BANGKOK, Feb. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CapitaLand's wholly-owned lodging business unit, The Ascott Limited in Thailand celebrates the grand opening of Somerset Maison Asoke Bangkok in an evening of glitz and glamour.
Themed "An Evening of Timeless Elegance", the event was held at the property's own Blend Bistro & Wine Bar on 17th January 2019 to mark its successful opening since September 2018. The VIP guests were treated to an evening of exquisite food, great drinks and entertained to a live performance of jazz maestro, Koh Mr. Saxman and his band. To round off the evening, every guest was presented with custom-made reed diffusers of Somerset Maison's signature scent, Simply Maison.
Mr. Brian Tan, Country General Manager for Ascott in Thailand and Laos, took the opportunity to extend his appreciation to the guests for their great support. He said:
"Somerset Maison Asoke has been successful since its soft opening due to four reasons. Firstly, it's unmatched location in the heart of Bangkok. Secondly, it's wonderful product and the finishing quality of the guestrooms and public areas. Thirdly, it's warm and sincere service from the staff and, last but not least, the wonderful partners that support us. That is why we were able to achieve over 80% occupancy within three months of our soft opening. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our guests, our clients and our team who worked so hard to make these happen. May 2019 bring to every one of us greater success and blessings."
