In 2019, AccorHotels will add another prestigious development to their ever-expanding resume. This hotel will be located in the magnificent Mahanakhon tower – the once tallest structure in Thailand. The Mahanakhon is located in the Silom district and has stood since 2016.

As you will see below it already has a wealth of attractions and is a popular building in the heart of Bangkok. In this article we look at this new development – The Orient Express Hotel, and what features it will include!

King Power Extends Appeal of Iconic Structure

The Mahanakhon tower is already packed full with different attractions and businesses. King Power has worked hard to make this iconic structure a worthwhile investment. The inclusion of the Orient Express Hotel should only improve its identity and prestige. The following are some of the things that can already be found in this structure:

King Power Duty-Free & Retail – This shopping centre offers a fantastic variety of tax-free goods. You can purchase typical duty-free goods such as perfume, cosmetics and chocolates. Furthermore, there is a great selection of fashion and electronic goods.

Observation Deck & Skywalk – This is the main attraction of the tower and well-known around the world. At the top of the Mahanakhon, there is an observation deck. This provides unrivalled views of the Bangkok cityscape. Furthermore, there is a huge glass skywalk you can dare to walk over – you can slip on some booties and tiptoe over the glass 314m in the air – the feeling is both exciting and terrifying!

Mahanakhon Square – Outside the impressive building there is a beautiful square. This square is a public space and is often used for festivals, events and even fashion shows.

In short, the Mahanakhon already has a great deal to offer and is one of the premier skyscrapers in Bangkok. 

The Orient Express Hotel Summary

AccorHotels are a renowned brand throughout the world. They have a plethora of high-quality luxury hotels. The Orient Express brand centres on prestige and giving visitors a world-class experience. It also draws on the myths of the Far East that surround this legendary name. The following are some quick facts about the Orient Express Hotel:

– Due to open this year in the last quarter of 2019
– Has cost over 100 million BHT to construct
– Predominantly aimed at high-end markets and oversees business people
– 154 rooms including several expensive penthouses and suites
– Will also include a wellness area dedicated to recreation and relaxation

The style of the hotel is expected to be lavish and extravagant. This mirrors the original style and luxury of the Orient Express train that brought us the world’s first sleeper cars and prestigious rail travel. It will also feature two signature restaurants – Mott 32 and Mahanathi.

To extend on what is meant by the “wellness” area – The Orient Express Hotel will feature a whole floor dedicated to recreational pursuits. This will include a fantastic outdoor pool, a Jacuzzi, and even a special signature Orient Express Spa!

The hotel will cater towards wealthy foreign business people from overseas. It will mainly serve a high-end market, but also attract tourists and travellers too who want to experience the luxury Bangkok has to offer. It will certainly boost the importance and relevance of the Mahanakhon tower and the fortunes of King Power.
