Inside the Ultra-Luxury Rosewood Bangkok Hotel

Luxury hotel group Rosewood has added to its growing portfolio with the opening of a new destination in Bangkok, Thailand. The 30-story standalone property is the 27th in Rosewood’s global network and its second in Thailand.

With a striking architectural design, the new hotel is a dramatic addition to Bangkok’s skyline. The building is formed from two connected structures, which is supposed to symbolize wai – the Thai gesture of hands pressed together in greeting.

Ideally located in on Ploenchit Road in the heart of the city’s prime central business and retail district, it immediately becomes one of Bangkok’s prime accommodations for business and recreational travelers. The hotel is surrounded by new office blocks and is steps away from Central Embassy, the capital’s most luxurious shopping mall.

The hotel has been designed so that it provides sanctuary from the metropolis that surrounds it. This starts from the moment guests turn into the private driveway and continues as they are greeted by the sound of the hotel’s 10-story waterfall. The numerous water features have been designed in tribute to Bangkok’s relationship with the sacred element.

There are 159 rooms including 34 suites and studios. This includes three signature “houses” reserved for the elite traveler. These exceptional properties boast private meditation areas, terraces, outdoor plunge pools as special amenities. The suite collection includes the loft-style Manor Suite, which features floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows offering natural light and an unparalleled perspective on the Bangkok skyline.

Guests have four dining options to choose from including a brasserie, signature Chinese restaurant, top-floor speakeasy bar and the first upscale organic café situated in a Bangkok hotel.

Lennon’s, a stylish bar perched on the top floor of Rosewood Bangkok, is likely to prove popular with its 6,000-strong vinyl collection available to request and even purchase. G&O (Green & Organic) is located just steps away from the hotel pool and brings a farm-to-table concept to life with a menu full of locally-grown natural ingredients.

Rosewood’s commitment to wellbeing is laid bare on the sixth floor, which has been completely reserved for the hotel’s Serenity of Sense Spa. Treatments are inspired by ancient Thai rituals with “lost remedies” complemented by modern skincare lines EviDenS de Beauté and Maison Caulières. The indoor-outdoor saltwater pool appears like an oasis as the sound of the waterfall replaces the hustle of the surrounding city with ambient, natural sounds.
