Truly “Value For All Occasions”

February 22, 2014 Headline News, Hotel Feature No Comments Email Email

Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn PoolBangkok-based hotel management company Absolute Hotel Services (AHS) are fast becoming known throughout the Asia Pacific region for their range of deluxe boutique U Hotels & Resorts which have won numerous travel awards from both the hospitality industry and public alike but what many do not realize is that AHS are also responsible for the management of the rapidly expanding Eastin Hotels & Residences.

From their first opening, the rebranding of the 280-room Empress Hotel in Bangkok to become the Eastin Hotel Makkasan Bangkok, the group has added to their portfolio with a number of brand new and rebranded properties. With the motto of “Value For All Occasions” Eastin’s pledge is to offer the very best in comfort, service and facilities at the most attractive prices. But offering guests the best possible deal hasn’t meant that Eastin have scrimped on taking care of their valued customers.

Eastin Easy Citizen AhmedabadEastin Hotel Grand Sathorn, the brand’s flagship property, is a deluxe class hotel offering 390 rooms and suites and is currently near the top of the Trip Advisor website table in Bangkok, being placed above a considerable number of well-known internationally branded luxury hotels.

Eastin Hotel Grand Sathorn is also unique in being one of the few properties in the metropolis with a direct link from the hotel to the BTS Sky Train system at Surasak Station meaning that Bangkok’s myriad of dining, shopping and sightseeing opportunities are just minutes away.

At the time of writing this article the recently opened Eastin Easy Patong on the tropical paradise of Phuket has, within a matter of months and despite being part of Eastin’s “budget” range, achieved a position of number 22 from over 600 hotels listed on Trip Advisor for the island with a higher rating than many 5 star resorts from the hotel groups.

Part of the reason for Eastin’s success is their properties cater for all budgets and requirements of the modern traveler. The Eastin Hotel category provides luxury accommodation with every possible amenity to ensure a perfect stay, while the Eastin Easy line offers guests all the essential services and comforts far in excess of the budget-price they charge. Long-stay guests are also well-catered for with Eastin Residences, offering spacious deluxe apartments and suites with all “mod-cons” to hand.

Currently Eastin Hotels & Residences operates 5 properties in their home country of Thailand, with a further 4 in India and 2 in Vietnam and an Eastin Residence in their first foray into the Middle East in Muscat, Oman. There are a further 7 Eastin’s close to opening this year and many more in the pipeline, bringing close to 6000 rooms accommodating guests by 2016.

Recently we had the opportunity to speak to AHS CEO Jonathan Wigley. “From our early days I simply couldn’t have foreseen the rapid inroads the Eastin and U brands have made into the region and the amount of satisfied customers we have welcomed. What makes me particularly proud is when our guests tell me that when they are looking for accommodation in a particular destination rather than simply searching for a hotel they will actively seek out an Eastin or U hotel. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication our teams put into ensuring our guests are completely satisfied with their stay and gives all of us great confidence and inspiration for the future of the company”. Jonathan said.

And going by the track record of satisfied customers and the outstanding value for money a stay at an Eastin property provides he has every reason to be confident.
