Hilton’s luxury brand, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, will welcome its first guests in South East Asia in the third quarter of 2018 with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Bangkok. One of the region’s most anticipated hotel openings this year, the grand debut will introduce the brand’s iconic experience to discerning travelers in the vibrant Thai capital, in the heart of the bustling Ratchaprasong intersection.
In tribute to the owners of the property, Magnolia Finest Corporation Limited, the building has been designed to give the effect of springing from the ground like a Magnolia flower. Towering above the city, the dazzling sculptural appearance of the property cuts a dramatic profile in the skyline of Bangkok.
The hotel will boast 171 luxuriously appointed and spacious guest rooms and suites, which reflect the artistry and craftsmanship of award-winning architect André Fu and his design studio AFSO. Globally recognized for high-profile, high-end hotels, art spaces and fashion collaborations, the studio has been involved in curating the holistic hotel experience that brings together the building’s contemporary architecture with Thai artisanal tradition. The hotel’s crown jewel, meanwhile, will span the top three floors from levels 55 to 57, comprising three distinctively curated dining outlets by world-renowned design and concept firm AvroKO, headquartered in New York.
In line with Waldorf Astoria’s culinary heritage, Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is primed to be a dining destination in itself; it will feature three unique restaurant concepts, a lounge and two bars. Acclaimed chef Rungthiwa Chummongkhon, or Chef Fae, will bring her experience of working at Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe to head the restaurant Front Room, which will present an elegant new blend of “new Nordic” and Thai flavors in a relaxed setting.
