The refurbished 374 guestrooms and suites at The Athenee Hotel will incorporate elements of local culture and royal heritage. Classic furniture, a sophisticated palette of white, grey and maroon, and elegant Thai motifs on fabrics will be enriched by the renowned Luxury Collection bed, contemporary comforts such as an illy espresso capsule machine, and the latest wired and wireless technology. The Royal Club floor suites have also been redecorated using royal blue and grey.

“We are thrilled that we will soon be unveiling the The Athenee Hotel and inviting guests to immerse themselves in unrivalled levels of luxury and refinement,” said ChooLeng Goh, General Manager. “Combining the best of contemporary refinements with a distinct sense of place, The Athenee Hotel is set to become one of the most prestigious addresses in this intriguing city.”

In addition to the refurbished guestrooms and suites, The Athenee Hotel project includes a refreshed design and layout of The Rain Tree Café with the addition of the period-styled Valaya Room, where guests can enjoy a leisurely breakfast or private gathering, The Secret Garden and The Bakery.

The Athenee Hotel’s outdoor pool area and function space on the 4th floor have also been redesigned as a tranquil oasis in the heart of downtown Bangkok. Located on the 6th floor, the multi-functional Atheneum Meeting Rooms and Lounge will provide a perfect venue for business events and social gatherings, enhanced by themed coffee break with cuisine inspired by the Princess Valaya Alongkorn’s global travel.

The Athenee Hotel holds the distinction of being the first hotel in the world to achieve ISO 20121 certification for planning and delivering sustainable events.
