Rising above one of the city’s most iconic areas, the all-new Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is a 3.6 hectare (9 acre) riverside oasis on Charoenkrung Road. Anticipated to open in late 2019, the Hotel has been assembling a team of senior executives and specialist talent who are currently shaping what will become the city’s ultimate hospitality experience.
