The Standard to open design-led Asia flagship hotel in Bangkok

Promotion: hotel brand The Standard is set to open a Bangkok outpost in King Power Mahanakhon, featuring bright interiors by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon and The Standard's in-house design team.

Named The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon, the design-led lifestyle hotel in Thailand will open in May 2022 and become The Standard's Asia flagship.

The 155-room hotel is being developed in the pixelated King Power Mahanakhon.

Its interiors, which are being designed by Hayon in collaboration with the brand's in-house designers, are hoped to encapsulate the "unmistakable energy of the Thai capital".

"There is nothing in Bangkok, or the entire region, like what we have created here," said The Standard's executive chairman Amar Lalvani.

"We love the energy, style and culture Bangkok offers and couldn't be more proud to partner with King Power to open our flagship for the region in this awe-inspiring building, in this incredible city."

The 78-storey King Power Mahanakhon was chosen as the host building for the hotel in recognition of its iconic architectural design and setting within Bangkok's central business district.

It is also in close proximity to Bangkok’s Old Town, which the brand said: "has recently become the chosen enclave for the city's dynamic creative community".

The interiors of the hotel will be distinguished by bright colours and fluid shapes. There will also be a mix of art installations and greenery.

These finishes have been developed by Hayon to challenge the usual aesthetic of other luxury hotels in Bangkok.

Hotel rooms will range in size from 40-square-metre guest rooms to a spacious 144-square-metre penthouse.

In addition to the hotel rooms will be a meeting and events room, as well as shops and a gym that will be open to the local community.

Like all other hotels by The Standard, there will also be an outdoor terrace pool and a mix of restaurant, lounge, bar and nightlife venues.

The terrace, described by The Standard as "the highest alfresco sky beach in Bangkok" will have sweeping views of the city.
