Capella Hotel Group launches first Thai riverfront property
Capella is no amateur when it comes to crafting luxury hospitality experiences that provide superlative getaways for its guests to escape the urban cacophony in a raucous urban jungle, as evidenced by its previous successes in Shanghai, Bali and Singapore. Now, guests in Bangkok can look forward to the same Capella experience with the brand’s first opening in Thailand.
Situated between Thailand’s revered river, the Chao Phraya River and Charoenkrung Road, the property offers unimpeded and unparalleled views of Thailand’s legendary river and easy access to the Thai capital’s most popular cafes, bars, museums and art hunts. Guests who simply wish to relax and go with the flow may even opt for the exclusive Capella Curates and just let Capella Culturalists put together a series of local experiences based on each guest’s individual preferences.
Capella Bangkok offers guests 101 guestrooms, suites and villas as well as a number of exquisite dining offerings and a focus on wellness facilities. The guestrooms at the hotel range from 61sq m to 595sq m and the villas are finished with an outdoor jacuzzi plunge pool. Each room and the hotel itself have been master-planned by Andy Miller and Richard Scott Wilson, lead architects at Hamiltons International, both previously of Fosters + Partners. Elegant minimalistic furnishings and design touches transplant the guests into a state of calm with relative ease.
Scintillating gourmet options await the guest. Dining experiences include Côte by Mauro Colagreco, whose three-Michelin-starred restaurant in France, Mirazur, clinched first place in “The World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards” in 2019. Côte will serve “contemporary reinterpretations of traditional recipes” from the French and Italian Riviera. The al fresco Phra Nakhon restaurant will serve “time-honored Thai recipes of the district,” while Stella will serve patisserie and libations staged in an ethereal boudoir.
