ONYX Hospitality Group has unveiled a fresh new look for Shama Lakeview Asoke Bangkok, a year after the property was rebranded.

Featuring all-new studios, apartments, lobby, pool terrace and public areas, the property follows an extensive transformation by the developer JR Kyushu Business Development (Thailand). 

Shama is the Sanskrit term for peace and tranquillity. The fresh new interiors conceptualised by Bangkok-based ASC Interior draw inspiration from the nearby Benjakitti Park and Lake which many of the apartments overlook, featuring a calming residential colour palette dominant with blues from the sky and lake, and greens from the park’s trees and shrubs.

Specially-commissioned art, installations and furnishings throughout the property’s communal spaces and its 429 studios and apartments bring in the elements of the nearby park, reflecting the clouds mirrored on the lake’s surface, trees billowing in the breeze and stonework from the pavements.

In a nod to the property developer’s Japanese roots, Shama Lakeview Asoke has also introduced a collection of tatami studios and one-bedroom apartments, each fitted with a raised tatami seating area – ideal for relaxing tea sessions, informal gatherings and lazy afternoon naps.

As guests and residents move through the lobby, they are greeted by a custom Murano glass chandelier of wave-like ripples, serving as a reminder that the serenity of Benjakitti Park and Lake is just a stone’s throw away. The lobby connects to a lounge area with a co-working corner and coffee bar operated by the neighbouring Coffee Club.

In celebration of the reopening, the property’s newly renovated serviced apartments offer 20-per-cent discount off all rates available at for stays between April 1 to May 31. The offer also includes complimentary upgrade to a lake view apartment, with ONYX Rewards members also enjoying double points redemption.
