Villa de Pranakorn, a boutique hotel in Bangkok’s historic Sam Yot district, has just become a member of Relais & Châteaux, a global luxury hotel and restaurant association. It is the first hotel in the city to join the global brand.
Established in 1954, the brand represents independently run properties and restaurants across the world. “We are extremely excited about this partnership with Villa de Pranakorn. The first hotel in Bangkok in our collection, it is perfectly located in the historic district of the city,” said Philippe Gombert, president of Relais & Châteaux.
Having opened its doors to guests last February, the 47-key hotel is located in the Thai capital’s old quarter. Set around an open-air courtyard pool, the hotel features an urban, minimalist design inspired by the area’s Sino-Portuguese heritage and architecture.
