The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel is a five-star hotel in the heart of downtown Bangkok. It’s located on the grounds of a former royal residence known as Kandhavas Palace on tree-lined Wireless Road. Kandhavas was the palace of Princess Valaya Alongkorn, daughter of Chulalongkorn, King Rama V (1853 – 1910) and the grand-aunt of King Maha Vajiralongkorn, Rama X.
The iconic 29-storey Athenee Hotel is renowned as one of the most prestigious addresses in the city. With its engaging blend of Thai and European style, guests are assured a stay of luxury and refinement enriched by memorable culinary journeys at award-winning restaurants, and the discovery of authentic local treasures in a captivating city.
Renowned as one of Bangkok’s most impressive venues for meetings and events, The Athenee Hotel includes the multi-functional Atheneum Meeting Rooms and Lounge for business events and social gatherings, and Pimarn Siam Hall for glamorous wedding and banquets. The hotel also holds the distinction of being the first hotel in the world to achieve ISO 20121 certification for planning and delivering sustainable events.
The Athenee has also become known as an Epicurean Hub because of its eight food & beverage outlets.
