Luxury hotel group Four Seasons is set to open its latest property in Bangkok, located on the Chao Phraya River, on December 18.
The Four Seasons Hotel and Residences Bangkok at Chao Phraya River is set along 200 metres of riverfront, with hotel interior and landscape consultancy by Jean Michel Gathy of Denniston and architectural consultancy by Hamiltons International. The design connects indoor and outdoor spaces “through a series of cascading buildings, courtyards, terraces and water features” along Charoen Krung Road.
The hotel comprises 299 guest rooms and suites, each featuring high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows with a mixture of river and garden views, alongside 366 private residences designed by Hamiltons International.
A 2,500 sqm wellness centre designed by GOCO Hospitality is arranged around the hotel’s Palm Courtyard, featuring a 30-metre fitness pool, nine treatment rooms, beauty salons, a gym, vitality pools and steam rooms. The hotel also boasts two infinity pools which overlook the river.
The hotel will feature six restaurant and bar venues, with design by Dennison and AvroKo. BKK Social Club is located in the central courtyard in a tropical space flanked by outdoor terraces, with one reserved for cigar smokers. The bar “promises to herald a new era in Asia’s high energy bar scene”, serving cocktails crafted with fresh Thai produce alongside Latin American-inspired dishes.
Other dining venues include authentic Cantonese restaurant Yu Ting Yuan led by Michelin-starred chef Qui Xiaogui; Italian cuisine at the Lake Como-inspired Riva del Fiume; French restaurant Brasserie Palmier; signature afternoon tea at The Lounge; and neighbourhood-style pastry shop Café Madeleine. The hotel will also offer service at the two infinity pools, and in-room dining.
Other facilities include a kids’ club, a private boat dock, and extensive event spaces including a waterfront ballroom and terrace.
The luxury hotel group recently opened its second property in San Francisco, along with its first Spanish property in Madrid, and announced plans to add properties in Sicily and the Mexican coastal destination of Tamarindo.
In response to the rise in remote working during the Covid-19 pandemic, the group has also launched an extended stay offer with exclusive benefits for guests staying for 30 days or more.
