unnamed (2) In line with a healthy outlook for global travel announced in the ITB World Travel Trends Report, Thailand-based ONYX Hospitality Group will be at ITB Berlin this week to meet with travel industry partners, highlight properties in key locations and share new and upcoming additions to its portfolio of hotels, resorts and serviced residences across the Asia-Pacific region.

The rapidly expanding hotel company is celebrating an exciting period of development across its various brands, and marking its entry into key new markets including the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. Over the last 12 months, ONYX welcomed five new additions to its regional portfolio of properties, headlined by Amari Havodda Maldives which opened on 15 January 2016. A secluded hideaway set on its own private island on the pristine Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll, the resort is home to one of the largest infinity pools in the Maldives. Its 120 guest villas are located either along the beach or over the waters of the island’s spectacular house reef.

Other openings over the past year include OZO Kandy Sri Lanka, a smart and fresh new hotel located minutes from the Kandy town centre with views of the lake and surrounding landmarks, Chiva Residence Bangkok located in the upscale Soonvijai district of the Thai capital, and Nova Express Pattaya located on Pattaya Third Road.

In 2015, ONYX also announced the upcoming opening of new properties in locations such as Sri Lanka, India, Vietnam, Malaysia and China.

Business Update:
Europe continues to be an important source market for ONYX, representing the second largest share of visitors to all ONYX properties in 2015. Visitors from Germany have increased significantly by 23% in 2015 compared to the year before, making Germany as the second largest European market for the company after the United Kingdom.

Across the Group’s portfolio of hotels, increases have been seen for arrivals from European markets such as Austria, Denmark, France and Germany.
