Marriott to open its first Ritz-Carlton hotel in Bangkok

Marriott International will open its first Ritz-Carlton hotel in Bangkok in 2023.

The 259-room hotel is expected to occupy a planned 50-storey tower in the One Bangkok lifestyle development, now rising in the city’s commercial centre.

“We are thrilled to announce plans for our first Ritz-Carlton hotel in the dynamic capital of Thailand, a country where we currently operate two Ritz-Carlton resorts,” said Craig Smith, president and managing director of Asia-Pacific, Marriott International.

“Having a Ritz-Carlton in Bangkok, especially in the exciting One Bangkok district, will be an extraordinary addition to our luxury portfolio for our Marriott Bonvoy loyalty members, tourists, business travellers and local residents who seek the brand’s luxury accommodations, world-class service and culinary expertise.”

Taking up the first 25 floors of the building, the hotel is being designed as an urban resort, with contemporary style and locally influenced design, four distinct restaurants and bars, and fitness facilities.

Plans also include a signature Ritz-Carlton Spa that would feature six treatment rooms, wet lounges, whirlpools, saunas and steam rooms for both guests and locals, alike. The hotel is also slated to include function facilities, as well as a ballroom that would be the largest of its kind in Thailand.
