THAILAND – Unveiling in 2020, Capella Bangkok Serves up an Eclectic Riverfront Neighborhood
Crafted moments, steeped in tradition.
Capella Bangkok, the luxurious new boutique retreat nestled on the east bank of the legendary “River of Kings”, the Chao Phraya River, will introduce guests to the rich cultural and culinary heritage of Charoenkrung, its charming and rapidly re-emerging riverside neighborhood.
Known as one of Bangkok’s main thoroughfares up until the early 20th Century, when trade and traffic still depended on the river, Charoenkrung later became a bubbling melting pot of race, religion and cuisine, and it retains this vibrant character to this day.
John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok, comments: “At Capella Bangkok, we are focused on creating luxurious and highly authentic experiences that echo the traditions of our destination. Whether it is through art, entertainment or cuisine, we strive to showcase the rich culture of the Charoenkrung district. Our cuisine will reflect the re-awakening of this captivating neighbourhood.”
Capella Bangkok offers 101 accommodations, suites and 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 urban resort features a signature restaurant curated by celebrated Three-Michelin-starred chef Mauro Colagreco whose restaurant in France, Mirazur, is ranked 1st in “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants”, a Thai specialty restaurant in a sun washed river’s edge, an intimate bar serving handcrafted cocktails and bespoke desserts, elegant riverfront-facing Ballroom including various meeting spaces for your crafted events, the Auriga Wellness with ancient traditional Thai healing therapies such as Tok Sen, and the Living Room – a light-filled, river-facing lounge that will offer local artisans, music and culinary delights hosted by Capella Culturist team to reflect the neighbourhood’s passion for food, wellness and culture.
