The hotel’s architectural design will be led by Bangkok-based A49, while Singapore-based White Jacket will design the hotel’s interiors.

The property will have New World Hotels & Resorts’ signature Residence Club executive floors and lounge.

Food and beverage choices will include a lobby lounge, café, specialty restaurant and rooftop pool bar.

Meeting and function facilities totaling 13,993 square feet will include a grand ballroom with landscaped outdoor terrace on the top floor, and four meeting rooms with circular connecting stairway.
