For anyone looking for the ultimate condominium at the ultimate address in Bangkok, there can be only one choice – the Ritz-Carlton Residences.
The Ritz-Carlton Residences are located on the top floors of what will become the most prestigious project in all of Thailand – MahaNakhon. Rising more than 300m above the ground, covering 77 floors which makes this the tallest building in Thailand, MahaNakhon is a totally unique project both in terms of both functionality and architecture. At the bottom of the tower will be a shopping mall, which is sure to become home to outlets operated by the leading luxury branded goods retailers from around the world. The middle floors of the building will be operated as a five-star hotel – The Edition. A maximum of 206 condominium purchasers have the opportunity of purchasing into the best floors of the building – those in the upper storeys of the tower, from where the views over the city and the Chao Phraya River will be the best in the whole of the city.The architecture of MahaNakhon is totally unique – featuring a ‘pixelated’ design that is guaranteed to ensure that the building becomes the most-recognized feature of the Bangkok skyline for generations to come. The ‘pixels’ formed by the design create ‘Sky Boxes’ – glass cubes that jut out from the side of the building ensuring incredible 180 degree views over the city – plus outdoor terraces offering the same fabulous views.
In keeping with the fully five-star nature of the Ritz-Carlton brand, everything connected with the Residences is Luxurious with a capital ‘L’. Firstly there is the project’s location in upmarket Silom. Chong Nonsi BTS station is literally on MahaNakhon’s doorstep, connected by a walk way to the building, providing quick and easy transportation to all parts of the city.In terms of fixtures and fittings, all apartments at the Ritz-Carlton residences feature only the best, with all built-in facilities including kitchen equipment and bathroom fixtures all coming from the world’s most prestigious suppliers.Then there are the facilities. Not only do buyers at Ritz-Carlton Residences have access to all of the facilities of the designer brand mall below, but they get plenty in the way of facilities which are exclusive to owners of the 206 apartments which form the residential part of the project. Here you will find all of the standard facilities that buyers of luxury real estate in the 21st Century have come to expect – including a large swimming pool, a sky terrace featuring a bar and restaurant and a fully-equipped fitness centre including spa rooms and saunas. However, what puts the Ritz-Carlton Residences into a league of its own is the level of service that the Ritz-Carlton brand has become synonymous with. All owners at the Ritz-Carlton Residences will enjoy the benefits of a full-service 24-hour concierge facility, together with doormen, porters and valet parking, as you would expect when staying at one of the world’s finest hotels. Whatever you may require while staying in Bangkok, the Ritz-Carlton property management team will be on hand to assist you with, from cleaning and laundry services, through providing personal trainers, event planning and even pet services.In summary, if you are one of the fortunate few for whom the ultimate levels of style and elegance are affordable, there can be no doubt that Ritz-Carlton Residences is the only choice.
Silom has the advantage of access to two mass transit systems: the Skytrain, with stations at both Sala Daeng and Chong Nonsi in the neighbourhood, and the subway, which has a Silom station at the mouth of the soi. This makes it relatively easy to get anywhere needed in Bangkok, plus there are all the normal options of bus, motosai and taxi.
This neighbourhood is part of a large business district, and most folks that live here do so because they also work in the area. Most of the office buildings are on the first half of the soi, which is bisected by Narathiwas Road. This first half also has plenty of retail, with a handful of malls and scads of street vendors. On Sundays the government closes the road off to vehicles and Silom becomes a walking street filled with food, clothes and goodies.
