The city of Ayutthaya, sitting on the Chao Phraya River, was once upon a time known as the “Venice of the East” and is now home to Sala Hospitality Group’s newest addition, Sala Ayutthaya- though not as early as originally planned and reported here.
With a view that will overwhelm your senses, this latest addition directly faces Wat Phutthaisawan, a history drenched reminder of another world. The temple was known as the “Monastery of Lord Buddha of the Heavens”, and heaven is exactly where you will think you are upon stepping into Sala Ayutthaya.
Offering 26 rooms and suites of indulgent luxury; this ultra modern 5 star property includes a 2-level duplex perched on the riverfront and one bedroom pool suite villas to satisfy the most particular of guests.
A riverside restaurant and bar gives patrons a front row seat of the picturesque river and historical temples surrounding the property. The menu includes both Thai and international cuisine, with an expansive wine list, beers and cocktails. Seating is available in either indoor air-conditioned comfort, or outdoors on an impressive deck area from which you can soak up the ambiance of this ancient city. Spa and massage facilities complete the intimate experience that is sure to be found when staying here. Lush bedding and decor in soft muted tones, complimentary toiletries and spacious stylish rooms, show no compromise when it comes to comfort.
Sala Ayutthaya, set in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a sublime and stunning addition to the existing Sala properties located in Khaoyai, Bangkok and Chiang Mai. The Sala Hospitality Group also manage the beach properties, Sala Samui Resort and Spa, and Sala Phuket Resort and Spa.
Sala Ayutthaya is the ideal place from which to explore this unique area of archeological and ancient sites of ruins that once was the Ayutthaya Kingdom. The splendor of the old city can be imagined by the sheer size of the huge monasteries and towers, whereas no imagination is necessary when contemplating the splendor of Sala Ayutthaya.
