AccorHotels from France will continue to increase its presence in Thailand, and not just in Bangkok.

Local newspapers are reporting that the company will bring its mid-scale, lifestyle hotel brand, Mama Shelter, to the country. Accor is also looking for opportunities to manage luxury residential projects for Thai developers.

Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Officer for upper Southeast and Northeast Asia at Accor, reports that the trend of hotel-branded residences keeps expanding in Asia-Pacific and Thai real estate developers are now interested in taking advantage of this growing trend. No names were mentioned, but it is believed that some homebuilders want to have professional hotel chains managing their high-end residential projects.

One reason hotel-branded residences are popular is because they offer a mix of prestigious hospitality and urban real estate space that typical resonates with foreigners and locals alike. Hotel chains that have managed residences in Thailand include Sofitel So Residences, M Gallery by Sofitel, Pullman, Swissotel, Grand Mercure and Novotel.
