The hotel is among the most prestigious in the city,” said Yasuhiro.  “My years of experience living and working in Thailand – plus the amazing team that I have at Okura – will ensure that we continue to meet and surpass the highest standards of omotenashi. The quality of service we offer and the sophisticated but tranquil journey of comfort we take our guests on, these are what make us unique. I must add that this is an exciting time to be joining the hotel as we celebrate our 10-year milestone in Thailand. Thailand is fully open and we are eager to welcome local patrons and international travellers who seek to experience the wonderful combination of refined Japanese hospitality amid the vibrancy of the bustling Thai capital,” he added.
