THAILAND’s Onyx Hospitality Group is set to enter the Laotian market with the signing of three properties by developers Tang Charoen Group.
All three hotels will come under Onyx’s Amari brand. The first will open in Vang Vieng in 2017 while the other two properties in Vientiane and Pakse are both scheduled to open in 2020.
Amari’s signature Amaya Food Gallery, Breeze Spa and creative meeting venues will be featured in each property.
Commenting on the project, Peter Henley, president and CEO of Onyx, said: “Laos is emerging as one of South-east Asia’s fastest growing destinations, with the ongoing introduction of new flight routes and tourism infrastructure enhancements. We are excited to enter this market with not one but three Amari properties as part of our continuing regional expansion plans.”
Onyx currently has a portfolio of 63 properties with 22 under construction. There are presently 14 properties operating under the Amari brand and another eight are under development, including the three upcoming in Laos.
