101 suites and villas each offer a different perspective of the beauty outside, with unobstructed views of the river. 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.

One of the most exciting features of the Capella Bangkok is cuisine by Argentinian chef Mauro Colagreco, whose Mirazur restaurant in the south of France, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea in Menton near the border with Italy racks up the awards.

Not only does he hold two Michelin stars, but Mirazur also has a high ranking on the “World’s 50 Best” list. The Capella Bangkok will have two gourmet restaurants plus a riverfront terrace for al fresco dining with water views. What’s more, the hotel will offer a bar specializing in desserts and creative craft cocktails.

“The revival of the riverside has been happening organically for some years now and it’s incredible to experience the enthusiasm everybody has for a return to the city’s original roots,” says John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok. “It’s reminiscent of the redevelopment of historic – and often artistic – waterfront locales in other major metropolises such as the Meatpacking District in Manhattan and Belém in Lisbon, and I have every confidence that it will have the same uplifting effect on the city as a whole.”

“I am sure our guests will enjoy exploring the locale and discovering the diverse street food stalls, riverfront seafood markets and decades-old shophouse restaurants including the legendary Thip Volcanic Fried Mussel & Oyster, in addition to the fashionable new eateries celebrating Bangkok’s bygone culinary roots,” Blanco continues. “Guests are also sure to be enamoured by groups of all ages performing tai chi and yoga along the river and games from badminton to native takraw.”
