one of asia’s leading serviced apartment providers moves into thailand   


Hong Kong, 15 October 2010 - Asia’s premier, boutique serviced apartment provider, Shama, today 

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.  

“Thailand is an attractive market for Shama,” said Elaine Young, Executive Vice President, ONYX. “It has a 

large, mature tourism industry, and a big expat community comprising both Western and Asian expats, a key 

target market for Shama.” 


“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
