The first co-living lyf-brand property in Thailand.
Bangkok, Thailand – The Ascott Limited (Ascott), CapitaLand’s wholly owned lodging business unit, will reopen lyf Sukhumvit 8 Bangkok, the first lyf property in Thailand on 1 September 2022. A community of coworking spaces, event venues and private residences, lyf combines creative living spaces with curated social programmes to create a lifestyle environment that supports live, work and play for digital nomads, technopreneurs, creatives and self-starters.
lyf Sukhumvit 8 Bangkok is located in one of the trendiest shopping and entertainment hotspots in Bangkok. Its prime location in the capital city makes it an attractive choice for travellers interested in living their dreams and freedom. A stone’s throw away from Nana BTS Skytrain station, one train stop from Terminal 21 and three BTS stations away from Siam, the property is in the midst of it all. It is also within close proximity to top-quality dining options, shopping malls, and a myriad of entertainment venues and unique tourist spots.
The property offers the perfect co-living and co-working zones, with Connect – the co-working and lounge zone, Bond – the social kitchen, Wash & Hang – the laundromat, plus a rooftop outdoor terrace in a stunning Thai art-deco inspired setting. When desired, guests can retreat to the comfort and privacy of their own room, one of the 196 units of "One of a Kind" studios with ensuite bathrooms to choose from.
A key feature of the lyf experience is the community bonding events where the property and its Ambassador of Buzz hosts weekly social events like workshops, wellness classes, and panel discussions to bring guests together and encourage the sharing of new ideas. Intimate, topic-specific activities allow guests to connect over shared passions and learn more about one another.
Mr. Brian Tan, Country General Manager for Ascott Thailand and Laos, said "We are excited to reopen the lyf property in Thailand and to welcome back our millennial and millennial-minded guests! We look forward to providing them another chance to experience a stay unlike any other, with a style and quality that can only be found at lyf properties. We guarantee that your lyf will never be the same again."
lyf Sukhumvit 8 Bangkok is one of the five properties that The Ascott Limited is operating in their strategic partnership with Ananda Development PLC and Mitsui Fudosan Asia (Thailand) including Ascott Thonglor Bangkok, Ascott Embassy Sathorn, Somerset Rama 9 Bangkok, and Somerset Pattaya.
lyf, an acronym for "live your freedom," provides apartments, social spaces, and experiential programmes all aimed at creating a strong sense of community. Its digital technology empowers the brand as a co-living concept. The Discover ASR mobile app enables room bookings, simplified check-in and check-out processes, keyless room access, management of social spaces and community events, and communication with guests via a message board.
