ROSEWOOD BANGKOK,a striking new landmark for the capital, has opened as an intimate, ultra-luxury hotel on Ploenchit Road in 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.
Rosewood’s A Sense of Place philosophy is expressed, with a design that
honors rich Thai culture while celebrating the cutting-edge creativity and contemporary design ethos of the dynamic capital.
“Rosewood Bangkok exemplifies a perfect marriage of destination and Rosewood’s core concept of a modern ultra-luxury hotel experience,” says Sonia Cheng, CEO, Rosewood Hotel Group.
“We are thrilled for travellers 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 stand alone property is a dramatic addition to the Bangkok skyline.
Two graceful, connected structures have been 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.
“Thai spirit is infused into every aspect of the Rosewood Bangkok experience,” says Thomas Harlander, the hotel’s managing director.
“Like the capital itself, the hotel is creatively contemporary, multi-layered, richly cultured and warmly welcoming–a fitting springboard for every guest’s own personal journey to discover the heart and soul of the city.
”In a nod to the Rosewood brand’s origins as a modern-day aristocratic manor, visitors arrive into their urban sanctuary via a private driveway signalling their entry to a world seemingly far removed from the bustling din of the city.
“The hotel’s contemporary design ethos is immediately communicated by the entry way’s modern metal work sculpture in the form of wai spelled in ancient Thai alphabet by artist Jiandyin, and the tumbling waterfall hints of the refreshing retreat within.
The innovative design and architecture of Rosewood Bangkok has allowed the creation of unique rooms and suites throughout the entire property, with no two floors sharing the same configuration, allowing for maximum flexibility, privacy and intimacy. Floorplates range from one to a maximum of 12 rooms per floor.
The hotel also showcases works of established and emerging Thai artists.
Rosewood Bangkok’s guestrooms fuse elegantly modern interiors with panoramic views of the metropolis. The hotel features 159 rooms including 34 suites and studios as well as three signature “houses” which also boast their own private pools and terraces
The property also includes a number of bespoke signature suites, studios and houses, which boast private meditation areas, terraces, outdoor plunge pools as special amenities.
Dynamic Dining and Stylish Libations Rosewood Bangkok features four innovative restaurant and bars, including a brasserie, signature Chinese restaurant, top-floor speakeasy bar and the first upscale organic café situated in a Bangkok hotel.
Rosewood Spa Sense, A Rosewood Spa occupies the entire sixth floor.
A welcoming and luxurious retreat for individuals seeking peace and tranquility, it offers a bespoke approach to personal well-being, drawing from the long heritage of Thailand’s healing culture.
Its treatments revive ancient Thai beauty rituals and “lost remedies,” paired with the latest innovations from skincare lines EviDenS de Beauté and Maison Caulières. Three single and two double treatment rooms offer a getaway of serenity for rejuvenation, relaxation and the pursuit of well-being.
