Nestled on the top floor of the prestigious hotel, this extraordinary 800-square-meter duplex suite redefines sophistication, showcasing a remarkable private art collection and an exquisite array of priceless antiques curated by the esteemed Mr William E. Heinecke, Chairman of Minor International and the proud owner of this penthouse sanctuary.
Ascending 44 floors above the vibrant city, the Owner’s Penthouse boasts unrivalled vistas of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club Golf Course and breathtaking sunsets that paint the city’s skyline with a celestial glow.

Among the highlights are a meticulously crafted metal crocodile figure and The Heinecke Collection book, a testament to his adoration for classic cars.
Continuing this artistic odyssey, visitors immerse themselves in a grand living area adorned with rare elegant items. Notable among these treasures is the original costumes worn by the iconic actor Yul Brynner in the legendary Broadway musical “The King and I.” The fusion of contemporary decor and Asian influences is beautifully manifested in a handcrafted Khong Wong glass table, crafted from the traditional Thai musical instrument, and a substantial wooden gong embellished entirely with cinnamon bark.
Indulging in a private dining experience overlooking the mesmerizing cityscape is an invitation to savour the flavours of culinary excellence.

Ascending to the upper level of this duplex haven, guests are granted an extraordinary opportunity to encounter the antique camera invented and utilized by Mr Eberhard Schneider, a pioneering figure in motion picture camera development. This unique artifact, which extensively captured images of Siam a century ago, was generously donated by Mr Schneider’s granddaughter to Mrs Connie, Mr Heinecke’s mother.
Within the elegant confines of the working room, the allure of modern Thai art is brought to life through three exceptional paintings by the renowned Thai National Artist Thawan Duchanee. Photographs and intricate miniature models of planes and sports cars owned by the Heinecke family add a personal touch, creating an intimate connection between art and the owner’s captivating life story.
