Bangkok boutique hotel takes top regional award
Shanghai Mansion Bangkok was named the ‘Southeast Asia Best City Boutique Hotel 2017’ at the 7th annual World Boutique Hotel Awards gala dinner and ceremony held in London earlier this month.
Situated in the heart of Bangkok’s historic Chinatown, Shanghai Mansion is a nearly century-old building that served as the city’s first Chinese Opera House, when it was regularly visited by the Thai Royal Family.
After years of neglect, Burasari Group converted the landmark building into Bangkok Chinatown’s first boutique hotel. The hotel immediately created buzz and excitement for its 1930s Shanghai and Art Deco inspired interiors.
The World Boutique Hotel Awards is the first and only international organisation exclusively dedicated to recognizing excellence among luxury boutique hotels.
Unlike large chain brands, luxury boutique hotels are defined as style-driven properties that provide an intimate environment, distinctive experiences and intuitive guest services.
Winners are selected by a panel of judges comprised of travel industry experts and luxury travel journalists.
