Capella Hotel Group has revealed plans for its first urban resort in Thailand: Capella Bangkok. Set to open in the second quarter of 2019, the luxury property will be developed on the east bank of the River of Kings (Chao Phraya River) and is the first hotel to open along the waterway in the last two decades.
Undergoing a major transformation, the surrounding Chao Phraya and Charoenkrung neighbourhood is revelling in the rise of its burgeoning local arts scene and the revival of its provincial culinary landscape. Charoenkrung and Chao Phraya have inevitably moved with the times, but unlike many districts throughout the sprawling metropolis, this specific area retains a strong sense of community identity, which puts the riverfront lifestyle centre-stage.
Capella Bangkok offers 101 suites and will feature the city’s first riverfront villas located within the highly anticipated Chao Phraya Estate.
Designed to evoke the feeling of a personal pied-à-terre with unobstructed views of the river from every room, the luxury property features a signature restaurant curated by celebrated Michelin-starred chef Mauro Colagreco; Auriga Wellness with an extensive list of carefully curated Asian therapies combining traditional techniques with contemporary solutions; and The Capella Living Room, a light-filled, river-facing lounge that will host local artisans, music and culinary delights to reflect the neighbourhood’s passion for food, wellness and culture.
Crafted local experiences, provided by the Capella Personal Assistant, will offer guests first-hand encounters with resident luminaries and inspire them to create and share their own memories about the city’s most intriguing enclave.
