InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, the world’s premier and most expansive high-end hotel brand, has formally declared the reopening of InterContinental Bangkok.
Known as the city’s most distinguished five-star luxury hotel and situated in Bangkok’s core, the hotel has recently undergone a lavish multimillion-dollar refurbishment and stunning transformation.
Positioned in the heart of Bangkok’s Central Business District, adjacent to the BTS Chidlom Skytrain, InterContinental Bangkok is within walking distance to the city’s primary lifestyle shopping destinations and significant business areas.
For the past twenty years, the hotel has been a fixture in the ‘city of angels,’ establishing itself as a key element of the urban landscape.
Now, its latest multimillion-dollar refurbishment and dramatic revamp has repositioned the InterContinental Bangkok in an unprecedented manner, allowing it to reemerge as a sophisticated grand hotel engineered for modern living.
Stephen Gould, the General Manager of InterContinental Bangkok, proclaimed, “As part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ luxury and lifestyle portfolio, InterContinental Bangkok is one of Thailand’s most premium hotels.”
“Welcoming guests back to InterContinental Life marks a significant milestone for us. During our renovation, we’ve woven in a blend of modern sophistication and Thai heritage inspired by the traditions of Thai welcoming ceremonies backed by world-class service.”
“Our elite network of concierges and colleagues combine local expertise and tradition with modernity to spark joy in our guests’ stay, creating truly exceptional experiences and moments that matter for our guests,” he revealed.

The hotel has risen again, with artistic tributes to Bangkok’s stunning palaces and cultural landmarks, as well as the city’s famed skyline.
