Rosewood Bangkok, a striking new landmark for the capital, has opened as an intimate, ultra-luxury hotel on Ploenchit Road in the heart of the city’s prime central business and retail district.
As the 27th property in the growing global network for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®, the hotel is the brand’s second destination in Thailand and also serves as a gateway to its sister Southeast Asian properties in Phuket; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; and Luang Prabang, Laos. Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy is exuberantly expressed with a design that
“Rosewood Bangkok exemplifies a perfect marriage of destination and Rosewood’s core concept of a modern ultra-luxury hotel experience,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are thrilled for travelers and residents to experience the warmth of Thai hospitality and the dynamism and beauty of its culture within such a fresh, exciting and radiant retreat.”
The silhouette of the 30-storey standalone property is a dramatic addition to the Bangkok skyline. Two graceful, connected structures have been masterfully combined to create a new icon for the capital. The building’s form is inspired by the wai — the charming Thai gesture of hands pressed together in greeting – and is itself an expression of the Thai capital’s growing influence as a design, fashion and creative hub in the region.
Rosewood Bangkok is situated within an enclave of embassies and sleek new office towers, surrounded by Thai fashion designer boutiques and is just steps from Central Embassy, the capital’s most luxurious upscale shopping mall.
The hotel provides direct access to the Ploenchit BTS Skytrain station, putting Bangkok’s major attractions and the city’s dining and nightlife districts only minutes away, and its close proximity to the major expressway to Bangkok’s two international airports also offers convenient access to all major destinations within the capital.
