Thailand’s First Halal Hotel Goes Beyond Food And Drink To Welcome Muslims


BANGKOK:Thailand’s first halal hotel, Al Meroz Hotel, was opened at the beginning of 2016.

Hotel accommodations, dining and leisure facilities have been specially created for Muslims. “All meals in our restaurants are halal certified and the hotel is non-alcoholic,” CEO Rausak Mulsap said.

The property features 242 rooms and suites, three restaurants, a large outdoor swimming pool, gymnasium and meeting rooms.

Speaking about the reason to open such a hotel in Thailand, he said, “There isn’t any halal-friendly hotel to cater to Muslim travellers in Thailand, so we do not want to miss out on a huge opportunity in the halal tourism market.”

The hotel has been certified by the Dubai-based Gulf Halal organisation. The 100 per cent halal hotel concept at Al Meroz means more than offering food and gaining a halal certification; it also provides a Muslim-friendly environment, catering to the community’s religious needs, safety, trustworthiness and hygiene, he added.

The hotel is located with an easy access to the Suvarnabhumi Airport and downtown Bangkok. A choice of luxurious rooms and suites are offered, with one floor reserved exclusively for female guests.

Most of the Arab tourists are from the United Arab Emirates, but Muslim tourists from countries, such as Malaysia and Indonesia, are also regulars.
