Rosewood Bangkok closes due to Covid downturn

The Rosewood Bangkok hotel has ceased operating until further notice due to the pandemic downturn, the hotel said.

The 30-story hotel is among many struggling hospitality businesses severely impacted by the pandemic.

The restrictions on international travel have almost frozen the flow of tourist traffic.

Rosewood Bangkok is an upmarket project developed by Rende Development Co., Ltd. and owned by the family of Thaksin Shinawatra, Thailand's former prime minister.

"The temporary shutdown of Rosewood Bangkok is meant to re-establish a foothold amid uncertainties," Paetongtarn Shinawatra, Rende's deputy chief executive and daughter of Thaksin, wrote in a Facebook post.

The safety of all hotel staff and guests is a priority, she said.

Marisa Sukosol Nunphakdi, President of the Thai Hotels Association, called on the government to allow eateries in hotels to reopen in compliance with the order to ease restrictions on restaurants.

Fitness centres, swimming pools and meeting rooms in hotels should also be allowed with some regulations, Marisa said.
