IHG® Hotels & Resorts (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, brings Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ signature heartfelt service and distinctive design to the heart of Thailand with the opening of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok.
Located in Bangkok’s Langsuan area, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok offers convenient access to prime districts such as Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam and Chidlom, and serene views of the tranquil Lumphini Park – one of the city’s largest green spaces.
The hotel takes its name after Maa-lai, the traditional Thai floral garland symbolic of welcome, good health and respect to honour guests, families and loved ones. This art form has inspired many contemporary interpretations and resonates perfectly with Kimpton in Bangkok, where age- old traditions take on a modern edge.
Kimpton spaces and experiences centre on its guests, offering inspiring design that evokes curiosity, to forward-thinking flavours that feed the soul. The hotel’s design narrative was brought to life by P49 Deesign and fuses storied Thai history with the urban intensity of the city, by mirroring the relentless tempo of life in the old capital through hand woven Thai textiles and echoing the edgy eclecticism of modern Bangkok. This resonates through raw concrete, oversized furnishings and metallic touches, and translates into inspired design from the hotel public areas to restaurants and bars, and the artfully designed guest rooms and private residences.
All 362 of the hotel’s rooms and suites – including 131 serviced residences – are the epitome of design-led luxury, each thoughtfully designed with bespoke amenities and inspiring décor, promising an immersive experience for all who stay. Whether guests are looking to relax in the comfortable 48sqm Deluxe Room after sightseeing and shopping or enjoy the whirlpool jacuzzi in the spacious 320sqm Celebrity Suite for an anniversary treat, there are layers of detail at every turn.
Bespoke HARNN bathroom amenities, a VIFA Helsinki sound system, robes by Christian Develter for Tube Gallery and a curated personal bar stocked with bottled cocktails by LAIBA and artisanal local snacks are just a few highlights of the luxuriously appointed rooms. Suite occupants also enjoy access to the Maa-Lai Lounge on the 30th floor, where they can savour the sight of lush Lumphini Park and Bangkok’s characteristic skyscrapers from dawn to dusk.
First-class food and beverage programmes play a big part in Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants across the world. Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok boasts four distinct and immersive dining venues. CRAFT is a haven for brew lovers with a unique selection of local and international single origin coffee and coffee blends, beer and cocktails, while Stock.Room elevates the neighbourhood grocerant concept with seasonal pop-up kitchens serving Thai street eats to have on site or take home. Sophisticated cocktail bar, Ms.Jigger, presents narrative-driven cocktails while Bar.Yard hosts a rooftop barbecue with tropical drinks, farm-to-plate comfort grills, DJs and stunning city skyline views.
The hotel’s lifestyle programming – part of Kimpton’s DNA – delivers memorable experiences; starting with a morning kickstart coffee and tea, to yoga lessons with breathtaking views from level 41 and Kimpton’s Social Hour, where the brand’s vision to enable human connection comes to life as guests mingle with locals. The hotel adopts Kimpton’s industry-leading pet-friendly attitude, and provides all four-legged friends their own amenities and menu.
With connection and wellness top of mind, the GYM provides professional-led nutrition consultation, high-intensity workout classes and zen stretches, while the amaranth spa by HARNN is a sanctuary of serenity with nature-inspired spa treatments, manicures and pedicures. Guests can also enjoy a refreshing dip in the hotel’s outdoor pool which overlooks the sprawling green park.
“Bringing Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok to life has been a true labour of love for many, With our doors now open, we are excited to introduce an approachable luxury experience fuelled by my team championing heartfelt, human connections. Whether it is modern rooms with bespoke amenities, immersive dining destinations or curated events, or simply our heartfelt service and dedication, we have everything we need to deliver the first Kimpton hotel in South East Asia.” said Patrick Both, General Manager, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok.
Bookings are now available for stays at Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok through www.kimptonmaalaibangkok.com. Room rates start from USD$300 for a deluxe room.

