Capella Bangkok celebrated its opening and the arrival of its first guest, when it welcomed local Bangkokian, Ms Lina Liu, through its doors for a weekend staycation, helping to set the stage for what the hospitality firm believes will be the beginning of a renaissance of the Chao Phraya River as the most desirable destination in the city.
On hand to meet Ms Liu (above left), Capella Bangkok GM, John Blanco (above right) enthused about the eyecatching property’s potential: “It’s a signature moment for us on an auspicious day. We have worked hard to bring the Capella brand to Bangkok and look forward to welcoming many more guests first from Thailand and later from throughout the world as markets reopen.”
Situated within the gracious Chao Phraya Estate, Capella Bangkok offers 101 guestrooms, suites and villas, each with uninterrupted views of Thailand’s revered waterway. The location was selected due to its access to the storied Chao Phraya River and Charoenkrung Road – Bangkok’s oldest paved road where guests can discover the soul of the city, to many their own backyard, as a dedicated team of Capella Culturist lead the way around the historical neighbourhood.
