The First Orient Express Hotel To Open In Bangkok Late 2019

Orient Express

Orient Express redefined rail travel in the 1900s, introducing the 1st sleeper cars linking West to East and delivering unprecedented levels of comfort and dining. For over 135 years, Orient Express inspires authors, artists and film directors and welcomes famous guests. And now, it gets ready to open its first hotel.

Josephine Baker, Albert Einstein, Coco Chanel, Graham Greene, Ernest Hemingway, Marlene Dietrich, and Mata Hari - many celebrities traveled in the Orient Express trains. Agatha Christie made them even more famous with her eponymous novel Murder on the Orient Express, while Albert Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes and James Bond’s From Russia with Love further immortalized the Orient Express name in the popular imagination.

The first Orient Express property will open its doors in the landmark Bangkok building, the King Power Mahanakhon. To be located in the highest skyscraper in the Thai capital, the Orient Express Mahanakhon Bangkok will reflect the brand’s vision to build a collection of prestigious hotels with the multicultural heritage, mystery, and exoticism of Orient Express.

The greatest names in architecture, design, and gastronomy gathered to showcase the brand's unique character at the brand's first hotel property. Esteemed designer Tristan Auer has been tasked with reimagining the Art Deco stylings and plant motifs of the original Orient Express carriages.

The Orient Express Mahanakhon Bangkok will feature 154 rooms including 9 suites and 2 penthouses, as well as an entire floor devoted to wellness including an outdoor pool and jacuzzi plus signature Orient Express Spa by Guerlain. An observation deck on levels 74, 75 and 78 and a rooftop bar will offer breathtaking views, making the King Power Mahanakhon Building the trendiest place in Bangkok, just as the Orient Express was the one to meet the most fascinating people at the beginning of the 20th century!

The hotel will have 2 signature restaurants: Mott 32, which will be bringing an exceptional modern Cantonese dining experience to the city with a contemporary restaurant and cocktail bar and Mahanathi by David Thompson. A Chef known worldwide for his skills and expertise in Thai cuisine and culinary.

The Orient Express Mahanakhon Bangkok will open in the last quarter of 2019, 136 years after the Orient Express took its maiden voyage from Paris.
