The Montien Hotel Surawong Bangkok first opened its doors in 1967, marking the beginning of remarkable journey that has seen the hotel play a major role in the development and success of Thailand’s tourist industry for more than half a century.
Today, following a stunning multi-million dollar refurbishment, the Montien is once again a brand new hotel - a modern interpretation of a classic that perfectly matches the old with the new. The finest elements of the original property have been beautifully brought back to life, with an exciting contemporary style that serves as a reminder of those halcyon days.
Montien's 500 guestrooms and suites have all been ingeniously redesigned, combining timeless Thai style with a contemporary attitude. Each is generously spacious and comes with the comfort and technology to satisfy the demands of today's most savvy traveller, together with the assurance of outstanding service and the hotel’s famous hospitality.
At the heart of the Montien is the spectacular Rajmontien Grand Ballroom, a breathtakingly beautiful facility designed exclusively for the hotel by highly regarded P49 Deesign & Associates.
Equipped with the latest in LED technology from SAMSUNG, this newly upgraded venue can accommodate up to 800 guests. However, thanks to its highly flexible layout, the area can also be divided into four separate ballrooms for smaller events.
Coupled with the Montien’s famous catering services, including dishes from the hotel’s Michelin BIB Gourmand awards restaurant, the Grand Ballroom is ideal for all kinds of events and occasions, from weddings and social functions to conferences, conventions and corporate meetings.
Dining at the Montien begins at Ruenton, the hotel’s legendary Thai-Chinese restaurant. Since its top-to-toe refit and major rebranding last year, an ambitious project that included a major expansion into five sections, and the addition of several multi-functional private dining areas, Ruenton is once again the talk of the town thanks to its award-winning cuisine overseen by the hotel’s 20-year veteran Chef Amnuay Aneksuwan.
A regular haunt for several generations of local diners, Ruenton has the distinction of being recognized by Michelin for its exceptional cuisine, especially its much-loved signature dishes like Hainanese Chicken Rice, Thai Fried Noodles, Crispy Mussels and Dim Sums.
Now, after its spectacular refurbishment, this iconic restaurant has become the preferred dining venue for people of all ages and tastes, thanks to a new and inspired menu that bridges the generations.
The hotel also boasts an exciting new wine bar called Phar Ram 1V that transforms a continental-style café and bistro by day into a chic wine bar with cool entertainment by night.
All-day dining highlights include delicious local lunchtime favorites to ‘grab and go’ or stay and enjoy, along with a host of tasty European snacks, homemade sandwiches, chocolate croissants, toasted paninis, sourdough breads and bagels brimming with the finest Deli products.
Also on the menu are some of the most creative pizzas and quiches in Bangkok, plus a choice of pâtés and rillettes, healthy salads, mouthwatering desserts and homemade Viennoiseries. The relaxed ambiance is also ideal for longer, laid-back lunches, with a menu to match, including an Early Dinner menu inspired by famous French Chef Herve Frerard.
Located on the ground floor of the Montien Hotel Surawong Bangkok between Rama 4 Road and Suriwongse Road, Phar-Ram 1V is a spectacular addition to the city’s wine and dining scene, by day and night.
