Home-grown luxury hotel brand Sala Resorts and Spas is getting ready to unveil their latest property, a seriously boutique Bangkok venture with some seriously great views.
Sala Rattanakosin, named after the 1792 Kingdom of Rattanakosin, is accepting reservations starting April 15th.
Sala Rattanakosin is located on the Chao Phraya River, across the water from the historic Temple of the Dawn. The neighborhood is known as Old Town, a formerly walled part of the city, and is home to many of Bangkok’s most famous attractions including the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Temple of the Reclining Buddha (Wat Pho) and the National Museum. The hotel is also just a few minutes’ walk to fantastic culture, food and shopping.
With just 17 rooms, Sala Rattanakosin is the definition of a boutique property. Most rooms feature river views and the top-end Arun River View Suite offers private views of the Temple of the Dawn (Wat Arun). Design sketches show rooms decorated in a sophisticated palate of white, black, slate and grey with oversized picture windows. All rooms come with king-size beds, rain showers, large flat screen televisions and stereo systems with USB ports and iPod access. Currently, rates range from THB 3,100 to 9,000 (USD $104-$300) per night.
Dining options begin with The River, featuring fresh, local flavors put together by English-born Executive Chef Tony Wrigley. His creations are served either in the indoor dining rooms or the outdoor over-water dining deck. Open-air rooftop bar and lounge The Roof offers the perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing or business with a beer, cocktail, wine or light snack. Menu items from either restaurant are available for room service.
Sala Rattanakosin also includes an in-room spa service with a menu of treatments. Hotel staff are available to arrange outside activities for guests ranging from nightlife tours to temple excursions. Finally, for extra-special events such as weddings and parties, the entire hotel property can be reserved.
