Bangkok, 11 September, 2017 – The Raweekanlaya Bangkok is now open in the historic area of the Thai capital, as part of The Wellness Collection by Asset World Hotel, which is a member of TCC Group.
The hotel was originally built in the late 1800’s as the residence of the royal governess of King Rama VI.
The Raweekanlaya Bangkok is a restoration that replicates its 19th century origin with the entire complex expanded to include the adjacent land facing Krung Kasem Road. There are various feature walls across the resort, which have been hand painted or have depictions from the Thai modern history.
Guestrooms at The Raweekanlaya Bangkok reflect a sophisticated interplay between modern comforts and traditional Thai décor of the Rama VI era with artistic elements. Each guestroom has been appointed with a Thai poem originating in the Rattanakosin era.
Out of the 38 guestrooms, 20 rooms are located at the annex building classified as the City Wing. The remaining rooms are located in the inner precinct called the Garden Wing at the main residence building.
The Raweekanlaya Bangkok features over 900 square meters of lush greenery, highlighted by a 120 years old Banyan tree and an organic garden. The hotel’s Imperial Spa offers traditional Thai massage therapies. For culinary experience, The Raweekanlaya Dining focuses on health and sustainability, using healthy and natural ingredients from small scale-farmers plus some products from international artisan producers.
The Raweekanlaya Bangkok is located on Soi Thewet 2, Krung Kasem Road in Bangkok’s Phra Nakon district.
