Banyan Tree Bangkok - Saffron Cruise

Banyan Tree Bangkok — a 5-star luxury hotel in a city filled with exotic food, majestic temples and exciting shopping districts — has announced a new dine and cruise experience along Thailand’s River of Kings.

Saffron Cruise, the new riverboat cruise service by luxury hotel Banyan Tree Bangkok, is aimed at discerning diners and culture aficionados who crave for a taste of Thailand’s rich cultural heritage. The dining experience blends both modern and traditional influences, with chic styling touches, superb cuisine and a thrilling line up of entertainment that celebrate the heart and soul of Thailand.

Designed for the ultimate romantic setting, the river cruise experience welcomes guests on a 38-metre-long vessel which provides a 360-degree view of the river and the surrounding city. It features live entertainment and cultural shows, a show-kitchen restaurant, as well as a bar up on the open-air main deck, for alfresco daytime and evening dining.

The Moon Deck features a bar and lounge, not to mention the theatre of the scenic Sky Bridge which gives passengers a unique perspective of the river’s rippling waters and spectacular sunsets — the best way to view and experience Bankok!

Journey through the river

Inspired by Banyan Tree’s celebrated signature Thai restaurant Saffron, the river cruise service offers sumptuous Thai dishes and international cuisine that are masterfully prepared and creatively presented.

The journey through the Chao Phraya River brings guests up close to landmarks such as Wat Arun/Temple of Dawn, The Grand Palace, Asiatique and vintage Royal Barge Museum.
