Best Western International touches down at Dhaka Airport
Bangkok, November 15, 2013

BEST Western International has inked an agreement with Maple Leaf Hotel & Resorts to manage a new Best Western Plus hotel beside the Dhaka airport when it opens in 2Q2014.


Located adjacent to Bangladesh’s main international gateway of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, the 56-room property is Best Western’s second hotel in Dhaka after the 51-room Best Western La Vinci Hotel.


Currently under construction, the hotel will feature an all-day restaurant serving local and international dishes, a rooftop barbecue outlet, a bar, a fitness centre, a sauna, a steam room and spa.


Free Wi-Fi will also be available in guestrooms.


Glenn de Souza, vice president of international operations for Asia and the Middle East, said the new hotel is perfectly positioned to cater for Bangladesh’s rising number of inbound and outbound travellers.


“With a population of more than 160 million people – the eighth largest in the world - and a fast-growing manufacturing industry, Bangladesh is becoming an increasingly important regional and global player,” Mr. de Souza said.


Best Western expects to expand further across Bangladesh in future, with plans for at least three more hotels in the coastal destination of Cox’s Bazar.
