Contemporary Hua Chang Heritage Hotel Influenced by Historic Thailand

Hua Chang Heritage Hotel

Mixing interpretations of classic King Rama V-era Thailand and turn-of-the-century Europe make this boutique property unique and beautiful.

The modern conveniences at the newly opened Hua Chang Heritage Hotel make it comfortable, but it’s the interpretations of classic elements that make it beautiful. The boutique property is a mix of Thai and Western design, inspired by the King Rama V-era of Thailand and turn-of-the-century Europe.

This unique theme begins with the name of the property (borrowed from the nearby historic Hua Chang or “Elephant Head” Bridge,) and continues through with the architecture and even into the colors selected for each room.

The Hua Chang Heritage Hotel boasts 80 guests rooms spread throughout seven floors. While many hotels these days opt for simple earth tones, the Hua Chang Heritage Hotel has gone in a completely different direction. Bright magentas, purples and cobalt blues- a nod to the colors of the Thai lotus- energize each guestroom and suite. Ceiling beams reflect construction techniques of traditional Thai teak homes.

Deluxe rooms are 32 square meters with bedside control panels, Blu-ray players and 40-inch televisions. 40 square meter garden deluxe rooms offer views of the hotel’s lush gardens and clever glass panels create a seamless flow from bedroom to bathroom. Suites are 88 square meters with marble tiled floors and separate living spaces. All bathrooms are stocked with Thann amenities and all rooms come with complimentary Wi-Fi.

Public spaces at the hotel include a free-form swimming pool with a pool bar designed to look like a domed elephant howdah made of bamboo. The mix of traditional tastes and contemporary luxuries continues at Miss Siam, the all-day venue serving American and Thai dishes. Miss Siam features an open-kitchen design allowing diners to watch the chefs at work as well as lotus-shaped windows and a traditional Thai roof. Lounge 56 offers a spot for taking afternoon tea or hosting the perfect private party or business event.
