A popular stopover on long-haul business trips, Bangkok is gaining in popularity for business and leisure stays. It has been made even more appealing with the opening of a brand new luxury hotel.
“Bangkok is a truly engaging and incredible city that inspires me with its energy and rich heritage,” says Jean-Michel Gathy, designer of the hotel and founder of multiple award-winning firm Denniston.
“The core challenge that drew me to this extraordinary project was the chance to craft the ultimate urban resort experience and at the same time to create an incomparable city hotel that would not only complement but also enhance its unique, expansive riverside location,” added Gathy
As you enter the hotel, you are received by nature before the atmosphere transitions into something grander when you move into the series of intertwined courtyards, which the hotel grounds are arranged around. The hotel also features modern meeting and function spaces as well as an art collection curated by Gathy himself: a homage to the country’s craftmanship and artistry.
Gathy embraced an urban resort concept as he designed the 299-guest roomed hotel, focusing on effortlessly blending outdoor and indoor spaces with features such as glass walls, welcoming abundant natural light, a riverfront grand ballroom with a vast outdoor terrace and entertainment offerings along the 200 metres of waterfront.
The spirited water of the Chao Phraya River streams past newly built Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok. The water element is infused into the hotel with pools and flowing water cascading throughout the grounds, echoing the raw energy of the river from the high ceilings. The hotel is moulded with touches of Thai influence, seamlessly unifying the natural beauty of Thailand with both historic and modern aspects of Bangkok; and finally set with the imbued DNA of the classic Four Seasons brand.
The hotel is accepting reservations for arrivals beginning early 2020.
