Visionary global hospitality brand, Capella Hotel Group is to unveil its first urban resort in Thailand: Capella Bangkok, set to open in the second quarter of 2019. Taking up residence on the east bank of the legendary River of Kings (Chao Phraya River), the new luxury property is the first to open along the waterway in the last two decades.
Undergoing a major transformation, the surrounding Chao Phraya and Charoenkrung neighbourhoods are revelling in the rise of their burgeoning local arts scene and the revival of their 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. A contemporary playground is afoot in which heritage will be rediscovered and new stories can be crafted by travellers who want to immerse themselves in one of Bangkok’s oldest neighbourhoods.
Capella Bangkok offers 101 suites and the city’s first riverfront villas located within the highly-anticipated Chao Phraya Estate, a more-than-14-acre prime waterfront land development that boasts unprecedented accessibility and 350 metres of riverfront real 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, 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.
