Aman is slated to launch a sleek new hotel nestled among Nai Lert Park’s tropical gardens in the heart of Bangkok.
Scheduled to welcome its first guests in the third quarter of 2024, the property will feature a 52-suite hotel, 39 branded residences and an expansive wellness offering. It will also be home to an array of dining establishments including an exclusive omakase restaurant, jazz bar, and Arva – the brand’s signature Italian eatery.
The new outpost is just the latest in a series of openings from the luxury brand in recent years including the hotly anticipated Aman New York which quickly cemented its status among the city’s best hotels.

Aman brought in Jean-Michel Gathy – the revered designer responsible for some of the planet’s most iconic hotels – to put his stamp on the interiors. As the creative mind behind The Chedi Andermatt, Four Seasons Tokyo, Marina Bay Sands and, most recently, Aman New York, expectations are high.
Gathy is known for pushing boundaries with his charismatic designs and Aman Nai Lert Bangkok looks to be no exception. While details remain sparse for the time being, renderings reveal pared-back, stylish interiors that let the skyline views take center stage.
In a nod to the beautiful surroundings, Gathy has used plenty of natural materials throughout the property, creating a ‘contemporary urban sanctuary amidst Nai Lert Park’s eight-acre private oasis,’ according to the brand. The park itself was designed and built in 1915 by Nai Lert – Thailand’s first and foremost developer who established the first five-star hotel in Bangkok. He lived in a large teak house in the park which, in 2012, was converted into a heritage property and is now open to the public.
“It has been an excellent experience to work in collaboration with the Nai Lert family who are the owners and custodians of Nai Lert Park and have an unrivaled legacy in Bangkok, and in particular Naphaporn ‘Lek’ Bodiratnangkura who has been instrumental in bringing this project to life,” said Vlad Doronin, chairman, CEO and owner of Aman Group. “Aman Nai Lert will be our third global city destination and our 25th hotel in Asia, making it a strategic connector for journeys throughout other Aman destinations in the region.”
