Langham Hospitality Group has announced an agreement with Canapaya Development to manage a luxury hotel by the banks of Chao Phraya River in Bangkok.
Only ten minutes from Sathorn central business district, the hotel is surrounded by majestic views of the river and city.
The Langham, Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is expected to open in 2021.
“We are delighted to introduce the Langham Hotels and Resorts brand to Bangkok as we have been waiting for the perfect location in this major capital to add to our portfolio,” said Simon Manning, chief sales and marketing officer of Langham Hospitality Group.
“To be right on the banks of the famed Chao Phraya River with its ancient temples, the magnificent Grand Palace and Wat Phra Keaw is a hotelier’s dream.
“Coupled with our award-wining standards and The Langham’s key signature experiences, I am confident The Langham, Bangkok at Chao Phraya River will be an inspiring destination for our guests.”
Led by Bangkok-based firms, P & T Architecture, award-winning PIA Interior Designs, and Belt Collins for landscaping, The Langham, Bangkok, at Chao Phraya River is poised to be the leading luxury hotel in the city.
Featuring classic yet contemporary furnishings, each of the 207 rooms and 43 suites is equipped with The Langham signature Blissful bed and separate bathrooms with rain showers and bathtubs in an urban resort style.
Half of the deluxe rooms will have balconies with a 180-degree view of the Chao Phraya River while the other half will have the view of both the river and the city.
To host Bangkok’s most high-profile weddings, The Langham will have its own exclusive bridal chapel and a bridal suite for the most memorable nuptial events.
There is also an outdoor terrace overlooking the Chao Phraya River for alfresco events.
Bangkok ranks high on the culinary map and The Langham will also live up to the city’s epicurean reputation by offering some of the finest dining experience in the city.
Chuan Spa will also make its debut in Bangkok at The Langham.
The award-winning spa and wellness brand will focus on holistic treatments through integrating the principles of traditional Chinese medicine using the five elemental forces of wood, fire, earth, metal and water to relax and invigorate the body, mind and soul.
A 50 metre Olympic-sized outdoor pool overlooking the Chao Phraya River will also be a key feature in the spa and wellness part of the hotel.
Billion Lai, chief executive officer of Canapaya Development, stated: “Canapaya Development is proud to partner with Langham Hospitality Group to bring the legendary hospitality and heritage of Europe’s first grand hotel and impeccable service to Bangkok.”
