9 February, 2022
Opening on 11 May 2022, The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon sets the Thai capital abuzz with the excitement of a new, hip destination featuring world-class design, culinary, entertainment, retail and wellness offerings.
Housed in the landmark King Power Mahanakhon Building, a 78-story mixed-use building that is one of the tallest in Thailand, the hotel is the latest addition to The Standard’s growing global portfolio and will be its Asia flagship.
The 155-room hotel will blend fantasy with reality, with expressive interiors designed by Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon in collaboration with The Standard’s award-winning in-house design team.
“There is nothing in Bangkok, or the entire region, like what we have created here,” says Amar Lalvani, Executive Chairman for Standard International, of the brand’s unrelenting un-standard-ness, which extends from its design to its service and overall experience.
Vibrant colours and fluid shapes will characterise the design, which will be punctuated by evolving art installations and lush greenery that blurs the boundaries between indoors and out. These mark an aesthetic departure from other luxury hotels in the city and help bolster The Standard’s presence in Asia as a formidable hospitality brand that’s ahead of the curve.
Each space throughout the property will be filled with some of the finest European brands of furniture and lighting, in a palette of colours that reflect the buzzy and bold city. Visitors will be greeted by an ensemble of whimsical pendant lighting and tropical greenery that blends into nature-inspired flooring.
Intentional but effortless, this sense of surrealism will also be translated to the rooms ranging from 40 sqm to a sprawling 144 sqm penthouse, the outdoor terrace pool, the many dining establishments and even the 24-hour gym that will offer memberships to the local community.
In The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon, Hayon together with The Standard design team are creating a magical space that will undoubtedly become a destination not just for visitors but for the residents of Bangkok. This is a hotel that will sit perfectly in the heart of an energetic and welcoming city.
