Magical Box of Instagramable Moments

With unfettered access to the Chao Phraya River, the new Four Seasons in Bangkok captures the spirit of the city. “The magic begins the moment you arrive, greeted by wide-open views and reflecting ponds,” notes designer Jean-Michel Gathy. As Gathy envisaged the hotel, upturning conventional notions of what an urban resort should look and feel like, the river emerged as the clear keynote.

“The design of Four Seasons expresses the fluidity and dynamism of flowing water,” he explains. “A flowing succession of indoor and outdoor spaces invites you to wander, to discover what lies just around the corner or beyond the archway.”

The hotel uses airy, light-filled spaces and cascading water features, to reflect the rhythms of the river. Two infinity pools overlook the uncluttered riverfront.  Inter-connected courtyards and resort style spa bring a breeziness into the frenetic heart of Bangkok, changing views connect you with life on the river through the day – from the bustling morning of boats passing by, to the heady glitter of Bangkok after dark.

A Dining Destination

Epicures and casual dinners alike can travel around the world at the hotel’s bars and restaurants or simply settle in for a stress-free cup of tea or coffee with unrivaled views of the Chao Phraya. Be and be seen on a trip to glamorous Buenos Aires in its heyday, raise the bar with high-style Cantonese dining, soak up the timeless Italian vibe of Lake Como or dine riverside at a French brasserie.

“Each of our restaurants tells a story,” says Executive Chef Andrea Accordi, who comes with Michelin-starred credentials and a world of experience under his toque. “Everything – the food, the drinks, the décor, the service – comes together to create a dynamic, sensory culinary experience.” With leadership from top hotel and standalone restaurants, the management mindset is that of independent restaurants, offering autonomous control rarely found in hotels. Dinners can expect innovative menus and events, and competitive pricing for the Bangkok market.  

Art in the Details

Along with the river, creativity takes center stage at Four Seasons with a series of one-of-a-kind artworks conceptualized by Gathy and crafted in collaboration with Thai artists at Dong Sculpture. As Gathy points out, “Specially creating works of art for a hotel is unusual for an interior designer. It gave us a chance to create pieces that really reflect the distinctive personality of this property.”

Thailand’s modern artists are showcased at the hotel’s ART Space, curated in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Bangkok. Destination insiders take you deeper into Bangkok’s flourishing creative culture with after-hours gallery hopping and in-the-know events. Located at the center of the riverside district, Four Seasons also offers easy access to intriguing boutiques and hipster cafes.

In the hotel’s guest rooms, high ceilings, picture windows and an abundance of natural light create a sense of expansiveness and possibility – a rarity among hotels in Bangkok. Signature suites come with a large river-facing rooftop terrace, ideal for brunch with a view.
