Chao Phraya District Gets New Capella Bangkok Luxury Hotel

Bangkok’s Chao Phraya riverside continues its renaissance with its first luxury resident in more than 20 years.

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.

John Blanco, General Manager of Capella Bangkok, said, “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.

“The feeling is 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.”

Undergoing a major transformation, the surrounding Chao Phraya and Charoenkrung neighbourhoods are revelling in the rise of its burgeoning local arts scene and the revival of its 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 new contemporary playground with a historic legacy just waiting to be discovered by travellers who seek to immerse themselves in one of Bangkok’s oldest neighbourhoods.

John added, “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.”

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.

In addition, Auriga Wellness offers 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.
