The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts announced the reopening of The Athenee Hotel in Bangkok following an extensive renovation and transformation into a Luxury Collection hotel. The Athenee Hotel will offer global explorers a gateway to the inspiring history and culture of Bangkok through the lens of The Luxury Collection, a glittering ensemble of world-renowned hotels and resorts delivering unique, authentic experiences.
The Athenee Hotel In Bangkok: Renowned Property Reopens as a Luxury Collection Hotel
Formerly known as Plaza Athenee Bangkok, the newly restored Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok, stands on the grounds of the Kandhavas Palace, former royal residence of Princess Valaya Alongkorn.
A homage to its regal lineage, the hotel’s opulent re-design is a modern take on traditional Thai design elements with a distinctly European flair. With the opening of Athenee Hotel, The Luxury Collection continues its commitment to celebrating the heritage of the world’s most iconic hotels through meticulous restoration projects that pay tribute to local indigenous charms and treasures.
Overseen by interior design firms Vekhin Interior and Bangkok Dec-Con PLC, The Luxury Collection’s multi-million dollar renovation of The Athenee Hotel in Bangkok will bring to life Bangkok’s roots in an authentic and indigenous way. The redesign incorporates many aspects of the Thai colonial style of the princess’ lifetime, from the influence of Thai royal ceremonies in the Royal Club guestrooms and Athenee suites to the carefully selected color palettes and artwork for the interiors.
In addition to the refurbishment of common spaces and all 374 luxurious guest rooms, The Athenee Hotel’s transformation includes a newly redesigned city-lagoon styled swimming pool area. Skillfully merging the outdoor pool area with an indoor function space inspired by the timeless style of Kandhavas Palace, the designers have created a distinctly Thai venue for leisure and relaxation. Guests will also have several food and beverage options to enjoy, from the popular Smooth Curry restaurant to The Glaz bar, whose timeless neo-colonial décor celebrates the hotel’s location on the site of a former royal palace.
The Luxury Collection’s Athenee Hotel has unveiled the “Transformative Journey” package to showcase its glamorous redesign and luxury services and amenities. Available for bookings made through November 15, 2017, and applicable for stays through January 31, 2018, the Transformative Journey package includes round-trip airport transfers in a BMW Series 5; special welcome gifts linked to the hotel’s illustrious history; access to the exclusive Royal Club Lounge; and THB 2,000 net hotel credit per stay to use at the hotel’s restaurants and Spa Athenee.
