Art and design are at the centre of the new Waldorf Astoria Bangkok, the brand’s first property in Southeast Asia.
Opened in August 2018 inside the sparkling Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard building, the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok was created by internationally acclaimed architect Andre Fu. It pays homage to the brand’s original property, the grand Art Deco Waldorf Astoria New York, while also celebrating traditional Thai culture.
“The inspiration for the Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is birthed out of my personal reflection of many artisanal aspects of Thai culture, infusing these elements with what I felt would evoke the quintessential Waldorf Astoria experience. I am also hugely inspired by the Art Deco motifs in the original Waldorf Astoria New York and I sought to challenge myself with the goal to juxtapose these elements into a new form of expression in the Bangkok hotel.” says Fu.
There are 171 glamorous rooms, four restaurants, two rooftop bars and a stunning 70-metre rooftop infinity pool overlooking the sparkling lights of the city.
The Waldorf Astoria Bangkok will also be launching an exclusive art experience for guests in mid 2019. Stay tuned for more details.
