Le Méridien Bangkok- The art-inspired hotel in the heart of Thailand
Le Méridien Bangkok is inviting culture seekers to embark on compelling explorations of Bangkok’s most creative district with a wealth of classical and contemporary artistic attractions.
Nestled on Surawong Road, the heritage-rich thoroughfare that runs from the city’s lively Silom district to the banks of the Chao Phraya River, Le Méridien Bangkok is surrounded by art galleries, installations and cultural venues. This makes it the perfect base for curious explorers to travel around Bangkok.
From the moment guests step into this newly-reimagined hotel, they are immersed in a world of art and design. At the main entrance stands I-Jud, (or “Dots Dog”) the giant white dog installation that was created by Thai artist Wasinburee Supanichvoraparch and is designed to represent the journey of art. As part of Le Méridien’s ‘Arrival Art’ programme, I-Jud also reflects the playful spirit of the brand and makes a striking first impression.
On Charoen Krung Road, the former Bangkok General Post Office is a vast brutalist building that has been reinvented as a public cultural hub. Home to the Thailand Creative & Design Center (TCDC), it now features 50,000 books, journals and multimedia pieces, as well as exhibition spaces that host inspiring events. Under Le Méridien’s ‘Unlock Art™’ programme, hotel guests can enjoy complimentary access to TCDC by presenting their ‘Discover Unlock Art™ Guest Pass’ (which can be found in every hotel room) upon arrival at the venue. A Gallery Walk also lets visitors uncover a number of independent art galleries in the TCDC precinct or further along the river – a wonderful opportunity to stroll at leisure, investigate the local “sois” (alleyways) and soak up daily life.

Trisara Resort Phuket- The perfect setting for families and friends’ gathering
Trisara, one of Thailand’s finest resorts, is offering families and groups of friends the opportunity to bond in style this summer courtesy of special rates on its signature residences. Trisara is adding sparkle to deals on the showstopping units, all of which feature a private chef and butler.
A hideaway in Phuket’s unspoiled northwestern corner, Trisara (which translates from Sanskrit to ‘the garden in the third heaven’) is regarded as one of the most desirable destinations in Thailand. With each of its luxury suites and villas featuring a pool as well as widescreen ocean views, total privacy is both achievable and desirable.
Perched directly over the property’s private bay, Trisara’s collection of residences — which range in size from two-bed units to multi-bedroom configurations—rank among the most spectacular in Thailand. Its signature two-bedroom villas, for example, which offer exclusive access to an 18-metre infinity pool, are available for a nightly rate starting at USD$2900++. The price includes breakfast and a return airport transfer from Phuket International Airport.
The largest of the residences is Villa Sawan, an eight-bedroom “resort within a resort”. Home to ocean-facing views, lush gardens, and use of a cove with a private beach at the foot of the property, Villa Sawan is the ultimate exclusive escape. The villa also features a home cinema, a well-equipped gym, and spa facilities. The villa also provides an abundance of space, which is perfect for private gatherings, particularly around the main private swimming pool and in the outside lounge and dining areas. It is available during the summer season for a nightly rate starting at USD$8000++. Visit https://trisara.com for more information about this resort.
