Capella, masters in the craft of stay
Slated to open this summer, Capella Bangkok is already creating a buzz due to its location on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. Set in the heart of the beautiful neighbourhoods of Charoenkrung and Chao Phraya, all 101 suites and villas will give guests a panoramic view of the majestic river. If you are someone who loves nature and water, then this has to be your next luxury stay. Some of the rooms will come equipped with sky gardens and outdoor living space. Capella Bangkok’s 350-metre riverside setting, along with a number of personal assistants will provide the guests with a lifetime experience.
The Capella Living Room, a river-facing lounge filled with natural light, will host local musicians, chefs and artists to reflect the neighbourhood's love for wellness, food and culture.
The cuisine by Argentinian Chef Mauro Colagreco will help in giving the guests a delightful experience. The property will have two riverside gourmet restaurants, a riverfront terrace for al fresco dining with water views and if that is not enough, it will also have specialised desserts and craft cocktails bar. Guests can relax in Capella’s award-winning Auriga Wellness spa which offers a variety of holistic Asian spa therapies.
"The location may be the centrepiece, but the accommodation is designed as a traveller’s pied-à-terre: somewhere familiar, sophisticated and constructed around relaxation and exploration. Capella Bangkok balances its presence at the heart of a bustling city with a cocoon of tranquillity once you step inside," per the hotel's website.
