KIMPTON MAA-LAI BANGKOK CELEBRATES “YOU” THIS FESTIVE SEASON
(31 October 2023 – Bangkok, Thailand) – Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, Bangkok’s hippest luxury lifestyle hotel, welcomes the festive season this year, with the concept “Holiday & You” to amplify happiness, inner peace and to share the festive spirit with everyone who walks through the doors; a celebration to suit everyone’s individual style.
SUSTAINABLE CHRISTMAS TREE BY TOUCHÉ BANGKOK
Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok strives to combine local culture and contemporary art with sustainability, and this year is no exception. This hotel in Langsuan has partnered with Touché Bangkok to continue to push and blur traditional norms, with upcycled fashion material converted into an iconic Christmas masterpiece. The unique, five-meter-high structure, displayed at the lobby from 28th November 2023 to 7th January 2024, will mimic the shape of a grand Christmas tree but will be made entirely of fabric and textile waste such as cloth labels and yarn-thread waste from a Thai carpet weaving factory.
GET WRAPPED UP IN THE HOLIDAY MOOD WITH CRAFT
Remember those family Christmas Day nightmares? The one’s where you had to wear your gift to the dinner, and that gift was ALWAYS a cringe worthy sweater from Aunty Lorraine? Like Celine once said, ‘It’s all coming back to you now?’ That’s right, remember your tragic yesteryear, December 25th’s with the ugly holiday sweater-inspired décor and staff winter wear at CRAFT throughout December. It just couldn’t get cozier and warmer OR more Chrimbo Cringe at CRAFT this holiday season.
Adding to the spirit of the happiest month of the year, CRAFT is also serving up hot-out-the-oven sweets including yoghurt fruit cake, sticky toffee pudding, yule logs and plenty more.
