Slated to open in the second quarter of 2019, Capella Bangkok is already creating a fiery buzz  due to its location on the east bank of the Chao Phraya River where, in the past two decades, only a few luxury hotels have opened along the riverfront.

Presenting their first urban resort in Thailand, Capella Hotel Group intends to bring city-dwellers and out-of-towners back to the river-enriched culture which was once at the epicentre of the life of the country.

The Capella Living Room

Set within a monumental city area next to the Chao Phraya River and in the midst of one of Bangkok’s oldest neighbourhoods, “Charoenkrung”, Capella Bangkok will soon become Bangkok’s next go-to spot for riverside luxury stays, featuring flourishing culinary experiences (both street and haute cuisine) and the artful landscapes of the neighbourhood. And unlike many hotels nestled in the hectic parts of the city, Capella Bangkok is situated on a piece of land that offers both quietude and a sense of old town that is complemented by all the waterfront communities surrounded by it.

The luxe hotel will include 101 suites and Bangkok’s first riverfront villas, which will all offer beauteous and vivid views of the river. Designed to conjure up a personal pied-à-terre feel, every suite will also boast large glass windows with views of the magnificent River of Kings. Integrating classic yet elegant fashion with Thai accents in its design scheme, the hotel will unearth a graceful vibe that only luxury can exude.

In addition to the suites and villas, Capella Bangkok also features a quintessential restaurant curated by the far-famed, Michelin-starred Argentinian Chef Mauro Colagreco and an Auriga Wellness spa which offers a variety of holistic Asian spa therapies, plus an airy lounge, ‘The Capella Living Room’, which will host many of the neighbourhood’s up-and-coming artists and artisans regularly as a way for them to showcase their crafts in music and culinary creations. Their pop-up events will be sure to evoke a sense of strong community through a shared appreciation of food and music.

All in all, those were just a few main mentions of what Capella Bangkok is set to offer to its guests. The hotel will no doubt be the perfect riverfront hideaway to try this year where guests will be able to splurge on first-class and five-starred service. We can’t wait for it to open!
