MUMBAI, India (November 7, 2012) — Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Limited (MHRIL), India’s largest vacation ownership company, today announced the addition of a resort in Bangkok, Thailand. The new property called ‘Mac Boutique Suites’ is a 77-room resort located centrally in the Bangkok business district.
Speaking about the addition, Rajiv Sawhney, Managing Director & CEO, MHRIL said,”This is the first step towards what we believe will be the next big movement in family holidays. Building where Indians love to go – outside of India. We have been considering locations like Dubai, Sri Lanka, Malaysia including Bangkok. With this addition, our strategy has begun to take shape.”
Mac Boutique Suites is a full service resort on Sukhumvit road, in Bangkok’s bustling business district. Located only a few steps away from BTS Nana Station, a few minutes away from the MRT (Subway) Asoke Station and only 5 minutes from the expressway, it offers easy access to a wide array of shopping, entertainment, museums & international restaurants.
