Bangkok is a city rich in history. Celebrated for its culture, respected as a nexus of business, it has long been renowned for its wealth of pleasures and delights. Since its inception, the neighborhood of Rajadamri has been a home for those of achievement and distinction, a place for an exclusive few to carve out their legacy.
To guide and shape Bangkok’s development, King Chulalongkorn and his advisors adopted modern principles of urban planning.
One area eyed as a jewel for development was the expanse of land between Bangrak and Sra Pathum, where ground had been broken on the newly charted Royal Bangkok Sports Club. The King commanded that a road be built to link the two districts.
On January 3rd, 1902, the Fifth Rama bestowed upon the new boulevard the name Rajadamri. The name means “Royal Intent,” for the King intended it as a model for how major thoroughfares in Bangkok should be conceived and constructed.
Today, Rajadamri is more than a road. The name has become inextricably linked with the neighborhood that has grown and evolved around the thoroughfare. It is a name and an address that has come to symbolize class, elegance and sophistication. Status. Prestige. Vision. A Rajadamri address elicits all that and more.
AT YOUR DOORSTEP
Rajadamri today is a neighborhood that speaks to the soul of Bangkok. Amid skyscrapers and Skytrains that are the essence of modernity, one can still discover shrines to local divinities, a colonial mansion of rare teakwood, detailed ironwork or reliefs on gates and façades that are testaments to an era gone by.
Rajadamri is a district where shoppers throng to upscale boutiques and malls, yet serenity and solitude can be found under the shade of the lakeside trees at Lumpini Park. Where commerce is conducted in gleaming office towers, and play is a joy in its parks and clubs.
The location could not be more ideal. In Rajadamri you are connected – to business, to pleasure, to culture, sport and health.
For those engaged in enterprise, Bangkok’s Central Business District is just moments away by car, Rajadamri Skytrain Station (BTS) or even by foot. Major office buildings from Silom and Sathorn Roads to Siam Square and the Chidlom area are all within easy reach. Time saved commuting means more time for business, family and the pleasures of life.
The fruits of success can be enjoyed with some of the best luxury shopping in Bangkok. An envious array of upscale emporia lay within a short radius of Rajadamri: Siam Paragon, Discovery Center, Gaysorn, CentralWorld, Peninsula Plaza, Central Embassy and Central Chidlom.
The prime inner city location is also the home of leading hotels including St Regis, The Intercontinental, Grand Hyatt Erawan, The Rennaissance, The Anantara and Siam Kempinski, serving as a rendezvous for the Kingdom’s leaders and most prominent visitors. The city’s most exclusive private clubs are tucked away within the district, with membership roll of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club, and its subsidiary The Polo Club on Wireless Road, constituting a veritable Who’s Who of Thailand society.
The lush greenery, running trails and lakes at Lumpini Park attract visitors from across the city, providing the venue for major cultural performances and festivals.
