U City was formerly Natural Park PLC and in 2015 bought over BTS Asset Company Limited and Kamkoong Property Company Limited.

Capital flight from Thailand into Europe has continued despite the BREXIT scare, given rising development and operating costs in Asia and relative  favorable value of  hotel assets outside the region.
