137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok

137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts was formed as a group in October 2015 to manage a growing portfolio of luxury boutique hotels. (137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts are a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World).

The first important milestone was the creation of 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai which opened on December 23, 2011. The historic original teak homestead built in the late 1800’s, known as Baan Borneo, was completely transformed back to its former splendour. 

The grounds were developed into a lush tropical landscape and 30 expansive suites were built.  With full services and facilities, 137 Pillars House emerged as the leading luxury hotel in Chiang Mai. 

The great historic background of the Borneo Company Ltd. with its then famous leading actors Louis Leonowens and William Bain, gave the present day owners the vision to renovate and restore the beautiful homestead. Their love of the environment enabled the owners to retain all the old majestic trees under careful supervision of experts in the area, to set the tone and ambiance for the setting we have come to know and love today.

In 2016, 137 Pillars House attained the coveted Travel + Leisure Magazine’s World’s Best Award for the Best Resort Hotel & Inn in South East Asia and was the highest ranked hotel in Thailand for that year. In 2017 the hotel again took the number one spot as Best Resort Hotel in South East Asia.  This is testament to a great team driven by their own roadmap for achieving excellence and thus formed the core of the 137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts.

Following the success of the Chiang Mai property, the owners built 137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok which opened in February 2017.  The property consists of 179 residences and a 34-suite hotel on the top 6 floors with a stunning infinity edge rooftop pool exclusively for suite guests.  With an upscale address on Sukhumvit Soi 39, the property is a short distance from the fashionable shopping district of Emquartier/Emporium and offers bespoke facilities for leisure, business and long stay guests, including the use of their stylish, customized London Cab which operates between the hotel and Emquartier. 

137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok features the brand’s signature Baan Borneo Club (exclusive for suite guests), the Jack Bain’s Bar and Cigar Divan and the exquisite Nimitr specialty restaurant – a fine dining destination offering the highest standards of modern cuisine drawing on both Oriental and Western inspirations.  The Bangkok Trading Post Bistro & Bar is an all-day dining bistro, bar and deli appealing to local residents and guests.

 Accommodation interiors showcase a warm palette of rich tones with exquisite white and grey marble bathrooms and expansive use of mirrors and glass.  The Nitra Serenity Centre offers a range of treatments including the 137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts Signature Sleep by Design Therapy created in 2017 and has a separate yoga and meditation sala offers activities including aerial flow yoga, tai chi, reiki and dance. The 27th floor has late check-out and early check-in pods and separate shower facilities in the event rooms are fully booked.  Other services include 137 Pillars signature dining and picnics by design, a personal shopping service and guide, privately curated and customized tours, golf practice putting and chipping with personal trainers on request, kids’ corner and meeting space.

Growing on the success of these two established properties, the owners are looking to strategically develop new properties in Southeast Asia and beyond that fit with the ethos of the 137 Pillars brand.  Several projects are currently under consideration and development.   

Our core value of trust formed a roadmap towards our ambition as a company to become the #1 Luxury Boutique Hotel Company in Asia. Our vision is to bring back the timeless qualities of genuine hospitality in an age of commoditisation of hotels.
