Shama expands with flagship property in Bangkok

Asia’s premier, boutique serviced apartment provider, Shama, announced the opening of its first, flagship property outside of Greater China, Shama Sukhumvit. Following Shama’s acquisition by ONYX Hospitality Group, the Thailand based hotel management company, Shama’s new property in Bangkok marks the expansion of its superior serviced apartment offering in a number of gateway cities in Asia.

Shama Sukhumvit sets a new standard for serviced living in Bangkok – a highly competitive market for operators, with a wealth of mid range, long and short term lease, serviced living options. Shama Sukhumvit will offer tenants a superior accommodation, in a prime location in Bangkok, complete with state of the art facilities and 90, one, two and three bedroom apartments.

Tenants will benefit from a range of facilities at Shama Sukhumvit including the Shama Rooftop – an outdoor swimming pool and children’s pool; a well equipped children’s play area; a tropical garden with BBQ facilities; a Fitness Centre; Shama Relax – tenants lounge; a Business Centre; and a Shama Café. Shama will also offer short and long term leases for this new property (1 day – 12 months) which will appeal to both tourists to Bangkok, and long term corporate tenants.


The new Shama Sukhumvit is located just 30-minutes-drive from Suvarnabhumi International and Don Muang Airports and close to the BTS Sky Train. The property is located in the heart of Bangkok, close to both the business district and some of the city’s most popular tourist attractions, providing an ideal short or long term accommodation option for families, tourists and business tenants.

“Bangkok is a competitive market for serviced apartment operators but we are confident that Shama Sukhumvit will add something new to the current offering in the market,” Young added. “This opening is an exciting step for Shama and an important addition to Shama’s growing Asia offering. We continue to expand and are currently aggressively seeking number of opportunities for growth in gateway cities across the region.”
