Minor Hotels launches RAKxa
Minor Hotels, an international hotel owner, operator and investor, announced a partnership with M.K. Real Estate Development and VitalLife Scientific Wellness Centre (a subsidiary of Bumrungrad International Hospital) to launch RAKxa Fully Integrative Wellness and Medical Retreat – a ground-breaking development that will cement Thailand’s position as a world class medical wellness destination.Launching in December, RAKxa was conceived as a fully sustainable medical wellness retreat within Bang Krachao on the Chao Praya River, known locally as the 'Green Lung' of Bangkok. The concept, at the crossroads of science and tradition, aims to deliver bespoke healthcare in a relaxing environment. RAKxa’s 60 private villas, upholstered in Jim Thomson silks and furnished with handcrafted pieces, will be managed by Minor Hotels. In December, 27 garden villas at 80sqm will welcome the retreat’s first guests to private gardens with an ever-changing ecosystem of indigenous plants and flowers. Pool villas and a presidential villa are set to launch in early 2021. Separated from the rest of Bangkok by a winding river, RAKxa is accessible by both boat and car and is located approximately an hour from both Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang International Airports.
