InterContinental Bangkok is pleased to announce the completion of an extensive, US$25.9 million renovation to the property’s interior and exterior. The hotel’s comprehensive upgrades and additions include the refurbishment of every guest room and suite, all dining and entertainment venues and the sky-high Spa InterContinental and Infinity Fitness center with panoramic views of Bangkok. The Club InterContinental Lounge on the 37th floor and the free-form rooftop pool terrace are both new to the hotel and offer the same spectacular views of the city skyline.
Upon arrival, guests will find a reconfigured driveway and a new glass-covered entryway at street level and a completely transformed hotel lobby just inside, consisting of clean lines and subtle textures that enhance the traditional Thai motifs throughout. The hotel lobby also features a contemporary crystal chandelier and a new Concierge Lounge, the first of its kind in Thailand, where guests can plan their itineraries with the help of the hotel’s multi-lingualConcierge team and Chief Concierge Athipol Soonthornsingh.
Consistently ranked as a leading hotel in Bangkok for its innovative restaurant and bar concepts, InterContinental Bangkok has added yet another first-rate dining concept, the Grossi Trattoria and Wine Bar – a partnership with Guy Grossi, Melbourne-based Australian restaurateur, author and celebrity chef – which brings true family-style authentic Italian dining to the city. Also new to the hotel is a gourmet chocolate and shop confectionery, Choc!, which allows guests to view the entire chocolate-making process.
Alongside existing venues such as Summer Palace for elegant Cantonese dining and Fireplace Grill where prime cuts and fine wines have been specialities for more than 40 years, InterContinental Bangkok now features the entirely redesigned Espresso restaurant for international buffets and an innovative Sunday Brunch concept. The hotel also has a new location for The Deli, a popular neighborhood favorite for gourmet light meals, snacks and refreshing beverages. A new element to the revamped Balcony Lounge is the Humidor, Bangkok’s first authentic cigar bar.
