Singapore, 25th October 2023 – ONYX Hospitality Group, a renowned Bangkok-based hospitality company celebrated for its hotels and resorts, serviced apartments, and luxury residences across Asia Pacific, is delighted to share its latest achievements following its successful participation at ITB Asia, the leading travel trade show in the region, held from 25th to 27th October 2023. 

At this influential event, ONYX Hospitality Group connected with industry partners, showcased its world-class meeting and event facilities, and provided insights into its aggressive expansion strategy, solidifying its position as “The Best Medium-sized Hospitality Management Company in Southeast Asia.” 

With a profound commitment to a “Tailored Approach to Hospitality,” ONYX Hospitality Group boasts an impressive portfolio of 44 properties spread across Thailand, Malaysia, China, the Maldives, Bangladesh, and Laos. These properties are managed under four innovative and intuitive brands, including Amari, OZO, Shama, and Oriental Residence. 

Expanding Horizons: ONYX Hospitality Group is on an ambitious trajectory, with plans to operate over 50 properties by 2025 and an even more ambitious target of 70 by 2028. Notable recent additions include the exquisite Amari Raaya Maldives, which welcomed its first guests in Q3 2023, and the eagerly anticipated Amari Colombo Sri Lanka set to open its doors in 2024. Moreover, the group has a further 9 properties in the pipeline, with 8 slated to make their grand debut in 2024. 

While ONYX’s presence spans the globe, its core strategic focus for growth centres on Southeast Asia, specifically the dynamic markets of Thailand and Malaysia. This emphasis on Southeast Asia is substantiated by the region’s thriving tourism industry, increasing demand for high-quality accommodations, and a burgeoning MICE sector, all of which underscore the region’s suitability for our expansion endeavours. Furthermore, the company is actively exploring opportunities in Hong Kong to secure additional projects and expand its presence in the region. The year 2024 is set to witness significant growth in Malaysia and Thailand. Beyond 2024, ONYX has its sights set on Indonesia, with plans to establish a strong presence in Bali, Jakarta, and beyond, thus cementing its footprints in this dynamic and thriving region.
