Rosewood Bangkok, a striking new landmark for the capital, has opened as an intimate, ultra-luxury hotel on Ploenchit Road in heart of the city’s prime central business and retail district. As the 27th property in the growing global network for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®, the hotel is the brand’s second destination in Thailand and also serves as a gateway to its sister Southeast Asian properties in Phuket; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; and Luang Prabang, Laos. 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.
