Review: Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok


Book A Hotel

Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is a design-centric Bangkok city hotel. The hotel channels the energy of Bangkok’s vibrant pulse fusing raw, urban intensity with a light-hearted spirit and distinguished design.


The hotel is located in the city center, meaning all the city’s top attractions are only a stone’s throw away.

Style & Character

Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is a modern luxury hotel that blends traditional Thai styles and modern design elements. With its bold and colorful interiors, the Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok offers a contemporary take on Asian style. The hotel also features its very own manicured, green and lush gardens, which is quite a rare oasis in this vibrant, buzzing city.

The lobby is stark, slate grey, and impressive, with amazing light features including the stunning Raindrop braided rope sculpture that embraces the wonder of water and pays tribute to the hotel’s Thai agricultural roots. The rooms are composed of dark wood contrasting with white linens. We particularly like how beds are positioned close to the floor-to-ceiling windows to let guests make the most of the views.


Each of the 231 hotel rooms and suites is bespoke and crafted to celebrate the city, welcoming its guests with contemporary sense of comfort. Asian artistic heritage is reflected in the HARNN amenities which are complimentary for all rooms. Bathrooms have oversized tubs and luxurious robes, and closets are lined with bird-themed wall illustrations by the Bangkok-born artist Phannapast.

If you’re considering a longer stay in the city, the hotel also boasts 131 serviced residences, each with 1-3 bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, stylish furnishings and lush green views. These unique luxury serviced apartments, right in the heart of Bangkok, are the perfect place to stay whilst exploring the beauty of Bangkok and combine all the perks of hotel living.

Service & Facilities

Service is fantastic at this hotel, with joyous smiling staff who can’t do enough for you. The hotel features a variety of luxurious amenities such as the chic CRAFT Cafe, or stay fit and fabulous at the 24-Hour Fitness Centre. Try the complimentary bikes or the luxurious amaranth spa to ease your senses. The indoor-outdoor infinity pool that overlooks the lush Langsuan oasis is an absolute highlight and the hotel is pet-friendly too!

Located on the third floor, soak up the sun at the outdoor infinity pool in Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok’s secret garden. This little urban oasis is adorned with lush local floras and potted plants, where you can take a quick refreshing dip, curl up on the sun lounger with that new e-book you just downloaded, or put on your headphones and enjoy your favorite playlist.

Food & Drink

With five distinct dining venues to choose from, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok lets you wine, dine and unwind simultaneously. Start your day with top-notch coffee at CRAFT in the lobby lounge, visit the neighborhood-inspired grocerant, and enjoy farm-to-plate delicacies at Stock. Room or enjoy an elevated afternoon tea with breathtaking Bangkok city views on the 30th floor at Maa-Lai Library. The intimate cocktail bar, Ms.Jigger, is the best place to begin your evening with an inventive drink or two or paired with authentic Italian cuisine before heading upstairs and continuing the party under the stars on the rooftop terrace with unparalleled views of the city at Bar.Yard.

On top of all the above, guests get all the complimentary benefits of Kimpton Hallmarks, including the Social Hour with free flow beverages by the pool every day from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. (this includes house wines, selected cocktails, slushy of the day and soft drinks), as well as the Morning Kickstart, which offers free tea, coffee or juice to-go provided at the lobby every day from 6:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.


Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is a luxury boutique hotel that celebrates the city’s rich history and urban creative scene through a minimalist blend of handcrafted Thai textiles with oversized modern furnishings, while the metallic touches reflect the city’s eccentric side. Add in brilliant staff and their stylish pool and this hotel has to be one of the top picks for luxury hotels in Bangkok.
