The 303-room Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok has opened in the heart of the Thai capital, adjacent to the Siam Paragon lifestyle mall. Unique for featuring hundreds of Thai art works, the luxury hotel is the first Kempinski in Thailand (see news).
"We choose our hotel developments very carefully," said Kempinski president and CEO Reto Wittwer. "With our strategic location and beautifully appointed facilities, we are optimistic that Siam Kempinski will become one of our more sought after and acclaimed properties."
The Bangkok property is one of several new openings for Kempinski this summer as the 113-year-old European hospitality icon continues to expand in Asia. New Kempinski hotels located in Cairo in Egypt, Doha in Qatar, New Delhi in India, Bratislava in Slovakia as well as Yinchuan, Guiyang and Huizhou in China are opening within a space of several weeks. Kempinski Hotel and Residences Palm Jumeirah will open in Dubai in December.
Apart from being located in the bustling part of the city, Siam Kempenski offers convenient access as it is close to the soon-to-open airport train link and it is only five minutes' walk away from a BTS skytrain station.
While modern Thai aesthetics dominates the interiors, guests can expect European-style luxury service.
"Business travellers, leisure visitors, Thai residents and expats who are committed to the finer things in life will all be delighted by what we have created here," said Philippe Caretti, interim general manager of the hotel.
To mark the opening, Siam Kimpinski has a "book two nights, get one night free" package, which starts from THB5,2667.67 (US$162) for a Deluxe room. The offer is valid until October 31.
