Minor Hotel Group has announced plans to expand its Oaks Hotels & Resorts brand in Australia and the Middle East.
The Thailand-based hotelier, which purchased the upscale Oaks label in 2011, will continue to grow the brand’s portfolio with two new properties this year; Oaks on William in Melbourne and Oaks Liwa Executive Suites in Abu Dhabi. The openings follow the recent launch of Oaks’ first Southeast Asian property in Bangkok.
“Oaks Hotels & Resorts will continue our global expansion in 2013 with more properties in Australia and overseas set to be announced soon. These are exciting times for our company and we are committed to offering our guests the very best value for quality accommodation in popular resort and city locations worldwide,” said Oaks’ General Manager of Sales Daniel Csortan.
The 54-unit Oaks Liwa Executive Suites launched earlier this month, while the 220-unit Oaks on William is due for completion in August 2013. Oaks properties are usually designed for long-stay travellers, with apartment-style units including kitchenettes.
