Minor Hotel Group has reached 100 hotels in operation with the rebranding of Thai property The Chedi Chiang Mai to Anantara Chiang Mai Resort and Spa.
“The announcement of our 100th property is an important milestone for Minor Hotel Group and one we are very proud to achieve,” said Minor Hotel Group CEO, Dillip Rajakarier.
“The fact that our 100th property is such a significant addition to the portfolio, both with it being such a stunning resort and the strategic addition of a Chiang Mai property to our Thailand collection of Anantara properties, makes it even more special.
“Chiang Mai is a key destination in Thailand and one we have been looking at for development opportunities for a long time, adding the perfect dot on the map as our eleventh property in Thailand,” he said.
