Cross Hotels & Resorts has scored a hotel management agreement with Kene Hotel Bangkok Co. for the riverfront Away Bangkok Riverside Kene, set for launch mid-December this year.
The 169-key lifestyle property is located just steps from the Chao Phraya River. It is surrounded by treelined roads and wooden houses along quiet canals. From their riverside base, guests can use the hotel’s private jetty to explore centuries-old temples, palaces and shrines, monuments and markets, craft cafes and chic restaurants, as well as one of Asia’s largest shopping malls, IconSiam.
Facilities onsite includes a centrepiece indoor swimming pool, four restaurants and bars, and a unique social and business venue.
