The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon

Located at the iconic King Power Mahanakhon building, The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon is the ultimate destination for modern travellers. Comprising 155 rooms and suites, this flagship hotel in Asia has elevated the standard of hospitality in the area.

To conceptualise the uber-social downtown property, Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon and The Standard’s award-winning in-house design team delved into the synergy between the city’s melting pot of cultures and free-form artistic exploration. The resulting social spaces are fresh and intertwined with reinterpretations of cultural cues, such as Marco Brambilla’s video monument to Hollywood dreams and excesses, in the lobby.

Dining at the hotel is also a treat for the senses. With six distinctive dining, drinking and nightlife venues, guests can choose between The Standard Grill, which opens from breakfast until late dinner, and on the 76th floor, the famous Ojo from award-winning Chef Francisco “Paco” Ruano delights the taste buds with his modern take on Mexican dishes. Sky Beach is Bangkok’s highest rooftop bar where hard-hitting cocktails are made using premium spirits. For something comforting, Mott 32 serves delectable Chinese cuisine and The Parlor offers authentic Thai cuisine.
