Thailand, Bangkok City, Bangkok. June 19, 2019

The St. Regis Bangkok has welcomed a new Executive Pastry Chef, Anupong Nualchawee and a new Director of Sales, Prachaya Basset, to the team.

"The St. Regis Bangkok recently celebrated our eighth anniversary, and with these executive appointments, we look forward to continue bringing exceptional experiences for modern connoisseurs in the city," said Klaus Christandl, General Manager.

Ms. Prachaya Basset brings more than 15 years of experience in refined hospitality, most recently with Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. No stranger to the hotel, she was previously with The St. Regis Bangkok as Account Director in 2012 and 2013. Ms. Basset has also worked with a number of other luxury brands in Bangkok, including Conrad and InterContinental. In her new role as Director of Sales, she will be working closely with both revenue and marketing teams to develop strategic customer segments and maintain the overall positioning of the hotel.

Mr. Anupong Nualchawee, known as Chef Aey, joins The St. Regis Bangkok from The Athenee Hotel, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok. As Executive Pastry Chef during that hotel's rebranding, he oversaw the pastry and dessert menus for all restaurant outlets and banquets. Prior to that position, he was part of the pre-opening team at Le Méridien Suvarnabhumi, Bangkok Golf Resort & Spa. He has also held stints at other hotels in Bangkok, Koh Samui, and as Executive Personal Chef for Royal Family at Chakri Bongkot Thai Royal Palace in Nonthaburi, Thailand. In his new role as Executive Pastry Chef at The St. Regis Bangkok, Anupong will be leading the pastry culinary team to develop the pastry and dessert menus in the hotel's restaurants and bars.

Together with the rest of their colleagues at The St. Regis Bangkok, Prachaya and Chef Anupong look forward to showcase the hotel's reputation as one of the finest addresses in the city. For more information about The St. Regis Bangkok, visit

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
