN region faster, and in greater numbers.”

The Best Western Royal Hotel in Buriram will offer 81 contemporary rooms and suites, a restaurant serving both Asian and international cuisine, an internet corner and an outdoor swimming pool. For business travellers, the hotel’s location, international amenities and high level of connectivity make it a suitable option. For leisure travellers, Buriram is the gateway to a wealth of attractions, including the Angkor-style temples of Phanom Rung Historical Park.

The new hotel will become BWI’s 17th hotel in Thailand when it opens later this year, while Buriram will become its ninth destination in the Kingdom. BWI is also present in Bangkok, Hua Hin, Pattaya, Phuket, Khao Lak, Koh Phangan, Koh Samui and Krabi.
