137 Pillars hotel group expands in Thailand

Bangkok, 16 June, 2016 – Following the strong success of the stunning 30-suite 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai, the Wongphanlert family have created a new luxury brand, 137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts ( and will continue to expand in Thailand.

A third property, 137 Pillars Estate Phuket, is scheduled to open early 2019 on the North Peninsula of Kata Beach, with 16 sunset facing Pool villas and 51 Pool Suites.

137 Pillars Hotels & Resorts has been passionately curated on the foundation of the historic Baan Borneo at 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai. This original teak homestead dating back to the late 1800s has a rich colonial history and was the former headquarters of the East Borneo Company. The Leonowens and Bain family lived there, as well as their famous partner Rajah Brooke. Each new hotel will thus feature a Jack Bain’s Bar and Cigar Divan and the elite Louis Leonowens Club for our invited members. These two iconic families form the connection that 137 Pillars Hotels and Resorts will take into each new hotel.

137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok will showcase 34 exquisitely appointed suites and 179 private residences. The architects for the property are Palmer and Turner from Bangkok, with Interiors by P49 Design and Landscape by Wabi Sabi Studio. Interiors will showcase a warm palette of rich tones with exquisite white and grey marble bathrooms and expansive use of mirrors and glass.

At the helm of the brand leading a handpicked team of talented individuals, Christopher E. Stafford leads as Chief Operating Officer, directing and overseeing every step of the creation of this passionately curated brand, to deliver an outstanding and memorable experience for every guest and resident.
