This month we are focusing on the stunning new urban retreat experience Capella Bangkok. This highly anticipated opening is the first property in Thailand for Capella Hotels and Resorts, the award-winning hospitality group which focuses on crafting authentic cultural experiences for its guests.
Capella Bangkok offers 101 guestrooms, suites and villas, each of which boasts uninterrupted views of Thailand’s revered Chao Phraya River.
The location was selected due to its access to the river and also Charoenkrung Road, Bangkok’s oldest paved road. In this dynamic neighbourhood, tradition and cultural heritage sit alongside the city’s most contemporary cafes, bars and art galleries.
Capella Bangkok is a cocoon of tranquillity in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. Each of the sophisticated accommodation is fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and a balcony or veranda. Every riverside Villa and Veranda accommodation also features an outdoor jacuzzi plunge pool.
Spearheading the F&B offering is Côte by Mauro Colagreco, whose three Michelin-starred restaurant in France, Mirazur, took the top spot in “The World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards” in 2019. Here he presents a contemporary reinterpretation of traditional dishes from the French and Italian rivieras.
Highlighting the district’s unique, time-honoured Thai recipes is the alfresco Phra Nakhon restaurant, while Stella serves a heady combination of jewel-like patisserie and alchemy cocktails in a dazzling setting.
At the heart of the property is The Living Room, a fixture of all Capella’s properties. Here guests can enjoy majestic river views and meet with the hotel’s Culturist – who will help curate itineraries and teach a few Siamese phrases – before exploring the neighbourhood. The space has an adjoining terrace and its own programme of events, such as practicing mindfulness with a Wat Suthi monk and listening to stories about the history of Charoenkrung Road.
The Capella Bangkok’s signature spa sanctuary, Auriga Wellness, is set to open by the end of 2020.
