Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok hosted a feast of sight, sound and taste to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Kempinski Hotels.
Filling up the spectacular hotel lobby, recently recognised as the Best International Hotel Lobby Interior by International Property Awards, were distinguished personalities, celebrities and media. But before they could enjoy the sumptuous culinary specialities and free-flowing drinks, the guests were invited out to the portico where a huge stage had been set up in the gardens.
A digital mapping presentation on the story of Kempinski Hotels, from its humble beginnings as a family-run business in 1897 to an international collection of 80 luxury hotels and residences in 34 countries with another 26 under development, was projected onto the 15-metre-high, half-dome portico ceiling. Guests were then treated to non-stop music highlighted by Toby & Joy, a talented jazz duo who have performed around the world and now entertain nightly from Wednesday to Saturday at the hotel’s trendy Firefly Bar. Rounding off the evening was DJ Karn who spun the discs until late.
As Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group, Kempinski Hotels has a reputation for excellence. From historic palaces to contemporary design hotels, each one showcases the best in services and facilities fine-tuned from classic European traditions combined with modern demands. Sindhorn Kempinski Hotel Bangkok is the second Kempinski in Thailand and is located within the lush Sindhorn Village development in the heart of the city, next to Lumphini Park, the biggest park in the city. It has 274 rooms, with sizes starting from 66 sq m, the largest when compared to other similar hotels in Bangkok. Among its range of facilities and amenities is the newly opened Sindhorn Wellness by Resense, a 4,000-sq m spa and wellness centre that offers a green retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.
