After years of anticipation and work along the riverside, the Capella Bangkok is finally ready to open its doors.
The much-ballyhooed luxury hotel has been teasing its launch for some time
. Like many other new ventures, the pandemic no doubt played a role in its delayed opening. And, again, like many other ventures, the pandemic is also shaping its pricing structure and offers, at least for a little while.
From Oct 1 onward, the hotel’s “A Star Is Born” package offers nightly rates from B17,500; resort credits from B3,000-8,000 per day to use on accommodation, dining or spa treatments; round-trip limousine transfers for guests staying in villas; in-room breakfast for two each day; flexible check-in and check-out times; and more.
The luxury hotel, with sister properties in Düsseldorf, the Maldives, Singapore and Ubud, among other places, sits along Charoenkrung Road and the Chao Phraya River, south of Saphan Taksin. The property boasts 101 rooms, suites and villas overlooking the river. Among its noteworthy outlets are Côte by Mauro Colagreco, a new venture spearheaded by the chef of three-Michelin-starred Mirazur, and Stella, which promises “bespoke patisserie and libations staged in a vivid, ethereal boudoir,” according to a press release.
