Living in Bangkok, you’d be forgiven if you felt inspired to leave your own slice of apartment living to explore Bangkok’s impressive luxury hotel marketplace. There is a treasure-trove of new openings this season, and here are our top three picks to whet your appetite

1/3 Capella Bangkok

It has been in the making, some say, since 1861 when His Majesty King Rama IV sanctioned the very first paved road in what locals call Charoen Krung.

Nestled in its own paradise for what seems like a world away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok sits one of Southeast Asia’s most anticipated luxury hotels. Calling Capella Bangkok a hotel in fact doesn’t do it any justice at all, for this glamorous and picturesque urban retreat has been meticulously designed and planned by the masters that have brought to life many award-winning hotels around the world. Capella Bangkok follows a simple yet beautiful vision of tradition, discovery and individuality, mixed with twists, unexpected surprises and locally dedicated and personalised guest services. This place is where the locals can step \out of their everyday grind and into a world that will leave them inspired, rejuvenated and feeling like royalty.

With panoramic views of the iconic Chao Phraya River, Capella Bangkok comprises 101 inspired suites and villas to kick up your feet and relax in. In addition, there are plenty of other zones within the property to feast, indulge and treat yourself, from the award-winning restaurant Cote, under Michelin-starred chef Mauro Colagreco, to the intimate bar Stella and Auriga Wellness spa. With elegant ballrooms, glamorous water views and cocktails on the water’s edge, Capella Bangkok will deliver to you an experience like no other.

Wanting to participate in a cooking class or a creative workshop? Then you have certainly come to the right place.

The Kimpton Maa-Lai not only assists its many human guests in achieving memorable stays, but they also invest in the motto: Happy pets, no regrets! No longer will you have to travel alone without your best friend in tow. Pet Privileges is another way that the Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok has ingeniously separated itself from the competition. They encourage you and your out-of-town guests to travel with your furry, feathered or scaly friend, no matter the size, weight or breed, and all at no extra charge to you.
