Drawing on its reputation for elegance and personalization, the Capella Bangkok is nestled along the east bank of the Chao Phraya River, providing panoramic views from all 101 rooms, suites, and villas. The hotel has also thrown a couple of hats into the capital city’s ring of culinary offerings with two gourmet restaurants and a waterfront patio area that’s perfect for al-fresco dining. Three-Michelin-starred Argentinian chef Mauro Colagreco is the mastermind behind much of Capella’s cuisine, and there is a specialty bar offering desserts and artisan cocktails. Among other amenities, there is an oriental tea lounge, open-air spa, outdoor pool, and even an in-house Capella Library. Finally, in trademark Capella fashion, personal assistants are made available to guests to ensure a luxury stay in Bangkok.
Chao Phraya Views: Every guest room, suite, and villa at Capella Bangkok - as well as the dining venues and many of the facilities - boast river views. What's more, the sun sets just across the river from the property, casting gorgeous orange hues over the hotel and providing superlative evening sundowner locations from anywhere on the grounds.
A New Riviera: The Riviera theme continues in Capella Bangkok's fine dining restaurant, Côte by Mauro Colagreco, where the three-Michelin-star chef has reinterpreted French-Italian Riviera flavors, inspired by traditional recipes and culinary heritage.
Sophistication & Luxury: From contemporary design featuring custom artwork by local Thai artists, to the expansive wellness center with water therapy and locally-inspired treatments, to a desserts-and-cocktails salon bedecked in black and gold, the Capella Bangkok exudes finesse.
