Hansar Bangkok was designed with the boutique traveler in mind. It is a hotel that has to be discovered and revisited and brings local inspiration to world travelers. We find customers who yearn for an authentic and unpretentious luxury experience in an intimate environment where no luxuries are forsaken.
Our hotel provides a unique opportunity to entertain industry leaders in an intimate, private and secure setting without the need to sacrifice any world-class services and amenities. We also design our rooms and services around the needs of the business professional. From BMW 5 Series airport pickups with internet enabled iPad to complimentary use of boardrooms, free Wi-Fi in all rooms and public areas and free minibar replenished daily, our business travelers are assured business and pleasure will be attained and their expectations surpassed.
The inspiration for Hansar comes from the lively and generous spirit of Thai culture. The word itself, Hansar, means “joy and happiness”.

Hansar Bangkok is located among the city’s most prestigious locations on Ratchadamri Road. Adjacent is the Royal Bangkok Sports Club which was founded in 1901 by Royal permission of His Majesty the King Chulalongkorn, King Rama V. The private club’s facilities include an 18-hole golf course and horseracing track, views of which our guests can enjoy from their rooms and the hotel’s public areas. Our location is set back from the main road making our property quiet and allowing our guests more privacy. Within 200 meters of Hansar Bangkok is the BTS Sky train Ratchadamri Station which connects our guests to all of Bangkok’s main modes of transport and city centers.

Belgium born Charles Christiaens has been appointed as Executive Chef at Hansar Bangkok. He has packed a considerable amount of experience into his career, and has worked at some of the best fine dining restaurants in Belgium, London and the south of France, including Le Trefle a Quartre Genval in Belgium (2 Michelin Stars), Relais et Chateau on Valvi Corsica Island, France (1 Michelin Star) and at the L Estelle en Camargues Chateaux et Hotel Collection. He has also cooked for a number of Society events in Cannes.
His love of travel brought him to Thailand on a diving holiday in 2003 and he fell in love with the country and has been here ever since. His first role in Thailand was at Bistingo soi Saladeang (now Aubergine) and then Harvey Restaurant, before becoming Chef de Cuisine at Nei Lert Park Swissotel’s Ma Maison Restaurant. He then moved to Landmark as
Chef de Cuisine and prior to joining Hansar Bangkok, was Executive Chef at the Pathumwan Princess Hotel.
With more than 18 years’ experience under his belt, Chef Charles has a wealth of experience, talent and creativity which he is excited to bring to Hansar Bangkok where his culinary flair will be showcased at the award-winning EVE restaurant. He loves to create amazing flavors and aromas in his dishes, to ensure a memorable dining experience for his guests, using the freshest seasonal ingredients.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Because the green area at the ground level was limited, the Sky Garden concept was introduced to elevate the green area to higher levels. The frangipani trees (plumeria obtusa) with vanilla-scented white flowers also act as a welcome surprise for our hotel guests as they can view and enjoy these floating trees in the sky just outside of their guest suites.
Hansar Bangkok’s landscaping was also designed by WOHA and the result is a deeply interconnected balance of architecture and greenery. Through this balance is a softening added to the hard lines and surfaces of the bold and monumental architecture. As seen in the result, the philosophy was not to simply add landscaping on top or around the environment, but to design into and within the architecture so that the elements are harmoniously balanced and a sense of being in the tropics is apparent.
Cantilever Infinity Edge Swimming Pool & 19th Floor Terrace
Many of our hotel guests may not be aware, but their swimming pool and 19th Floor terrace are cantilevered over the main structure. This architectural and structural feat provides our guests with unobstructed views towards the Royal Bangkok Sports Club which would not be visible otherwise.
Similar to the Sky Gardens, the Sky Pavillions are found irregularly along the hotel’s façade and are also cantilevered to provide our hotel guests unexpected and framed city views of our Ratchadamri neighbourhood.
Façade Green Wall
As opposed to a concrete wall parking lot, we have a vertical wall of green creepers (5-stories high) that surrounds all facades of our building, and absorbs naturally the CO2 from the cars.
COMMISSIONED ARTWORKS BY THAI ARTISTS
Hansar Bangkok worked with several artists for the artworks on display in our public areas and guest suites. All of the artists featured are Thai and currently working in either Bangkok or Chiang Mai.
Ploenchan Vinyaratn, Cotton and Silk Hand-Stitched and Embroidered
On display in Hansar Bangkok’s lobby is a striking 8 meter tall x 4 meter wide fabric installation by Ms. Vinyaratn titled Krachow Sita which is based on a sketch of Krachow Sita, Aristolochia indica by Thai illustrator Pomm Jitpratuk. All the cotton and silk fabric used in this artwork is sourced from Her Majesty the Queen’s Support Foundation (The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques).
Kachama, Antique Fabric Silks and Metallic Beads
For the headboards in all 94 guest suites at Hansar Bangkok, Kachama V. Perez, a Chiang Mai based artist worked with our interior designers to weave Thai antique silks with metallic beads. Each piece is completely unique and hand-woven.
Kornkrit Jianpinidnan, Photography, Lamda print on Endura Paper
Within Hansar Bangkok’s lobby are two photographic artworks by Bangkok-based photographer and artist, Kornkrit Jianpinidnan. The two pieces are from his ‘There’s Only One Sun’ series – a documentary photography project in Banyang village, Fang, Chiang Mai from 2007-2008. This series captures the environment and the livelihood around Banyang village after the water flooding’s in year 2006.
Tanapol Kaewpring, Photography inkjet on canvas
The three photographic works by Tanapol in Hansar Bangkok’s lobby are all taken in Thailand and play with the sense of environment and scale. The typical landscapes or settings chosen by Tanapol for his photographs challenge the viewer’s norms for understanding Thai-ness in a traditional sense.
