Having undergone a complete transformation, Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien has now emerged as The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok.
Inspired by the life and travels of Princess Valaya Alongkorn, a daughter of Chulalongkorn, King Rama V (1853 – 1910) and an aunt of the late King Rama IX Bhumibol Adulyadej, the opulent reinvention of the hotel helps to define Bangkok as a destination, not only in terms of its location — but its history and culture.
Standing in the grounds of the princess’s former royal residence, the hotel will be elevated to the status of a Luxury Collection Hotel on 6 October 2017. Everything is ready to welcome guests, whose first impressions will be of a grand staircase radiating beneath the sparkle of bespoke chandeliers. Throughout the hotel, guests will find themselves immersed in an engaging blend of Thai and European styles united in the spirit of the princess.
“The Athenee Hotel is a complete metamorphosis out of its previous version, while retaining all the elements that made it the most loved hotel in Thai society. We are excited to partner with Marriott International, who will manage the hotel under the prestigious Luxury Collection brand.” said Nishant Grover,chief operating officer of Asset World Corporation.
