With more than 4,500 properties across 100 countries, the BWH Hotel Group – comprising the WorldHotels Collection, Best Western Hotels & Resorts and SureStay Hotel Group – has been offering quality and value to its customers for 75 years. That’s something that Best Western Rewards’ 51 million and counting members already know and love.
Under the Best Western Hotels & Resorts portfolio, guests will discover the ever-growing range of properties and destinations including the Best Western Premier, BW Premier Collection and BW Signature Collection brands. In Asia, the number of new hotels is growing by leaps and bounds, with a host of openings by the sparkling sea in the Philippines to the lush mountains of Pakistan.
Urban, modern and ever exciting
The BWH Hotel Group is gearing up to open new doors in much-loved destinations of Asia. Best Western Nada Don Mueang Airport Hotel, which opened for business in August, offers 235 rooms and suites as well as a ballroom and meeting facilities just 15 minutes away from the Thai capital’s second busiest airport. The modern midscale hotel is the eighth BWH property serving Bangkok.
The 410-key Best Western Plus Carapace Hotel Khao Tao, set to open in December 2022, will mark BWH Hotel Group’s first foray into the popular Thai beach resort town of Hua Hin.
Come December, Best Western Chatuchak will add 192 rooms and Best Western Ratchada a further 120 rooms to the Best Western family in Bangkok, bringing BWH brands to vibrant parts of the capital city that are already pulsating with markets, offices, shopping and restaurants.
But these are not the only openings in Thailand this year. Best Western Plus Carapace Hotel Khao Tao, a 410-key lagoon pool property, will mark BWH Hotel Group’s first foray into the popular beach resort town of Hua Hin this year-end. Located just two and a half hours south of Bangkok, the hotel will offer rooms with direct pool access, a fitness centre and multiple F&B outlets set around a series of freeform lagoon pools.
Elsewhere in the region, both the 74-room SureStay Studio by Best Western Clarkview and the 110-room Best Western Plus Metro Clark will celebrate their openings in Clark, Philippines in November and December respectively. Clark itself is packed with entertainment options and is a natural gateway adjacent to both the sprawling Metro Manila and the majestic Mount Pinatubo. The addition of BWH properties will also appeal to travellers looking for great value in an exciting, convenient location.
Going big on Premium
