IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG) has now brought Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ signature heartfelt service and distinctive design to the heart of Thailand with the opening of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok. Located in Bangkok’s Langsuan area, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok offers convenient access to prime districts such as Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam and Chidlom, and serene views of the tranquil Lumphini Park — one of the city’s largest green spaces.
The hotel takes its name after Maa-lai, the traditional Thai floral garland symbolic of welcome, good health and respect to honour guests, families and loved ones. This art form has inspired many contemporary interpretations and resonates perfectly with Kimpton in Bangkok, where age-old traditions take on a modern edge.
Kimpton spaces and experiences centre on its guests, offering inspiring design that evokes curiosity, to forward-thinking flavours that feed the soul. The hotel’s design narrative was brought to life by P49 Deesign and fuses storied Thai history with the urban intensity of the city, by mirroring the relentless tempo of life in the old capital through hand woven Thai textiles and echoing the edgy eclecticism of modern Bangkok. This resonates through raw concrete, oversized furnishings and metallic touches, and translates into inspired design from the hotel public areas to restaurants and bars, and the artfully designed guest rooms and private residences.
All 362 of the hotel’s rooms and suites — including 131 serviced residences — are the epitome of design-led luxury, each thoughtfully designed with bespoke amenities and inspiring décor, promising an immersive experience for all who stay.
“With our doors now open, we are excited to introduce an approachable luxury experience fuelled by my team championing heartfelt, human connections. Whether it is modern rooms with bespoke amenities, immersive dining destinations or curated events, or simply our heartfelt service and dedication, we have everything we need to deliver the first Kimpton hotel in South East Asia,” said Patrick Both, general manager of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok.
