Here's Why The Residences At Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok Takes Luxury Living To The Next Level
Bangkok is known for its vibrant night-life, shopping destinations and culinary delights. It also has lush greenery and tropical weather, making it a favourite spot for those who enjoy natural living. It’s not often that you can enjoy both these aspects at the same time, however, despite there being a growing palette for metropolitan yet organic living.
What if you could be a stone's throw away from it all but at the same time, away from the hustle and bustle of the city?
It is possible, and that’s exactly what we love about the newly opened The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, where secluded luxury meets urban playground. It is part of ICONSIAM, an integrated development that includes a shopping mall, and is also the first residential development by the Mandarin Oriental in Southeast Asia.
Inside and out, this building was constructed with an eye for detail. The 52-storey high residence has unobstructed views of the Chao Phraya river as well as the city skyline. The condominium comprises 146 waterfront units with two-, three- and four-bedroom options as well as duplex penthouse units. Private lift access is also available on the property.
But it’s not just the views and exteriors that are striking. Take one step inside and be wowed by what surrounds you. The beautiful decor comes as no surprise considering how it was crafted by award-winning Hong Kong designer Joyce Wang Studios—her first project in the capital.
The lobby itself makes a lasting first impression, from slate and marble accent walls to an exquisite curation of artwork. There's also fully custom-designed furniture and fixtures, limited edition antique pieces, as well as internationally-sourced artisanal crafts that make up the sumptuous interiors.
As a reflection of Joyce Wang Studio's attention to detail, a carved natural stone sculpture is displayed prominently in the lobby—an ode to the Chao Phraya riverbed.

Both the views and comfortable interiors would make it easy to never leave your apartment, but it’s only once you have explored the rest of the residence that you get a true sense of home. There are lounges with views of lush greenery, a communal pantry, a state-of-the-art gym, sky pavilion and a library, so you can share common interests with fellow residences. On top of that, all residents get to enjoy 24/7 concierge service as part of the benefits from Mandarin Oriental's Residence Elite Programme.
“The feeling of home and community is important in designing the residences and amenity areas. I wanted to create a luxurious space where moments of togetherness can be experienced,” Wang explains.
