The Standard has launched a 155-room hotel in the Thai capital of Bangkok, its flagship property in Asia.
The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon is the result of an alliance between Standard International and King Power Group.
It is located in the King Power Mahanakhon building in downtown Bangkok.
According to The Standard, the hotel will showcase a blend of the iconic structure’s architecture and the brand’s “anything but standard” ethos.
The uber-social property was designed by Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon along with The Standard’s in-house design team.
The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon features meeting areas, and six spaces for dining, drinking and nightlife, among other amenities.
The hotel’s The Standard Grill is an American-style brasserie that functions both as a breakfast outlet and a social hotspot at night.
Another dining space is Ojo, a Mexican-inspired restaurant located on the 76th floor of the building.
Sky Beach, Bangkok’s highest rooftop bar, is located on the 78th floor and offers 360-degree views.
Besides, the hotel includes the Mott 32 Bangkok open-air terrace, and a tea room named Tease where guests are treated to alcohol-infused brews, savoury and sweet treats.
Guests can also visit The Parlor that serves Thai cuisine and cocktails.
Additionally, the hotel hosts talks and workshops that include astrology sessions, live performances and bingo nights.
The hotel and its open spaces are designed keeping the local culture in mind.
Standard International chairman Srettha Thavisin said: “We are incredibly thrilled about the launch of The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon in Thailand.
“This iconic flagship hotel of The Standard represents an extraordinary phenomenon in the hospitality industry not only in Asia, but globally as well.”
