Thailand’s 1st YOTEL to Open at Cloud 11
23 May 2023, Bangkok – Cloud 11, MQDC’s second theme project positioned as Asia’s largest hub for content creators, has partnered with world-class smart hotel brand YOTEL for the launch of YOTEL Bangkok. The futuristic hotel will be Thailand’s first YOTEL with a mission of providing a unique stay experience through smart design and creative use of technology. YOTEL Bangkok is scheduled to open in 2025 to serve creators, new-generation people, startups, investors, and entrepreneurs as well as to support South Sukhumvit’s development as one of Bangkok’s innovation districts.
Mr. Onza Janyaprasert, Project Director of Cloud 11, says: “Cloud 11 is materializing under the ‘Empowering Creators’ concept out of our determination to create a practical property project for content creation. To fulfill the lifestyles of both creators and new-generation people in all dimensions, Cloud 11 will feature many zones: Creative Office & Studio Space, Hybrid Retail, Education, Event Hall, Public Space, and Hotel. We are immensely honored to have YOTEL as our partner. The first YOTEL hotel in Thailand will be based at Cloud 11.
“With YOTEL’s signature design and technologies, guests will enjoy a comfortable stay with an exceptional and modern touch. Because YOTEL answers the needs of new-generation people who crave freedom and convenience, its hotel will be perfect for creators and entrepreneurs coming to Cloud 11 and South Sukhumvit, which is transforming itself into an innovation district. The opening of YOTEL Bangkok at Cloud 11 will be another significant element of our ecosystem.”
YOTEL has blended innovative technologies into its design and services. Drawing inspiration from first-class airliner seats, its rooms are compact yet efficient. Backed by modern technologies, every room is well-equipped and ready to comprehensively respond to guests’ needs. There are now 15 YOTELs in Europe, North America, and Asia. YOTEL Bangkok will be the third YOTEL in Asia, with the first opening in Singapore and the second scheduled for launch in Japan next year.
Mr. Hubert Viriot, CEO of YOTEL, says: “We are extremely pleased to bring Thailand’s first YOTEL to Cloud 11 because we recognize that Cloud 11 is going to serve as a hub for tech innovation and digital learning related to content creation. We also appreciate the fact that Cloud 11 accords importance to environmental sustainability and locals’ quality of life, which are perfectly aligned with our goal to curb carbon emissions and energy consumption. Cloud 11 is truly the right location for YOTEL Bangkok.
“Developed as Asia’s ultimate content creator hub, and elevating South Sukhumvit as a Bangkok innovation district, Cloud 11 is close to the city center. From Cloud 11, people can conveniently travel to various parts of Bangkok through the BTS system. We can therefore foresee rising demand for accommodation here. We are fully confident that by partnering with Cloud 11 on the basis of a shared vision, we will set a new service standard and foster sustainable economic growth in this district.”
From check-in to check-out, guests at YOTEL Bangkok will be immersed in the “Heart of Innovation and Technology”. YOTEL’s cutting-edge technologies include Self-Service Kiosks, where guests can conveniently complete their check-in registration in just a few minutes, and Motorized SmartBeds™, which can transform from a bed to a sofa to give guests more space for their other activities.
Through lighting, color choices, and ambience, interior décor serves fun alongside comfort. Smart TV, USB sockets, and high-speed Wi-Fi internet also rank among YOTEL’s innovative features. YOTEL Bangkok will also present convenient facilities like the brand’s signature multi-functional dining, 24-hour fitness center, Grab+Go Snack Station, Sky Bar, Co-Working Space, and Meeting Hubs. In all, YOTEL Bangkok promises to fulfill the needs of both work and leisure travelers.
