Pullman Khon Kaen Raja Orchid
Lost in Isan's Soul at Khon Kaen
Khon Kaen—the heart of the Northeast, is a city that never sleeps. It’s a business center and a portal town for the main routes within the region. However, Khon Kaen is not a sprawling metropolis, for it has managed to retain its ‘Isan’ charms, which marvellously combines the magic of old Isan with the contemporary.
For those visiting Khon Kaen, a stay at Pullman Khon Kaen Raja Orchid is undoubtedly recommended. Considered the only five-star international hotel in the Isan region, the hotel is conveniently located downtown, with accommodating facilities and high-speed internet to indulge in. More excitingly, the hotel was also used as the set for ‘The Con-heartist’ starring Thailand’s favorite, Khon Kaen-born superstar: Nadech Kugimiya. So rest assured, because this is all 100% true and not a con in any way.
Pullman Khon Kaen Raja Orchid is considered the second Pullman Hotel in Thailand to house over 200 luxurious rooms. The hotel also offers a meeting room and a ballroom which can be used to host important key meetings and important events ranging from weddings, exhibitions and receptions. Aside from its modern design and top-notch service, its interior is uniquely stunning with its modern Isan decor. The ‘Bai Sri’ sculpture in the lobby, for instance, is an auspicious symbol that signifies prosperity and friendship. The hotel rooms also feature Isan-inspired decor, including ‘Lai Khid’ Isan textile used as a decorative rug to spice up the room.
Manoon Khunpoo, the assistant F&B managers, personally showed the team around the hotel before treating everyone to delicious coffee. Sharing their impressions of Boncafé, the two noted how they are “impressed with the product quality and the service. In terms of taste, the beans and the coffee are rich in flavour—and our guests all find them very pleasing.”
