Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien Hotel features four individually-themed, two-bedroom Royal Suites echoing the classic aesthetics and contemporary home comfort, much to the delight of culture-savvy international travelers in search of something more. This is a place where aristocratic Thai taste fuses with cutting-edge conveniences and a luxurious modern style.
Like royal apartments centuries ago, each exquisite suite evokes nobility while also offering every modern luxury and amenity. Though evidently harkening back to glorious bygone days, as if in a time warp, everything is fresh and new. The precise architectural details, palettes, fabrics and furnishings are uncompromisingly authentic, yet the spaces are equally meticulously fitted with the likes of flat screen TV, feature bathrooms and WiFi/LAN broadband internet.
Royal Pimai Theme Suite offers a bright, plush and refreshing feel inspired by the grand 10th century Pimai Temple, built during the Khmer Dynasty. Ruern Thai Theme Suite is beautifully paneled in wood and evokes the interiors of a Thai house from the prosperous Ayudhya period. Vimarn Siam Theme Suite draws on the architectural elements of the summer palace of King Rama V that embraces both 19th century European and oriental décor. And the grandeur of Ratanakosin Theme Suite pays tribute to the original Bangkok, founded by King Rama I at the start of the Chakri Dynasty.
