The Chatrium Grand Bangkok unfolds in the pulsating heart of Bangkok. This property features 625 keys and two buildings with 32 storeys.

The design and functionality of the project manifest contemporary aesthetics, durability, and easy maintenance, in alignment with Chatrium's brand standards. The design narrative is anchored in the concept of "Thai Splendid", a fusion of Thai culture and modern architectural style. The rich warm, gold tones of the main lobby and reception area, and the handcrafted artwork wall serve as a welcoming Thai greeting to the guests. The lobby lounge embodies Thai stories through traditional elements, presented in modern interpretations. Gold accents and marble textures add to the ambiance, crafting a space that is both welcoming and culturally rich. The all-day dining venue, under the "Krung Thep Fusion" theme, brings together an assortment of international cuisines.

The project's design brilliance extends further into the dining area, which is partitioned into three sections using banquet and screen dividers. Traditional Thai fabric patterns by Jim Thompson lend a cultural touch to the decor. Furthermore, the project team collaborated with Korakot, a renowned Thai artist known for sustainable art, thereby integrating the essence of Thai artistry into the dining atmosphere.

The creative use of Thai motifs in a modern style, innovative space usage and the integration of information technology, all testify to the project's commitment to deliver an attractive and sustainable hotel service.

The space planning, choice of materials and the flow of usage in each function were developed after extensive customer group studies. This research-oriented approach enabled us to create designs that not only meet hotel standards but also cater to the specific needs of the guests. By showcasing Thai culture through details and material selection, guests are invited to fully immerse themselves in an authentic cultural experience.
