Waldorf Astoria Bangkok introduces lauded brand to Southeast Asia


Situated within the 60-storey Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard, Waldorf Astoria Bangkok (managed by Hilton) recently opened in the heart of the city.

Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is located by the bustling Ratchaprasong intersection, within walking distance of renowned shopping precincts. Just a few minutes’ stroll to the Erawan Shrine, the luxurious Gaysorn Village mall and both lines of the Bangkok Mass Transit System Skytrain, the hotel is ideally positioned for guests to immerse themselves in the city’s colourful culture.

Other highlights within a ten- to 25-minute drive include the Charoenkrung Creative District, the iconic Grand Palace and the city’s beautiful flower market. Architect André Fu and his design studio AFSO designed the main hotel. Globally recognised for their work, which ranges from modern hospitality projects and art spaces to high-profile fashion collaborations, AFSO has artistically curated a holistic Waldorf Astoria Bangkok hotel experience that unites the building’s contemporary architecture with Thai artisanal tradition.

Conceptualised to embrace the gracious Thai spirit in an elegant setting, the 171 residential-style, spacious and luxuriously appointed guest rooms and suites feature spa-inspired bathrooms and marble bathtubs.
