Luxury Redefined: 98 Wireless, Bangkok’s Most Exclusive Residence
May 31, 2017 | BY Rachel Read
Sansiri’s latest property raises the bar in luxury living
Bangkok has long been established as one of Asia’s leading cosmopolitan cities—and in 98 Wireless, it now has a world-class luxury residence to match.
Built by renowned Thai developer Sansiri, this magnificent 25-storey condominium is located on a 3,200 square metre plot on Wireless Road. One of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Bangkok, it is renowned for its privacy and exclusivity, sitting next to the US Ambassador’s Residence, but with high-end shops, restaurants and green spaces conveniently nearby.

The complex features 77 two-to-three bedroom residences, including two penthouses and a super-penthouse comprising the building’s top two floors, all decorated in the utmost sophistication—making this the ultimate in luxury living.
Acclaimed New York designer Anne Carson, in collaboration with international boutique brand Ralph Lauren Home, created 98 Wireless’ contemporary-yet-classic design magazine-worthy interiors – as exemplified by the building’s showstopping lobby, which features a sweeping grand staircase, Portuguese limestone floors and a breathtaking three-storey crystal chandelier, the largest ever made by Ralph Lauren Home (taking over a year to create by hand).
Meanwhile, walls and ceilings were crafted by Hyde Park Mouldings, whose custom plasterwork has graced global landmarks like Buckingham Palace and the White House, whilst the property’s sustainable energy-efficient design has seen it receive the United States Green Building Council’s prestigious LEED certification—the first residential property internationally to do so.
This refined design continues to 98 Wireless’ communal areas, which effortlessly pair functionality with elegance. The residence’s Tea Room is inspired by European salons and has been designed as a relaxed environment for families and friends to linger in, with a grand piano and bar; meanwhile, the Business Lounge, filled with books and masculine bronze and brass detailing, is the perfect place to work in style.
The property is also home to an array of rare and collectable antiques sourced from around the world, including stunning nineteenth-century tables and closets, plus a sculpture masterpiece from famed British artist Anne Curry.
With a philosophy that “the best comes as standard”, it’s unsurprising that no detail is too small at 98 Wireless. Sansiri’s design team travelled to Italy to hand-select the pure marble used in the fit and finish of each and every residence, whilst all fixtures and fittings come from world-renowned brands chosen for their state-of-the-art excellence – including SieMatic kitchenware, Gaggenau appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerators and wine cabinets, Kallista bathroom ware and Baldwin hand-crafted door handles and locks.
Residents at 98 Wireless also have access to the complex’s swimming pool and jacuzzi, spa and massage room, fitness studio, multi-functional exercise room, steam room, private meeting rooms and children’s playroom.
All residences are accessed by private lift, with on-site underground parking boasting supercar spaces and EV charger stations; residents can also take advantage of the exclusive use of the property’s brand new Bentley limousine, decked out in British racing car green.
For the first time ever at a residential property, luxury experts Quintessentially will be offering an on-site concierge service to ensure every request – however small – is catered for, whilst 24-hour valet parking, home maintenance, doorman and security services ensure residents’ needs are met whatever the hour.
Combining exquisite design, exceptional craftsmanship, incredible services and an unbeatable location, it’s time to come meet the most desirable luxury property in Bangkok for yourself.
