Steeped in both history and imagination, the Orient Express Mahanakhon Bangkok has been reinvented for the future, with a vision to build a collection of prestigious hotels which resonate with tradition, myth and adventure.
Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, Chief Executive Officer of King Power Group said, “The launch of the world’s first Orient Express Hotel at King Power Mahanakhon truly completes our vision of creating an extraordinary landmark that celebrates the city and adds a new milestone to Thailand and the world’s hospitality industry, while further elevating Thailand to a truly world-class destination. King Power Mahanakhon seeks for all of its projects to be different, impressive and distinctive exuding excellence in every dimension. We look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world, and placing Thailand’s tourism scene on the global stage through a landmark that combines exceptional hospitality, award-winning cuisine, a unique shopping experience and Bangkok’s spectacular views.”
Sebastien Bazin, Chairman and CEO of AccorHotels said “Orient Express has always acted as a passport between worlds and a trip on these legendary trains was historical, touristic and cinematic with an inimitable experience. This linking of Occident and Orient, of history and modernity, and of curiosity and cultures will be a hallmark of the new Orient Express Hotels and we are excited to bring back this spirit of luxurious adventure to today’s modern travellers.”
The original Orient Express trains were famous for the highest standards of fine craftsmanship, the newest innovations and the most exquisite dining and so Orient Express Mahanakhon Bangkok will bring together the best names in these fields to reinterpret the art of luxury travel. Orient Express Mahanakhon Bangkok will feature 154 rooms including 9 suites and 2 penthouses, as well as an entire floor devoted to wellness including an outdoor pool and jacuzzi plus signature Orient Express Spa by Guerlain. Guests will have access to the building’s spectacular rooftop observation deck and rooftop bar, all rooms will overlook stunning views over the Far East ‘City of Angels’.
The hotel will open in the last quarter of 2019, 136 years after the Orient Express took its maiden voyage from Paris.
