Honored for Design Excellence

(Bangkok – June 7, 2013): Best Western International’s flagship hotel in Bangkok, BEST WESTERN PREMIER Sukhumvit, has received two major awards honoring excellence of its interior design.


The luxury hotel, which is located in the very heart of Bangkok’s Sukhumvit business district, has been bestowed with the titles of ‘Best Hotel Interior: Thailand’ and ‘Best Hotel Interior: Asia Pacific’ at the prestigious Asia Pacific Hotel Awards.


Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President International Operations – Asia & the Middle East, said the awards were a testament to the impact the company is making on the Asia Pacific hotel scene, not only in terms of portfolio growth, but also with the quality of the Best Western product.

“Best Western International puts a lot of thought, care and attention into our hotels, and I’m absolutely delighted that this is finally being recognized by the industry,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western International’s Vice President International Operations – Asia & the Middle East.

“BEST WESTERN PREMIER Sukhumvit is part of a new era of Best Western hotels. Not only does it form part of our luxury BEST WESTERN PREMIER brand, which offers an experience on a par with any top hotel in the world, but the design – as recognized by these awards – is sleek, bold and innovative.

“I would like to thank the hotel’s owners and designers, ASC Interiors Co. Ltd., for sharing our vision, and creating a truly world-class hotel product in the center of this wonderful city,” Mr. de Souza added.

Confident and contemporary, with smooth lines and sharp edges, the BEST WESTERN PREMIER Sukhumvit is a truly 21st Century hotel. Stark, neutral tones are brought to life with subtle splashes of color, while soft-fabrics juxtapose with hard wooden and marble finishes to create an ambience conducive to relaxation.
Held annually and sponsored by Virgin Atlantic, the International Hotel Awards employs a team of expert panelists to select only the very best from the hospitality industry.

There are now more than 40 BEST WESTERN PREMIER hotels in operation or under development in Asia and the Middle East.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
