Same owners as the Oriental in Bangkok

Actually if i got it right and from what i heard, it does have connection to the Oriental in Bangkok, both will be the same owners -Italian-Thai group and same managment.I think it will be branded as Oriental managment officialy too.
I got invited to this Pre Launch as well, so i guess we will know more by then.

Ohh and i dont like leasehold as well, especially not in Thailand.

No. I checked absolutely no link with Mandarin Oriental. Looks like the local thai partners are doing this to ride the brand name. In fact heard that they are using Amari to do all of the hotel-related services. Kinda misleading I'd say.

sorry I dont think its the same management/brand.....if it was, they would use the name "Mandarin Oriental" and the famous "fan" logo....

here they are just using the generic name "Oriental"......

yeah- and Mandarin recently invested to change the name of the oriental (riverside) to Mandarin Oriental. definitely an issue here. however, location is right, ithalthai is great, views are awesome, is it special 60/90 years lease???

no..........just straight 30 year lease (because this is Crown Property or Privy Purse land just like St. Regis nearby).......

Went to pre-launch today - nothing too exciting. Some of the floor plans are badly conceived. Prices around 140,000 with the current 15% discount.
