Strategic association between lebua Hotels and Resorts and Steigenberger Hotel Group
The Steigenberger Hotel Group is starting a strategic association with lebua Hotels and
Resorts. The group is bringing high-end Asian cuisine to Germany. A whole new culinary
experience will be arriving at Steigenberger in 2015, when "East meets West". The
prize-winning restaurant "Breeze" by lebua, a well-known fixture on the 52nd floor of the
"Tower Club at lebua" hotel in Bangkok, opens its first European restaurant at
Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof, Frankfurt.
Sophisticated food, stylish menus and exquisite taste sensations will all be on offer as traditional Asian cooking showcases a modern and innovative approach. Named as one of "Thailand's Best Restaurants" for three consecutive years since 2011 by "Thailand Tatler" and applauded as one of the "World's Top 10 Cutting-Edge Restaurants" by "USA Today" in 2014, "Breeze" by lebua is a real gourmet delight.
This truly special restaurant concept will now be making its way to Germany, where it will be known as "Breeze" by lebua.
As the name implies, "Breeze" by lebua will be a breath of fresh air. "This is a gastronomic concept that is in tune with the times and once more underlines our international approach", said Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Steigenberger Hotels AG.
Deepak Ohri, CEO of lebua Hotels & Resorts, sees the association, whereby lebua will deliver destination dining concepts to key Steigenberger hotels, as naturally symbiotic. "The culinary arts have always been at the heart of lebua's DNA," he says, "just as it has played an integral part in the Steigenberger guest experience. I am sure that as we expand in Europe with Steigenberger through our restaurants, we can make a considerable contribution to that experience, providing another reason for guests to remember and cherish each one long after they have finished their meal."
