Waldorf Astoria Bangkok

New York grandeur with Thai hospitality

Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is housed within the 60-story Magnolias Ratchadamri Boulevard, a luxury city-center high-rise. The hotel’s classic design is the masterpiece of acclaimed architect André Fu and New York-based studio AvroKO, who modeled the elegant property after the original Waldorf Astoria New York. Infusing art deco with Thai culture, the result is a splendid combination of brass and marble accented with traditional weaving and silk patterns.

The luxury hotel’s top three floors are dedicated to wining and dining with breathtaking city views. See for yourself between porterhouse bites at the 55th-floor Bull & Bear. Glamorous art deco and art nouveau motifs dominate the interiors, emulating the Waldorf Astoria legacy.

But while this beautiful address may have been influenced by the grandeur of the original Manhattan hotel, its culinary style, spa treatments (the Swedish- and Balinese-inspired Rebalance Massage) and heart-of-town location are proof of a more global feel.
