Neighbourhood

Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok is located in the heart of Bangkok’s premier shopping and entertainment district and within easy reach of the BTS Skytrain at the Siam Interchange Station (in front of Siam Paragon Shopping Centre). The hotel provides a direct access to Siam Paragon through the sky bridge located on Floor two of the Royal Wing.

The property has been built in an important part of the city. The ground where the hotel stands today used to be part of the Lotus Pond Palace (Sra Pathum Palace), commissioned by King Mongkut or King Rama IV (made famous to Westerners by the story “The King and I”) as a retreat palace outside the city. This was once the home of Prince Mahidol, grandfather of the present king, His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, and is now the royal residence of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, the King’s daughter and the crown princess of Thailand.

Size and style:

Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok is a resort-style city hotel. The hotel features 401 contemporary rooms and suites, including 21 rooms with direct pool access.

A total of approximately 4,000 art pieces including paintings, photographs, ceramic pieces, sculptures, installations and antiques have been carefully selected over four years of searching across Thailand, and have been integrated into the hotel’s overall design to add elegance to the refined atmosphere of this beautiful hotel. This unique art collection expresses the vitality, personality and culture of Thailand. An area which outstandingly displays both the richness of Thai art and the motif of the décor is the Lobby. Besides the 14-metre high pillars, guests are greeted by impressive brass lamp cones or wall sconces, formed like the decorative fingernails of northern traditional dancers of Thailand. A pattern is punched into the brass sheets that depicts a lotus bloom in splashing water. The light of the lamp shines through the pattern like shadow-play in the front while at the same time light from the pattern reflects on the limestone pillars behind. Two hundred and fifty of these wall sconces are strategically distributed throughout the property.

Shopaholics will be dazzled by the more than 200,000 square metres of retail and lifestyle space at Siam Paragon, Siam Center, MBK Shopping Mall, Central World and Siam Discovery. Culture connoisseurs can admire contemporary arts at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre or explore a local experience by visiting the Jim Thomson Thai House Museum and Baan Krua Muslim Thai Silk Village, the birthplace of Thai silk’s emergence to global renown. Lastly, he shares a hidden gem which allows a peek into the history of Thailand’s Chakri dynasty; the Queen Savang Vadhana Museum in Sra Pathum Palace.
