Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort’sexceptional interior design and decoration, characterised by modern, simple style and durable materials, leave an indelible impression on guests. The distinct feature that elevates our design ethos is the adaptability of each treatment room; the lighting and music can be fine-tuned to align with the treatment and personal preference of each guest. This immersive approach crafts a harmonious environment for body and mind relaxation. Our mission is to create an ambience of serene natural tranquillity, helping guests rejuvenate and reconnect with their inner selves. This remarkable experience owes its existence to the meticulous efforts of dwp’s architectural and interior design team, who have faithfully interpreted our vision into a holistic sanctuary of physical and mental relaxation.


Kanidtha Pattanapanitchakul, Design Director from dwp | Design Worldwide Partnership, unravels the aesthetic tapestry woven into this project. “The design journey of Mövenpick BDMS Wellness Resort was embarked upon with the theme of ‘Rebalance + Reconnect’. We derived our inspiration from Park Nai Lert, a city forest famed for its towering

trees and serene ambiance. Additionally, we incorporated traditional Thai healing philosophy that identifies the four elements – earth, water, wind, and fire – as life’s foundation, enhancing the space’s appropriateness for healing and treatments. The resulting ambiance is one of verdant relaxation, nestled in the heart of Bangkok’s Chidlom district.
Our focus on the aesthetics of relaxation led us to meticulously select project materials. For instance, natural colour wood veneers adorn the open floor plan to induce warmth and comfort, juxtaposed with textured wall coverings for a touch of luxury. Carefully balancing natural and artificial light, we ensure a warm ambiance while maintaining sustainability through the use of LEED-certified light bulbs. As a testament to dwp’s commitment to sustainability, the space is not only aesthetically pleasing and functional, but also minimises its environmental footprint, offering guests the best holistic experience.”

Speaking on the upcoming projects, Ms. Kanidtha reveals, “In the third and fourth trimesters of this year, dwp will continue to prioritise sustainable design, embracing AI design technology. We also incorporate Generative Design, an approach utilising computer algorithms for optimal solutions based on specified input parameters, allowing us to achieve the most efficient and sustainable designs. We firmly believe these technologies will lead us into a new era of design possibilities. By integrating such advanced technology, dwp is redefining sustainable design, setting industry benchmarks and leading the way into the future.”
