Sukhumvit Legacy

Back then, Sukhumvit was known as Bangkapi. The area was surrounded by rice paddy fields and local fruit plantations. Land was cheap and the atmosphere was quiet and cosy. So many members of the royal families moved out into the area, especially Soi Aree [Sukhumvit 26], making it

Concept

Originally it got started with a romantic concept of building an idyllic place for young newlyweds with limited resources. The architect who made this concept into reality was Cambridge educated, His Serene Highness Prince PrasomsavastiSukhasvasti. Today, this small villa is still standing and still has not lost its charm.

Then in 1989, Khunchai Nui and his lovely wife, Khun Aim-OrnVudhijaya [Eady] decided to build a 4-storey apartment building, comprising  24 individual suites. 

The building was conceptualized after the little villa where the royal couple had resided. In a humble fashion, each of the suites consists of a small living room, a small kitchen/ pantry, a master bedroom, a bathroom and a balcony, with lots of storage space. Vimala Suites was designed by KhunPanit Nil-ubol, construction plan and drawings were co-signed by Dr. SumetJumsai, a well-known architect who was the first Thai to have received the world’s most prestigious “Good Design Award”.

The family’s mission now is to revive the old spirits of Vimala Suites as well as to share, a quiet and cosy experience that is so sought after but rarely found in Bangkok, the City of Angels.

The name & History

Vimala Suites is named in honour of Her Highness Princess Vimalachatra, King Rama 5’s granddaughter, who is the mother of M.R. ChalermchatraVudhijaya (Khunchai Nui) and M.R. PhromchatraSvasti (Khunying Noi-Noy).

After the end of World War 2, about 80 years ago, Khunchai Nui’s father His Serene Highness Prince Udaya C. Vudhijaya decided to move his family from The Vudhijaya Mansion in LarnLuang Road to the present compound in SoiAree [Sukhumvit 26].

Back then, Sukhumvit was known as Bangkapi. The area was surrounded by rice paddy fields and local fruit plantations. Land was cheap and the atmosphere was quiet and cosy. So, many members of the royal families moved out into the area especially Sukhumvit 26, making it today’s one of the most expensive residential spot and quiet and cosy place to live in. This is how we got started.

So many members of the royal families moved out into the area, especially Soi Aree [Sukhumvit 26], making it today’s one of the most exclusive residential spot and a peaceful area to live in. 

Originally, the compound got started with a romantic idea of building an idyllic place for the young newlyweds, with limited resources. The architect who made this concept into reality was a well-known Cambridge educated, His Serene Highness Prince Prasomsavasti Sukhasvasti. Today, this small idyllic bungalow is still standing, and yet, has not lost its charm. 

In 1982, Khun Chai and his wife, Khun Aim-Orn Vudhijaya [Eady] decided to build a 4-storey apartment building, comprising 28 individual suites. The building was conceptualized after the little bungalow where the royal couple had resided. Although Prince Udayachalermlabh Vudhijaya passed away long before his only grandson, Mom Luang Apichit Vudhijaya [Art] was born, Princess Vimalachatra had still lived in the compound as the “Head of the family” until she passed away in 2009.
