Asia: The Saffron Collection of boutique and independent hotels by Onyx will debut with the Oriental Residence Bangkok and The Five Residences Hanoi.
The collection will initially comprise hotels located in Bangkok and Hanoi, with plans to expand across APAC.
Each property will connect guests with the past and present though locally inspired experiences and curated details. A customised cocktail cabinet will be anchored in every lobby, for example, offering a select list of mixology concoctions from the locality as well as a signature cocktail representing each Saffron hotel.
Douglas Martell, president and CEO at Onyx Hospitality Group, said: “Saffron Collection is driven by our quest to create a distinctive portfolio of boutique hotels and resorts that appeal to guests who want to be immersed in the stories and legends of the places they visit.”
He explained: “Each Saffron Collection property aims to create memorable experiences through locally-relevant design and sensitive integration into the past and present of a destination. For owners and investors, Saffron Collection is also our way of preserving the compelling moments in a family, a corporation or a building and area’s history, and reinterpreting them towards memorable experiences for our present and future travellers.”
Onyx’s Oriental Residence Bangkok will be reintroduced as a Saffron Collection property, and The Five Residences Hanoi is set to debut this October.
The George in Penang will launch in mid-2021, followed by the reopening of Indochina Hotel in Aranyaprathet, Thailand, early 2022.
