Feb 8, 2022

Making its debut back in October 2020, the Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, as part of IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG), one of the world’s leading hospitality companies, is a fashion-forward, health-conscious, and design-centric luxury lifestyle hotel, setting out to provide a highly personal, and highly bespoke experience. The hotel takes its name after Maa-lai, the traditional Thai floral garland which is a symbol of welcome, good health and respect to 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.

Nestled in the heart of the Langsuan area, the hotel features 362 rooms and is equipped with cutting-edge yet sleek facilities and services. Guests can look forward to two restaurants with the signature Kimpton flair; Stock.Room and Ms. Jigger, as well as CRAFT; a coffee and brews social hub and Bar.Yard, a rooftop bar.

Located in the heart of the ever-buzzing Bangkok, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok offers convenient access to prime districts such as Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam and Chidlom, without compromising the sense of peace and calmness amidst its greenery and serene views of the tranquil Lumphini Park. 

Kimpton spaces proudly showcase inspiring design that evokes curiosity, to forward-thinking flavors that feed the soul. The hotel’s design narrative was curated, based on Thai history with the urban intensity of the city, by mirroring the 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 accommodation.

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. Whether guests are looking to relax in the comfortable 48sqm Essential 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. 

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 neighborhood grocerant concept with seasonal pop-up kitchens serving Thai street eats to have on-site or take home. The cozy lounge, Ms.Jigger features a curated cocktail experience paired with delectable Italian cuisine 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 breath-taking 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.

Apart from the well-thought initiatives by the hotel, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok has also partnered up with luxury global brands to create inspiring collaborations, such as Wonderfruit; an annual arts, music and lifestyle festival, LUSH and Charlotte Tilbury; ones of the world’s leading cosmetic brands. Also, when it comes to supporting local businesses, the hotel believes in cherishing and helping elevate Thai names and products. Teaming up with local HARNN Heritage Spa and Biologique Recherche, our on-site amaranth spa by HARNN focuses on harnessing the energy flow by using organic ingredients, designed to indulge and revive. Like the timeless, ever-growing flower amaranth and the ever-flowing energy stone amaranth, the spa haven evokes a sense of calm serenity in each five of its treatment rooms. On the fashion side, Kimpton Maa-lai Bangkok also collaborates with the internationally renowned artist, Christian Develter and the Thai fashion house, Tube Gallery in designing the bathrobe used in all the guest rooms. The hotel also hosted a stylish fashion shooting of 2020 Resort Wear collection from Develter x Tube Gallery.

Since the opening, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok has already been awarded numerous international recognitions, including the Best Hotel Interior for Thailand 2021 by Asia Pacific Property Awards, Tripadvisor 2021 Traveler’s Choice Award, Best New Hotel by Travel + Leisure (India), Silver Award for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design by SCG and Global Winner for Luxury New Hotel Spa by World Luxury Spa Awards.
