Rosewood Hotels and Resorts has reopened its properties in Bangkok and Laos as international travellers return to the destinations.
Rosewood Bangkok reopened on September 20 with 17 new guest rooms, wellness studios, signature suites and three residence-style ‘houses’ – a new set of accommodations with private plunge pools on outdoor terraces, wellness facilities and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Nara House is inspired by an “apartment loft of a worldly art collector” and features a collection of sculptures and contemporary paintings by up-and-coming Thai artists. The 208 sqm Thara House is situated on the 23rd floor and has more living space and a palette of silver and jade green. Both of these accommodations can be combined with a premier suite to make them into two-bedroom residences.
The Bannakarn House is located on the hotel’s top floor, with a private elevator accessed through a separate entrance, and has been inspired by a “mid-century modern Mad Men lifestyle of the 1950s and 60s”. It features a lounge area, cocktail bar, 10-seat dining table and full kitchen with a wine cooler, full-sized fridge and Gaggenau appliances.
The residence also features a commissioned figurative oil painting on canvas by Bangkok artist Amnaj Wachirasut, a separate powder room, walk-in closet and an outdoor terrace with sunbeds and a plunge pool.
Rosewood Luang Prabang in Laos, meanwhile, will reopen on October 1 with 23 accommodations including four deluxe rooms, four specialty suites, three riverside villas, six pool villas and six luxury tents with private dining areas and wrap-around decks.
Dining options include Laotian cuisine at The Great House, and cocktails made using local herbs and spices in the resort’s organic garden at the Elephant Bridge. Leisure facilities include a Sense spa, which uses locally harvested botanicals for its treatments, and a pool with sun beds under tented cabanas.
