Thailand: The 80-room Hua Chang Heritage Hotel in downtown Bangkok is set for its launch after a soft opening in January.
Described as a hotel “where classic Siamese motifs blend seamlessly with contemporary design concepts” the property is “inspired by the art and culture of King Rama V-era Thailand and turn-of-the-century Europe”.
The seven-story property offers 24-hour in-room dining, pool bar, a reading area, limousine service and personal butler service. It is the newest development by Baiyoke Group of Hotels, and takes its name from nearby Hua Chang Bridge (Elephant Head Bridge) built during the reign of Rama V.
General manager Sammy Sasaki said: “Hua Chang Heritage Hotel, Bangkok will rekindle the history of Hua Chang Bridge, or Chalermla Fifty-Six, which was built by King Rama V more than one hundred years ago during a period of rapid modernization in Thailand. Our concept of contemporary luxury from a historical perspective, along with unique signature amenities such as Thai-style personal butler service, are certain to please even the most discerning world travelers.”
Piyalert Baiyoke, owner and vice president of Baiyoke Group of Hotels, said: “Hua Chang Heritage Hotel blends superlative amenities with modern technologies to ensure unsurpassed comfort. With great pride we unveil an exclusive urban retreat that’s truly like no other in Bangkok.”
