InterContinental Hotels Group brings a new resort to central Thailand with the signing of a management agreement with Elysian Hotel Management Company Limited.

InterContinental Khao Yai Swan Lake Resort is set to open later this year as an integral part of the Swan Lake mixed-use project, and part of a vision to turn Swan Lake into a true destination.

The resort offers 61 rooms and an unparalleled connection to nature. The hotel provides rooms over seven lakes, mountains and more than 50,000 trees. The resort opens with traditional and expected IHG amenities like a pool and gym, but more amenities and facilities will be added in 2021. Among the additions, a train-inspired spa, kids club and wedding chapel will elevate the property.

The property lies near Khao Yai National Park, a popular destination for Thai and international visitors alike. It is a quick 2.5 hours from Bangkok, but feels secluded and connected to nature. IHG already has 29 hotels across six brands in Thailand.
