Bangkok, Thailand February 2020- The centre of bustling Bangkok returns to an era of refinement when Daraya Boutique Hotel opened its doors on October 1, 2019. Drawing inspiration from the King Rama V era, Daraya Boutique Hotel is a bold statement of individuality, with a distinctive blending of traditional Thai elements with modern conveniences.
Situated in the epicenter of Bangkok, Daraya is a paradise for shoppers, located near iconic malls Siam Centre, Paragon and MBK as well as cultural treasures like the Jim Thompson House. The central positioning means it is conveniently accessible from both major airports and just moments from the BTS, allowing for easy commuting around the city.
The boutique hotel is the brainchild of hospitality pioneer, Ms. Rungaroon Rojanachotikul also known as Khun Pui. Having grown up abroad in New Zealand and studied at the esteemed hospitality management school ‘Les Roches’ in Switzerland, Khun Pui embraced the sharing of cultures and traditions as she continued working across Europe and Asia. Her international exposure cultivated a love of travel and new experiences, forming the inspiration to create a hotel of her own where travellers can rediscover the timeless elegance of Old Siam. By leveraging her family’s experience in the hotel and cinema industry, she has created an immersive experience for travellers seeking a merging of old-world glamour and modern conveniences.
Daraya Boutique Hotel was meticulously planned from the ground as a celebration of the elegance of Old Siam, combined with all modern comforts of an international hotel. Khun Pui has imagined Daraya as an elegant lady who represents a beautiful merging of both Thai and Western cultures.
