This was our 6th stay at Rachamankha. They only have 25 rooms. The owner, Rooj, built this facility from scratch with architectural designs by his famous Thai architect/step father. Rooj’s birth father was a prominent real estate developer in Bangkok. The family has $$$$.
Rooj started acquiring Thai antiquities and contempory original art early on. He and his partner live in a separate home built within the compound. In his private residence hangs original oils by Henry Moore, Picasso, Miro and on. He also has an extensive collection of contemporary prints which rotate through the public areas. Currrently in the bar hangs a very large Robert Motherwell litho.
The public areas and guest rooms are filled with limited edition prints by contemporary Thai artists as well as his collection of antique Thai prints and paintings. There are Ming Dynasty Chinese stone statues adorning the sides of stairs.
Enjoy the photos as we do. Celeste says, “This is my favorite hotel in SE Asia”.
