Le Méridien Bangkok, the art-inspired hotel in the heart of Thailand’s vibrant capital city, has emerged from a stylish refurbishment and is ready to welcome experience seeking travellers back to Bangkok in 2023.
Nestled in the lively Silom district, surrounded by restaurants, bars, nightlife and cultural attractions, Le Méridien Bangkok is the perfect base for curious explorers who want to uncover the upbeat urban vibe of this cosmopolitan city. Patpong, Bangkok’s most famous night market, is on the hotel’s doorstep and the nearby Sala Daeng BTS skytrain and Sam Yan MRT subway stations put all of the city’s iconic attractions – from golden temples to gleaming shopping malls – within easy reach.
Upon arrival at the new-look Le Méridien Bangkok, guests are greeted by I-Jud, the giant white dog statue that has become a local icon. This playful installation reflects the artistic spirit of the Le Méridien brand and creates a charming first impression for international visitors. As guests stroll through the revamped reception area, they will be able to see more mini I-Jud statues dotted around the lobby.
Having checked in, guests can unwind in a collection of fully refreshed room and suites, where modern technology such as touchscreen IP phones, LED Smart TVs and Bluetooth speakers is complemented by an ergonomic design concept with comfy sofas, extra-long working desks, plenty of electrical outlets and large floor-to-ceiling windows that capture colourful views of the city below. Relaxation remains at the forefront of the guest experience, with deep-soaking tubs and separate rain showers helping to soothe the senses after a long journey or a day of discovery.
For even more immersive experiences, The Onsen is a 30-square-metre private bathing area where guests can plunge into mineral-rich water, using precise Japanese formulas that change in harmony with the seasons. Alternatively, SPA by Le Méridien features seven treatment rooms. An outdoor swimming pool is ideal for daytime and evening dips, and the Fitness Centre is furnished with the latest high-tech equipment for energising workouts.
The rejuvenated hotel offers a choice of distinctive dining venues and social hotspots. À la carte local and international snacks and shareable dishes are available throughout the day at Latitude 13 Indoor. A brand-new bar, Tempo, sees mixologists use local plants and herbs to craft high-end cocktails, while Latest Recipe is an international culinary marketplace with all-day menus and regular promotions. Finally, Rolling Ribs Brew Bar & BBQ is a Memphis-style smokehouse that offers finger-licking combos of ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken and more, all washed down with signature cocktails from the Wild West.
For meeting planners, 786 square metres of flexible, naturally-lit function space including a ballroom, meeting room, four boardrooms and foyers can host a wide variety of business events, exhibitions and social gatherings, with large LED screens to bring every occasion to life.
To celebrate the “Month of Love” this February, Le Méridien Bangkok has unveiled (avec amour) by Le Méridien, a new program inspired by the glamour of global travel and the romance of Valentine’s Day. Guests can expect to find splashes of pink and red around the hotel as they toast to the most loving time of the year with a light-hearted twist. Throughout this campaign, couples and best friends can come together for “J’Adore L’Amour,” an elegant afternoon tea with distinctly pink tint. This sophisticated selection of sweet and savoury treats is presented on a chic transparent stand and accompanied by two complimentary pink bubbly cocktails. As an extra special treat, Marriott Bonvoy and Club Marriott members will also enjoy two glasses of sparkling wine.
2023 is the ideal time for exploration. After almost three years of border restrictions, globetrotters can finally satisfy their desire for travel, art and culture. This is the year to make fresh discoveries, uncover hidden gems and be inspired by new surroundings. The newly refreshed Le Méridien Bangkok perfectly captures the spirit of this exciting capital city.
