Shama for 5-star serviced residence in Bangkok

HONG KONG: Shama, a Hong Kong-based serviced residence operator has been appointed to manage an upcoming five-star luxury serviced residence in Bangkok to be named Shama Bangkok.

This will be Shama’s first management agreement outside Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China, where they already have a presence, according to Colliers International, the exclusive advisor for the project.

Shama Bangkok is scheduled to be unveiled early next year. The 19-storey property sits in the heart of Sukhumvit, Bangkok’s premier location for business travellers and tourists. It is near the BTS Skytrain and the Metro Underground system and is within 200m of Bangkok’s main north to south expressway. 

The property is around 30 to 40 minutes’ driving time from both Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Don Muang Airport, said Colliers International.

On completion, Shama Bangkok will offer 90 residences of various sizes:  20 one-bedroom units of about 60 square metres (sq m); 52 two-bedroom units of 110 sq m; 14 three-bedroom units of 140 to 145 sq m each and four three-bedroom units of 160 sq m. Residents would also have access to amenities such as a lobby restaurant, a fitness centre, a swimming pool and meeting facilities.

“We were very pleased to have had this opportunity to work with the property owner in the selection and appointment of Shama, and are pleased to have been able to introduce Shama as the operator to their first serviced residence in South East Asia,” said R Keith Humphreys, Director of Hotels & Leisure, Asia, Colliers International.

“It’s an important milestone in Shama’s regional growth. Now that the management agreement has been signed, Shama will commence work immediately and provide technical services and pre-opening services in order to have the property open by early 2010,” he added.
