Rosewood Bangkok hotel
Asia   The silhouette of the 30-storey standalone property is dramatic

Rosewood Bangkok, a striking new landmark for the capital, has opened as an intimate, ultra-luxury hotel on Ploenchit Road in the heart of the city's prime central business and retail district.

Rosewood's A Sense of Place philosophy is exuberantly expressed with a design that honors rich Thai culture while celebrating the cutting-edge creativity and contemporary design ethos of the dynamic capital.

The silhouette of the 30-storey standalone property is a dramatic addition to the Bangkok skyline.

Two graceful, connected structures have been masterfully 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.

The hotel provides direct access to the Ploenchit BTS Skytrain station, putting Bangkok's major attractions and the city's dining and nightlife districts only minutes away, and its close proximity to the major expressway to Bangkok's two international airports also offers convenient access to all major destinations within the capital.

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 entryway's modern metalwork 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 hotel has been designed to create a sense of intimacy and privacy throughout the entire guest journey; the brand's signature blend of stylish comfort and inspired design is delivered by a décor of rich materials and finishes in a soothing, neutral color palette.

Throughout the hotel, spacious terraces, abundant natural light and city skyline vistas seamlessly meld with Thai contemporary artworks; local craft and indigenous textiles are translated to elegant, modern interpretations; and subtle tropical accents convey an urban resort sensibility.
