Having undergone a complete transformation, Plaza Athenee Bangkok, A Royal Meridien has now emerged as The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok. Inspired by the life and travels of Princess Valaya Alongkorn, a daughter of Chulalongkorn, King Rama V (1853 – 1910) and an aunt of the late King Rama IX Bhumibol Adulyadej, the opulent reinvention of the hotel effectively redefines Bangkok as a destination, not only in terms of its location but its history and culture.

Standing in the grounds of the princess's former royal residence since 2004 and operated since as a Royal Meridien, following its extensive refurbishment, the hotel will be formally elevated to the status of a Luxury Collection Hotel on 6 October 2017. Everything is ready to welcome guests, whose first impressions will be of a grand staircase radiating beneath the sparkle of bespoke chandeliers. Throughout the hotel, guests will find themselves immersed in an engaging blend of Thai and European styles united in the spirit of the princess.

"The Athenee Hotel is a complete metamorphosis out of its previous version, while retaining all the elements that made it the most loved hotel in Thai society. We are excited to partner with Marriott International, who will manage the hotel under the prestigious Luxury Collection brand." said Nishant Grover, Chief Operating Officer of Asset World Corporation.

Mr. Karl Hudson, Area Vice President - Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmar of Marriott International, added that: "In refurbishing and rebranding this property to become a Luxury Collection, the hotel embarks on a new era offering guests unique perspectives and experiences both of Thailand and international-standard luxury. The stage is set to write the next glorious chapter."

Mr. Rajeev Menon, Chief Operating Officer Asia Pacific excluding Greater China, Marriott International Inc., further ventured that: "Meticulous planning and uncanny inspiration has gone into every stage of this remarkable hardware transformation which the design world has justly bestowed its Best Hotel Interior Thailand seal of approval. And moreover, the software, our personalised services and hospitality, have been recalibrated accordingly.
