The 155-room hotel will be the brand’s first in Southeast Asia, and is now taking reservations for stays from May 11, 2022.

The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon has been created by Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon in collaboration with The Standard’s in-house design team, and has been inspired by “vibrant colours, fluid shapes, evolving art installations and lush greenery that flows seamlessly inside and out”.
