Taking its place among the prominent landmarks along the River of Kings (Chao Phraya River) is none other than the historic Praya Palazzo Boutique Hotel where one can experience history, elegance, serenity and last, but not least, a nostalgic, culinary journey back to a past era – all at one place and at one time.
Take a well-deserved break at this charming, nearly a century-old riverside retreat for a blissful, inner-city escape @Bt4,902 nett per night for a single or double/twin room inclusive of a set lunch featuring Thai Royal cuisine from heirloom recipes crafted by court ladies during Thailand’s glorious, bygone era. A 15% discount for dinner at Praya Dining is part of the package.
The traditional set lunch menu highlights include such traditional appetisers as Goong Sarong (Chicken Satay and Fried Shrimp Wrapped in Noodles) and Sangwa Goong Pla Duk Fu (Roasted Shrimp Dipping with Crispy Catfish). Also served is the very special, vintage concoction by the court ladies in the Royal Palace in the past, and rarely found in other restaurants – Run Juan Pork Soup (traditional Spicy Pork Soup with Shrimp Paste) made from Shrimp Paste left over from the Royal Dinner Tables, in addition to main dishes comprising such popular Thai favourites as Green Beef Curry with Roti , Deep Fried Sea Bass with Tamarind Sauce and Wok-fried Broccoli with Crab Meat served with rice. The scrumptious meal would not be complete without the mouth-watering Tapioca Balls and Young Coconut Meat in Coconut Milk dessert and the finest seasonal fresh fruits
The Palladian architecture Praya Palazzo is accessible only by boat. The hotel shuttle boat provides a 24-hour service to and from either the ThaPhraArthit Pier or Rajathiwas Temple Pier (where parking is available).
