Bangkok, 8 December, 2016 – Shanghai Mansion, a luxury boutique hotel located in Bangkok’s historic Chinatown, has been named the Asia-Pacific region’s Best Luxury Cultural Hotel 2016 at the 10th Annual World Luxury Hotel Awards Gala in Dubai on 29 October.
Shanghai Mansion Bangkok is part of Burasari Group, a boutique hotel and management company based in Bangkok, Thailand. Housed in a historic landmark building that was once Bangkok’s first Chinese Opera House, Shanghai Mansion was renovated to period perfection, bringing the elegance and glamour of 1930s Shanghai to Bangkok’s vibrant and equally historic Chinatown district. A large indoor atrium with a lovely water garden resembles the grand courtyards of traditional Chinese homes and accommodations steeped in chinoiserie and vintage accoutrements exemplify the hotel’s culturally-rich services, which include traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony and a modern Chinese dining menu.
“It is an honour to be named Best Luxury Cultural Hotel in the entire region,” said Lily Udomkunnatum, Burasari Group’s Managing Director. “Shanghai Mansion is an ode to a remarkable period of history, a period whose penaché was felt in Shanghai, Bangkok and around the world! We are thrilled to introduce our guests to this culturally rich and artistically gorgeous period.”
