Rosewood Bangkok, a visually striking, ultra-luxury property on Ploenchit Road in Bangkok’s prime central business and retail district, will open 31 March 2019, marking the second Thailand property for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® and the dazzling urban sister to Rosewood Phuket, opened in 2017. An amalgam of contemporary sophistication and Thai heritage, Rosewood Bangkok will bring to life the brand’s hallmark A Sense of Place® philosophy through architectural design and carefully curated décor, spa and dining experiences. Reservations are now being accepted with opening offers available at rosewoodhotels.com. The 30-story standalone property will help reshape the Bangkok skyline by occupying two connecting high-rise structures that create a modern tribute to the Thai spirit. Its contemporary form is inspired by the wai -- the graceful Thai gesture of palms pressed together in greeting. The hotel will be conveniently connected to the BTS Station amidst a luxury enclave of embassies, new office towers and upscale malls. The hotel is celebrating its upcoming opening by launching its official @rosewoodbangkok social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram. The Facebook platform debuts on 19 February with the distinctive #WaiBangkok campaign showcasing the dynamism, creativity and style of the Thai capital. Residents and travelers will be invited to share their own new perspectives of Bangkok inspired by Rosewood Bangkok’s entry to the city. “Rosewood Bangkok represents an exciting new expression of ultra-luxury hospitality in Bangkok,” says Thomas Harlander, the hotel’s managing director. “It will be a symbol of the emergence of the country’s capital as a hub of creative style and design for the region. Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy will also be thoughtfully interpreted in modern yet authentically Thai fashion through the entire hotel, from its design to all its experiences -- we aim to provide a portal to all the many fascinating sides of this captivating capital and culture.” The “#WaiBangkok” campaign, 19 February to 31 May, will feature a photo series by distinguished photographers Tum Chanipol Kusolcharttum and Scott Woodward. Tum, better known as Rockkhound, is one of Thailand's best street photographers and will kickstart the campaign with his perspective of Bangkok’s dynamic charisma. Scott Woodward, a Canadian seasoned documentary photographer whose works are often seen on the glossy pages of National Geographic, Condé Nast Traveler and New York Times, will contribute a series of photos of Bangkok that illustrate why this City of Angels so attracts him. The visually stunning campaign will invite people to share a different and more contemporary side of Thailand’s capital and showcase their favorite hidden gems to illustrate “why” they love Bangkok. Participants will post their own fresh and compelling images of the city on Rosewood Bangkok’s official social media accounts using the hashtag #WaiBangkok and tagging Rosewood Bangkok’s Facebook or Instagram account @RosewoodBangkok. The winner will receive a THB100,000 credit to spend at the hotel.
