Hot! Marriott International Signs Agreement with AWC to Debut The Ritz-Carlton Bangkok, The Riverside


Asset World Corp Public Company Limited (SET: AWC), Thailand’s leading integrated lifestyle real estate group together with Marriott International, Inc announces the opening of a new Ritz Carlton brand in Bangkok to be located on three separate sites on opposite banks of the Chao Phraya, Bangkok’s legendary “River of Kings”

Scheduled to open in phases in 2026, The Ritz-Carlton Bangkok, The Riverside is inspired by the concept of Yin and Yang, with distinct elements facing each other across the rippling water, the design will be centered upon The Lhong 1919 Riverside Heritage Destination, a collection of sensitively restored warehouses on the west bank of the Chao Phraya. Three reimagined low-rise structures are expected to be complemented by two brand new buildings featuring 86 stylish rooms and suites with river views and plunge pools, nine exclusive villas, multiple dining destinations including a signature rooftop restaurant, a fully-equipped fitness center, serene spa, and an outdoor infinity pool with a pool bar.

With exquisite architecture, leafy courtyards, shady walkways, an ornate shrine and lush foliage, the property is also expected to include event spaces for life’s most important occasions, including corporate gatherings and waterfront weddings.

Directly opposite the bustling east bank of the Chao Phraya, a beautiful mansion and two revitalized shophouses will capture the essence of SongWad Road, a thriving center of trade and commerce and the gateway to Bangkok’s Chinatown. The Shophouse is slated to include 24 rooms, a riverside pool and bar, a wellness center and space for intimate events, while The Mansion expects to feature 56 breath-taking rooms, an infinity pool, waterside restaurant, fitness area and kids’ room. Guests will be able to enjoy all three sites by dedicated shuttle boats.

The Shophouse and The Mansion are expected to open in 2026, with The Lhong 1919 Riverside Heritage Destination scheduled to follow in 2027. The Ritz-Carlton Bangkok, Riverside expects to become the 20th hotel and operating asset to be owned by AWC and managed by Marriott International in Thailand.
