Asset World Corporation Public Company Limited (AWC), Thailand’s leading integrated lifestyle real estate group, is raising the standard for the Thai tourism industry with its latest acquisition; the long-term lease of Lhong 1919, a historic riverside spot, from Wang Lee Company Limited. AWC will invest Bt3.43 billion developing the site into a luxury resort, which will be managed by The Ritz Carlton Hotel Company, under the River Journey concept. When completed, the prime area will become a world-class riverside wellness sanctuary that will attract health enthusiasts from around the world.


Wallapa Traisorat, Chief Executive Officer and President of Asset World Corporation Public Company Limited, said, “The signing of the land and property lease contract with Wang Lee Company Limited demonstrates AWC’s partnership in building a better future together and creating long-term value for the wellness tourism sector. AWC values the trust placed in us by the Wanglee family, in co-creating and developing a historic location to be an integrated wellness destination. Together, AWC’s existing riverside projects will connect along the Chao Phraya River embankment to form the River Journey concept, a truly unique riverfront experience for Thailand.”


With a total land size of more than 8 rai (3.1 acres), Lhong 1919 dates back to the reign of King Rama IV (1851 – 1868) and is situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River opposite Talad Noi.

The plans to develop the land for the long-term will create value for the local community and by partnering with The Ritz-Carlton, we will create a world-class destination. We are truly pleased to cooperate in this partnership as a trusted partner to develop a world-class, high-quality project.”
