Capella Bangkok

Bangkok's stunning riverfront sanctuary
VERIFIED LUXURY

Capella Bangkok, located along the east bank of the capital city’s landmark Chao Phraya River, redefines the meaning of an urban resort. Part of the Chao Phraya Estate development, the contemporary, block-shaped building — which opened in late 2020 — sits just a 10-minute walk away from the city’s Old Town district. All 101 guest rooms, suites and villas show off sweeping floor-to-ceiling river views and open up to panoramic patios, sala lounges and lush gardens.

Playing on the district’s East-meets-West mentality, Singapore-based architecture firm Hamiltons International, along with interior design studio BAMO (behind Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora), incorporated modern elements interspersed with Thai touches like rattan armchairs, latticework headboards and art inspired by traditional techniques.

With an omakase-focused patisserie and a restaurant helmed by a decorated chef, Capella Bangkok — the brand’s first hotel in Thailand — offers plenty of ways to indulge in style — the best, perhaps, being from the comfort of your own private plunge pool.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Airy waterfront restaurant Phra Nakhon sources local ingredients from farmers and fishermen for its traditional Thai cuisine, which is based on rustic family recipes and regional cooking styles from chef Wichian Trirattanavatin’s childhood in rural Thailand.
  • Soak up the surroundings from the rooftop pool or rebalance at the Auriga Wellness spa, which delivers tailor-made treatments modeled after ancient Thai, Chinese, Indian and European healing rituals — some of which incorporate local products like mung bean, black sesame and riceberry. Take your pick between acupressure-based, Shang Dynasty-inspired qi or something more modern, like a black diamond facial from London luxe skincare line 111SKIN.
  • The Bangkok hotel’s seven over-the-top villas — the first of their kind in the city — sit riverside and are outfitted with water-facing daybeds and Jacuzzi plunge pools for an ambiance you’d more expect to find on one of the Thai islands than in a cosmopolitan city center.
  • Out of the three restaurants, the pièce de résistance is the antique-mirror-lined Côte by Mauro Colagreco, who brings a taste of his heralded cuisine from Mirazur on the French Riviera. The seasonally driven eatery serves nine-course “carte blanche” tastings, as well as à la carte dishes—plus a wine list of more than 550 labels, 70 percent of which are organic or biodynamic. The restaurant also boasts the largest collection of grower champagne in the city.
  • The sultry, Art Deco-meets-Asian boudoir-style cocktail bar, Stella, serves up haute nibbles like caviar and oysters alongside a list of libations that pay homage to some of Asia’s famous female heroes and warriors. The best way to indulge is with dessert omakase of made-to-order pastries paired with a selection of whimsical craft cocktails.

Things to Know

  • A personal Capella culturist (the luxury hotel’s version of a concierge or butler service) can arrange for a Mercedes pickup and VIP fast-track service at the airport to speed you through immigration, in addition to curated tours of the city.
  • The Living Room lounge acts as both a cultural salon and meditation center, where monks lead moments of mindfulness and local experts offer lessons on everything from Khon masked dance to traditional Thai musical instruments.
