In 1982, as Bangkok celebrated its bicentennial, a hotel was designed and built as a meeting place of two worlds: one of efficiency and practicality, and the other of Thai graciousness and tradition. The layout of the hotel was based on a typical Thai home and features two atriums or courtyards connected to its main area. Corridors and room entryways face a huge tropical garden that offers serenity and respite.
Almost a decade later, this grand architectural landmark is now known as Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok. Over the last few years, it has been refurbished and restored to perhaps even greater grandeur, and has consistently won awards and accolades for it hospitality, design and service.
Located on Rajadamri Road – One of the city’s most famous boulevards- the hotel features 340 superbly decorated rooms, including 24 suites and eight unique Garden cabanas. These are luxurious environments that reflect the design philosophies of this urban resort. Thai silks, cotton and sumptuous chenille fabrics pay homage to its Thai heritage, accented by a colour scheme of powder red, gold and celadon green. All the rooms at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok are amongst the delicious Thai Restaurant in Bangkok. Good food complements excellent design, with bottles of Thai spices lining the restaurant’s teak shelves, and gunnysacks of rice and salt sitting on ledges around the room.
Enjoy the hotel’s other dining outlets as well: Biscotti, an Italian restaurant; Madison, contemporary American steakhouse; and Shintaro, which serves innovative Japanese cuisine. All are designed by award-winning Tony Chi, and draw a regular crowd; both day and night.
Discerning shoppers can take their pick of premier stores at the Parichart Shopping Arcade. You’ll find the best Thai silks, arts, crafts and gems, as well as salons and tailors. And if you need a massage to soothe aching muscles, the hotel’s Health Club boasts treatments like Thai and Oriental massages. Indeed, there is something for everyone at this Thai legend.
