Following an extensive redesign and refurbishment, the iconic Plaza AthÃ©nÃ©e Bangkok, A Royal MÃ©ridien Hotel has revealed a new look and name. Now called The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok, the opulent property features a blend of contemporary and authentic Thai design elements that reflects the buildingâ€™s heritage as the former royal residence of the late Princess Valaya Alongkorn, daughter of Chulalongkorn, King Rama V and the aunt of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Rama IX.
The refurbished 374 guestrooms at The Athenee Hotel incorporate elements of local culture and royal heritage. The Royal Club floor suites have also been redecorated using royal blue and grey.
The Rain Tree CafÃ© has been given a new design and layout, plus a new Valaya Room where guests can enjoy a leisurely breakfast or private gathering. Also new are The Secret Garden and The Bakery.
The Athenee Hotel outdoor pool area and function space on the fourth floor have been redesigned as a tranquil oasis in the heart of downtown Bangkok.
Located on the sixth floor, the multi-functional Atheneum Meeting Rooms and Lounge provide the perfect venue for stimulating business events and memorable social gatherings, enhanced by themed coffee break with cuisine inspired by the Princess Valaya Alongkornâ€™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.
