Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok opens doors to guests in city’s urban oasis, Lumphini Park


IHG® Hotels & Resorts (IHG), one of the world’s leading  hotel companies, brings Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ signature heartfelt service and distinctive  design to the heart of Thailand with the opening of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok

Located in Bangkok’s Langsuan area, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok offers convenient access to  prime districts such as Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam and Chidlom, and serene views of the tranquil  Lumphini Park – one of the city’s largest green spaces. 

MAA-LAI Lounge

The hotel takes its name after Maa-lai, the traditional Thai floral garland symbolic of welcome,  good health and respect to honour guests, families and loved ones. This art form has inspired  many contemporary interpretations and resonates perfectly with Kimpton in Bangkok, where age old traditions take on a modern edge.

Kimpton spaces and experiences centre on its guests, offering inspiring design that evokes  curiosity, to forward-thinking flavours that feed the soul. The hotel’s design narrative was brought  to life by P49 Deesign and fuses storied Thai history with the urban intensity of the city, by  mirroring the relentless tempo of life in the old capital through hand woven Thai textiles and  echoing the edgy eclecticism of modern Bangkok. This resonates through raw concrete, oversized  furnishings and metallic touches, and translates into inspired design from the hotel public areas  to restaurants and bars, and the artfully designed guest rooms and private residences. 

All 362 of the hotel’s rooms and suites – including 131 serviced residences – are the epitome of  design-led luxury, each thoughtfully designed with bespoke amenities and inspiring décor,  promising an immersive experience for all who stay. Whether guests are looking to relax in the  comfortable 48sqm Deluxe Room after sightseeing and shopping or enjoy the whirlpool jacuzzi in  the spacious 320sqm Celebrity Suite for an anniversary treat, there are layers of detail at every  turn.

Bespoke HARNN bathroom amenities, a VIFA Helsinki sound system, robes by Christian Develter  for Tube Gallery and a curated personal bar stocked with bottled cocktails by LAIBA and artisanal  local snacks are just a few highlights of the luxuriously appointed rooms. Suite occupants also  enjoy access to the Maa-Lai Lounge on the 30th floor, where they can savour the sight of lush  Lumphini Park and Bangkok’s characteristic skyscrapers from dawn to dusk.  

CRAFT Bar

First-class food and beverage programmes play a big part in Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants  across the world. Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok boasts four distinct and immersive dining venues.  CRAFT is a haven for brew lovers with a unique selection of local and international single origin  coffee and coffee blends, beer and cocktails, while Stock.Room elevates the neighbourhood  grocerant concept with seasonal pop-up kitchens serving Thai street eats to have on site or take  home. Sophisticated cocktail bar, Ms.Jigger, presents narrative-driven cocktails while Bar.Yard hosts a rooftop barbecue with tropical drinks, farm-to-plate comfort grills, DJs and stunning city  skyline views.  

The hotel’s lifestyle programming – part of Kimpton’s DNA – delivers memorable experiences;  starting with a morning kickstart coffee and tea, to yoga lessons with breathtaking views from level  41 and Kimpton’s Social Hour, where the brand’s vision to enable human connection comes to  life as guests mingle with locals. The hotel adopts Kimpton’s industry-leading pet-friendly attitude,  and provides all four-legged friends their own amenities and menu. 

The amaranth spa by HARNN

With connection and wellness top of mind, the GYM provides professional-led nutrition  consultation, high-intensity workout classes and zen stretches, while the amaranth spa by  HARNN is a sanctuary of serenity with nature-inspired spa treatments, manicures and pedicures.  Guests can also enjoy a refreshing dip in the hotel’s outdoor pool which overlooks the sprawling  green park.
