The Athenee Hotel
Regal heritage and opulence are the essence of The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok. Prestigiously positioned on the grounds of the Kandhavas Palace, former royal residence of Princess Valaya Alongkorn (1853–1910), the hotel has been redesigned and restored with a flavour of the Thai colonial style of the era, a period of unprecedented modernization and Western architectural influence.
Transformed by award-winning interior design company Niratt Design Corporation Co, the 5-star hotel welcomes guests to a balconied lobby showcasing traditional Thai sculpture. On the roof a free-form swimming pool looks out over the city. The influence of Thai royal ceremonies has been used to inform the design of the Royal Club guestrooms and The Athenee suites, featuring carved wood panelling and rich wood furniture. The emphasis on comfort and luxury continues into the bathrooms, where GROHE Euphoria shower systems, Rainshower Cosmopolitan shower heads and elegantly bevelled Somerset faucets offer classic style and unrivalled performance.
