AccorHotels will open its first Orient Express hotel in Bangkok. Expected to open late next year, the hotel will be located within the 78-story King Power MahaNakhon skyscraper, the tallest building in the city. 

Accor acquired a 50% stake in Orient Express from French national rail company SNCF Group in October 2017, with the intention of reviving the brand. The hotel company now known as Belmond used the Orient Express brand until 2014, but the company rebranded its hotels after its licensing deal with SNCF expired. 

The Orient Express MahaNakhon Bangkok will house 154 rooms, including nine suites and two penthouses. Amenities will include a full floor of wellness offerings -- an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi and an Orient Express Spa by Guerlain.

On the second floor, guests will be able to dine at Mott 32, a Cantonese restaurant and cocktail bar named after 32 Mott Street, the site of New York City's first Chinese convenience store. The fifth floor will house Mahanathi by David Thompson, the latest venture from the Australian-born chef. Known for his expertise in Thai cuisine, Thompson was most recently affiliated with Michelin-starred restaurant Nahm in Bangkok.

Guests will also have access to the building's MahaNakhon SkyWalk observation deck on the 74th, 75th and 78th floors, as well a rooftop restaurant and bar on the 76th floor that promises sweeping views of the city.
