Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Opens in the Heart of Bangkok
By Jane Kitchen 27 Jun 2019
Visiting guests can opt to visit BDMS Wellness Clinic, adjacent to the hotel, for a range of preventive healthcare treatments including physiotherapy, digestive wellness, dental and fertility treatments
The Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok has opened in the Thai capital city. Nestled in the heart of Sukhumvit, the resort is surrounded by 1.2-acres of lush greenery with trees dating back over a century, and is designed as an urban health retreat.

Featuring 293 bedrooms and suites with balconies that overlook the gardens, guestrooms come equipped with yoga mats, a dedicated health and fitness TV channel and a range of signature in-room amenities.

Health-conscious travellers can enjoy a range of organic food offerings at the resort’s restaurant Tamarind Natural Dining, and visiting guests can opt to visit BDMS Wellness Clinic, adjacent to the hotel, for a range of preventive healthcare treatments including physiotherapy, digestive wellness, dental and fertility treatments.

“With travellers placing more value on health and wellness than ever before, we are very excited to bring this innovative new concept to the market,” said Lindsay Madden-Nadeau, director of well-being for Mövenpick’s parent company Accor. “Increasingly, wellness is moving beyond the walls of the spa and fitness areas with guests also wanting greater access to personalised programming. Our new offering in Bangkok is a perfect example of how Accor and its leading hotel brands are meeting this need and delivering sustainable, approachable wellbeing concepts to visiting guests as well as local communities.”

Raymond Chong, CEO, BDMS Wellness Clinic, said he is excited to partner with Mövenpick on the development. “Our two companies complement each other perfectly; combining Mövenpick’s distinctive Swiss style with our clinic’s world-class preventative medical services, Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort Bangkok will introduce a brand new concept to the market,” he said. “We look forward to embarking on an exciting era of holistic hospitality.”

Leisure facilities at the hotel also include an outdoor pool and a fitness centre featuring state-of-the-art workout equipment designed by David Health Solutions. A spa and a Thai specialty restaurant will also open at the end of the year.

“Bangkok is a bustling and vibrant metropolis that travellers from all over the world aspire to visit at least once in their lifetime,” said Patrick Basset, COO of Mövenpick’s parent company Accor for Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives. “We are delighted to bring a hotel inspired by such a unique wellness concept into the heart of the city, where our guests can relax within lush green gardens whilst enjoying convenient access to the BDMS Wellness Clinic.”