Cartier, one of theworld’sleading luxury Maisons, has joined The Lion’s Share Fund, an award-winning and groundbreaking initiative that unites brands, conservationists and consumers to tackle the crisis in nature, biodiversity and climate.
Led by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a coalition ofbusinesses and UN partners, the innovative Fund aims to raise over $100 million per year within the next five years to halt biodiversity loss and protect habitats by asking brands to contribute 0.5% of their media spend every time an animal is featured intheir advertisements.
Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator, said: “Wildlife and biodiversity underpin the well-being, safety, andresilience of all societies. Yet, one million animal and plant species are at risk of extinction in the comingdecades due to human activity. The COVID-19 crisis is a stark reminder that we ignore our disruption of natureat our peril. But the crisis showed the potential of humans to act collectively to address a shared global challenge. Leveraging the power of creativity and partnerships, The Lion’s Share idea is as fascinating as the far-reaching impact it will have. The revenue generated and the new audiences reached by this ambitious and unique initiative will make a real and lasting effect on the future of our planet and the animals we share it with."
The beauty of the natural world has always been a source of inspiration and creativity for Cartier’s timeless pieces,” said Cyrille Vigneron, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cartier International. “As citizens of the world, we believe it is our duty to protect its biodiversity and make an impact on wildlife conservation. This means enhancing Cartier’s support for innovative partnerships such as ‘The Lion’s Share Fund’ and joining forces to preserve the world’s natural heritage for future generations.
“Launched in September 2018, the Fund has helped the Niassa National Reserve in Mozambique to eliminate elephant poaching, by improving critical radio systems for law enforcement officers protecting wildlife. It has also co-financed the purchase of land for endangered orangutans, elephants and tigers in North Sumatra, Indonesia, and is expanding its work, creating an all-female team of forest rangers and the island’s first rhino sanctuary. In February following the devastating bushfires in Australia, The Lion’s Share Fund issued two small grants to support wildlife conservation, including efforts to treat and rehabilitate injured wildlife throughout New South Wales and protect the Kangaroo Island Dunnart from going extinct.
In response to COVID-19 and following a call for proposals, The Lion’s Share will be supporting initiatives in communities dependent on wildlife-based tourism. According to the World Travel and Tourism Council, the wildlife tourism sector supported over 21.8 million jobs, many in rural communities in 2018. Through wildlife tourism, communities directly benefit from wildlife, providing economic empowerment and incentivizing biodiversity protection. The plight of communities who are dependent on wildlife tourism is dire with sudden loss of jobs, income and livelihoods, which also disincentivize conservation-oriented land and natural resource management. The Lion’ Share small grants will be disbursed to non-profit organizations in developing countries seeking funds for initiatives that demonstrate innovative local-level action and build the resilience of communities whose livelihoods depend on wildlife tourism.
Animals appear in approximately 20 per cent of all advertisements in the world, yetdespite this, animals do not always receive the support they deserve. The Lion’s Share gives brands the opportunity to take urgent and significant action and play their part in protecting our planet.

Chloé latest scent fragrance Rose Tangerine
Chloé perfumers Sidonie Lancesseur and Michel Almairac created this latest scent, Rose Tangerine. As always, it features the emblematic Chloé note: a bright, fresh, clear rose that is integral to the brand’s fragrance identity.
With Rose Tangerine, this unique rose note takes on an unexpectedly fruit-inspired twist: the lively, sunny essence of tangerine brings radiance to the scent, while vivid blackcurrant with verdant undertones reinforces its character. A base of cedar and white amber lingers for a streamlined, ultra-contemporary elegance. Chloé eau de toilette is an expression of femininity that is more liberated and assertive than ever.
To celebrate the gift of travel, Drunk Elephant collaborated with Monos to come up with a custom wheelie, prepacked with 10 full-size Drunk Elephant products. Throw in some clothes, a toothbrush, a good book, and you’re set—wherever life might take you.
Lather away dirt and grime with Beste No. 9 and follow with a smoothie of Protini, B-Hydra, and C-Firma. (Or T.L.C. Framboos, B-Hydra, and Virgin Marula Oil. Or F-Balm, B-Hydra, and C-Firma. You get the idea.) Knock your cells out with a 20-minute Babyfacial once a week, dab Shaba around the eyes for extra nourishment, and always end with a layer of Umbra in the daytime to protect against harmful UV rays.

Roger Dubuis launches a brand new masterpiece at Watches & Wonders Shanghai 2020 - Excalibur Superbia.
The ultimate example of the Maison’s unshakable pride and excess, Excalibur Superbia is crafted in palladium-enriched white gold and set with exactly 600 precious white diamonds and blue sapphires.
Sending it firmly into the hallowed halls of World Premieres, the excessiveness of the Excalibur Superbia comes from the fact that every stone set on the flange, the bezel, the case and the crown is tetrahedron shaped and assembled with an invisible setting on curved surfaces. The hardest way to set a stone, an invisible setting becomes nearly impossible when required on a curved surface.
Simple, straight and utterly frank , the lines of this exceptional piece of artistry are strongly reminiscent of the spatial art forms favoured by interior design artist KAZ SHIRANE.
